Influence of lithium on proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells.


We studied the effect of lithium on normal marrow hematopoiesis by determining the numbers of pluripotential (CFUS) and committed stem cells (CFUC, CFUE and BFUE) after in vitro and in vivo exposure to lithium. In the presence of 1 meq/L lithium in vitro, marrow CFUS and CFUC were increased; higher concentrations (greater than or equal to 5 meq/L) were… (More)
