Protein produced in gut could stave off deadly bone marrow transplant complication

Researchers at Mount Sinai have discovered that an antimicrobial protein found in the gut can stave off a common and highly lethal side effect of bone marrow transplants, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation in September. The protein, regenerating islet-derived 3-alpha (REG3α), is made by cells in the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. It plays a role in a complication of called graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD), in which the donated bone marrow's attack the patient's gastrointestinal tract. This study shows that GVHD causes increased serum levels of REG3α throughout the body while, paradoxically, decreasing the production of...

Surgeons implanted the electrode below the level of 29-year-old Jered Chinnock's spinal cord injury. A 2013 snowmobile crash left Chinnock with complete loss of motor control and sensation below the middle of his back. But after the new therapy, he "was able to regain voluntary control of the movement in his legs," said co-principal investigator Dr. Kendall Lee, a neurosurgeon...
