Spleen may be source of versatile stem cells

...ood, the spleen is turnedon to supplement the bone marrow in replenishing your blood supply. Wemay find that the spleen kicks in to help with many more biologicalemergencies. What has been considered a practically unnecessary organmay actually provide critical healing cells," says Faustman, anassociate prof...

...he laboratory, so they must be harvested from bone marrow by needle aspiration, a painful procedure, or coaxed into the blood and then collected. Both methods yield only a limited number of blood stem cells. For more than a decade, scientists have believed that blood stem cells are made only in the embryo ...

Circles Of DNA Might Help Predict Success Of Stem Cell Transplantation

...blood could help physicians predict whether a bone marrow stem cell transplant will successfully restore a population of infection-fighting cells called T lymphocytes in a child. This research, by investigators at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, is published in the journal Blood. This finding could ...

The very unexpected life and death of a leukemic cell

...is an incurable disease in which cells in the bone marrow grow and survive to the point where they become abnormal and malignant (leukemic). The progression of the disease is slow and there has been a lack of information regarding the rate of production of CLL cells, and the time-course of their death. For...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

...s from IRE1 knock-out embryos into mice whose bone marrow had been destroyed by radiation. He found that stem cells deficient in IRE1 could reconstitute all types of blood and immune cells in the transplanted mice, but their mature B lymphocytes were defective. Without IRE1, lymphocytes don't develop a B ce...

Protein That Promotes Survival Of Stem Cells Might Be Key To Poor Leukemia Prognosis

...ed anemia and had severely reduced numbers of bone marrow (BM) cells, such as HSCs and progenitor cells. This was strong evidence that Mcl-1 was needed to maintain these cell populations. The team also demonstrated that BM cells lacking Mcl-1 did not multiply when removed from mice and cultured in the labo...

Researchers pioneer new gene therapy technique using natural repair process

...ly shortened by systemic infection, and while bone marrow transplants can be used to treat the disease, they are not always successful. "SCID is ideal for this sort of therapy because you only need to correct the defect in a small number of immune cells to fix the problem," said Dr. Porteus, assistant prof...
