Researchers Step Closer to Custom-Building New Blood Vessels :  Researchers at Johns Hopkins have coaxed stem cells into forming networks of  new blood vessels  in the laboratory, then successfully transplanted them into mice. The stem cells are made by reprogramming ordinary cells, so the new technique could potentially be used to make  blood vessels  genetically matched to individual patients and unlikely to be rejected by their immune systems, the investigators say.
