I have just had my presentation on bone marrow transplantation for students. It includes some new things compared to the presentation from last year. The presentation is available to download here.
I was very happy to be invited to Bioinnovation Summit in Gdańs (http://www.bioinnovation.pl/) where I talked about the stem cells. The presentation can be downloaded here.
The new trial in Spain – probably one of the many. Basing on the success of the “Berlin patient” – a man infected with HIV who got bone marrow transplantation without CCR5 receptor and got cured of HIV – there is a number of clinical trials that try to target this idea. One of them uses cord blood from public bank – the donors without CCR5 are used and natural potential of the cord blood which needs to be specific just in 4 out of 6 HLA alleles for successful transplant.

I have just prepared short presentation on news in cord blood transplantation. There are some developments I find very exciting. The presentation can be downloaded here:2016 Namnażanie krwi pępowinowej
Very interesting report has been published recently by Reitzel RA and colleagues. They show use of catheter lock solution which is able to eradicate the biofilm formed by bacterias on CVC.
An interesting paper by Somani MP et al. can be found here. HSCT far more likely to be relevantly clinically active in MS than other drugs.
Very interesting study has been published recently. It is a meta analysis that shows that transparent polyurethane dressing might be inferior to gause dressing when it comes to the prevention of CVC infections.
