Scientists have found a way to make red blood cells
We generally only hear about blood shortages during a natural disaster, but the truth is that blood banks are often in short supply. That's a risky situation for patients who undergo intensive surgery and may need several pints of blood in order to recover. Reporting in the journal Cell Stem Cell, scientists describe a promising new way for producing precious red blood cells, which perform the critical oxygen-ferrying duties of blood, at volumes greater than current methods typically yield.
