This article reports on a study which shows that bone marrow contributes to tumour stroma. There has recently been much excitement in the field of stem cell biology as adult bone marrow derived cells have been shown to have a greater degree of plasticity than previously thought. It was previously shown that bone marrow can contribute to myofibroblast populations in the mouse and human gut and very recently it was found that the bone marrow contribution to myofibroblast and fibroblast populations is a more generalised phenomenon, which is exacerbated by injury.

    It has been shown that transplanted bone marrow stem cells (BMSC) contribute to various cell lineages in the diseased colon including myofibroblasts, fibroblasts, smooth muscle (SM) cells, and epithelial cells. It can be shown that venules containing BMSC derived SM cells, endothelial cells, and...
