In general, the decrease in the number of Treg, regardless of the stage of disease, reflects an overall decline in the number of cells of bone marrow origin in the periphery and is a sign of disrupted hemopoiesis in MDS.
Several cytokine-based strategies enhancing hemopoiesis, homing, and subsequent engraftment of CB/mPB-derived HSCs have been previously described [30].

In addition, in the DMCL blue group, the 9 genes shown in Table 3 (RUNX1, FANCD2, BMPR1A, BUB1B, EPHB2, EHBP1, PDE11A, RET, and KDR) were highly activated and all of them can significantly affect embryonic hemopoiesis, transferase activities, and protein phosphorylation.
Dietary glutamine supplementation increases the activity of peritoneal macrophages and hemopoiesis in early-weaned mice inoculated with Mycobacterium bovis bacillus Calmette-Guerin.
They also have endocrine function by producing renin -angiotensin to control blood pressure and secretion of erythropoietin required for hemopoiesis. (1) They can be involved in various pathological processes.
Splenectomy should be considered in patients with poor growth and features of extramedullary hemopoiesis. It helps in decreasing the transfusion requirement by improving the Hb level.
Their main properties are the low toxicity, theability to raise immune biological defenses, stimulate hemopoiesis, make anti-stress and adaptogenic influence, regulate the inflammatory and regenerative processes, as well as antitoxic, antioxidant and membrane stabilizing properties [1,2].
miRNAs have been demonstrated to play important roles in many biological processes, such as cell cycle control, proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation, metabolism, hemopoiesis, and development [8].
Aplastic anemia (AA) is a potentially life-threatening failure of hemopoiesis characterized by pancytopenia and hypocellular bone marrow.
(12) showed that the introduction of FLT3/ITDs into a murine bone marrow (BM) transplant model resulted in a myeloproliferative phenotype characterized by leukocytosis and splenomegaly with extramedullary hemopoiesis in spleen and liver.
