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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
