We are proud to fund Dr. Wen's research on #aplasticanemia at @RIHospital:

is a potentially life-threatening bone marrow failure in which the body stops producing enough new blood cells. Marrow transplantation, antithymocyte globulin (ATG) treatment and other approaches can vary in effectiveness in approaching marrow aplasia. Extracellular vesicles are small particles released from cells that were initially thought to present cell “junk”, and later evaluated to be involved in cell-to-cell communication and affect the phenotype of target cells. In this study, we will evaluate the capacity of mesenchymal stem cell derived-extracellular vesicles (MSC-EV) to reverse aplasia in a murine model of aplastic anemia and identify the MSC-EV associated miRNA responsible for the reversal of aplastic anemia. This AA&MDSIF research grant will give us an opportunity to address novel basic mechanisms of MSC-EV healing effects and open exciting possibilities for t...
