Increased numbers of white blood cells called eosinophils can cause disease. To investigate this disease, researchers need normal blood and bone marrow samples to compare to samples from p...
Natural Killer (NK) cells play a unique role during innate immune responses as they are able to recognize and eliminate, without specific sensitization, tumors, microbe-infected cells as w...
This study is designed to provide bone marrow and/or blood cells for other research studies. Patients participating in this study will be asked to provide small amounts of medical informa...
This study will focus on a rare cell population called fibrocytes in peripheral blood, bone marrow and synovial tissue in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). One group of patients with early RA and...
A Study of Eritoran (E5564) Administered IV Over 14 Days Prior to and During Bone Marrow Engraftment in BMT Patients Who Have Received Myeloablative Conditioning Treatment and Are Receiving Bone Marrow or Stem Cells From Matched Related Donors
This is a study designed to assess the safety of administration of up to 3 dose levels of eritoran in subjects undergoing or scheduled to undergo allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT). ...
Bone remodeling takes place in the bone marrow environment. We investigated if levels of bone turnover markers (BTMs) differ between bone marrow and peripheral blood, if the bone marrow is an independ...
More than 60% of patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) are over 60 years old at presentation. The purpose of this study was to compare the potential risks and benefits of allogeneic HSCT in elderly...
Although donation of bone marrow (BM) or peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) from children to family members undergoing allogeneic transplantation are well-established procedures, studies detailing lev...
Peripheral Blood (PB) or Bone Marrow (BM) from unrelated donors can serve as a graft source for hematopoietic cell transplantation. Currently, PB is most commonly used in roughly 80% of adult recipien...
The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.
Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.
The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.
The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
