About these proceedings

Introduction

The first International Symposium on Primo Vascular System 2010 (ISPS 2010) with special topics on cancer and regeneration was held in Jecheon, Korea during September 17-18, 2010. The symposium dealt with the past findings, current status, and future prospect of the PVS research in the context of cutting-edge investigation in oriental and occidental medicine, molecular biology, and biophysics. This proceedings volume explores the first international opportunity to exchange the research results on PVS among multi-disciplinary experts.

New study results have better revealed the functional aspects of PVS, including its roles in the areas of regenerative medicine and cancer. These research results have also suggested the extensive roles of PVS in humans, potentially changing the entire paradigm of medicine. <i>The Primo Vascular System</i> is a timely volume that will help accelerate many disciplines as it delves into this newly researched system.
