Stem cell patient ACCIDENTALLY grows a NOSE on her back eight years after surgeons injected tissue

A woman has developed a nose-like growth eight years after a stem cell treatment to cure her paralysis failed.

At the Hospital de Egas Moniz in Lisbon, Portugal, the unnamed woman, a U.S. citizen, had tissue from her nose implanted in her spine.

Doctors hoped the cells would develop into neural cells and help repair the nerve damage to the woman's spine.

But the treatment failed.

However, last year, eight years after the stem cell operation, the woman, then 28, complained of increasing pain in the area.

Doctors discovered a three-centimetre-long growth, which was found to be mainly nasal tissue, as well as bits of bone and nerve branches that had not connected with the spinal nerves.

I'm glad they clarified that.

I wouldn't know what to think of a person who grew a nose on their back intentionally.

But after 8 years? What triggered the sudden growth? If they remove it will it come back? ...................

Obama walks into the Oval Office with a frog on his head.
Joe says “hey! where’d you get that!?”

Frog says, “well, it started out as a wart on my ass.”.

The body is a funny thing to start with, injecting foreign substances into it besides drugs and silicone, especially genetic related may take root in some folks, others , they successfully devour it thru their own immune system is my best guess.

It took awhile but something got mushmashed, too bad it didn’t help her, but eventually, the right combo may land and help her spinal condition.

Will it come back? My guess, no. But I’m not a doctor.

While absolutely true, if you actually read the article, you'd see that this woman had the stem cells taken from her own nose.

God will not be mocked, indeed, but He also apparently has a nose for humor....

Without even reading the article ... I'll guarantee fetal stem cells were used. She's lucky not to be riddled with what a doctor could only describe as "cancer". Autologous stem cells, or not at all, for me.

That’s actually the problem with fetal stem cells, they’re too undifferentiated. Adult stem cells exhibit more differentiation. Like you said, autologous stem cells would function best.

I'll accept that my knee-jerk was invalid ... in this instance. Having tracked a number of stem cell successes and failures, however, I maintain the fetal stem cell disaster stereotype exists for good reason.

Appears to be adult ,, no info in article but video notes that there are no immune response problems ... seems like they had substantial success on over half of their patients.
