Analytical Model for the Assessment of Efficiency of Stem Cell Transplantation with Suicidal Gene Construct for the Treatment of Leukemia


Probir Kumar Dhar, Tarun Kanti Naskar and Durjoy Majumder

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is now being the emergent methodology for leukemia treatment. Due to HLA mis-match, there is chance of transplantation related mortality. However, with the increase in HLA mis-match between donor cells and recipient, there is more chance of complete removal of leukemic cells in host (patient). To tackle this, recently stem cells transplantation with suicidal tk-gene construct is being suggested. Due to unavailability of suitable analytical methods this option has limited applications in clinical cases. Present work provides an analytical platform to test the efficacy of this therapeutic procedure.
