All 12 patients had reconstitution of their immune systems and renewed blood formation, and 10 of the 12 patients had blood formation derived solely from the dmPGE2-treated umbilical cord blood unit.
Neumann and Bizzozero, both contemporaries of Osler, are credited with making the initial observations leading to the recognition of the marrow as the seat of blood formation.
The present work intends to demonstrate the physiologic importance of the bone marrow and that it is an important organ for blood formation which has not been recognized.
Bizzozero also concluded that the marrow was the site not only of blood formation but also of blood destruction, based on the erroneous assumption that large cells containing pigment granules were scavenger cells containing red cell debris.
The researchers showed that shear stress - the frictional force of fluid flow on the surface of cells lining the embryonic aorta - increases the expression of master regulators of blood formation, including Runx1, and of genetic markers found in blood stem cells.
This showed that biomechanical forces promote blood formation.
The research team of Emanuel Necas and Ludek Sefc, which is from the Institute of Pathological Physiology of the 1st Medicine Faculty at Prague's Charles University, have discovered that stem cells from bone marrow, which are essential for blood formation, can be successfully transplanted even several hours after the donor's death.

Zon's research has already been rapidly translated from the laboratory to the clinic: studies on blood formation in the zebrafish -- a model organism pioneered by the Zon lab -- led to the discovery of a drug that expands blood stem cells, which is now being tested in patients undergoing umbilical cord blood transplants.
