A major breakthrough in blood studies may make ensuring rare blood types get the blood they need without delay! Scientists have been on the hunt for a better way of producing blood in mass quantities, however, a key factor in making this a possibility was the ability to change blood types as needed.
In August of 2018, an article was put forward saying Canadians may have found a way to turn Type A and B blood into Type O! A major step forward!! A day later Global News confirmed this, stating it ‘could be a huge advance for blood donation if the technique was proven safe.’
Now less then a year later, A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of British Columbia has successfully converted a whole unit of blood from type A into type O! GO BC!!! Guess I’m not as needed 😉
