Hematopoietic Stem Cells
Hematopoietic stem cells are adult stem cells found mainly in the bone marrow and they provide the blood cells required for daily blood turnover and for fighting infections. Compared to adult stem cells from other tissues, hematopoietic stem cells are easy to obtain, as they can be either aspirated directly out of the bone marrow or stimulated to move into the peripheral blood stream, where they can be easily collected as shown by Balint et al.
