A class of drugs that differs from other alkylating agents used clinically in that they are monofunctional and thus unable to cross-link cellular macromolecules. Among their common properties are a requirement for metabolic activation to intermediates with antitumor efficacy and the presence in their chemical structures of N-methyl groups, that after metabolism, can covalently modify cellular DNA. The precise mechanisms by which each of these drugs acts to kill tumor cells are not completely understood. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2026)

Intravenous administration of human umbilical cord blood reduces behavioral deficits after stroke in rats. (1/440)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Human umbilical cord blood cells (HUCBC) are rich in stem and progenitor cells. In this study we tested whether intravenously infused HUCBC enter brain, survive, differentiate, and improve neurological functional recovery after stroke in rats. In addition, we tested whether ischemic brain tissue extract selectively induces chemotaxis of HUCBC in vitro. METHODS: Adult male Wistar rats were subjected to transient (2-hour) middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). Experimental groups were as follows: group 1, MCAO alone (n=5); group 2, 3x10(6) HUCBC injected into tail vein at 24 hours after MCAO (n=6) (animals of groups 1 and 2 were killed at 14 days after MCAO); group 3, MCAO alone (n=5); group 4, MCAO injected with PBS at 1 day after stroke (n=8); and group 5, 3x10(6) HUCBC injected into tail vein at 7 days after MCAO (n=5). Rats of groups 3, 4, and 5 were killed at 35 days after MCAO. Behavioral tests (rotarod and Modified Neurological Severity Score [mNSS]) were performed. Immunohistochemical staining was used to identify cells derived from HUCBC. Chemotactic activity of ischemia brain tissue extracts toward HUCBC at different time points was evaluated in vitro. RESULTS: Treatment at 24 hours after MCAO with HUCBC significantly improved functional recovery, as evidenced by the rotarod test and mNSS (P<0.05). Treatment at 7 days after MCAO with HUCBC significantly improved function only on the mNSS (P<0.05). Some HUCBC were reactive for the astrocyte marker glial fibrillary acidic protein and the neuronal markers NeuN and microtubule-associated protein 2. In vitro, significant HUCBC migration activity was present at 24 hours after MCAO (P<0.01) compared with normal brain tissue. CONCLUSIONS: Intravenously administered HUCBC enter brain, survive, migrate, and improve functional recovery after stroke. HUCBC transplantation may provide a cell source to treat stroke.  (+info)

Listeriosis in recipients of allogeneic blood and marrow transplantation: thirteen year review of disease characteristics, treatment outcomes and a new association with human cytomegalovirus infection. (2/440)

Listeriosis is uncommon in recipients of allogeneic blood, marrow and organ transplantation. Six patients with systemic Listeria monocytogenes infection during 1985-1997 at Bone Marrow Transplantation Service, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center are described. In two male and four female patients, the median duration from transplantation to isolation of L. monocytogenes was 62.5 (range 29 to 821) days. Among five allogeneic marrow transplant recipients, four (80%) received HLA antigen matched, T cell-depleted grafts from three unrelated and a single related donor. One patient underwent mismatched-related marrow graft transplant. Cord stem cell transplantation was performed in a single patient. Two required therapy for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). The 13 year incidence of systemic Listeria infections was 0.47 percent. All six presented with fever (>39 degrees C), and L. monocytogenes bloodstream invasion. Mental status changes and meningioencephalitis were observed in two (33.3%). A concurrent primary opportunistic infection was present in five individuals (83.3%), and four (80%) were being treated for acute human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) viremia. Sixty-six percent responded to therapy and two died from unrelated, non-listeric causes. Systemic listeriosis was uncommon in our high-risk allogeneic blood and marrow transplantation population, and response to therapy with parenteral ampicillin and gentamicin was excellent. The association between primary HCMV reactivation and subsequent listeric infection emphasizes the significance of HCMV-related dysfunction in hosts' cellular immune responses, especially in the setting of allogeneic transplantation.  (+info)

Human herpesvirus-6 encephalitis after unrelated umbilical cord blood transplant in children. (3/440)

Three children developed human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6), variant B encephalitis after unrelated umbilical cord blood transplant, in a single center. They developed clinical manifestations of encephalitis around day 17 post transplant. Impairment of consciousness, incoherent speech, episodic focal pruritus, motor weakness, convulsions and severe hyponatremia were features at presentation. Radiological investigation of brain ranged from unremarkable to extensive white matter and meningeal lesions. Diagnosis was established by the presence of HHV-6 DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Retrospective analyses of plasma revealed the presence of viral DNAemia prior to the onset of disease in two subjects. Treatment with ganciclovir or foscarnet was given. Two subjects did not achieve engraftment and died of other transplant-related complications on day 38 and 56 post-transplant, respectively. One subject achieved disease-free survival for more than 1 year with a satisfactory neurological outcome. In conclusion, HHV-6 encephalitis is not uncommon among patients undergoing umbilical cord blood transplantation. It is worth conducting further studies on early diagnosis and optimal management of this potentially fatal disease.  (+info)

Successful treatment of relapsed blastic natural killer cell lymphoma with unrelated cord blood transplantation. (4/440)

