Bacterial infection stresses hematopoietic stem cells – Medical Xpress – Medical Xpress

By Sykes24Tracey

Bacterial infection activates hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow and significantly reduces the ability to produce blood through induced proliferation. Credit: Professor Hitoshi Takizawa It has been thought that only immune cells would act as the line of defense during bacterial infection. However, recent research has revealed that hematopoietic stem cells, cells that create all other blood cells throughout an individual’s lifetime, are also able to respond to the infection.

After treatment for serious illness, NBC-5 anchor Rob Stafford returning to air – Chicago Tribune

By daniellenierenberg

NBC-5 News anchor Rob Stafford will return to the air Monday, after months of grueling treatment for a rare blood disorder that gave him a harrowing look at “my own mortality.” “I thought we’d get this thing nipped in the bud,” said Stafford, 58, who took a leave of absence in March after being diagnosed to be in the early stages of amyloidosis. Instead, Stafford said, he spent much of the last six months too sick to eat, drink or walk while learning that the road back to health from serious illness is a process. “You learn that everybody reacts to these drugs differently and there is no guarantee of any outcome,” he said

Researcher Seeks to Unravel the Brain’s Genetic Tapestry to Tackle Rare Disorder – University of Virginia

By NEVAGiles23

In 2013, University of Virginia researcher Michael McConnell published research that would forever change how scientists study brain cells. McConnell and a team of nationwide collaborators discovered a genetic mosaic in the brains neurons, proving that brain cells are not exact replicas of each other, and that each individual neuron contains a slightly different genetic makeup. McConnell, an assistant professor in the School of Medicines Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, has been using this new information to investigate how variations in individual neurons impact neuropsychiatric disorders like schizophrenia and epilepsy
