About this book

Recent years have seen ever increasing interest in the discovery of adult stem cells and the elucidation of their properties. During this time, much basic research has been carried out, with the results now clearly holding high promise for regenerative medicine. In Adult Stem Cells, a worldwide cohort of distinguished investigators critically reviews these many studies to produce a state-of-the-art understanding of adult stem cell types and their regulation. These authors examine the derivation, characterization, and utility of adult stem cells found in skeletal muscle, dental pulp, prostate, kidney, the eye, inner ear, and other tissues. They pay special attention to adult stem cell plasticity and their utility in normal tissue homeostasis, as well as their applications in regenerative medicine. Detailed discussions allow ready comparisons among the models and approaches used for each tissue and cell type covered.
Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, Adult Stem Cells not only illuminates for both experienced and novice investigators the nature, culture, and potentiality of adult stem cells, but also enhances productive exploration of their rapidly growing applications in regenerative medicine.

Reviews

"This beautiful, hardcover book features glossy pages, exquisite color plates, and expert technical writing. Chapters include informative line drawings, photomicrographs, and an extensive bibliography. The diversity of topics will certainly capture the attention of a wide audience of readers. The book is compact and very readable. I enjoyed this book, and was surprised by the attention focused on different types of adult stem cells. The topic is timely. This book hopefully will be a stimulus for new researchers to enter the field. " - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"This book contains an extensive review of liver stem cell research, including experimentation with extrahepatic tissue and sites. I would highly recommend this book for medical libraries as well as academic libraries at institutions with graduate programs in genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, neuroscience or molecular biology." -E-STREAMS
