Mexico's Instituto Mexicano de la Propiedad Industrial issued to Pluristem patent #MX 327981 titled, "Method and Apparatus for Maintenance and Expansion of Hemopoietic Stem Cells
and/or Progenitor Cells," addressing the use of stromal cells for supporting the growth of Hematopoietic Stem Cells in the context of bone marrow transplantation.
Included are chapters on ophthalmic use; complex composite vascular tissue grafting such as hand and face transplantation; the use of donated gametes in assisted reproduction; the use of hemopoietic stem cells
and mesenchymal stem cells; embryonic or neural stem cells and the central nervous system, with a focus on Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage, and stroke; pancreatic islet cells; and cardiac stem cells.
Experimental and clinical researches on hemopoietic stem cells
in Kazakhstan, Almaty.
The use of hemopoietic stem cells
derived from human umbilical cord blood to promote restoration of spinal cord tissue and recovery of hindlimb function in adult rats.
Information about the donors will be available to Russian patients at the Karelian foundation of donors of hemopoietic stem cells
The high expression level of the mphl/rae28 gene in the WT mice with severely suppressed bone marrow cellularity is noteworthy with respect to the maintenance of the activity of hemopoietic stem cells
