End of blood transfusions?

Post by daniel

Researchers at University of Virginia School of Medicine find that mice injected with flu virus began producing large amounts of red blood cells, in development that could remove need for blood transfusions.

Scientists have discovered an antibody that forces the body to keep producing unlimited blood, in a development that could remove the need for blood transfusions.

Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine found that mice who were injected with the flu virus began producing large amounts of red blood cells.

They now say this could represent a significant step forward in the battle against anaemia and help people suffering from diabetes, kidney disease or cancer.

Scientists say that with further development the discovery could lead to doctors being able to turn on red blood cell production in humans whenever necessary.
