Hela Cell Story
In 1951, an African-American woman named Henrietta Lacks went to Johns Hopkins Hospital to be treated for cervical cancer. Unknown to her, cells from her biopsy were made available to biological researchers.
Lacks died later that year, but her cell line — known as HeLa — lives on. A new book Written by Rebecca Skloot 《The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks》examines the extraordinary impact of HeLa Cell on science and the effects of that unchosen legacy on Lacks family. Here’s a look at a most eventful afterlife.
To commemorate Henrietta Lacks, an ordinary African American, who has made an indelible contribution to medical research and clinical trials for all of humanity, and her undead cell, HELA CELLS, has saved at least hundreds of millions of patients. The bio-smart bracelet of this legend story, which our team had dedicated to , is called HELA SMART BRACELET/WATCH, in order to commemorate an ordinary person, maybe her/his genetic and biological data could be, just like Hela Cell, created the next miracle.
Henrietta Lacks ，died in 1951 from cervical cancer，is the African American woman whose cancer cells, became the source of what we have known today as the HeLa cell line. Henrietta Lacks` cell , is the first immortalized cell line and one of the most important cell group in medical research.
A medical team, led by George Otto Gey, had tissue samples removed from Henrietta`s cancerous tumors (without permission) and eventually created the HeLa cell line, which has established invaluable importance in the cure for cancer.
