    Adult stem cells from bone marrow have been used in the treatment of cancer for many years. Recently, however, interest has developed in the isolation and growth of adult, cord and embryonic stem cells for use in regenerative medicine. Their therapeutic use will undoubtedly be implemented in...

    Summary:We report a pilot study of a home-based aerobic exercise program in a group of 17 adult hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. Participants had received no cancer treatment for at least 6 months and reported leisure time physical activity less than 20?min per day and fewer...

    Conventional cancer therapies are plagued by disease relapses due to incomplete eradication of cancer-initiating cells. Evidence for cancer-initiating cells originally arose from studies in hematology and leukemia. Lessons learned from hematopoietic stem cells laid the bedrock for understanding...