The prognosis for blastic natural killer (NK) cell lymphoma is generally dismal. We report a patient who was successfully treated with unrelated cord blood transplantation (UCBT). A 15-year-old boy was diagnosed as having blastic NK cell lymphoma in the cervical lymph nodes. Autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation was performed on achieving a complete remission. However, the disease recurred in the bone marrow 6 months later. Chemotherapy induced a second remission and the patient received UCBT with a conditioning regimen consisting of total body irradiation, thiotepa and cyclophosphamide. Chronic GVHD of the lung occurred, but it was well controlled with steroids. At the time of writing, he remains in remission 18 months after UCBT with an excellent performance status. UCBT may be an option for patients with blastic NK cell lymphoma.  (+info)

Combination treatment of bullous pemphigoid with anti-CD20 and anti-CD25 antibodies in a patient with chronic graft-versus-host disease. (5/440)

In this case report we describe a novel treatment with two chimeric monoclonal antibodies (MoAb) targeting the autoimmune B cell clone responsible for bullous pemphigoid (BP) as a manifestation of steroid refractory chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) that developed after unrelated cord blood transplantation. Monitoring the BP-specific circulating antibodies and CD25-expressing activated T lymphocyte subset led us to combine anti-CD20 (Rituximab) mediated B cell ablation with anti-CD25 (Daclizumab) therapy to block CD4(+) T cell help. Complete clinical and serologic response was achieved within 4 weeks of initiation of therapy allowing global immunosuppression to be dramatically reduced.  (+info)

A successful liver transplantation for refractory hepatic veno-occlusive disease originating from cord blood transplantation. (6/440)

An 11-month-old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) underwent umbilical cord blood transplantation (CBT) from an unrelated donor after a first complete remission. Despite the prophylactic use of low molecular weight heparin, prostaglandin E1 and ursodeoxycholic acid, hepatic veno-occlusive disease (VOD) occurred on the 29th day after CBT. Furthermore, neither defibrotide nor antithrombin-III improved the hepatic coma and coagulopathy due to the hepatic VOD. On the 42nd day after CBT, he underwent living related liver transplantation (LRLT) with a left lateral segment graft from his father. He received tacrolimus for the prevention of rejection and graft-vs.-host disease (GVHD) and also received aggressive antifungal and antiviral prophylaxis. Although he showed signs of acute rejection on postoperative days 5 and 10, the postoperative course was uneventful in general. At present, 17 months after LRLT, the patient shows stable liver function and no signs of either GVHD or a relapse of ALL. In conclusion, LRLT can be seen as a feasible option for the treatment of a hepatic VOD after CBT, though aggressive prophylaxis for infection and the anticipation of acute rejection are of importance.  (+info)

"Saviour siblings". (7/440)

The Victorian Infertility Treatment Authority has given permission to allow tissue typing in combination with preimplantation genetic diagnosis. This is a new application of IVF. Not only will it allow parents to select an embryo free from serious genetic disease it will allow them to simultaneously select for a match so that the umbilical cord blood of the resulting baby can provide stem cells to treat an existing sibling who has a disease.  (+info)

Induction of graft-versus-host disease and a graft-versus-leukemia effect using ubenimex in a patient with infantile leukemia relapsing after an unrelated cord blood transplant. (8/440)

A 20-month-old boy with infantile leukemia was treated with total body irradiation, etoposide, cyclophosphamide and unrelated cord blood transplantation with a one-antigen mismatch. He relapsed on day 100 and achieved remission after ubenimex administration, and also developed chronic graft-versus-host disease of the skin. He remained in remission for 22 months with repeated courses of ubenimex. Ubenimex may be an alternative to donor lymphocyte transfusion and may be useful for the treatment of a patient who has relapsed after cord blood transplantation.  (+info)

Banking and Transplantation of Unrelated Donor Umbilical Cord Blood: Status of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-Sponsored ...
This phase II trial is studying how well umbilical cord blood transplant from a donor works in treating patients with hematological cancer. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation (TBI) before a donor umbilical cord blood transplant helps stop the growth of cancer and abnormal cells and helps stop the patients immune system from rejecting the donors stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from an unrelated donor, that do not exactly match the patients blood, are infused into the patient they may help the patients bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the bodys normal cells (called graft-versus-host disease). Giving cyclosporine and mycophenolate mofetil before and after transplant may stop this from happening ...

Double-Unit Cord Blood Transplantation Not Superior to Single-Unit in Reducing Risk of Transplant Failure in Children and Young Adults - From the Blood Journals, News, Written in Blood - ASH Clinical News
We describe outcomes of a large series of predominantly small and young children with IMDs belonging to the lysosomal and peroxisomal disorders who underwent transplantation with UCBT at a single center after uniform cytoreduction and were followed for 1 to 11 years (median, 4.6 years). Important variables improving OS significantly were better performance status (P , .001), higher infused CFUs (P = .02), and matched ethnicity between the CBU and the recipient (P = .05). The cumulative incidence (87.1% by day 42) and speed (median, day 22) of neutrophil engraftment was higher and faster than previously reported in large cohort studies.27,28,42 Most patients (97%) achieved and sustained full donor chimerism (, 90%) and normalized enzyme levels where measurable. This high level of donor chimerism is better than those reported in the literature after unrelated bone marrow transplantation. Although detailed, disease-specific outcomes are not fully described in this report; all surviving children ...

