NCI Drug Dictionary

  

human myeloid progenitor cells CLT-008 
Early- to late-stage myeloid progenitor cells derived from adult human stem cells with potential hematopoietic activity. Upon infusion, human myeloid progenitor cells CLT-008 proliferate into mature myeloid cells, including granulocytes, macrophages, platelets, and erythrocytes. These myeloid progenitor cells die within forty-five days after a burst of hematopoiesis. This agent cannot create lymphoid cells, including T cells associated with graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
