Hematopoiesis And Hematopoietic Cell Transplants

Stem Cell Regeneration Center Glossary

Hematopoietic stem cells are variants specifically found in bone marrow or blood in the umbilical cord, which is responsible for the formation of platelets, as well as RBCs (red blood cells) and WBCs (white blood cells). Hematopoietic stem cells (HSc) are also known as Blood cells. These powerful cells are in charge of continuous bodycare and immune protection of every cell type of the body. This relentless work demands that blood and skin cells, have the highest power to allow adult tissue self-renewal. [1]

Hematopoietic Cells from Bone Marrow | VIDEO

The cells that form blood and immune cells are called hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). There is literally a generation of a billion new blood cells every day. Doctors have understood and capitalized on this particular fact for over 55 years now in treating many types of medical illnesses and disorders.[2]

A hematopoietic stem cell isolated in the blood or bone marrow and can self-renew. Adults stem cells like Blood cells can identify and differentiate into many types of specialized cells. These cells can literally order your bone marrow into producing and circulating blood cells.


Cell Markers with a flow cytometer May Be Used to Recognize Hematopoietic Stem Cells for use in therapies.

Hematopoietic cells in the bone marrow ca do 4 things:
1) Renew Themselves
2) Differentiate
3) Mobilize bone marrow into circulation more cells for repairs using cytokines
4) Undergo a programmed cell death known as apoptosis

Effectiveness of Peripheral Blood Vs Bone Marrow Derived Cells
Peripherally harvested from the white blood cells have a few advantages over bone marrow derived. Peripheral blood cells are much easier to obtain does not require painful needles and is much more straightforward procedure. Creating differentiated white and red blood cells are the work of HSCs and progenitor cells. [3]