Although stem cell-based therapies for the treatment of ischemic diseases show great promise, limited availability of biologically functional stem cells mired the application of stem cell-based therapies. Previously, we reported a PES-nanofiber based ex vivo stem cell expansion technology, which supports expansion of human umbilical cord blood (UCB)-derived CD133+/CD34+ progenitor cells ~225 fold. Herein, we show that using similar ...
Objective The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of umbilical cord blood stem cells (USCs) transplantation combined with routine supportive therapy (RST) for liver cirrhosis (LC). Materials and methods Clinical trials involved in this research were searched from Web of Science, PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Wanfang and CNKI database. Treatment effects, quality of life (QoL), adverse events and other outcome measures were extracted and evaluated. Results A total of 10 trials including 616 LC patients were involved in this study. Based on our analysis, the liver function of LC patients was significantly improved after USCs transplantation and RST combined therapy, indicated by decreased total bilirubin, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase levels and prothrombin time and increased serum albumin level and prothrombin activity. Compared to those treated by RST alone, patients treated by combined therapy
In a new peer-reviewed article published by the Journal of Translational Medicine, scientists from Beike Biotechnology,Chinas leading stem cell research and regenerative medicine company, and Medistem, Inc.,reported positive safety data in 114 patients who were treated by doctors at Nanshan Affiliated Hospital of Guangdong Medical College (Shenzhen Nanshan Hospital) in Shenzhen using Beikes proprietary cord blood stem cell transplantation protocol.
We studied the effect of the inter-unit HLA match on outcomes of double UCB transplantation for acute leukemia and did not find an association between inter-unit HLA-mismatch and outcomes. Specifically, there were no differences in hematopoietic recovery, acute GvHD or survival, demonstrating that inter-unit HLA-match is not relevant when selecting UCB units for double UCB transplantation for acute leukemia. The only unit characteristic associated with neutrophil recovery was cell dose. Transplantations of UCB units with a combined infused TNC 4×107/kg or more was associated with faster neutrophil recovery, but infused TNC was not associated with survival or non-relapse mortality. There were no differences in engraftment of the dominant and non-dominant units based on inter-unit HLA match or unit TNC within the first month after transplantation. Our observations are not in keeping with a single report of early engraftment of the non-dominant UCB unit when the cell dose of the dominant unit was ...
Our goal is to increase the number of immature umbilical cord blood stem cells (UCBSCs) for hematopoietic transplantation. Towards this goal, our lab adapted a culture technique to grow immature CD133+ UCBSCs (CD133+ cells). Although CD133+ cells proliferate rapidly in culture, a minority self-renew and remain CD133+, while a majority differentiate and become CD133-. Therefore, new strategies to identify and grow immature UCBSCs are important. Since little is known about signally mechanisms regulating self-renewal and differentiation of UCBSCs, we sought insight from embryonic stem cell (ESC) literature to guide our studies. \r\nTo identify a population of UCBSCs that grow without differentiating, we focused on Oct-4, a transcription factor essential for self-renewal in ESCs that we previously reported expression in UCBSCs. During our studies, new challenges in the field arose. Two isomers of Oct-4 were discovered, Oct-4A and Oct-4B 3, in which only Oct-4A conferred the ability of ESCs to ...

Our data indicate that UCBT is an excellent option for children with hereditary bone marrow failure syndromes when the donor is an HLA-matched sibling donor. Our results are in agreement with those of a previously published analysis which compared outcome of patients undergoing HLA-identical sibling UCBT with that of HLA-identical sibling bone marrow transplant recipients and showed similar overall survival in children with malignant and non-malignant diseases.16 Banks of related cord blood have been established; they are not, however, sufficiently developed despite the excellent results observed not only in marrow failure but also in other hereditary disorders such as hemoglobinopathies, metabolic disorders and congenital immune deficiencies.17,18 Another factor in favor of freezing cord blood cells from an HLA-identical sibling is the absence of risk for the donor.. An important observation is that the risk of graft failure after unrelated UCBT was high in this cohort of patients. The risk of ...
Promising results of umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCBT) from unrelated donors have been reported in patients with hematologic disorders.

