Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy (Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine)by Hossein (edt) Baharvand
Synopses & Reviews
Therapeutic applications within regenerative biomedicine has gained tremendous interest from a growing, multidisciplinary community of investigators in recent years, driven by the hope of finding cures for several diseases. Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy discusses cutting-edge science in the field of regenerative biomedicine and its therapeutic applications to various medical disorders. The chapters are written by renowned scientists in the specific fields. This will be a useful book for basic and clinical scientists, especially young investigators and stem cell biology students who are newly entering the world of stem cells research. The editors' goal is that the new knowledge and research outlined in this book will help contribute to new therapies for a wide variety of diseases that presently afflict humanity.
In addition to germ line and cord blood stem cells, this cutting-edge survey of regenerative medicine and cell therapy includes diabetes and topics such as neurological, ocular surface, skin, cardiac, musculoskeletal, liver, and gastrointestinal diseases.
This volume presents an overview of the latest advances in the field of regenerative medicine and cell therapy, spanning topics such as neurological, ocular surface, skin, cardiac, musculoskeletal, liver, and gastrointestinal diseases and diabetes, in addition to germ line and cord blood stem cells.
