Use of umbilical cord blood transplants to cure independent in children with resistant cancers and rare metabolic diseases 460 to date. She and her colleagues have transplanted more children with cord blood than any other group in the world and proved just this year, that from stem cells to cord blood actually infiltrate the brain and heart muscle repair the damage.. Kurtzberg team also has the advantages of cord blood can be used, in order to avoid children radiation prior to transplant, a neurologically toxic therapy, which is often necessary to make bone marrow transplants – but not cord blood transplants – successful. ‘We have chemotherapy, which allows transplant, without the child generated radiation,’said Kurtzberg. ‘We avoid capable to a large extent to a large extent, the properties of cord blood can we transplant easily and with less manipulation of cells than would adult bone marrow adult bone marrow ‘ – when the findings still won one more example of the promising possibilities of stem cells from umbilical cord blood, she said Kurtzberg pioneered.
From umbilical cord blood stem cells, the enzyme needed in the brain and the rest of the body, thus controlling the disease and help repair in these organs and tissues showed the Duke study.. Blood Stem Cells Save children with Hurler’s syndromestem cells from a newborn umbilical cord blood can save the lives of children with Hurler’s syndrome and has a lot of the progressive brain and organ damage repair else to kill children, in to the doctors Pediatric blood of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center and Marrow Transplant Program. With with this rare metabolic disorder at the age of 6 because they lack an important enzyme, alpha-L-iduronidase, the progressive damage in the brain, bone, cartilage, liver and corneas leads to -.Despite the effectiveness and safety be established, Those with by the need to of the drug by slowly subcutaneous or intravenous infusion of of eight to 12 hours a night a period of between five and seven days makes it an inconvenient and painful choice for patient. Unlike deferoxamine being deferasirox appears to a even daily basis and drinkable byte format and offers a very promising alternative. ‘Means the ease and convenience of deferasirox have will mean more patients need frequent blood transfusions, especially in young children, able successfully treated and a normal and healthy life,’said Mary Domenica Cappellini, out of University of Milan, Italian, and lead author of the report.. The current standard treatment the body of excess the body of excess iron being desferrioxamine, managed long as the patient blood transfusions, which may receive to many patients for the remainder.
The results of an international study deferasirox have, a new medicine the way the way treatment out of chronic iron overload is will be the first in Releases May 2006, issue of Blood, the official journal which American Society of Hematology..
