    This study aimed to investigate how type 1 diabetes mellitus patients perceive hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Twelve patients participated, ranging in age from 16 to 24 years. Semi-structured interviews were held before and one year after the HSCT. Three categories emerged from...

    The article comments on a study published in this issue of the journal which examined the interaction between killer-cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) genes and human leucocyte antigen (HLA) in hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT). It cites some unanswered question on the...

  • Integration of humoral and cellular HLA-specific immune responses in cord blood allograft rejection. Hanajiri, R; Murata, M; Sugimoto, K; Murase, M; Sakemura, R; Goto, T; Watanabe, K; Imahashi, N; Terakura, S; Ohashi, H; Akatsuka, Y; Kurahashi, S; Miyamura, K; Kiyoi, H; Nishida, T; Naoe, T // Bone Marrow Transplantation;Sep2015, Vol. 50 Issue 9, p1187 

    In allo-stem cell transplantation (SCT), it is unclear whether donor-specific anti-HLA Abs (DSAs) can actually mediate graft rejection or if they are simply surrogate markers for the cellular immunity that causes graft rejection. Here, we first analyzed a case of cord blood allograft rejection...

    In recent years tryptophan metabolism and its rate limiting enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) have attracted increasing attention for their potential to modulate immune responses including the regulation of transplantation tolerance. The focus of this review is to discuss some features of...

    The aim of the present study was to investigate the immunological effect induced by bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in rats that had undergone an orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). MSCs were isolated and cultured from the bone marrow tissue of Lewis rats. In total, 42 rat OLT...
