That article converted 117.4 million units (in its source) to 117.4 billion units (in the article) of blood donations per year - a number so absurd that every little bit of proofreading should have caught it.
There are many caveats with this approach. Only tested on rabbits so far, with a small sample size (10 rabbits per group). It also doesn't contain normal hemoglobin, but something they created in the lab. How that affects animals in the long run is unclear.
