  1. 1. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation : patients’ and sibling donors’ perspectives

    Author : Annika M Kisch; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation; Confidentiality; Information and care model; Quality of life; Perspectives; Sibling donor; Stem cell donation;

    Abstract : Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (hereafter HSCT) is an established treatment which offers a potential cure for a variety of diseases, mainly haematological malignancies. However, the treatment is also associated with significant risks of acute complications and late side effects, including mortality. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human Embryonic Stem Cells: Directed Differentiation into Posterior Foregut Endoderm and a Functional Assay for Definitive Endoderm

    Author : Martina Johannesson; Immunologi; []

    Abstract : A decade has passed since the first human embryonic stem cell (hESC) line was established, providing immense hope in curing diseases by cell replacement therapy. For instance, in the pancreas, the insulin-producing β-cells are damaged in diabetes patients, and a successful replacement of those cells could provide a cure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anti-tumour effect in solid tumours, tolerance and immune reconstition after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation

    Author : Patrik Hentschke; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Both in haematological malignancies and in disseminated solid tumours, re-occurrence of the underlying disease is the main complication. Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) increases the chance of cure compared to only chemotherapy in haematological malignancies, but adds the risk of immunological complications such as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and severe infections.
