A research team headed by Professor Tsvee Lapidot of Israel’s Weizmann Institute’s immunology Department has discovered that the body’s precious stem cells – special bodies which can morph into many different types in order to provide vital services to the body in cases of need – have a little help in the immune system.

According to the paper, reported on by Israel21c, stem cells have backup from a sub-group of activated immune cells whose sole purpose is to defend them.

While the presence of mesenchymal cells – cells which provide support to stem cells in order to keep them healthy and strong – was already known, Dr. Lapidot’s team discovered that a subgroup of cells exists which prevent the differentiation of stem cells, secreting prostaglandins which preserve the youthfulness of the stem cells and prevent them from turning into anything else – also helping them survive chemotherapy or respond to infections.

Lapidot’s study further showed that introducing prostaglandin treatments can improve the quality and increase the number of the stem cells, an important discovery which may impact the strength and amount of cures to patients with leukemia.

  1. While Nina is still on West , Israeli did not stopped their preparations to move her into Russian hands. By sticking to same Japanese script that brought annihilation to 4 000 000 of my people and openly standing against God they must count with serious consequences.

    They shall be aware that in response to this transfer, Lord is ready for first time in history to deliver his Final Act in exchange for release of his fiance, even if this will mean end of state of Israel.

    Read more of consequences of this modern Pilsudski/Petlura pact, including nuclear one. Please forward broadly to Israeli and all Jewish People.

  2. What remote application to the above article does this shpiel have? Before you claim to be the spokesman for G-d, at least be able to put together a coherent paragraph. Hashem is not chaos, far from it, and without Him nothing has come into being that now exists. Apparently you chose to ride (piggyback ;-)) on this legitimate piece of journalism, because no one wants to listen to your muttering cant.
