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: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
