World-first transplant - Japanese man is first to receive 'reprogrammed' stem cells from another person
03 April 2017 Current Affairs: A Japanese man has become the first recipient of donated, reprogrammed stem cells as a treatment for macular degeneration

A Japanese man in his 60s became the first person to receive cells derived from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells that had been donated by another person.

Yamanaka is establishing an iPS cell bank, which depends on matching donors to recipients via three genes that code for human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) — proteins on the cell surface that are involved in triggering immune reactions.
