A medication used to treat joint and skin conditions might also help people whose only hope of surviving cancer is receiving stem cells from a donor, according to research by a University of British Columbia scientist. Transplants of blood stem cells, which can differentiate into all types of blood cells, can be a cure for life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia or lymphoma. But the treatment is often not pursued, because typical donations a often from umbilical cord blood a are unlikely to take root in a patienta s bone marrow and grow into a self-sustaining, blood-forming system. Researchers at UBC and [...]
