Very limited data exists in Thailand regarding the frequency of BCR-ABL leukemic gene and its prognostic implication in Thai CML patients. The objective of this study was to develop a rapid molecular assay for the detection of the two most commonly reported variants of BCR-ABL fusion gene, B2A2 and B3A2 in CML patients. Bone marrow or peripheral blood were(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from amnion are considered to be adult stem cells that can be easily obtained in large quantities by a less invasive method in comparison to bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs). However; the biological properties and the differentiation capacity of amnion-derived MSCs (AM-MSCs) are still poorly characterized. The(More)
Hematopoietic progenitor cells are present in the blood and the bone marrow. Changes in the numbers of hematopoietic progenitor cells reflect alteration of pluripotent stem cells. We discuss such changes in common hematologic diseases including aplastic anemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and thalassemia. In aplastic anemia, the numbers of(More)
Little data exists in Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries regarding the biological characteristics of adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In this study, we performed a flow cytometric analysis of 267 Thai adult AML cases to delineate the pattern of leukemic cell surface antigens. Forty-eight cases (18%) were identified as acute promyelocytic(More)
BACKGROUND The role of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSC) in preventing the incidence and ameliorating the severity of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) has recently been reported. However, as the collection of BM-MSC is an invasive procedure, more accessible sources of MSC are desirable. AIM This study aimed to explore the alternative(More)
Stem cell transplantation (SCT) has become the therapy of choice for many hematologic and immunologic disorders. At present, only 25% of patients have suitable HLA-identical donors. In an attempt to increase the donor pool for SCT in Thailand and Southeast Asia, we developed a program whereby parents and mismatched siblings can be used as donors. In this(More)
