The ex vivo expansion of hematopoietic progenitors is a promising approach for accelerating the engraftment of recipients, particularly when cord blood (CB) is used as a source of hematopoietic graft. With the aim of defining the in vivo repopulating properties of ex vivo-expanded CB cells, purified CD34(+) cells were subjected to ex vivo expansion, and(More)
Studies have proposed that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) improve the hematopoietic engraftment in allogeneic or xenogeneic transplants and this is probably due to the MSCs’ immunosuppressive properties. Our study aimed to discern, for the first time, whether MSC infusion could facilitate the engraftment of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in autologous(More)
