  • In this Cancer.net video, Sonali M. Smith, MD , director of the lymphoma program , provides an introduction to bone marrow/stem cell transplantation. (uchospitals.edu)
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and prolymphocytic leukemia, in complete or partial remission, Mantle cell lymphoma, relapsed Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. (knowcancer.com)
  • In the last few years he has been responsible for the Australasian Leukaemia and Lymphoma Group's clinical trial program in acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL), and has combined this with an active laboratory program in the molecular analysis of APL cells. (edu.au)
  • The lack of the normal distribution of these B cells is one basis for demonstrating clonality, the key element for establishing a diagnosis of any B cell malignancy (B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • Neuroblastoma cancer cells can spread (metastasize) quickly to other areas of the body (i.e., lymph nodes, liver, lungs, bones, central nervous system, and bone marrow). (stlouischildrens.org)
  • Peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT), also called "Peripheral stem cell support", is a method of replacing blood-forming stem cells destroyed, for example, by cancer treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • born January 18, 1944) is the Enid A. Haupt Chair of Cell Biology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. (wikipedia.org)
  • He was the first (1970) to prove the existence of cancer stem cells in a study of leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most recently Dr Moore has been studying the cancer stem cell in lung cancer and ovarian cancer and has developed some novel methods for growing human cancer stem cells in vitro allowing extensive molecular analysis and identification of targets for therapy designed to eliminate this rare cell population that is responsible for aggressive tumor growth and relapse. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes too many lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell). (wikipedia.org)
  • Expression of this receptor in cancer cells has been linked to metastasis to tissues containing a high concentration of CXCL12, such as lungs, liver and bone marrow. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, in breast cancer where SDF1/CXCL12 is also expressed by the cancer cells themselves along with CXCR4, CXCL12 expression is positively correlated with disease free (metastasis free) survival. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mutations of CD117 have also been implicated in leukemia, a cancer of hematopoietic progenitors, melanoma, mast cell disease, and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). (wikipedia.org)
  • Examples of surgical procedures for cancer include mastectomy for breast cancer, prostatectomy for prostate cancer, and lung cancer surgery for non-small cell lung cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • A single cancer cell is invisible to the naked eye but can regrow into a new tumor, a process called recurrence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy, X-ray therapy, or irradiation) is the use of ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although radiation damages both cancer cells and normal cells, most normal cells can recover from the effects of radiation and function properly. (wikipedia.org)
  • graft
  • Moreover, the introduction of an HIV resistance vector into a portion of the allogeneic graft provides a unique opportunity to test the in vivo efficacy of introducing resistance to HIV through the self renewing stem cell. (knowcancer.com)
  • Another stem-cell therapy called Prochymal, was conditionally approved in Canada in 2012 for the management of acute graft-vs-host disease in children who are unresponsive to steroids. (wikipedia.org)
  • therapy
  • Changes in functional and morphometric parameters of LV performance after cell therapy appear to be in the range of effects observed with reperfusion therapy, pharmacotherapeutic interventions influencing the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone pathway, and beta-blockers after AMI. (onlinejacc.org)
  • In the following discussion, the effects of intracoronary transplantation of bone marrow- and blood-derived stem cells in AMI on functional and morphometric LV parameters are put into the context of established therapy, such as reperfusion therapy and adjunctive pharmacotherapy. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Atypical presentation of therapy-related acute promyelocytic leukaemia with marrow fibrosis. (edu.au)
  • Stem-cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • this is the only form of stem-cell therapy that is widely practiced. (wikipedia.org)
  • Their atomic investigation of mutant KIT receptor which emphasized on the EAL region provided a better insight into the understanding of the sunitinib resistance mechanism of the KIT receptor and could help to discover new therapeutics for KIT-based resistant tumor cells in GIST therapy.
