The article offers information on two studies related to hematopoietic stem cell development and transplantation in human body. It states that hematopoietic stem cells are widely studied stem cells and have been deployed for many therapeutic researches. It further highlights the differences between bone marrow-derived and embryonic stem cells (ESCs).

    We postulated that Oct4+SSEA-1+Sca-1+Lin−CD45− very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs) isolated from adult bone marrow (BM) could be a reserve population for tissue-committed stem cells. The aim of this study was to elucidate the developmental origin of these cells. We report...

    Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) sustain blood production throughout life. HSCs are capable of extensive proliferative expansion, as a single HSC may reconstitute lethally irradiated hosts. In steady-state, HSCs remain largely quiescent and self-renew at a constant low rate, forestalling their...

    Plerixafor is a novel kind of drug which administration leads to a hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSC) mobilization independently of chemotherapy or G-CSF. Plerixafor is a small molecule bicyclam derivate and inhibits reversibly the SDF-1/CXCR4 interaction, which belongs to the most...

    Intensive research of hematopoiesis using human embryonic stem cells (hESC) as a unique starting cell population has enabled differentiation and isolation of diverse hematopoietic cell lineages. However, there has been only limited success in derivation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) capable...

    The article reports on the relationship of embryonic stem (ES) cells and adult stem cells. It is noted that while ES cells give rise to all cell types in the body, homeostasis is maintained by adult stem cells. It is concluded that embryonic and blood-generating haematopoietic stem cells share a...

    In recent decades, there has been considerable amount of information about embryonic stem cells (ES). The dilemma facing scientists interested in the development and use of human stem cells in replacement therapies is the source of these cells, i.e. the human embryo. There are many ethical and...
