The entirety of human blood, for instance, can arise from a single, highly potent blood-forming stem cell called a hematopoietic stem cell, which typically lives buried inside the bone marrow.
Bone marrow and umbilical cord blood are known to contain what are called hematopoietic blood-making stem cells.
Doctors have been using adult stem cells, such as the blood-forming type in bone marrow (called hematopoietic stem cells), to perform bone marrow transplants for over 40 years.
Several different and diverse types of leukocytes exist, but they are all produced and derived from a multipotent cell in the bone marrow known as a hematopoietic stem cell.
While varying widely in function, all blood cells share a common origin in progenitors known as hematopoietic stem cells (HSC).
These cells are called hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and are killed as a consequence of chemotherapy or radiation.
A key group of stem cells called hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) is responsible for creating all of the different blood cells the body needs to combat infections and deliver oxygen to its organs, among other essential duties.
