About this book

This book discusses the two different cellular approaches that are pursued in regenerative medicine: cell therapy and tissue engineering. It examines in detail the therapeutic application of hematopoietic stem cells in marrow regeneration, multi-potent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), also referred to as mesenchymal stromal cells. The interest in MSCs can be seen in more than 150 clinical trials, some of which have progressed to Phase III, despite the cells’ limited differentiation potential. The book also explores how embryonic stem (ES) cells, being pluripotent in nature, can resolve some of the problems associated with adult stem cells, yet entail other challenges like risks of teratoma formation and immune rejection. A separate chapter deals with the role of noncoding RNAs in neuronal commitment of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.

Chapters like “Cord blood banking in India and the global scenario”; “3D bioprinting of tissue” and others will make this book an extremely interesting read for all students, researchers and clinicians working in the area of regenerative medicine/stem cells.

The book is broadly divided into two parts, the first of which is devoted to basic information on stem cells, and the second of which addresses potential clinical applications in the areas of hematology, cardiology, orthopedic and immune suppression, etc.

About the authors

Dr. Asok Mukhopadhyay has just retired from the very prestigious National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi after more than 25 years of service as a Scientist & Principle Investigator. He received his PhD from the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi and worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA. His main area of research is stem cells in regenerative medicine. He has published 75 research papers, contributed to 7 book chapters and has also written the textbook “Animal Cell Technology” [Published by IK International, New Delhi; ISBN: 978-81-89866-96-9 (2009)]. Further, he holds 2 Indian patents.

Dr. Mukhopadhyay is a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of several leading Indian institutions, as well as the Task Force on ‘Stem Cells Research and Regenerative Medicine’- Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. He also serves as a reviewer for various reputed journals such as Tissue Engineering, World Journal of Stem Cell Research, Biotechnology & Bioengineering, and Stem cells and Development.
