Stem cells have been looked upon as a possible miracle cure for many conditions. This is not so for one paralyzed woman. This woman was a subject of an experimental treatment that took stem cells from her nose and implanted them into her spine. However, there was one big crucial step that the clinic left out.
Instead of first growing the stem cells in a lab, they took her nasal lining and directly inserted it into her spine. Eight years later, this unfortunate shortcut resulted in a nose-like growth with mucus discharge growing from her back! These scientist had better go back to the drawing board because this “experimental” treatment just doesn’t pass the sniff test. Know More.
