  • Langerhans cells are up to the job, they just need a chance
    Researchers found that Langerhans cells (LCs) play a crucial role in mucocutaneous acute guest-versus-host disease (aGVHD). Their experiments in mice showed that when the LCs of a recipient were depleted, the formation of mucocutaneous lesions was enhanced because the infiltration of CD8+ T cells was inhibited. Their findings have significant implications for improving blood stem cell transplantation treatments and clinical outcomes for patients.
  • New therapeutic approach against leukemia
    Using an RNA molecule complex, researchers can prevent retention of cancer stem cell in their tumor supporting niche.