Background: Measures were introduced in both the House and Senate to establish a National Cord Blood Stem Cell Bank Network.. Umbilical cord blood stem cells are obtained from the blood contained in the delivered placenta and umbilical cord, which are normally discarded after childbirth. Obtaining these stem cells presents no inherent moral concerns. Through freezing they can be preserved for many years.. According to findings presented in the House measure, cord blood stem cell transplants can be used for bone marrow reconstitution to treat malignancies such as leukemia and lymphoma, genetic disorders such as sickle cell anemia, and acquired diseases. The findings also claim that cord blood stem cells do not have to be matched as closely as bone marrow transplants. This means patients will be more likely to find a suitable unrelated cord blood donor than a matched bone marrow donor. Supporters say a network of at least 150,000 units of ethnically balanced cord blood donors would provide ...
Cell dose is a critical determinant of outcomes in unrelated cord blood (CB) transplantation. We investigated a strategy in which CB units should contain at least 2 × 107 total nucleated cells/kg of recipient weight, otherwise a second unit had to be added. We report the results of a study that was prematurely closed owing to toxicity. Patients with advanced hematologic malignancies without a human leukocyte antigen-matched sibling or unrelated donor were eligible. Conditioning regimen consisted of fludarabine and 12 Gy of total body irradiation (n=11), or melphalan (n=4), with antithymocyte globulin. Graft-versus-host disease prophylaxis was tacrolimus and methotrexate. Fifteen patients with acute leukemia (n=9), chronic myelogenous leukemia (n=2), multiple myeloma (n=2) and lymphoma (n=2) were treated; 60% had relapsed disease at transplantation. Three patients received double CB transplants. The 100-day and 1-year treatment-related mortality rates were 40 and 53%, respectively. Median time to

This clinical trial studies intra-osseous donor umbilical cord blood and mesenchymal stromal cell co-transplant in treating patients with hematologic malignancies. Giving low doses of chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a co-transplant of donor umbilical cord blood and mesenchymal stromal cells into the bone (intra-osseous) helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It may also stop the patients immune system from rejecting the donors stem cells. The donated stem cells may replace the patients immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect).

Front Pharmacol. 2017 Sep 8 Human Umbilical Cord Blood Cell Transplantation in Neuroregenerative Strategies. Galieva LR1, Mukhamedshina YO1,2, Arkhipova SS1, Rizvanov AA1. Author information Abstract At present there is no effective treatment of pathologies associated with the death of neurons and glial cells which take place as a result of physical trauma or ischemic lesions of the nervous system. Thus, researchers have high hopes for a treatment based on the use of stem cells (SC),
Diabetes mellitus (DM) instigates a cascade of events leading to vascular damage and poor recovery after ischemic stroke. Our previous studies have found that treatment of stroke with bone-marrow-stromal cells initiated at 24h after stroke improves functional recovery in non-DM rats, but not in DM rats. Effective therapy for stroke in the non-DM population may not necessarily transfer to the DM population, prompting the need to develop therapeutic approaches specifically designed to reduce neurological deficits after stroke in the DM population. In this study, we hypothesize that treatment of stroke with human umbilical cord blood cells (HUCBCs) promotes neurorestorative effect in DM rats.. Methods: Type one DM (T1DM) was induced with a single injection of streptozotocin (60 mg/kg, ip) to adult male Wistar rats. These rats were subjected to 2h MCAo and were randomized to intravenous injection via tail-vein with: 1) phosphate-buffered saline control; 2) HUCBCs (5x106) at 24 hours after MCAo. A ...
As most parents would like to bank their babies cord blood to help safeguard their families, it is often the cost of cord blood banking that is the one reason why they do not. Most cord blood banks have an upfront fee for collecting, processing and cryo-preserving the cord blood that runs between $1,000 and $2,000. This upfront fee often also includes the price of the kit provided to collect and safely transport the cord blood, the medical courier service used to expedite the kits safe shipment, the testing of the mothers blood for any infectious diseases, the testing of the babys blood for any contamination, and the cost of the first full year of storage. There is then often a yearly fee on the babys birthday for continued storage that runs around $100 to $200 a year ...
As noted, there are different ways to process cord blood, and although the type of processing method doesnt always enter the conversation on cord blood banking, it is a big part of the purity of any cord blood collection. Red blood cells can have a negative impact on a cord blood transfusion. In addition, there is a certain number of stem cells that need to be present in order for the cord blood to be effective in disease treatment. Each processing method has the ability to better reduce the number of RBCs and capture more stem cells. Some processing methods like AutoXpress and Sepax are automated to ensure a level of consistency across all collections. HES is preferred by some banks because it was the original processing method used by most banks and it has a proven track record. You can read more about the different cord blood processing methods here ...
Although cord blood is currently considered discarded human material, it should only be collected for banking with an institutional review board-approved protocol and with signed informed consent from a parent.42,43 Pertinent donor information communicated to the cord blood bank should be kept confidential by the cord blood bank and used only to report important medical information obtained during the cord blood collection, processing, and screening process that is relevant to the safety of the donor and family. If cord blood was collected from a newborn who subsequently developed a genetic, immunologic, or malignant neoplastic disorder, parents should notify the cord blood bank so that the unit is not used for transplantation. All cord blood units banked for potential use should be tested for infectious diseases, similar to those tested in a blood bank, and for hereditary hematologic diseases. The informed consent must contain information pertaining to what tests are to be performed on the cord ...
In the United States, approximately 15 percent of children suffer from low or high-frequency hearing loss.[i] The most common type of hearing loss, especially at high frequencies, is sensorineural. Acquired sensorineural hearing loss results from damage to hair cells in the inner ear (cochlea) and can be caused by illness, medication, noise exposure, birth injury, or head trauma. A childs ability to hear affects the development of language skills, and hearing impairments can lead to poor academic and social development.[ii]. The groundbreaking phase 1 study has a primary objective of determining the safety of using cord blood stem cells in a select pediatric patient population while also assessing whether this approach to treatment improves inner ear function, speech, and language development. Researchers will follow 10 children, ranging in age from 6 weeks to 6 years, who have been diagnosed with acquired hearing loss for less than 18 months and who have their own cord blood unit processed and ...
Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is an alternative hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) source that can ameliorate several diseases through transplantation. The purpose of this project is to analyze clinical studies comparing HSCs from a single cord blood unit (CBU) to HSCs from bone marrow, and to explore methods of increasing limited amounts of HSCs. It was found that UCB transplantation in adults is a viable method when a matched bone marrow transplant cannot be identified. Further clinical studies using two CBUs suggest better engraftment and lower risk of relapse. However, double cord blood transplantation has been faced with the challenge of single unit dominance in most studies. Ex vivo expansion of UCB HSCs is another promising method to overcome limited HSC counts.
It makes more sense to donate】. Base on the current development of biomedical science, AAP discourage saving umbilical cord blood as a life insurance, because there are no scientific data as of now to support the use of autologous cord blood transplant. Though theoretically possible, we are uncertain whether the theory will become practice at all, or when exactly will this technology be adopted. Most private banks prey on the parents fear of the unknown future, knowing how vulnerable the parents are to the emotional effects of the marketing of cord blood banking. They advertise the many possibility as a reality despite there being a lot of uncertainties still.. Contrarily, there are many successful cases of allogeneic cord blood transplantation. In such cases, the stem cells transplanted are from other individuals. Majority of these stem cell transplants have been done using samples from public banks because a perfect match is not required for cord blood transplantation. This also shows why ...

