High-level multilineage engraftment of human cord blood cells in SCID mice

J Hematother. 1993 Summer;2(2):215-6. doi: 10.1089/scd.1.1993.2.215.


Cord blood is increasingly used as an alternative to bone marrow transplantation in pediatric patients. Therefore, to study cord blood-derived hematopoiesis in vivo we are developing a xenogeneic transplantation model using immunodeficient SCID mice.
