Do magnetic impulses stimulate haemopoiesis?

17.02.2006


Research into the condition and composition of cells in the marrow and blood vessels.



The hematopoietic system always reacts keenly to external actions, especially to penetrating radiation. The number of hematopoietic cells of all types (both dividing and ripening) increased in the marrow of all irradiated mice in this experiment. The researchers do not exclude the possibility that hematopoietic cells divide more rapidly and go quicker through all development stages under the influence of magnetic impulses. The higher the magnetic radiation dose, the more active its cells divided and the more weakly differentiated the precursor cells in the marrow.

Within 24 hours after irradiation was discontinued, the number of cells being in the last stage of maturation returned back to the reference level, and the number of dividing and weakly differentiated hematopoietic cells decreased practically by twice. The researchers assumed that pulsed magnetic field exposure stimulates haemopoiesis, but stimulation stops when irradiation is ceased.


The quantity of leucocytes increased in the blood of irradiated mice, which is not surprising as the leucocyte quantity depends on the organism’s functional state. The effect becomes more apparent not immediately after irradiation, as it was in case of marrow cells, but in 24 hours. Thus, 24 hours after a weekly stay in the pulsed magnetic field, leucocyte quantity in the mice’s blood increased twofold.

The researchers emphasize that their investigation touches upon far from all aspects of pulsed magnetic field influence on blood and the haematopoietic system. Specifically, the researchers did not analyze the state of mice’s health, although the growth of leucocyte quantity is often the evidence of inflammatory diseases. The hematopoietic system’s reaction to a long-standing extreme load is unknown either. After lengthy irradiation, haemopoiesis efficiency decreased twofold, but how soon it would be restored to normal level? These and other questions are still pending.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
