CXCR4 (CD184) Expression on Stem cell Harvest and CD34+ Cells Post-transplant

Conclusion SDF-1/CXCR4 axis plays a crucial role in engraftment; however, more studies are warranted to assess their expression post-transplant. Evaluating the ligand (chemokine, SDF-1) or its receptor (CXCR4) may serve as potential surrogate markers for assessment of engraftment.

This study aims to check the feasibility of the KDPI for a Spanish population and its predictive ability of graft and patient survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data from 2,734 kidney transplants carried out in Andalusia between January 2006 and December 2015 were studied. Cases were grouped by recipient age, categorised by KDPI quartile and both graft and patient survival were compared among groups. RESULTS: The KDPI accurately discriminated optimal organs from suboptimal or marginal ones. For adult recipients (aged: 18-59years) it presents a hazard ratio of 1.013 (P

In this study, we perform in-depth analysis of the transcriptional heterogeneity between these three stages of hESC derivation in order to correlate their downstream effects on pluripotency states and differentiation. We reveal that although PICMI is transcriptionally in close proximity to the hESC profile and distinct from ICM, it exhibits upregulation of primordial germ cell markers, dependence on LIF signaling, upregulation of na ïve pluripotency-specific signaling networks and appears to be a switching point from naïve to primed pluripotency. This indicates similarities with mouse epiblast-like cells displayi...

Contributors : Changbin Sun ; Xi ZhangSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensHuman embryonic stem cells (hESCs) have the pluripotency to form any cell type in the body, making them attractive cell sources in drug screening, regenerative medicine, disease and developmental processes modeling. However, not all hESC lines have equal potency to generate desired cell types in vitro, significant variation has been observed for the differentiation efficiency of various human ESC lines, and the precise underpinning molecular mechanism are still unclear. In this work, we compared tran...

Authors: Yu J, Hu M, Chen W, Wen Z Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the expression levels of mRNA of the B cell-specific Moloney murine leukemia virus integration site 1 (BMI-1) and the WW domain-containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) genes and their protein products in tissues from patients with liver cancer with normal liver tissues from patients without liver cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS The liver cancer group (N=56) included patients with available tissue samples of histologically confirmed liver cancer. The control group (N=24) included histologically confirmed normal liver tissue samples. Im...

(Natural News) Organ transplants are considered one of the greatest advances of modern medicine. It’s incredible to think that an organ that is no longer needed by one person can be placed into someone else’s body and give them a new lease on life. Of course, it’s also one of the riskiest medical procedures –...

This study aimed to identify the risk factors associated with complications and/or graft failure in kidney transplant patients with sepsis. A total of 14,658 kidney transplant patients with sepsis, identified in the National Inpatient Sample (NIS) database (data from 2005-2014), were included in the study and classified into three groups: patients without complications or graft failure/dialysis (Group 1), patients with complications only (Group 2), and patients with complications and graft failure/dialysis (Group 3). Multinomial logistic regression analyses were conducted to evaluate factors associated with kidney transpla...
