However, the use of these cells theoretically carries risks such as animal cell transplantation, infection, rejection, and microchimerism
Applications such as detection of microchimerism
, or minimal residual disease in oncology, do however need to consider LOD.
No evidence for maternal-fetal microchimerism
in infantile hemangioma: a molecular genetics investigation.
Lack of association between thyroid autoantibodies and parity in a population study argues against microchimerism
as a trigger of thyroid autoimmunity.
Moms and babies harbor little pieces of each other due to a process called fetal-maternal microchimerism
(SN Online: 5/10/15).
There is probably more than one trigger and it has been thought that foetal cells might create a form of microchimerism
that could explain the response.
I am fascinated by 3 new paradigms, fetomaternal microchimerism
, the gastrointestinal microbiome, and low-carbohydrate high-fat diets as examples of entirely new understandings within clinical pathology.
Self-recognition and the role of fetal microchimerism
A specialist in the USA (who's an expert in the effect of pregnancy on RA) suggested that my seemingly miraculous remission may have been due to something called foetal microchimerism
- where my baby's genes passed into my blood, giving me some sort of immunity boost.
substantiates that heterologous prenatal adoption, even if done with a noble intention to save the child's life, is incapable of being oriented to God or human flourishing.
While the medical implications of male DNA and male cells in the brain are unknown, studies of other kinds of microchimerism
- the harboring of genetic material and cells that were exchanged between fetus and mother during pregnancy - have linked the phenomenon to autoimmune diseases and cancer, sometimes for better and other times for worse.
