  • patient's
  • There are various potential side effects associated with transplantation, these will largely depend on how well matched the donor's cells are to the patient's cells. (cancerindex.org)
  • Our patients see physicians who are experts not only in transplantation but also in the patient's specific cancer or blood disease, such as leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. (uchospitals.edu)
  • However, the dosing is still high enough that the ultimate result is the destruction of both the patient's bone marrow (allowing donor marrow to engraft) and any residual cancer cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Doctors simply cut a small hole in the patient's neck/back and inject a hydrogel polymer into the bone gap much the same way they would a titanium rod. (wikipedia.org)
  • grafts
  • We previously reported early results of a clinical trial using ex vivo induction of alloanergy in donor T cells within bone marrow (BM) grafts via CTLA4-Ig-mediated CSB. (bloodjournal.org)
  • immunotherapy
  • As one of Hadassah University's senior scientists, Prof. Or continues to conduct research on various clinical topics, including the prevention of liver complications following bone marrow transplantation and immunotherapy using donor derived lymphocytes (immune cells) for the eradication of malignant diseases that would otherwise prove fatal.

  • citation needed
  • citation needed] Possible mechanisms of recovery include: Generation of heart muscle cells Stimulation of growth of new blood vessels to repopulate damaged heart tissue Secretion of growth factors Assistance via some other mechanism It may be possible to have adult bone-marrow cells differentiate into heart muscle cells.

  • Registries
  • Provides both EBMT members and other physicians involved in bone marrow transplant with information on related meetings, registries and data management, transplant guidelines, accreditation and corporate sponsorship. (dmoztools.net)
  • diseases
  • For some types of blood diseases, transplantation is the standard of care. (uchospitals.edu)
  • 1 Congenital disorders account for approximately one third of cases of bone marrow failure in childhood and include many different genetic diseases, such as Fanconi anemia, dyskeratosis congenita (DC), 2 Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA) 3 and others. (haematologica.org)
  • scientists
  • This groundbreaking work influenced many scientists investigating bone marrow transplant for humans, including the winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. (uchospitals.edu)
  • tissue
  • In the late 1940s, University of Chicago researcher Dr. Leon Jacobson discovered that he could save a mouse, whose bone marrow and spleen had been destroyed with radiation, by transplanting healthy spleen tissue from another mouse. (uchospitals.edu)
  • Doctors can cut out the infected bone tissue (or flat-out replace it as they did in the Sydney case) but that leaves large gaps in the spine. (wikipedia.org)
  • From there, surrounding bone tissue grows into and through the polymer, reinforcing and cementing it in place. (wikipedia.org)
