Latest Bone marrow Stories
Results from a study published in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology reveal a close relationship between pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)â€”exceedingly high blood pressure in the arteries carrying blood from the heart to the lungsâ€”and abnormalities of the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow (known as myeloid abnormalities).

The bone marrow stem cells responsible for generating new blood cells are less fixed and more flexible than previously thought.
By coaxing healthy and diseased human bone marrow to become embryonic-like stem cells, a team of Wisconsin scientists has laid the groundwork for observing the onset of the blood cancer leukemia in the laboratory dish.
For blood cancer patients at high risk of relapse, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), the transplantation of blood-forming stem cells, is one of best options for treatment and a potential cure.
In work that could jumpstart the promising field of cell therapy, in which cells are transplanted into the body to treat a variety of diseases and tissue defects, researchers at Brigham and Womenâ€™s Hospital (BWH) have engineered cells that could solve one of the key challenges associated with the procedure: control of the cells and their microenvironment following transplantation.
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...
