Research shows a promising new method to reduce graft-versus-host-disease after bone marrow transplantation
(PhysOrg.com) -- University of Michigan researchers have discovered a new method to prevent the immune-system attacks that often occur following bone marrow transplants.
Identification of a molecular communications pathway that influences the mobilization of hematopoietic (blood) stem cells could lead to targeted therapies for improving bone marrow transplant success rates.
In a rare success for the much-headlined vision of gene therapy, scientists said on Wednesday they had corrected flawed DNA in an 18-year-old man suffering from a debilitating form of anaemia.
