Hematopoietic Stem Cell Mobilization for Gene Therapy: The Combination of G-CSF+Plerixafor in Patients with Beta-Thalassemia Major Provides High Yields of CD34+ Cells with Primitive Signatures

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

Hematopoietic stem cell engineering is a promising therapy to cure b-thalassemia, in particular for patients who lack a suitable BM donor for allogeneic transplantation. Since the engrafted gene-corrected stem cells will not have any selective advantage over the unmodified ones, the effectiveness of the therapy in this setting largely depends on the infusion of high numbers of gene-modified cells and on the conditioning regimen. The quality of the infused cells is also crucial for the clinical outcome and the duration of the therapeutic effect
