Lethal irradiation: treatment with immune cell populations

Annals of Plastic Surgery
M A Mandel


Lethally irradiated mice have been successfully treated by the inoculation of allogeneic spleen cell populations, without the development of a secondary graft-versus-host (GVH) reaction. This has been accomplished by eliminating those cells responsible for GVH reaction, using a density gradient ultracentrifugation technique. The therapeutic potential for this technique is great. It may well provide a modus operandi to treat patients exposed to otherwise lethal doses of radiation, as well as facilitate therapy of patients with cancer and immune deficiency diseases.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.

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.
