Abstract

During the past few years, hematopoietic cell culture technologies for transplantation therapies have progressed significantly on several fronts. Advances include the discoveries of the growth factors thrombopoietin and Flt-3 ligand, the development of a variety of bioreactor systems, and results from preliminary clinical trials that demonstrate the efficacy of ex vivo expanded hematopoietic cells for transplantation therapy.