Although pharmacological methods for treating AD have been discovered, none significantly delay the progression of the disease. However, cell transplantation research using animals modeled with AD has indicated that human umbilical cord blood cells (HUCBCs) can ameliorate some cognitive deficits and reduce the effects of the amyloid-beta (Aβ) plaques, one of the physiological hallmarks of AD, comprised of peptides of 36-43 amino acids. However, the role that HUCBCs play in Aβ clearance has yet to be elucidated ...
There are several advantages of using umbilical cord blood stem cells over bone marrow stem cells for transplants (see Table 2). The first advantage is that umbilical cord blood is relatively easy to collect and process. Once considered a substance to be thrown away after a birth, now the cord blood can be easily saved. After it is saved and sent to a storage facility, the cord blood is quickly available for use within days to weeks after processing. In contrast, bone marrow stem cells can take much longer to find a match, collect the sample, and process. The process for bone marrow transplantation can take from weeks to months. The collection process for cord blood is not painful to either mother or child and can be done either prior to or after the delivery of the placenta (Gonzalez-Ryan, VanSyckle, Coyne, & Glover, 2000; Percer, 2009). Bone marrow transplants, on the other hand, require the donor to be hospitalized, anesthetized, and experience postcollection pain and discomfort. Thus, ...
OBJECTIVE We examined the therapeutic strategies for treating mild gastrointestinal (GI) graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) using oral beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) in 15 Japanese patients based on the donor source. The primary objective was to determine the efficacy and toxicity of oral BDP combined with/without low-dose prednisone (PSL). METHODS Oral BDP was administered with 1 mg/kg/d of PSL in patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation (BMT) or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT; n=11), and the dose of PSL was tapered off after 22 days. Oral BDP alone was administered in patients undergoing cord blood stem cell transplantation (CBSCT; n=4). The primary endpoint was the rate of treatment success on day 49, as measured according to the improvement or complete resolution of GI symptoms without additional treatment. The secondary endpoints included treatment-related toxicity according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria version 3.0, the rate of treatment
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a high risk factor for stroke and leads to more severe vascular and white-matter injury than stroke in non-DM. We tested the neurorestorative effects of delayed human umbilical cord blood cell (HUCBC) treatment of stroke in type-2 diabetes (T2DM). db/db-T2DM and db/+-non-DM mice were subjected to distal middle cerebral artery occlusion (dMCAo) and were treated 3 days after dMCAo with: (a) non-DM + Phosphate buffered saline (PBS); (b) T2DM + PBS; (c) T2DM + naïve-HUCBC; (d) T2DM + miR-126(-/-) HUCBC. Functional evaluation, vascular and white-matter changes, neuroinflammation, and miR-126 effects were measured in vivo and in vitro. T2DM mice exhibited significantly decreased serum and brain tissue miR-126 expression compared with non-DM mice. T2DM + HUCBC mice exhibited increased miR-126 expression, increased tight junction protein expression, axon/myelin, vascular density, and M2-macrophage polarization. However, decreased blood-brain barrier leakage, brain hemorrhage, and miR

Umbilical cord blood is taken from a new-borns umbilical cord and placenta immediately following birth - a painless, risk-free procedure. Cord blood contains a high concentration of stem cells, and recent studies have shown it provides unique advantages over traditional bone-marrow transplantation. The most significant advantage is that the donor cord blood stem cells do not have to match 100% to the recipients tissue, making finding a suitable match easier.. Cord blood can be used for the baby, the brothers and sisters and the mom and dad with a suitably matching tissue type, and in these instances cord blood stem cell transplants can in fact prove life-saving.. Much like cord blood, umbilical cord tissue can also be collected and stored in a stem cell bank. Cord tissue Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are younger and considered a superior resource when compared to bone marrow MSCs as they are younger and subsequently, they have greater differentiation potential and faster rates of ...

