Basic Sciences Behind BMAC and Expanded Stem Cells

Mohamed Ahmed Mandour, Asmaa Kamal Abdel Maogood, Eman Gamal Ahmed and Rania Mohammed Kishk

Abstract

Bone Marrow (BM) is a major hematopoietic organ in the human body being the main primary lymphoid organ; it is the source of production of all blood lineages. These cells are produced through an interaction between BM hematopoietic cells and the surrounding microenvironment in a unit called the stem cell niche that involves several cytokines, growth factors and transcriptional factors. The following chapter will entail an overview of MSCs, their isolation and clinical application.
