"MDSCs are elicited by tumor-derived factors from precursors present in hematopoietic organs such as the bone marrow and possibly spleen. This population of cells suppresses the activity of various types of immune cells and contributes to tumor progression by promoting tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. But the key transcriptional regulators of MDSC are still poorly defined. Alex and colleagues used bioinformatic tools to investigate the pathway interactome maps in colon and breast cancer models. Several proliferation and invasion-related pathways were identified in infiltrating MDSC. It opens a door to new therapy targeting MDSC in these diseases. " says Qingsong Zhu, COO of InSilico Medicine, Inc. More on the study can be found here:

"I didn’t expect to ever meet my recipient, but I’m so glad we developed such a good friendship because it is wonderful to see the impact this successful transplant has had for Chris and his family."
"I believe it is very important to support and encourage those within our communities who go out of their way to help others have the gift of life. Meeting individuals like Adrian is inspiring and I'm extremely happy that Adrian has been rewarded for his own efforts and wish him continued success with the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow organisation."
