Special type of stem cell can reduce the amount of HIV virus – News-Medical.Net

In a groundbreaking study, a team of UC Davis researchers has discovered a special type of stem cell that can reduce the amount of the virus causing AIDS, boosting the body's antiviral immunity and repairing and restoring the gut's lymphoid follicles damaged by the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), the equivalent of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in non-human primates. The study, published June 22 in JCI Insight, showed the mechanism through which mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) enhance the body's immune response to the virus

Discrepancies Between Real-World Patterns of Care and Recommendations Based on Clinical Trials Exist in MCL – OncLive

Results from a retrospective, observational study, presented during the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting, showed that such discrepancies were notable in patients aged 65 years and younger, in that only 30.5% were treated with a cytarabine-containing chemotherapy regimen, and 23.3% underwent stem cell transplant. Additionally, among patients who were aged 65 years or older, approximately 65% received treatment with bendamustine and rituximab (Rituxan) or R-CHOP. Moreover, the real-world median time to next treatment for patients younger than 65 years was 28 months and 22.3 months in patients older than 65 years, which appeared worse than what has been reported with standard therapies in this population
