UCL Stem Cell Death ‘Cover-Up’ as Two Young Women Die After Experimental Treatment
November 1, 2018
(iNews) – UCL researchers have been accused of covering up the deaths of two women who died during experimental treatment in a bid to obtain funding. Professors obtained millions of pounds to lead three multi-million pound trials that looked into trialling tissue-engineered trachea and larynx transplants, reported The Telegraph. Keziah Shorten, 20, and Shauna Davison, 15, died after they underwent surgery to be given stem cell-engineered larynxes. Ms Shorten was left fighting for her life in intensive care for six months after she underwent an operation to fix her failing windpipe in 2010.
