Thailand. Leelahavarong, Pattara; Chaikledkaew, Usa; Hongeng, Suradej; Kasemsup, Vijj; Lubell, Yoel; Teerawattananon, Yot // BMC Health Services Research;2010, Vol. 10, p209
Background: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the only curative treatment available to severe thalassemic patients. The treatment, however, is very costly, particularly in the context of low and middle income countries, and no studies have been carried out to explore its economic...
- Adult stem cells can at least make blood. // New Scientist;1/27/2007, Vol. 193 Issue 2588, p17
The article reports on adult stem cells that can turn into any of the body's tissues by forming all of the cell types found in blood. Termed multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPCs) and isolated from bone marrow, they belong to a class of stem cells that normally form muscle and bone. Research...
