Toddler with lab-made windpipe dies
CHICAGO- A 2-year-old, who had a windpipe made of her own stem-cells transplanted into her, has died. Hannah Warren was born without a windpipe and was the youngest patient in the world to have the experimental treatment. Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria says Hannah couldn't "overcome additional health issues that were identified as her care progressed." Hannah was born in Korea and came to Illinois for the surgery. The stem cells came from her bone marrow and were seeded in a lab into a plastic scaffold, which created a new windpipe. The transplant was in April.
