Phenotypical and functional characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow: comparison of culture using different media supplemented with human platelet lysate or fetal bovine serum
IntroductionMesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells able to differentiate into several mesenchymal lineages, classically derived from bone marrow (BM) but potentially from umbilical cordExpand

Stromal cell-derived factor 1 polymorphism in patients infected with HIV and implications for AIDS progression in Tunisia
Background An interesting finding in the epidemiology of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is that certain mutations in genes coding for chemokines, and their receptors and ligands, mayExpand

Extended HLA haplotypes in multiplex families with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus in Tunisian population: HLA serological typing and RFLP analysis.
Haplotypes including HLA A, B, C, DR, and DQ were compared in a study population comprising 18 Tunisian multiplex families with diabetic children. Eighty haplotypes found in IDDM patients wereExpand

HLA A, B, and DR antigens and complotype in Tunisian patients with diabetes mellitus.
The frequency of HLA A, B, and DR antigens as well as the Bf and C4 allotypes have been investigated in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and compared to that of healthy controls in theExpand

Human cytokine expression profile in various conditioned media for in vitro expansion bone marrow and umbilical cord blood immunophenotyped mesenchymal stem cells.
INTRODUCTION Bone marrow (BM) represents the major source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs); however, umbilical cord blood (UCB) MSCs have some advantages over BM, such as a higher differentiationExpand

Association of stromal cell-derived factor-1-3'A polymorphism to higher mobilization of hematopoietic stem cells CD34+ in Tunisian population.
We explored the influence of polymorphisms in genes encoding the chemokine stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1)/CXCL12 in a cohort of Tunisian patients with malignant hematologic diseases multipleExpand

C4 polymorphism in multiplex families with insulin dependent diabetes in the Tunisian population: standard C4 typing methods and RFLP analysis.
The polymorphism of C4A and C4B genes was investigated in Tunisian patients with insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM) and compared to family members (sibs) and to healthy controls. Multiplex familiesExpand

NA antigen frequencies in the Tunisian population.
The biallelic NA antigen system is of special interest as the NA antigens are frequent targets of neutrophil antibodies, causing alloimmune neonatal neutropenia, blood transfusion reactions, andExpand

[HLA, A, B, C, DR, C4, Bf in insulin-dependent diabetics in the Tunisian population].
There is no doubt that the autoimmune process in human disease depends on genetic factors. Varying associations were noticed between HLA DR and autoimmune disorders. The frequency of HLA-A-B and DRExpand
