Umbilical Cord and Placentary Blood Storage for the Treatment of Blood Diseases in Brazil: the Third Bone Marrow Donor Facing New Technologies

Research Article of International Journal of Stem Cell Research Umbilical Cord and Placentary Blood Storage for the Treatment of Blood Diseases in Brazil: the Third Bone Marrow Donor Facing New Technologies MONTEIRO NETO, A.U1, SILVA, G.V.M1, LIMA, D.N1, PONTES, M.G.A1, TAVARES, A.B1, ANJOS, F.B.R2. Academics of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco1, Professor of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco² Contemporary medicine has had several advances when it comes to treating diseases such as leukemia. One of these innovations was the use of human stem cells, through bone marrow transplantation, because these cells have the capacity to originate new cells when stimulated. Currently, the use of hematopoietic stem cells is performed in the treatment of more than 80 blood diseases and is the most efficient method, of which we have access, in the highlighted scenario. However, there are still several obstacles to the use of bone marrow cells, given the difficulty of compatibility between the donor and the recipient of the transplant. Due to such impediment, it was then observed that umbilical cord and placenta blood have transplantable cells, albeit in limited numbers, but are more likely to be compatible with the patient that will be receiving such cells. The present study aimed to analyze the Brazilian situation regarding the collection, processing, storage and use of this type of blood, as well as to investigate, from public access data about health, the difficulties for its greater use in the treatment of blood diseases.

Evaluation of Effects Baccharis Dracunculifolia (Green Propolis) in Embryonic Development

Research Article of International Journal of Stem Cell Research Evaluation of Effects Baccharis Dracunculifolia (Green Propolis) in Embryonic Development Silva, P.A.A1, Pedrosa, J.V.C2, Silva, W.M.V2, Santos, D.F2, Narciso, M.L3, Silva, F.F.L3, Silva, J.M.B4, Silva, E.V5, Anjos, F.B.R6. Master in Pathology of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco1, Students of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco2, Biology of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco3, Biotechnology and Bioprocess Engineer4, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco5, Professor of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco6 Propolis is a resinous substance made by bees from various plant fragments. Bees add salivary enzymes to their composition and this partially digested material is mixed with wax and used to make the beehive (MARCUCCI, 1995; BANKOVA et al., 2000). She may exhibit varied coloration, such as dark brown, greenish tones and reddish brown. A recently discovered type in Brazil is the red propolis, originating from the mangrove plant, Dalbergia ecastophyllum (SILVA et al., 2008). However, the one that has gained international prominence is the one produced from the plant Baccharis dracunculifolia (Asteraceae), the green propolis (MARCUCCI, BANKOVA, 1999). Although many studies have been carried out to evaluate the characteristics of several propolis samples, none of them confirmed or allowed any relationship between the chemical composition of propolis and its therapeutic efficacy (BANKOVA, 2005a). Due to the importance of the biological properties of green propolis, in addition to its wide use. This study aimed to add existing data on the use of propolis during pregnancy, especially warning about the possible risks of using green propolis (Baccharis dracunculifolia) during this period.
