Iran is to transplant the world's first artificial windpipe on human by early February, said the President of Beheshti Medical Sciences University Mohammad Reza Razzaghi on Tuesday.

The artificial windpipe is the first to use stem cells of the patient therefore it has no risk of rejection of the foreign tissue, he said.

Windpipe transplantation has not been done in any other country by now, he said and added, after Masih Daneshvari Hospital announced production of the windpipe, Spain claimed that it has managed to develop artificial windpipe but it was actually a bronchiole.
