Save the Cord Foundation and WellSky are proud to welcome Dr. John Wagner, as our featured speaker for our next edition of Share the Science on July 22nd, 2021 2pm ET / 11am PT. Join us to hear Dr. Wagner discuss his research using umbilical cord blood-derived regulatory T Cells (Tregs) to combat Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD).
Share the Science is a free webinar series focused on the cord blood industry and the latest research in this field. As always, we invite both health professionals and the general public to join us for this unique online educational series. Learn more about this exciting educational series here.
Preventing GvHD with Regulatory T Cells (Tregs)
Join us to hear pioneering researcher John Wagner, M.D. as he shares some of his latest work involving potential treatment of autoimmunity and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).
Infection and relapse are the principal obstacles to successful use of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Prolonged immunodeficiency is a major cause of infection and relapse, particularly in those with high-risk disease, older age, use of in vivo and ex vivo T cell depletion, HLA mismatch, and after the development of acute and chronic GVHD.
Trials have demonstrated that the infusion of umbilical cord blood (UCB) derived regulatory T cells (Tregs) could effectively prevent GVHD. Join Dr. Wagner as he also shares how thymic progenitor cells (Pro-Ts) can repair damaged immune systems, and how UCB can reliably provide large numbers of Pro-Ts suitable for clinical use.
