Leukaemic and Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Alter Cytarabine Genotoxicity and Cytotoxicity in Favour of Disease (2019)
Journal Article
May, J., Gynn, L., Anderson, E., & Robinson, G. (2019). Leukaemic and Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Alter Cytarabine Genotoxicity and Cytotoxicity in Favour of Disease. Mutagenesis, 34(5/6), e5. https://doi.org/10.1093/mutage/gez025

Resistance to therapy remains one of the greatest challenges in the management of the blood and bone marrow (BM) disorder, acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). This study aimed to investigate how leukaemic and BM stromal cells contribute to altered chemo-s...

Influence of Bone Marrow Stromal and Leukemic Cells on Cytarabine Chemo-Toxicity in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). (2019)
Journal Article
Gynn, L. E., Anderson, E., Robinson, G. M., Wexler, S. A., Upstill-Goddard, G., Cox, C., …Morgan, R. G. (2019). Influence of Bone Marrow Stromal and Leukemic Cells on Cytarabine Chemo-Toxicity in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Blood, 134(Supplement 1), 2492. https://doi.org/10.1182/blood-2019-122891

Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are known to protect leukemic cells from drug-induced toxicity within the bone marrow (BM) niche, however, less is known about leukemic impact on supportive MSC. The nucleoside-analogue, cytarabine (Ara-C), is a front-... Read More about Influence of Bone Marrow Stromal and Leukemic Cells on Cytarabine Chemo-Toxicity in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)..

Chemotherapy-induced genotoxic damage to bone marrow cells: Long-term implications (2018)
Journal Article
May, J. E., Donaldson, C., Gynn, L., & Ruth Morse, H. (2018). Chemotherapy-induced genotoxic damage to bone marrow cells: Long-term implications. Mutagenesis, 33(3), 241-251. https://doi.org/10.1093/mutage/gey014

© The Author(s) 2018. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the UK Environmental Mutagen Society. Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) within the bone marrow (BM) are vitally important in forming the micro-environment supporting haematop...

Development of a 2D leukaemia-stroma model for analyses of chemo-toxicity protection using a novel bacterial bioluminescent biosensor (2017)
Journal Article
Gynn, L., May, J., Anderson, E., & Robinson, G. (2017). Development of a 2D leukaemia-stroma model for analyses of chemo-toxicity protection using a novel bacterial bioluminescent biosensor. Mutagenesis, 32(6), 619. https://doi.org/10.1093/mutage/gex033

This study aimed to develop a 2D leukaemia-stroma model of the bone marrow for analysis of stromal-mediated chemo-protection; known to contribute to chemotherapy resistance. The model must facilitate integration of a bioluminescent biosensor HA1 for...
