    ABSTRACT: To explore a simple and effective method to determinate the volume of CD34(+) cells in the peripheral blood of donors received drug mobilization for stem cell transplantation by using flow cytometry, the mobilized peripheral blood from donors and 100 micro l fresh whole blood were labeled with monoclonal antibodies Anti-CD34-PE and Anti-CD45-FITC, after lying the red blood cells, and assessed with flow cytometer FL2 (log) vs SSC (log) and FL1 (log) vs SSC (log) were mainly used for analysis windows. The results showed that a level of CD34(+) cells in whole nucleated cells as low as 0.05% - 0.1% can be detected effectively using this method when 10(5) nucleated cells were counted. At day 5 or day 6, the level of CD34(+) cells in most samples of patients reached a peak volume, some of samples and the levels were more than one percent in. It was concluded that CD34(+) cells can be effectively determined by using this method. According to the relative rate of CD34(+) cells, the time to harvest the stem cells in blood can be determined.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: Interleukin 18 (IL-18) is a strong activator of NK cells and promotes the generation of IL-2, IFN-γ and GM-CSF. In the present study, we constructed adenovirus encoding IL-18 gene (AdIL-18), and observed the biological characteristics of IL-18 gene-modified murine colorectal adenocarcinoma cell (CT26)in vivo andin vitro. Methods: Gene modification was mediated by adenovirus. The proliferation of the cells was determined by MTT and IL-18 was assayed by ELISA. The cytotoxicity of NK and CTL was detected by four-hour51Cr release assay. Results: IL-18 gene modification had no effect on the proliferation and morphology of CT-26 cellsin vitro, but the growth of IL-18-modified CT26 cells was obviously inhibitedin vivo. In addition, although IL-18-modified CT26 cells could form tumor nodulesin vivo as well as LacZ-modified CT26 cells or wild-type CT26 cells, the mean survival time of the mice inoculated with IL-18-modified CT26 cells was significantly prolonged as compared with that of control groups. Thus, the anti-tumor immune responses were induced in the group of mice inoculated with IL-18-modified CT26 cells, which might be related to the activation of NK cells and CTL. However, all the three groups ultimately died of tumor. Conclusion: IL-18-modified CT26 cells could induce the anti-tumor immune responses incompletely, which required other factors for effective anti-tumor responses.

    ABSTRACT: To elucidate the role of fetal bone marrow stromal cells (FBMSC) in cooperation with exogenous cytokines in supporting the in vitro expansion of cord blood CD34(+) cells which were purified by negative immunomagnetic selection, FBMSCs were cultured with different combinations of cytokines including SCF, IL-3, IL-6, FL, G-CSF and EPO in a 14-day liquid culture system. The results showed FBMSC plus SCF, IL-3, IL-6, FL and EPO was the most effective combination which increased total nucleated cells, CFU-GM, BFU-E and CD34(+) cells by (692.4 +/- 52.7) fold, (237.1 +/- 106.6) fold, (114.8 +/- 32.8) fold and (25.3 +/- 10.1) fold, respectively. Our studies indicated that fetal bone marrow stromal cells combined with above-mentioned cytokines can efficiently expand cord blood CD34(+) cells.
