Scientists make blood from human stem cells

Australian scientists say they have found a way to make blood cells in volume out of human master cells, which could eventually lead to production of safe blood cells for transfusions and organ transplants. Synthetically produced red blood cells would, in theory, overcome the concerns about dangerous infections that can be transmitted from blood donors to patients worldwide. But researchers said it would probably take years for scientists to get to the stage where blood cells could be made in large enough quantities for transfusions.
