The history of bone marrow in orthopaedic surgery (part I trauma): trepanning, bone marrow injection in damage control resuscitation, and bone marrow aspiration to heal fractures

ConclusionIt will be many years before doing holes in the bone as orthopaedic trauma procedure will be relegated to the annals of history.

Asherman’s syndrome (AS) is characterized by intrauterine adhesion or fibrosis resulting from damage to the endometrium, often leading to amenorrhea, infertility, or recurrent pregnancy loss. Although various therapeutic strategies for AS have been proposed, the options remain limited. New strategies such as bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell (BM-MSC) therapy aim to potentiate the intrinsic capacity of endometrial regeneration. However, BM-MSC therapy has not been widely adopted mainly because it involves invasive and expensive procedures such as bone marrow biopsy and cell storing. On the other hand, platelet...

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all...

Authors: Smadja DM Abstract New blood vessel formation in adults was considered to result exclusively from sprouting of preexisting endothelial cells, a process referred to angiogenesis. Vasculogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from endothelial progenitor cells, was thought to occur only during embryonic life. Discovery of adult endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in 1997 opened the door for cell therapy in vascular disease. Endothelial progenitor cells contribute to vascular repair and are now well established as postnatal vasculogenic cells in humans. It is now admitted that endothelial colony-forming c...

Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by bone marrow failure, malformations, and chromosome fragility. Patients who reach adulthood are more likely to develop solid tumors, such as oral squamous cell carcinoma. The survival rate of patients with FA is low, since they present with hematologic complications, septicemia, or malignant neoplasias. The aim of this study is to report 2 cases of female patients with FA at 20 and 34 years of age, both of whom underwent transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells 8 and 17 years ago, respectively, and who developed oral lesions on the tongue and gin...

Conclusions: CD200 has a great impact in diagnosing B- chronic lymphoproliferative disorders, especially when we want to determine the origin of a CD19, CD5 positive population and distinguish between CLL and MCL. CD 23 is a reliable marker in those cases, but, as we showed, CD23 might have a lower specificity than CD200 for CLL. We added CD200 in our panels in order to diagnose chronic lymphoproliferative disorders, not to replace CD 23, but to improve and save time in our diagnostic process. The high expression of CD200 in CLL and HCL could open the option for new- targeted therapy (anti-CD200). PMID: 31803290 [PubMed]

Abstract Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a chronic autoimmune disease involving the peripheral nervous system, characterized by focal and segmental demyelination accounting for neurological deficit. CIDP diagnosis is based on several criteria and requires the presence of specific clinical symptoms and of demyelinating criteria on the electroneuromyogram (ENMG) or of additional supportive criteria (spinal fluid examination with dissociation between albumin level and cellular abnormalities, nervous abnormalities on MRI or other minor abnormalities on ENMG, demyelinating features on nerve ...

Conclusion: WLL in patients with pulmonary alveolar proteinosis can stabilize patients until a definitive diagnosis can be made. Bone marrow transplantation may cure PAP due to a mutation in the OAS1 gene.

AbstractThe immunohistochemical stain ERG is a useful diagnostic marker for leukemia cutis. Translocations involving theERG gene have been identified in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and it plays critical roles in differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells. However, little is known about ERG expression in the bone marrow or in myeloid neoplasms. The aim of this study is to characterize ERG expression in normal bone marrow specimens, and those with various myeloid neoplasms. We performed immunohistochemical studies assessing ERG expression in bone marrow biopsies obtained over a 1-year period, in which myeloperoxidase (MPO)...
