Patient Gets First Lab-Grown Blood Transfusion Ever.

Although scientists have just managed the miracle of turning rice into blood, a team from Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris have made blood from bone marrow stem cells.

Their first patient, who received this artificial blood transfusion, is doing fine. Currently, the blood cells look like their acting like normal blood cells.

Could donors become a thing of the past? Very possible.

Just don’t let any vampires in that laboratory.
