Hematopoietic Stem Cells Transplantation
During embryonic development Hematopoietic Stem cells starts growing. These cells are basically found in umbilical cord blood and bone marrow. Hemati is a Greek prefix =blood, poesies/poietic suffix= formation and expresses CD34. Self-renewing, multipotent cells, progenitor cells gives rise to blood cells (Haematopoiesis). It maintains the production of blood cells throughout the life. Bone marrow Transplantation has become Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) after the introduction of peripheral blood and umbilical cord stem cells. This HSCT has become a standard treatment for malignant (e.g. Multiple myeloma, ovarian cancer) and non-malignant blood disorders (e.g. amyloidosis, Autoimmune Disorders). Hematopoietic Stem Cells Transplantation is a unique effective treatment which provides normal stem cell production for many malignancies and disorders.
