"Immune Mouse that Fully Recapitulates Individual Human Immune System Developed" in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News

Scientists report on the development of a mouse model that recapitulates the immune system of a single adult human. In contrast with existing humanized mouse models with immune systems derived from transplanted fetal hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), the immune system of the model described by the Massachusetts General Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center team is derived from a relatively few adult human HSCs. These could effectively be taken from any human volunteer or patient.
