Mobilized autologous or allogeneic hematopoietic progenitor cells are currently the preferential source for transplantation in the treatment of a variety of malignant and non-malignant diseases. In spite of the widespread clinical use of these peripheral blood stem cells the mechanisms underlying mobilization are still largely unknown.