Since 1988, allogeneic cord blood transplantations have been used in the hematology and oncology area. Cord blood banks, either public or from non-profit corporations, opened in several countries. They organized themselves into a world-wide network permitting broad and quick graft availability all over the world. Cryopreservation modalities and biological safety were strongly defined according to laboratory good practices. More recently, in the United States, Canada and some European and Asian countries, commercial companies created for-profit cord blood banks. They offer families the possibility of privately storing the cord blood of their children. Then, if a child gets sick and needs a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, it is possible to use the cord blood for an autograft. These companies present this service, relatively expensive for the families, as a true biological insurance. Also, they capitalize on families hopes that scientific progress will increase cord blood autografts and ...

  • [ 1 ] More than half of autologous transplantations are performed for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma , and the vast majority of allogeneic transplants are performed for hematologic and lymphoid cancers. (
  • The number of human tissue transplants is increasing in both developed and developing countries, but global data on this form of transplantation are less complete. (
  • Access to transplantation is limited in low- and many medium-income countries, where the rate of transplants remains far below that of richer nations. (
  • BMT InfoNet is dedicated to providing transplant patients, survivors and their loved ones with emotional support and high quality, easy-to-understand information about bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cell and cord blood transplants. (
  • In an older study about 200 children with severe sickle cell disease were cured with bone marrow transplants after receiving high doses of chemotherapy. (
  • As more newborns are screened for potentially fatal diseases, the number of stem cell transplants has increased as well. (
  • Using cord blood for stem cell transplants instead of bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells is less invasive and expands the number of possible donors. (
  • Thirty times more publicly banked cord blood units are used for transplants compared to privately banked cord blood. (
  • Stem cell transplants are a potential cure for many advanced blood cancers because they replace a patient's damaged immune system with a healthy one from a donor with a compatible tissue type. (
  • Cord blood transplants , which use stem cells from a newborn's umbilical cord, are a lifesaving option for patients who cannot find a suitable match among family members or from bone marrow registries. (
  • Cord blood transplants have both advantages and disadvantages for patients. (
  • Studies have shown that, when looking at the 6 most important HLA types, cord blood transplants with only 4 of 6 HLA match are just as successful as bone marrow transplants that are 6 of 6 matched, in terms of long-term patient survival. (
  • But the biggest disadvantage of cord blood transplants is that it takes longer for the stem cells from cord blood donations to "engraft", so that the patient's immune system recovers. (
  • At the Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañon, in Madrid, our research on cord blood transplants is focused on ways to combine cord blood stem cells with other donated stem cells so that patients will receive a full cell dose and will have faster engraftment. (
  • Our group has developed a strategy called "dual" or "haplo-cord" transplants: patients receive stem cells from a single cord blood unit combined with stem cells from the bone marrow of a donor who is "haploidentical" to the patient. (
  • Haplo-cord transplants have been shown to reduce the patient's engraftment time, because the haploidentical donor cells engraft faster than the cord blood cells. (
  • Our group conducted the first clinical trial to compare outcomes of haplo-cord transplants versus MUD bone marrow transplants, for patients diagnosed with high-risk leukemias. (
  • In this study, 25 patients received traditional MUD bone marrow transplants and 20 patients received haplo-cord transplants. (
  • The key result of the study was that outcome measures were comparable between the two groups of patients: haplo-cord transplants are just as good as traditional MUD bone marrow transplants for long-term survival. (
  • Stem cell transplants using bone marrow or blood plus chemotherapy can help. (
  • PBSCs are easier to collect and have more cells that help transplants. (
  • Autologous transplants are used less frequently than allogeneic transplants for AML patients mainly because of the lack of a graft-versus-leukemia effect and the risk of returning some leukemia cells back to the patient. (
  • Enacting this bill will also reaffirm the commitment that Congress made three decades ago to help patients with blood cancers and other life-threatening diseases by increasing access to life-saving transplants. (
  • Umbilical cord banking allows you to collect and save your baby's cord blood for potential later use in medical therapies, including stem cell transplants and clinical trials of new, exciting stem cell therapies. (
  • The ability to use partially matched cord blood for transplants increases a patient's chances of being matched with a suitable donor. (
  • Transplants using stored umbilical cord blood are a standard of care for many life-threatening diseases, and are being studied as potential treatments for many more. (
  • Since then, up to 80 different diseases have been treated with cord blood transplants. (
  • This study will assess the safety and effectiveness of certain cord blood transplants. (
  • The study will help researchers learn the best methods for collecting, storing, and using cord blood in transplants. (
  • These cord blood units, as well as other units in the inventories of participating cord blood banks, are made available to physicians and patients for blood stem cell transplants through the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program. (
  • There are over 80 diseases for which stem cells transplants are considered a standard treatment option. (
  • Pretransplantation consolidation chemotherapy decreases leukemia relapse after autologous blood and bone marrow transplants for acute myelogenous leukemia in first remission. (
