Platelet-rich plasma improves therapeutic effects of menstrual blood-derived stromal cells in rat model of intrauterine adhesion

Intrauterine adhesion (IUA) is a major cause of female secondary infertility. We previously demonstrated that menstrual blood-derived stromal cell (MenSC) transplantation helped severe IUA patients have pregna...

There is nothing more frustrating than when the cure is part of the problem. Because depression is prevalent in patients with physical disorders like cancer, stroke, and heart disease, medications often interact with each other, complicating treatment. To appropriately manage depression, you and your physician need to evaluate all medications involved and make sure they aren’t cancelling each other out. A review in the journal Dialogues in Clinical Neuroscience a while back highlighted certain medications that can cause depression. The following are medications to watch out for. Medications to Treat Seizures and Park...

(Abstracted from Science 2018;362:356–360) Studies have shown that mouse pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) can be induced into primordial germ cell–like cells (hPGCLCs), which, following transplantation under appropriate conditions, can contribute to the development of gametes capable of developing into fertile offspring. Human in vitro gametogenesis from PSCs has long-reaching implications in reproductive medicine but has not yet been achieved.

(Abstracted from Hum Reprod 2018;33:2249–2255) Cytotoxic cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy, cause damage to spermatogenic stem cells (SSCs), jeopardizing the fertility of young men of reproductive age. One potential method for future production of sperm in this population is SSC transplantation.

Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) is a potentially curative treatment for malignant and non-malignant blood disorders. Current regimens for patient preparation, or conditioning, prior to BMT limit the use of this curative procedure due to regimen-related mortality and morbidities, including risks of organ toxicity, infertility and secondary malignancies. To safely condition patients for BMT, we are developing antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) targeting CD45, a target expressed throughout the hematopoietic system to specifically deplete both hematopoietic stem cell (HSCs) and immune cells prior to transplant.

When Noah Shulman was born a few days after Christmas 2016, his parents Kristelle and Evan had no reason to worry about him. The pregnancy went smoothly, and so did the birth. But within a few days of taking his first breath, Noah began to struggle. He wasn’t feeding, so he started losing weight. He was also lethargic. Several pediatricians reassured the Shulmans that they were probably just overly sensitive to Noah’s symptoms because Kristelle is a nurse and Evan is a physician assistant–a case of first-time-parent-white-coat syndrome. “They kind of dismissed us as neurotic parents,” says Eva...

Stem cells survive oncotherapy &can regenerate non-functional gonads: A paradigm shift for oncofertility. Indian J Med Res. 2018 Dec;148(Supplement):S38-S49 Authors: Bhartiya D Abstract A large proportion of patients who survive cancer are rendered infertile as an unwanted side effect of oncotherapy. Currently accepted approaches for fertility preservation involve banking eggs/sperm/embryos or ovarian/testicular tissue before oncotherapy for future use. Such approaches are invasive, expensive, technically challenging and depend on assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Establishing a gonadal ti...

ntsIntroductionMyelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is clinically and biologically heterogeneous. Although the pathobiology of MDS is complex and not fully understood, the development of MDS involves a series of genetic changes, which influence hematopoietic growth and differentiation, resulting in the accumulation of abnormal cells and the impairment of normal hematopoiesis. Recently, Lindsley et al. reported the difference in the mutation of MDS genes in adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients and elder patients. These results suggested that MDS in AYA patients was biologically different from MDS in elderly patients. In addi...

IntroductionBone Marrow Transplant (BMT) is a potentially curative treatment for malignant and non-malignant blood disorders and has demonstrated impressive outcomes in autoimmune diseases. Prior to BMT, patients are prepared with high-dose chemotherapy alone or with total body irradiation, and both are associated with early and late morbidities, such as infertility, secondary malignancies and organ toxicity; and substantial risk of mortality. This greatly limits the use of BMT in malignant and non-malignant conditions. To address these issues, we are developing antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) targeting hematopoietic stem ...

Conclusions: Anti-CD117-AM exhibited potent elimination of NHP HSCs and progenitors in vivo. The potency of short half-life anti-CD117-AM was comparable, providing a model for target cell depletion and rapid clearance prior to BMT. Both ADCs were well tolerated at the efficacious doses. This strategy preserves the adaptive immune system with delayed onset of neutrophil nadir (18 days), potentially shortening the period of neutropenia. Targeted depletion of hematopoietic cell subtypes with limited off-target effects could provide a significant improvement in standard-of-care approaches to patient preparation prior to HSC tr...
