ABSTRACT
The bone marrow is constituted of two separate and distinct stem cells. The hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) are responsible for the production and maintenance of all the mature blood cells. The mesenchymal stem cells constituted the bone marrow stroma. In this report we review our current understanding on both stem cell populations. We also discuss the recent unexpected degree of differentiation plasticity that have been reported recently and the impacts these new discoveries may have in stem cell therapy.

    Summary:Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) occurs in approximately 60–80% of those who survive over 100 days after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). However, the pathophysiology of cGVHD is poorly understood. To gain more insight into the immunological...

    Hematopoietic SCT (HSCT) has become a curative therapeutic strategy for several malignant and nonmalignant diseases.

    Sensitized patients are at high risk for graft rejection during transplantation. It is of interest to investigate the effect of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) in sensitized hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. MSCs were generated from bone marrow cells of BALB/c mice. The molecular markers...
