Abstract

The capacity of the spleen cells of CBA mice to antibody formation as well as to the "graft-versus-host" (GVH) reaction and the change in the stem cell number determined by the spleen colony method were studied after unilateral removal or burn of the submandibular salivary gland and amputation of lower incisors. It is shown that any of these experimental changes in the salivary gland state causes an increase in the stem cell migration and makes lymphocytes more active in inducing the GVH reaction. The ability of spleen lymphocytes to react on additional antigen stimuli increases after amputation of lower incisors, accompanied by an enlargement of salivary glands, and sharply decreases after the removal or burn of the submandibular salivary gland, not causing hypertrophy of salivary glands.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
