Hemophilia is a genetic disorder linked to the X chromosome which results in deficiency or abnormality of factor VIII protein (FVIII). The replacement therapy using protein derived from human plasma or recombinant produced in hamster cell lines (CHO and / or BHK) are the only treatment options available. However, one of the largest replacement therapy problems is the formation of inhibi...
Immunotherapy with modified T cells to express chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) has been proven effective in remission of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children and young adults. The CAR possess an extracellular domain derived from antibody variable regions, and intracellular domains of T cell costimulation. CD19 protein has been shown to be an ideal target for therapies with CAR...
Hematopoiesis is the process of formation of blood cellular components from the differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC). The HSCs are found in adult human bone marrow cells at a ratio of 1 in every 10^6 cells. The difficulty in obtaining these cells and determining a protocol for ex vivo expansion leads us to seek alternative sources for the production of mature blood cells. I...
