British researchers succeeded in developing personalized stem cells from a patient's own blood. The method involved identifying a type of repair cell in the blood and then converting these cells into stem cells. In this study, published in the journal Stem Cells: Translational Medicine, the cells were then used to grow blood vessels. Researchers said the next step is to develop the cells into clinical-grade cells.
