Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

A 30-year-old Pak­istani man suc­cess­fully re­ceived trans­plan­ta­tion of cord blood hematopoi­etic stem cells pro­vided by China Stem Cell Group at Shang­hai Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal’s South­ern Di­vi­sion in Songjiang district Wed­nes­day, thep­a­per.cn re­ported. He was the first for­eigner to use Chi­nese cord blood hematopoi­etic stem cells.

Since he was di­ag­nosed with MDS, a blood dis­ease, in 2010, the man has been re­ly­ing on var­i­ous blood trans­fu­sions to live. A trans­fu­sion de­pen­dency and fur­ther de­te­ri­o­ra­tion of his con­di­tion urged him to seek out med­i­cal treat­ment over­seas.

Pak­istan is one of the coun­tries and re­gions most ben­e­fit­ing from China’s Belt and Road ini­tia­tive. The im­ple­men­ta­tion of China-Pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor pro­vides con­ve­nience for the de­vel­op­ment of trans­porta­tion, econ­omy and med­i­ca­tion in Pak­istan. Thus, the pa­tient chose to come to China for med­i­cal treat­ment based on his good im­pres­sion of China and trust in Chi­nese med­i­cal treat­ment.
