The lessons from the experience with radioprotectors world wide are that the animal studies using death of the irradiated animals as the end point is the most confirmatory, because the 30 days time period after lethal whole body irradiation clearly indicates the capacity of the drug, in test to modulate the recovery and regeneration of the gastrointestinal epithelium and the hemopoietic progenitor cells in the bone marrow, the two most radiosensitive organs that are essential for sustenance of life.
Their data indicate that proliferation and/or differentiation processes of hemopoietic stem cells are influenced by TCDD administered 5-6 weeks postpartum.

Expression of Ang1 receptors on primitive hemopoietic stem cells suggests that this factor may also be useful in regenerating blood cells -- as might be beneficial during chemotherapy -- as well as in forming blood vessels.
Lenocta has also been demonstrated to augment cytokine signaling and responses in hemopoietic cell lines, which can enhance the body's immune system.
Our results strongly suggest that the dysfunction of the p53 gene, possibly caused by strong and repeated genetic and epigenetic effects of benzene on candidate leukemia cells, may induce fatal problems such as those of cell cycle checkpoint, apoptosis, and the DNA repair system, finally resulting in hemopoietic malignancies.
The majority of all the cell type involved in the immune system is produced from common hemopoietic stem cells of bone marrow.
