Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC)

Units : Laboratory of Clinical Cell Therapy | ULB721

Description :

Ex vivo amplification and infusion in the context of autologous and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Immunomodulatory properties and pro-hematopoietic activities of mesenchymal stromal cells in experimental transplantation. Functions of
mesenchymal stromal cells and interactions with normal and pathologic cells. Influence of local environment (hypoxia, inflammation,
infection) on the migration, differentiation, immunomodulation and pro-hematopoietic activity of  MSC. Effect of Toll-like receptor
triggering on MSC functions. Characterization of MSC obtained from normal and leukemic bone marrow. Functional characterization of
mesenchymal stem cells isolated from distinct tissue sources (bone marrow, umbilical cord and adipose tissue) for their use in
cell therapy.
