Formatted abstract
Anticancer cytotoxic drugs also kill normal progenitors found in rapidly regenerating tissues, resulting in prolonged hematopoietic insufficiency. Chemotherapy-induced toxicity of the nerves that regulate bone marrow niches required for regeneration of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) is involved in this insufficiency, which suggests that co-administration of neuroprotective agents may protect HSCs from the toxic effects of drugs such as cisplatin and vincristine.
