Human stem cells aren't immune to the aging process, according to scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The researchers studied hematopoietic stem cells, which create the cells that comprise the blood and immune system. Understanding when and how these stem cells begin to falter as the years pass may explain why some diseases, such as acute myeloid leukemia, increase in prevalence with age, and also why elderly people tend to be more vulnerable to infections such as colds...

2-drug combination may alleviate radiation sickness in people A combination of two drugs may alleviate radiation sickness in people who have been exposed to high levels of radiation, even when the therapy is given a day after the exposure occurred, according to a study led by scientists from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children's Hospital Boston. Mouse studies of other potential therapies suggest they would be effective in humans only if administered within a few minutes or hours...

Controlling a stem cell transplant recipient´s immune response may be major key to successful bone regeneration A new study in Nature Medicine describes how different types of immune system T-cells alternately discourage and encourage stem cells to regrow bone and tissue, bringing into sharp focus the importance of the transplant recipient's immune system in stem cell regeneration. The study, conducted at the Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology at the Ostrow School of...

US drug regulators for the first time have approved a therapy using cells of human blood from the placenta and the umbilical cord to treat cancer or blood-forming disorders, reports ABC News. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Thursday officially licensed HEMACORD (Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells-Cord, HPC-C) for “use in unrelated donor hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation procedures“¦ in patients with disorders affecting the hematopoietic system that...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A new study shows older blood cancer patients should be able to receive stem cell transplants no matter what age group they are in— 60 to 64, 65 to 69 or 70 to 75. Patients in all three age groups had comparable survival rates, suggesting  age played a limited role in how patients tolerate the mini-transplant, a "kinder, gentler" form of allogeneic (donor cell) stem cell transplantation developed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. "Age is no longer...

Young environment rescues old stem cells for use in treating age-related diseases Old stem cells can be rejuvenated by being placed in a young microenvironment, research from The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio shows. This raises the possibility that patients´ own stem cells may one day be rescued and banked to treat their age-related diseases. Stem cells are immature cells that have the potential to convert into bone, muscle, blood vessels, nerve fibers, and...

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...