  • Transplants of cord blood stem cells can cure over 80 diseases. (
  • Most of the diseases treated by stem cell transplants are rare among children. (
  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) involves the intravenous infusion of hematopoietic stem cells in order to reestablish blood cell production in patients whose bone marrow or immune system is damaged or defective. (
  • Cells for HSCT may be obtained from the patient himself or herself (autologous transplant) or from another person, such as a sibling or unrelated donor (allogeneic transplant) or an identical twin (syngeneic transplant). (
  • The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), founded in 1986, and the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA), founded in 1988, were established to (1) locate and secure appropriate unrelated-donor HSCT sources for patients by promoting volunteer donation of bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells in the community and (2) promote ethical practices of sharing stem cell sources by need, rather than by geographic location of the donor. (
  • This, along with the development of unrelated cord blood transplantation and familial haploidentical transplantation methods, have improved the likelihood of finding an appropriate HSCT source in a timely manner. (
  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) remains the only curative treatment in patients with higher risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), but the choice of the optimal alternative stem cell source is still a subject of debate in patients lacking an HLA-matched sibling donor. (
  • Advances in transfusion and iron chelation improve survival but haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is still the only curative treatment. (
  • Due to repeated blood transfusion and iron overload, thalassaemia patients undergoing HSCT are at a higher risk of graft rejection and transplant-related mortality. (
  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the transplantation of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells, from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood. (
  • For many patients who are at high risk for transplant-related mortality with myeloablative allogeneic HSCT, reduced-intensity conditioning allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant has proven effective. (
  • This study investigates whether donor KIR genotype influences reactivation of cytomegalovirus (CMV) after T-cell replete, matched sibling donor reduced-intensity conditioning allogeneic HSCT. (
  • 1] There may be a higher risk of infection with cord blood compared with traditional HSCT, as cord blood is slower in generating immune cells. (
  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) affects serious risks for the patient, including death. (
  • HSCT make it an aggressive process, causing consists of painless intravenous infusion of healthy toxicity and can generate significant complications hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) extracted from bone and several side effects adding feelings of worry, marrow (BM), peripheral blood (PB) and placental anguish, anxiety, among others (KUBA et al. (
  • Also, drastic changes in daily living habits, qualified and responsible for the implementation of changes in body image, long duration of treatment, HSCT since 2004, agreed to the Brazilian Unified periods of hospitalization and protective isolation, Health System, which meets the needs of the feeling of loss of control, fear of death and lack of patients with an indication for transplantation. (
  • AB-110 is composed of human umbilical cord blood derived hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells co cultured and expanded with Angiocrine's proprietary E-CEL UVEC cells. (
  • To optimize the process, we systematically explored the many variables in the system and ultimately succeeded in demonstrating that we could reproducibly expand umbiliical cord stem and progenitor cells over 300-fold in twelve days. (
  • We then succeeded in demonstrating that cells derived from the two processes are indistinguishable in their cellular composition, their content of stem and progenitor cells as measured in colony forming assays, and their ability to restore the immune system of irradiated mice. (
  • In addition, we systematically explored the many variables in the co-culture process and ultimately succeeded in demonstrating that we could reproducibly expand umbilical cord stem and progenitor cells over hundred fold, to numbers similar to what is expected of cell numbers from adult sources, and within two weeks or less, which is regarded by transplant physicians as a time frame that would be compatible with clinical practice. (
  • We then succeeded in demonstrating that cells derived from the two processes are indistinguishable in their cellular composition, their content of stem and progenitor cells as measured by flow cytometry and colony forming assays. (
  • Globally, it is estimated that 120 000 corneal transplantations and 18 000 transplantations of allogeneic haematopoietic progenitor cells took place in the year 2000. (
  • Quite how these stem cells promote regeneration will require further assessment, but as we now have the means to amplify and assess large number of functional progenitor cells in vitro, this strategy could develop into an important approach to battle diabetes. (
  • Expanded Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells Reselected for High Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Activity Demonstrate Islet Regenerative Functions. (
  • Combinatorial human progenitor cell transplantation optimizes islet regeneration through secretion of paracrine factors. (
  • The transplantation of stem cells, such as embryonic stem cells (ESCs), induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), or subsequently generated stem/progenitor cells, is predicted to be a promising treatment for SCI. (
  • Establishing a platform for immunotherapy: clinical outcome and study of immune reconstitution after high-dose chemotherapy with progenitor cell support in breast cancer patients. (
  • Dr Ricordi said: "The umbilical cord contains progenitor stem cells, or mesenchymal stem cells, that can be expanded and provide therapeutic doses for over 10,000 patients from a single umbilical cord. (
