Bone marrow tranplant

Hans van Goudoever
Paediatric tertiary care is highly centralized in the Netherlands. The country is small (16 million inhabitants, overall unemployment rates were approximately 7 % in 2014, while young adult (< 25 years) unemployment rates were 12 %) with the majority of the population living in Amsterdam and Rotterdam and their neighbouring cities/villages. There are 90 hospitals taking care for children in the Netherlands. Specific types of highly specialized care, such as transplantation, are provided in a maximum of three centres (kidney transplants in 3, bone marrow tranplants in 2, liver transplants in only one center), while neonatal intensive care is offered in 10 hospitals...

Deguelin is a nature-derived chemopreventive drug. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are bone-marrow (BM)-derived key components to induce new blood vessels in early tumorigenesis and metastasis. Here we determined whether deguelin inhibits EPC function in vitro and in vivo at doses not affecting cancer cell apoptosis. Deguelin significantly reduced the number of EPC colony forming units of BM-derived c-kit+/sca-1+ mononuclear cells (MNCs), proliferation, migration, and adhesion to endothelial cell monolayers, and suppressed incorporation of EPC into tube-like vessel networks when co-cultured with endothelial cells...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the survival of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSC) and periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSC) in BMMSC/PDLSC cell sheets which transplanted ectopically into subcutaneous dorsum of nude mice. METHODS: The canine BMMSC and PDLSC from primary culture were tranfected with lentiviral vectors carrying green fluorescent protein (GFP) gene (Lentivirus-GFP) or red fluorescent protein (RFP) gene (Lentivirus-RFP) respectively. The immunophenotypes of GFP-labeled BMMSC and RFP-labeled PDLSC were identified by flow cytometry...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects on forming of hypertrophic scar after BMSCs infected with adenovirus carrying TGF-beta3c2s2 were transplanted into the wound of animal scar model. METHODS: The third passage of rabbit's BMSCs were infected with 150 mutiple infection, and were cultured 24 hours. The concentration of the BMSCs infected with recombinant adenovirus containing the TGF-beta3c2s2 gene was 1 x 10(5) cell/mL. The purified and evaporated recombinant adenovirus grains containing the TGF-beta3c2s2 gene were diluted by DMEM/F12 (without FBS) to 1 x 10(8) pfu/mL...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect on bone marrow stem cell transplantition (BMST) combinated with Bushen fang therapy in mdx mice. METHODS: Cultured the bone marrow cells of C56BL/6 in vitro and tranplante these cells to mdx mice after irradiation. Bushen fang was used to cure the mdx mice after BMST. The survivel rate, symptom of Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) and motor function of model mice following irradiation and transplantation were observed 4 or 8 months after BMST, prepared the freeze-splice of muscles of each group, and made HE staining...

Iran is a tropical country with a land area of 1,648,000 square kilometers and a population of 68,100,000. Iran has a recorded history that dates back 2553 years. Its earliest medical school was Pasargad. Jondi Chapour University was founded 1753 years ago during the Sassanid dynasty as a center for higher education in medicine, philosophy, and pharmacology. Indeed, the idea of xenotransplantation dates back to days of Achaemenidae (Achaemenian dynasty), as evidenced by engravings of many mythologic chimeras still present in Persepolis...

PURPOSE: Acute graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) is a constant and severe complication after allogeneic stem cell transplantation regularly involving skin, liver, gut, and lungs. The cytokine interleukin-18 (IL-18) has been shown to increase in patients who develop acute GvHD after bone marrow tranplantation (BMT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Here, we measured IL-18 serum levels after peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) at several characteristic time points in 24 patients (median age 46 years)...

The evolution of clinical transplantation has hinged on 2 seminal turning points. The first was the demonstration in 1953 by Billingham, Brent, and Medawar that chimerism-associated tolerance could be induced deliberately in neonatal mice by infusing adult donor hematolymphopoietic cells. This discovery escalated in a straight line over the next 15 years to successful bone marrow transplantation in humans. The second turning point was the demonstration that organ allografts could self-induce tolerance under an umbrella of immunosuppression, or in some species without immunosuppression...

The concentration of factor VIII and partial thromboplastin times became normal and have remained normal for 140 days after orthotopic tranplantation of a normal liver to a hemophilic dog. Transplantation of a normal spleen into a hemophilic recipient did not result in a significant increase in factor VIII although the splenic graft was viable for at least 47 days. Transplantation of normal marrow to a lethally irradiated hemophilic dog did not result in an increase in factor VIII during 34 days of observation...

The low energy and short range of 55-Fe Auger electrons were utilized in mice to deliver lethal intracellular radiation to iron-incorporating erythropoietic precursors with minimal radiation damage to other bone marrow cells. The ensuing intramedullary, selective erythropoietic death was demonstrated by absolute and differential bone marrow cell counts and by decreased blood uptake of 59-Fe. The decreased number of colony-forming units in spleen colony assay and the decreased ability of tranplanted bone marrow to protect fatally irradiated mice shows that the bone marrow was partially depleted of pluripotent stem cells...

Isografts of cortical bone were tranplanted subcutaneously in the rat and the rate of osteogenesis 12 to 14 days later was assessed by measurement of 85Sr uptake and by histology. Some grafts were implanted complete whereas others had had one or more of their cellular components (viz. periosteum, endosteum, osteocytes, marrow) removed by mechanical or enzymatic pretreatment. From an analysis of the differences in osteogenesis between grafts devoid of different combinations of cellular components, the contribution of each component to osteogenesis was determined...
