Clinical isolation and functional characterization of cord blood CD133+ hematopoietic progenitor cells.


BACKGROUND Human cord blood is a relevant source of CD133+ HPCs. Clinical-scale isolation of human umbilical cord blood (UCB) CD133+ HPCs using immunomagnetic microbeads and the CliniMACS clinical cell isolator is reported. CD133+ HPCs isolated after large-scale processing were functionally characterized. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Closed disposable sets… (More)
