A UCSF study holds clues to why an emerging clinical trials option for heart attack patients has not been as successful as anticipated.  Treatment of human hearts with bone marrow cells has led to limited to no success in improving their heart function even though a similar method has been much more effective in rodents. Scientists didn´t have a plausible research-based answer until now, according to the UCSF researchers. In a paper published this month in the scientific journal...

Stem cell technology from Tel Aviv University research begins clinical trial for Lou Gehrig's disease The ability to produce neuroprotectors, proteins that protect the human brain against neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and ALS, is the holy grail of brain research. A technology developed at Tel Aviv University does just that, and it's now out of the lab and in hospitals to begin clinical trials with patients suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as...

Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson clinical trial found improved overall survival in blood cancer patients who received two-step, half-match bone marrow transplant procedure Half-matched bone marrow or stem cell transplants for blood cancer patients have typically been associated with disappointing clinical outcomes. However, a clinical trial conducted at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson testing its unique, two-step half-match procedure has produced some promising results: the...

McMaster researchers have found one more reason to exercise: working out triggers influential stem cells to become bone instead of fat, improving overall health by boosting the body's capacity to make blood. The body's mesenchymal stem cells are most likely to become fat or bone, depending on which path they follow. Using treadmill-conditioned mice, a team led by the Department of Kinesiology's Gianni Parise has shown that aerobic exercise triggers those cells to become bone more often...

Bone marrow transplantation with genetically modified cells may prolong the period of cancer-free survival, suggests a study led by Dr. Vivek Rangnekar, associate director of translational research for the Markey Cancer Center at the University of Kentucky. Bone marrow, a spongy tissue inside bones, contains stem cells that produce blood cells, including leukocytes, erythrocytes and platelets. In the cover story of the July issue of Cancer Biology & Therapy, Rangnekar and his team...

According to a study published in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), researchers have reported that administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), a drug that releases stem cells from the bone marrow into the blood, is unlikely to put healthy stem cell donors at risk for later development of abnormalities involving loss or gains of chromosomes that have been linked to hematologic disorders such as myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid...

Tel Aviv University researcher uses lasers to stimulate stem cells and reduce heart scarring After a heart attack or stroke, heart scarring can lead to dangerously paper-thin heart walls and a decreased ability to pump blood through the body. Although the heart is unable to completely heal itself, a new treatment developed at Tel Aviv University uses laser-treated bone marrow stem cells to help restore heart function and health. Combining the therapeutic benefits of low-level lasers "”...

Bone Marrow Transplantation (journal)
2012-06-04 20:00:41

Bone Marrow Transplantation is a peer-reviewed medical journal published monthly by Nature Publishing Group. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is J.M. Goldman (UK). The journal publishes high quality, original research that addresses all aspects of basic biology and clinical use of haemopoietic stem cell transplantation in humans. The broad scope of the journal thus encompasses topics such as stem cell biology, kinetics and cytokine control, transplantation immunology, HLA and matching...
