A University of Michigan lab has created artificial bone marrow that can continuously make red and white blood cells in a test tube. Researchers said the substance could someday provide a continuous supply of blood for transfusions, the university said Tuesday in a news release. The findings are published online in the journal Biomaterials. Lead author Nicholas Kotov said the artificial bone marrow grows on a 3-D scaffold that mimics the tissues supporting bone marrow in the body.
