    This study revealed a novel mechanism including inhibition of this cell organelle, the lysosome, and dormancy. This opens the way to the potential use of lysosomes as a therapeutic target. Thousands of people around the world receive bone marrow transplants each year to help treat leukemia. Large dosages of chemotherapy are used quickly to kill cancer cells, but they also kill stem cells that are needed for healthy blood to reproduce. Stem cell transplants are used to regenerate a patient's healing blood supply, but finding a suitable donor can be difficult, especially in ethnically diverse communities where donor lists are limited. It may not be long or non-existent. Cord blood stem cells are of considerable value as an additional source of donors, but the number of stem cells is often too small for an adult recipient. Understanding how stem cells are activated a.. View More»
