Dexamethasone and hydrocortisone enhance the in vitro migration of prethymic stem cells to thymus supernatant.

Abstract

The migration of prethymic stem cells from the bone marrow to thymus supernatant was examined in a blind well migration assay following treatment with glucocorticoids (GCS). To study the in vivo effects of GCS, time release pellets containing dexamethasone (DEX) were implanted subcutaneously in young adult CBA/J mice for 7, 14 and 21 days. After seven and… (More)