  • The theory of tissue regeneration is usually to utilize the body's own biologic resources and its reparative capability by using a target-specific biomaterial system to sponsor host stem or tissue-specific progenitor cells to the site of injury. (
  • When scaffolds incorporated with bioactive molecules are implanted tissue regeneration, particularly focusing on the strategies that enhance host stem or progenitor cells into the target-specific scaffolds, and present some of the applications of tissue regeneration. (
  • Basic considerations for tissue regeneration The success of tissue regeneration relies on effective recruitment of host stem or progenitor cells into the implanted biomaterial scaffolds and induction of the infiltrating cells into tissue-specific cell lineages for functional tissue regeneration. (
  • The bone marrow harbors multiple unique stem/progenitor cells that include hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). (
  • The purpose is to deliver chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and/or radiation to eliminate malignancy, prevent rejection of new stem cells, and create space for the new cells. (
  • Children who suffer from cancer or other blood diseases must undergo chemotherapy or radiation to treat their condition, but these treatments also harm healthy cells within the body, including the cells in the bone marrow, where red blood cells are formed. (
  • Outcomes Are Similar Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant for Newly Diagnosed Patients Who Received Venetoclax + Azacitidine Versus Intensive Chemotherapy. (
  • For example, deep sequencing of paired diagnosis and relapse acute myeloid leukaemia samples has provided direct evidence that relapse in some cases is generated from minor genetic subclones present at diagnosis that survive chemotherapy, suggesting that resistant cells are generated by evolutionary processes before treatment and are selected by therapy. (
  • The stem cell transplant typically takes place after chemotherapy, radiation or both to destroy the cells causing disease. (
  • To see how safely and effectively SAA and MD are treated using peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cells from a family member plus chemotherapy. (
  • For some patients who are in remission and can tolerate intensive chemotherapy, the doctor may recommend stem cell transplantation during the consolidation phase of chemotherapy. (
  • First the patient receives intensive chemotherapy, with or without radiation, to kill the remaining leukemic cells in the patient's body. (
  • After the chemotherapy, the patient receives an infusion of stem cells to replace the stem cells destroyed by the intensive therapy. (
  • This type of transplantation may be a treatment option for older patients who cannot tolerate the high doses of chemotherapy used in preparation for a standard allogeneic stem cell transplant. (
  • The cells are returned to the patient's body after receiving intensive chemotherapy. (
  • Chemotherapy employs anti-cancer medications to prevent and stop the development of cancer cells within the body. (
  • Persons undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which destroy the patient s bone marrow, can have their stem cells harvested for later transfusion. (
  • Cord blood from a child itself, or from a sibling has the amazing potential to restore the bone marrow, blood and immune cell systems following chemotherapy. (
  • If sibling cord blood is used, then the donor cells may also have the ability to attack cancer cells remaining in a patient or replace a bone marrow deficiency with healthy cells after chemotherapy. (
  • HLA-mismatched unrelated donor or cord blood seem to give similar inferior results except for neutrophil engraftment, which is delayed after UCB. (
  • This ability to reduce blood sugar levels correlated to ALDHhi cell engraftment in the mouse bone marrow, but not engraftment into the mouse pancreas. (
  • Can we engineer reselected cells to improve migration and engraftment after transplantation? (
  • However, this engraftment is transient, and only acts as a bridge - eventually the stem cells from the cord blood donor take over, replace the haploidentical donor cells, and engraft permanently. (
  • The median time for bone marrow engraftment was similar in the two groups, 16 days for MUD and 14 days for halo-cord. (
  • However, engraftment patterns have varied substantially and in some patients, cord engraftment was profoundly delayed or never occurred. (
  • We used two xenograft models of human mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) transplantation and studied how the presence of ECFCs modulates MSC engraftment and regenerative capacity in vivo. (
  • Host T cells affect donor T cell engraftment and graft-versus-host disease after reduced-intensity hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. (
  • Gamida Cell previously reported in May 2020 that the study achieved its primary endpoint , showing that omidubicel demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in time to neutrophil engraftment, a measure of how quickly the stem cells a patient receives in a transplant are established and begin to make healthy new cells, and a key milestone in a patient's recovery from a bone marrow transplant.

(
  • Dozens of researchers at Fred Hutch are working to improve the safety of transplantation procedures, which come with potentially life-threatening risks, including infection and graft-vs.-host disease, whereby the newly transplanted donor immune system attacks the recipient's healthy cells. (
  • A second study result which is also very important was that the haplo-cord patient group had significantly less graft versus host disease, only 5% in the haplo-cord group versus 40% in the MUD group. (
  • The transplanted immune cells (the graft) perceive the leukemia cells in the body as foreign and destroy them. (
  • A serious risk of allogeneic and reduced-intensity allogenic stem cell transplantation is graft versus host disease (GVHD) , which develops if the donor's immune cells attack your normal tissue. (
  • This is because patients receive their own stem cells, so the risk of some complications, such as graft-versus-host disease, is lower. (
  • 3,5 Two of the most frequent complications of stem cell transplantation are transplant rejection and graft versus host disease, or GvHD. (
