About this book

Scientists investigating germ cells have, over the past 15 years, originated discoveries and innovations that give us valuable insights into the mechanisms that regulate not just stem cell function, but human development in its widest sense. With contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field, Male Germline Stem Cells: Developmental and Regenerative Potential assesses the implications of these discoveries for understanding the fundamental biology of germline stem cells as well as their potential for human stem cell-based therapies. This monograph covers many of the fundamental issues now being explored by today’s generation of stem cell researchers, including the field’s potential for regenerative medicine. Ranging from an assessment of the pluripotency of primordial germ cells and their possible applications in treating testicular cancer, to the recovery of once-mordant fertilization-competent sperm, this volume has it all. It is a reference point for any scientist involved in related research as well as being a timely summation of what could prove to be a hugely exciting and very fruitful area of inquiry.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“It provides an in-depth review of current research and future clinical perspectives. … written for basic science and clinical researchers interested in stem cell biology, as well as those interested broadly in developmental and reproductive biology. Biomedical scientists and clinicians interested in testicular cancer and fertility/infertility also will appreciate the wealth of information and insight. … This is an outstanding contribution to the literature on mammalian germ cell biology. … will be valued by all those interested in germ cells and stem cell-based therapies.” (Bruce A. Fenderson, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2011)
