Document Detail

Erythropoietic progenitor cells from premature neonates studied using a validated serum-deprived medium. Evidence that peripheral blood BFU-E from premature neonates are increased in number and are highly dependent upon burst promoting activity for in vitro growth.

We have examined a serum-deprived culture system in order to verify that it is suitable for the study of burst forming unit erythroid (BFU-E) progenitor cells from premature neonates. Optimum growth of BFU-E from premature neonates was observed with each media constituent using the same concentration as that previously described for adult subjects. Growth of immature BFU-E from premature neonates were highly dependent upon a source of Burst Promoting Activity and mature BFU-E derived colonies emerged at day 12 compared to day 14 in adults. Our preliminary results with the validated medium suggest that premature infants have increased peripheral blood concentrations of BFU-E compared to healthy adult controls.
