OBJECTIVE In comparison with stem cell transplantation using bone marrow or cytokine-mobilized peripheral blood, cord blood transplantation is characterized by delayed engraftment, in particular platelet recovery. The differences in the kinetics of engraftment may be related to quantitative differences in the numbers of stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells and/or to qualitative differences between megakaryocyte progenitor cells in these grafts. We compared the hematopoietic composition… CONTINUE READING
