European Union promotes research to prevent complication after transplantation of stem cells

Two Berlin research teams led by Marie-Laure Yaspo at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics and Hans Lehrach at Alacris Theranostics GmbH in Berlin are partners in the TREGeneration consortium. Their goal is to develop new strategies for the treatment of Graft versus Host Disease, a serious complication following bone marrow transplantation. A total of 6 million euros was awarded to the consortium to perform a 5-year research project comprising a set of five parallel clinical trials.

Transplantation of stem cells can save the life of patients suffering from leukemia or other blood diseases. Between 30 and 50% of patients undergoing stem...
