Abstract

Blood products are often irradiated to prevent proliferation of lymphocytes which could cause graft-vs.-host disease in immunocompromised recipients. The effects of irradiation on the function of blood components is discussed. It is concluded that 1500 rad is sufficient to prevent lymph...read more

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.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

Graft vs Host Disease

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after allogeneic haematopoietic cell transplantation from unrelated donors. Here is the latest research.


Neutrophils

Neutrophils are an essential component of the innate immune response and a major contributor to inflammation. Here is the latest research on neutrophils.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.
