These differences can be explained by heterogeneity of diseases united under the common name of MDS that are often manifested by secondary immunodeficiency due to impaired hemopoiesis in the altered bone marrow niche.
Of note, despite that the use of frozen/thawed [CD34.sup.+] cells in some cases might have influenced the variability of phenotype/clonogenic ability, our results clearly demonstrate that the selected network of proinflammatory factors has the potential to activate either neonatal or adult normal hemopoiesis and acts as regulator of HSPCs.
The process of blood development is called hemopoiesis. About 1% of red bone marrow cells are pluripotent stem cells.
Myelodysplastic syndromes are a heterogeneous group of hemopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by dysplastic and ineffective hemopoiesis that usually accompany cytopenias and often progress to leukemia.
Furthermore, overexpression of [beta]-catenin in adult mouse HSCs leads to impaired ability of multipotential differentiation, exhaustion of the pool of HSCs, and declined hemopoiesis [12, 41].
Hemolysis in malaria leads to anemia, altering the hemopoiesis, to a disproportionate reticulocytes counts, reduced platelets and WBC counts.
Various factors contribute towards the development of anemia in infants; deficiency of micronutrients is the most important.1,2 Nutritional anemia is a condition in which the hemoglobin concentration is below the normal level due to deficiency of one or more of the micronutrients required for hemopoiesis.2 In Pakistan, 65% of the infants and children suffer from nutritional deficiency anemia.3 The most common cause of nutritional anemia is iron deficiency followed by deficiency of folic acid and vitamin B .2
In addition, an inflammatory reaction can occur, particularly following surgically assisted deliveries and Caesarean section, leading to iron sequestration in the macrophages and decrease of intestinal absorption, so that the administered iron is not available for hemopoiesis. (10)
This highlights the need to identify additional coupling elements which could account for the eosinophil-selective response in bone-marrow or in sites of extramedullary hemopoiesis. Here we have examined whether the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) pathway plays a role in the hematological response to allergen challenge, a possibility which is suggested by numerous observations, clinical and experimental.
