Molecular ‘Marker’ on Stem Cells Aids Research, Perhaps Therapis
...ow; the vast majority of bone marrow is made up of hematopoietic
stem cells, which give rise to blood and immune cells. Dr. Rita Perlingeiro, assistant professor in the Center for Developmental Biology and of molecular biology, said detecting SSEA-4 will aid in singling out the mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, f...
Stem cell transplant recipients face significant risk of second cancer
... study has highlighted that patients who receive a hematopoietic
stem cell transplant (HSCT), face a considerable risk of developing a second cancer, especially// if they are older during the time of the transplant or have received stem cells from a female donor. A peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer S...

stem cell transplantation (HaploHSCT) for children, which was previously pioneered by St. Jude investigators. Before this technique, only matched transplants from a genetic twin or from a matched, unrelated donor could be used, since unmatched donati...
Gene May Regulate Cellular Aging
...Dr. David Scadden, studied the role of p16INK4a in hematopoietic
stem cells, which proliferate continuously during the adult lifespan and produce massive amounts of new blood cells on an hourly basis. Their results suggest that p16INK4a is the molecular basis for an old-age 'signal' previously observed in blood st...
