Cryopreserved Cord Blood Progenitors and Their Cell Adhesion Molecules Are Increased by Coculture With Osteoblasts and Parathyroid Hormone.
Despite the cord blood(CB) cells induces lower immunogenicity, CB transplantation is also associated with delayed neutrophil and platelet recovery relative to bone marrow transplantation. This suggests a possibility to increase the engraftment of hematopoietic cells in CB by increasing the abundances of primitive cells bearing adhesion molecules in the presence of hPTH.
