Plasma levels and production of soluble stem cell factor by marrow stromal cells in patients with aplastic anaemia.

Abstract

Defective marrow stroma or microenvironment have been proposed as one of several mechanisms to account for bone marrow failure in aplastic anaemia (AA). Stem cell factor (SCF), the ligand for the c-kit receptor, is produced mainly by marrow stromal cells and seems to reflect the haemopoietic function of bone marrow stroma. We measured the plasma levels of… (More)
