Stem cell transplantation prevents autoimmune diabetes

Bone marrow or hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation have recently been used to treat clinically severe autoimmune disease, however they are associated with a high risk of graft rejection or graft-versus-host disease. In contrast, Leonard Harrison and colleagues at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia demonstrate that syngeneic transplantation of HSCs does not provoke a host immune response and is capable of preventing autoimmune diabetes in mice.

Rare reversion of mutation provides a basis for natural gene therapy

A rare inherited disorder known as Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) results from a mutation in the WAS protein. Two brothers have been identified that carry a second mutation in this protein, which restored protein function in a fraction of their T cells. Understanding the mechanisms underlying this natural form of gene therapy will be of great importance for developing new therapeutic strategies for genetic disorders.
