ABSTRACT
The article discusses ways in which scientists deceive patients' immune systems in order to allow for organ transplants of both artificial and harvested donor organs. Wake Forest University stem-cell specialist Anthony Atala uses stem cells collected from the patient or from a well-matched donor at a stem-cell bank to grow organs. The possibility of suppressing immune reactions via an extra dose of mesenchymal stem cells derived from adult bone marrow or umbilical cord blood is discussed.
