Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cell Support Bone Formation of Adipose-Derived Stem Cell
This study aims at investigating the co-implantation of human adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) after osteogenic differentiation and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) embedded in a vascularized osteogenic matrix of hydroxyapatite (HAp) ceramic for bone tissue engineering. Interestingly, the implantation of HUVEC led to bone formation, suggesting that implanted HUVEC stimulated bone formation. This result may be caused the ability of the extracellular matrix from HUVEC to stimulate the osteogenic differentiation of osteoprogenitor cells. The implantation of osteogenically differentiated ADSC led to higher bone formation than the implantation of HUVEC. But only the co-implantation of ADSC and HUVEC led to a statistically significant larger bone area compared to the other cell-containing groups. This supports the results of earlier studies which showed that endothelial cells stimulate proliferation, cell survival and osteogenic differentiation of osteoprogenitor cells in vitro and bone formation in vivo. Hence, the co-implantation of differentiated ADSCs with HUVECs may therefore be considered as a promising approach for bone tissue engineering. As the specialist in the production of endothelial cells, Abcell-bio is your partner to enable your research.

Which are the factors affecting human umbilical cord blood quality before cryopreservation?
Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Comparatively, UCB HSCs have an extensive proliferative capacity that exceeds that of bone marrow HSCs. However, the small quantity of HSCs obtained from an umbilical cord remains a problematic element restricting the usage of UCB and the quality of UCB units has to be checked before cryopreservation. This study aimed to determine the maternal and neonatal factors that influence UCB before selection for cryopreservation. The analysis included 403 processed UCB units. Neonates with higher birth weights produced better quality UCB units because of increased collected blood volumes, total nucleated cell counts, and CD34+ cell counts. However, an increase in the gestational age from 35 to 41 weeks led to decreases in the collected blood volume and CD34+ cell count.
As the specialist in the production of CD34+ progenitors from cord blood, Abcell-bio controls the collection and the selection of cord blood and guarantees you a number of CD34+ cells for each batch delivered.

Human CD34 + Hematopoietic Stem Cell-Engrafted NSG Mice: Morphological and Immunophenotypic Features
This study at characterizing the morphological phenotype of NSG mice and their humanized counterparts. CD34+ hu-NSG murine model was generated via perinatal intrahepatic injection of human CD34+ fetal liver cells into NSG mice after preconditioning irradiation. Another purpose of this study was to assess the spectrum of histopathological lesions and identify the main causes of morbidity and mortality in young NSG mice and CD34+ HSC hu-NSG mice. Indeed, despite the increased popularity of these animal models in preclinical research, data on this topic are very sparse. The study describes the most common pathological features in young NSG mice after human hematopoietic stem cell engraftment. Mice frequently showed nephropathy, ovarian atrophy, cataract, and abnormal retinal development, lesions considered secondary to irradiation. In addition, 20% exhibited multisystemic granulomatous inflammatory infiltrates, dominated by human macrophages and T cells, leading to the observed 7% of mortality and morbidity. As some of these lesions contribute to morbidity, morphological assessment of the engraftment at tissue level might help improve immunophenotypic evaluations of this animal model.
Establishment of Humanized Mice from Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells or Cord Blood CD34+ Hematopoietic Stem Cells.
Widely used for immuno-oncology studies evaluating new therapeutic agents, mice humanized with human tumors (CDX or PDX) and human immune system require carefully selected protocols.
