Identification of new cell populations in healthy subjects and / or subjects undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).
The transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCT) consists in the infusion of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells, usually derived from bone marrow, peripheral blood or umbilical cord. HSCT is, today, an effective therapy for many patients suffering from hematologic congenital or acquired disorders, both malignant and non-malignant origin. In patients with hematologic malignancies, the main therapeutic effect of HSCT depends on the immune response, mediated by various effector cells of the immune system rebuilt, in comparisons of neoplastic cells survived the conditioning phase: this reaction effect takes the name of Graft-versus-Leukemia (GvL). The GvL is the best and most effective example of adoptive immunotherapy. The study aims to identify and characterize new populations of cells belonging of the immune system in healthy subjects exposed or not to inflammatory stimuli (eg passive smoking), and to assess the immune status of patients undergoing HSCT and so highly immunocompromised and their degree of response to treatment.
