About this series
Stem Cells in Clinical Applications brings some of the field’s most renowned scientists and clinicians together with emerging talents and disseminates their cutting-edge clinical research to help shape future therapies. While each book tends to focus on regenerative medicine for a certain organ or system (e.g. liver, lung and heart; brain and spinal cord, etc.) each volume also deals with topics like the safety of stem cell transplantation, evidence for clinical applications, including effects and side effects, guidelines for clinical stem cell manipulation, and much more. Volumes will also discuss mesenchymal stem cell transplantation in autoimmune disease treatment, stem cell gene therapy in pre-clinical and clinical contexts, clinical use of stem cells in neurological degenerative disease, and best practices for manufacturers in stem cell production. Later volumes will be devoted to safety, ethics and regulations, stem cell banking, treatment of cancer, and genetic disease. This series provides insight not only into novel research in stem cells but also their clinical and real-world contexts. Each book in Stem Cells in Clinical Applications is an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers and clinicians in the stem cell, tissue engineering, biomedical engineering, and regnerative medicine fields.
