New disease gene discovery sheds light on cause of bone marrow failure
The study, published in The American Journal of Human Genetics, detected and identified a new disease gene (ERCC6L2). View News Article (2014-02-07)

High cholesterol levels affect mobilization of cells from the bone marrow
Increased cholesterol levels are being increasingly recognised as risk factors for the onset and progression of several cancers. View News Article (2010-05-11)

Invasive procedures still performed on conscious children despite new anaesthetic techniques
Many invasive bone marrow procedures are still carried out in conscious children despite the safety and effectiveness of modern anaesthetic and deep sedation techniques, finds a study in Archives of Disease in Childhood. The findings also show a striking difference between the North American and European approaches to managing painful procedures in children with cancer. The research team surveyed...

Bone-marrow Cell Transplantation Could Save Limbs (p 427)
Injecting a patient’s bone-marrow cells into their legs could help repair damaged circulatory systems in those with limb ischaemia, suggest authors of a trial in this week’s issue of THE LANCET. Lower limb ischaemia is due to narrowing of the arteries and is a common condition, which if left untreated can lead to gangrene, amputation, and sometimes death. The disorder is usually...

Early signs that adult bone-marrow stem cells could regenerate brain tissue (p 1432)
Findings of a preliminary study in this week's issue of THE LANCET suggest that transplanted adult bone-marrow cells could regenerate nerve cells in the brains of human stem-cell recipients. These early findings, if confirmed in future research, have implications for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease. Ethical concerns over the use of embryonic stem cells has... View News Article (2004-04-28)

Children's Hospital study demonstrates how bone marrow transplant can cure sickle cell disease
A unique approach to bone marrow transplantation pioneered in part by a Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC physician has proven to be the only safe and effective cure for sickle cell disease, according to a new study. View News Article (2008-11-07)

Bone marrow cells can become functional gut lining cells
Researchers report the discovery that cells used in bone marrow transplantation can develop into new cells lining the gut, according to a study by Yale School of Medicine in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. View News Article (2006-03-03)

A new method for bone-marrow-derived liver stem cells isolation and proliferation
Great interest has been aroused in the identification and isolation of liver stem cells from bone marrow cells. Several subsets of bone marrow cells have been found to have the potential to differentiate into hepatocytes, however, sorting based on immunological methods is difficult because of the complicated surface markers of the stem cells; furthermore, no report of successful passage has been...

Bone marrow cell therapy may be beneficial for patients with ischemic heart disease
The injection of bone marrow cells into the heart of patients with chronic myocardial ischemia (reduced blood flow to some areas of the heart) was associated with modest improvements in blood flow and function of the left ventricle. View News Article (2009-05-20)

New bone marrow model could help people with sickle cell disease
A new model showing how sickle cell blood cells operate within bone marrow is presented at a conference in Austria today. Researchers at Imperial College London, who developed the model, hope that it will eventually be used by clinicians to advance more effective treatments for sickle cell disease.   This disease causes red blood cells to become misshapen and rigid, meaning that they cannot move...
