Abstract Accumulating evidence supports the idea that stem and progenitor cells play important roles in skeletal development. Over the last decade, the definition of skeletal stem and progenitor cells has evolved from cells simply defined by their in vitro behaviors to cells fully defined by a combination of sophisticated approaches, including serial transplantation assays and in vivo lineage-tracing experiments. These approaches have led to better identification of the characteristics of skeletal stem cells residing in multiple sites, including the perichondrium of the fetal bone, the resting zone of the postnata...

The protective properties of certain helminthes are attributed to their secretory compounds which immunomodulate the host immune network in order to survive. Thus, the helminthes use an array of mechanisms. One of the major mechanisms enabling manipulation ...
