Reasoning
Surgeons and researchers in three countries recently collaborated to perform the world’s first transplant of a body part using stem cell technology. A 30 year old Colombian woman, Claudia Castillo, was left barely able to breathe following a tuberculosis infection that had damaged the branch of the trachea leading to her left lung. Doctors in Spain took a section of windpipe from a deceased person, and then researchers in Italy purged the donated windpipe of all its cells to leave an empty frame of tissue. A team of doctors in Bristol grew stem cells from Ms Castillo’s own bone marrow which the Italian doctors then coated onto the frame of the section of donor windpipe. The section of windpipe was then transplanted into the patient’s body. After five months, the patient is well and shows no signs of the rejection normally associated with transplants.
