Regenerative medicine - stem cell and gene-based therapy - provides a new clinical approach for restoring function of damaged organs and tissues. There has been incredible progress in experimental strategies for tissue regeneration, particularly in cell transplantation and stem cell research. These have led to potential treatment options for many otherwise fatal conditions, including end-stage organ failure. Cell therapy and tissue engineering of viable grafts could therefore provide prospective new solutions to the serious problems of organ donor shortage.
Stem Cell and Gene-Based Therapy: Frontiers in Regenerative Medicine is written by the leading figures in the field of stem cells, gene therapy and tissue engineering and covers the major approaches to regenerative medicine, ensuring that techniques learnt in one discipline are disseminated across other areas of medicine. This allows practitioners to gain knowledge not only of how regenerative medicine applies to their own discipline directly but also how it will benefit their patients in the years to come. Consequently, the multidisciplinary nature of the book appeals to students, scientists and clinicians from a wide spectrum of disciplines, including cardiology, pulmonology, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and dermatology.
