Pre-conditioning regimens before hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), such as total body irradiation (TBI) or busulfan/cyclophosphamide (BU/CY), are associated with hepatic veno-occlusive disease (HVOD). However, the mechanism of these regimens on hepatic veno-occlusive disease remains unclear. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of(More)
Engraftment of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) is a pre-requisite for the success of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Fetal blood cell (FBC)-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are known to facilitate HSC reconstitution in the early phase. However, longer term effects on HSCs remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the function of nucleotide-binding domain (NOD)-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammsomes in liver damage after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). METHODS The study presented a murine (BALB/c-based) model of allo-HSCT. Chimera rate was measured by flow cytometry. The hematoxylin-eosin, Masson's(More)
