The study included 56 consecutive allotransplanted patients (Table 1) during a 77-month period, representing all adult patients from a defined geographic area (Norwegian Health Regions III, IV, and V) transplanted with a family donor; the decision to do an allotransplantation was taken by the Norwegian Advisory Board for Stem Cell Transplantation and based on national guidelines.
One case, a 38-year-old man with blood group A who had been allotransplanted for multiple myeloma with PBPCs from his fully-matched sister with blood group O, developed severe immune hemolysis on day 9.
This evidence is compatible with the results presented here, which suggest that the CM obtained from the in vitro culture and expansion of these cells could be an alternative therapeutic option compared to the in vivo transplantation of these stem cells, as it can benefit from the local tissue response to the secreted molecules without the difficulties and complications associated with the engraftment of the allotransplanted or xenotransplanted cells.
The mechanism underlying these effects involves not only [CD4.sup.+] [FoxP3.sup.-] effector T cells ([T.sub.eff] cells) but also [CD4.sup.+] [FoxP3.sup.+] regulatory T cells ([T.sub.reg] cells), which prevent GVHD and autoimmunity [28, 29], produced by the allotransplanted thymus.
