There is still a long way to go before the routine use of these new kind of red blood cells.
But cell engineering and biomaterials are thus giving birth to innovations every day that seem to be science fiction ...
Will the medicine of the future be a high-tech garage where the human body will repair itself like an automobile from a catalog of spare parts?
Research is progressing, but the human body is more than just a mechanism: it is a complex whole, each part of which is linked to the others.
Modifying a single element triggers a general alarm which mobilizes all
