1 October 2020 (Tuesday) - More Work (?)

Here’s something to make you think. An article in “The Scientist” claims that “Researchers have partially mitigated the effects of an ischemic stroke in mice simply by replacing a small amount of their blood with that of a healthy donor. Days after receiving the transplant, mice had less tissue damage surrounding the clot and suffered fewer neurological side effects compared to mice that had not received a blood infusion.

I wonder if this works in humans? And if so, how long before we are doing it?
