The stem cells were successfully transplanted into mice with intact immune systems where they formed many blood cell components.
The successful transplantation of the blood stem cells in mice with an intact immune system is a big deal. Previously, the mice immune systems had to be wiped out before transplantation to prevent rejection of the transplanted cells.
If this research can be replicated in human cells it could have huge implications for people with blood cancers like leukemia and for people with other blood-related disorders like sickle-cell anemia.
