Introduction In the recent years, our studies have demonstrated that T cells were hyperfunctional in patients with acquired aplastic anemia (AA). The excessive apoptosis of hematopoietic stem cells caused by cytotoxic T cells and/or lymphokines is the main pathogenesis of acquired AA. Up to now, acquired AA has been recognized by some scholars as an autoimmune disease with bone marrow (BM) as target organ attacked by the activated T lymphocytes. Therefore, immunosuppressive therapy (IST) has become the best choice for the treatment of acquired AA if there is no

Introduction Anaemia is a common nutritional deficiency disorder and global public health problem in both developing and developed countries with major socio-economic consequences. Anemia has attained epidemic proportions worldwide with about two billion patients estimated to suffer from anaemia worldwide and it is reported to account for three quarters of one million deaths a year in Africa and South-East Asia [ 1 ]. Anaemia can be defined as the reduction in the number of circulating erythrocytes or haemoglobin concentration (Hb) or both below the normal values
