Lab-grown blood given to people in world-first clinical trial

Summary by Ground News
Blood that has been grown in a laboratory has been put into people in a world-first clinical trial, UK researchers say. Tiny amounts - equivalent to a couple of spoonfuls - are being tested to see how it performs inside the body. Further trials are needed before clinical use, but scientists say the research marks a big step in improving treatment for patients with rare blood types or complex transfusion needs.
