Book Pages: 203 - Publish Date: 2007 - Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group
Description: Provides a synopsis of the scientific, ethical, and legal issues that surround stem cell research.
Book Pages: 116 - Publish Date: 2011-07-01 - Publisher: JP Medical Ltd
Description: Beginning with a basic introduction to the field, this book provides a comprehensive review of the properties and potential uses of stem cells, including stem cells in tissue engineering, cancer, gene therapy and in dental tissues. Stem Cells compares two key types of mammalian stem cell - embryonic and adult. Different stem cell systems are discussed, as well as potential obstacles in the use of human stem cells.
Book Pages: 414 - Publish Date: 2006-01-31 - Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Description: This hugely important volume presents in a single text many novel aspects of stem cell biology with respect to scientific endeavors and future applications. During the past few years, stem cell research has metamorphosed into distinct and specialized avenues of research. What makes this book unique is that it not only covers these varied areas of research, but examines in detail some of the key pharmacological issues that up to now have not been addressed in a single volume.
Book Pages: 377 - Publish Date: 2012 - Publisher: World Scientific
Description: Fast-moving and ever-changing, stem cell science and research presents ongoing ethical and legal challenges in many countries. Each development and innovation throws up new challenges. This is the case even where new developments initially seem to solve old dilemmas. Sometimes it becomes evident that new science does not in fact solve old problems and, for that reason, the ethical issues remain. I...
Author(s): Jonathan Slack
Book Pages: 130 - Publish Date: 2012-02-23 - Publisher: Oxford University Press
Description: There is much public interest in stem cells, but also much confusion and misinformation. Developmental biologist Jonathan Slack explains the biology behind stem cells - what they are what scientists do with them, what stem cell therapies are available today, and what can be expected to happen in the future.
Author(s): C. Potten
Book Pages: 474 - Publish Date: 1996-10-09 - Publisher: Elsevier
Description: Stem cells are relatively undifferentiated cells which are the permanent lineage ancestor cells of tissues. Newly developed molecular biological techniques and probes have made possible dramatic advances in our ability to study the lineage development of stem cells. A major impetus to develop these techniques has been to identify specific stem cells for gene therapy purposes. The role that stem ce...
Book Pages: 688 - Publish Date: 2011 - Publisher: World Scientific
Description: Stem cell biology has drawn tremendous interest in recent years as it promises cures for a variety of incurable diseases. This book deals with the basic and clinical aspects of stem cell research and involves work on the full spectrum of stem cells isolated today. It also covers the conversion of stem cell types into a variety of useful tissues which may be used in the future for transplantation t...
Author(s): Robert A. Meyers
Book Pages: 778 - Publish Date: 2013-06-03 - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Description: This third in the Current Topics in Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine Series contains a careful selection of new and updated, high-quality articles from the well-known Meyer's Encyclopedia, describing new perspectives in stem cell research. The 26 chapters are divided into four sections: Basic Biology, Stem Cells and Disease, Stem Cell Therapy Approaches, and Laboratory Methods, with the authors chosen from among the leaders in their respective fields. This volume represents an essential guide for students and researchers seeking an overview of the field.
Book Pages: 601 - Publish Date: 2009-03-04 - Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Description: Stem cells appear to be fundamental cellular units associated with the origin of multicellular organisms and have evolved to function in safeguarding the cellular homeostasis in organ t- sues. The characteristics of stem cells that distinguish them from other cells have been the fascinating subjects of stem cell research. The important properties of stem cells, such as ma- tenance of quiescence, s...
Book Pages: 226 - Publish Date: 2011-01-11 - Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Description: Stem cells have been gaining a lot of attention in recent years. Their unique potential to self-renew and differentiate has turned them into an attractive model for the study of basic biological questions such as cell division, replication, transcription, cell fate decisions, and more. With embryonic stem (ES) cells that can generate each cell type in the mammalian body and adult stem cells that a...
