  • Overview

    Recently, scientists were able to engineer for the first time a trachea developed from a patient's own stem cells, wherein a donor's trachea was lined with the patient's stem cells to prevent transplant rejection. Immunosuppressive therapy was not necessary, and the patient remains in good condition months after the surgery.
