Activation of Gs-coupled receptors enhances engraftment of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs). We tested the hypothesis that treprostinil, a prostacyclin analog approved for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension, can be repurposed to improve hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Murine and human HSPCs were isolated from bone marrow and(More)
Dehydration of the apical surface of cystic fibrosis (CF) airway epithelia leads to a greatly impaired mucociliary clearance function in CF patients. In an in vitro cell model of human airway epithelia taken from CF patients and cultivated for 60 days, mucociliary clearance was zero. Tyloxapol, a synthetic surfactant, is able to restore the mucociliary(More)
Background Hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation is a standard procedure in the treatment of hematological disorders and also applicable to support aggressive chemotherapy in cancer. In practice, the clinical outcome is often limited by inefficient bone marrow (BM) engraftment or by low numbers of available stem cells. It would therefore be(More)
