  • progenitor
  • Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), as model stem cells, were cultured in the T-RNPs-anchoring hydrogel to test the immune-suppressing effect. (thno.org)
  • Caution is clearly required for non HSC/HPC stem/progenitor cell uses of CB, based on insufficient biological and preclinical information for MSC, EPC, and iPSC. (stembook.org)
  • antigens
  • Major-histocompatibility-complex class I alleles and antigens in hematopoietic-cell transplantation," New England Journal of Medicine , vol. 345, no. 25, pp. 1794-1800, 2001. (hindawi.com)
  • HLA-identical siblings or HLA-identical unrelated donors often have genetically different proteins (called minor histocompatibility antigens) that can be presented by Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules to the donor's T-cells, which see these antigens as foreign and so mount an immune response.

  • lymphocyte
  • Mesenchymal stem cells suppress lymphocyte proliferation in vitro and prolong skin graft survival in vivo. (springer.com)
  • SCID involves defective antibody response due to either direct involvement with B lymphocytes or through improper B lymphocyte activation due to non-functional T-helper cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • versus
  • The goal of this therapy is to induce a remission of the patient's cancer by a process called the graft-versus-tumor effect (GVT). (wikipedia.org)
  • organs
  • The continued storage of GAGs in cells can lead to organs being affected in important ways. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once suitable donor organs are present, the surgeon makes an incision starting above and finishing below the sternum, cutting all the way to the bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although such attempts produced no positive benefit, further research found in the mid twentieth century that human cells could be used to help prevent the human body rejecting transplanted organs, leading in time to successful bone marrow transplantation. (wikipedia.org)
