Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine : Volume VI - Molecular & Cellular Mechanisms Hardback
Stem cells are the building blocks of the body. They can develop into any of the cells that make up our bodies.
Stem cells carry a lot of hope for the treatment of a broad range of diseases and injuries, spanning from cancers, diabetes, genetic diseases, graft-versus-host disease, eye, heart and liver diseases, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, to neurological diseases and injuries, particularly neurodegenerative diseases, like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, cerebral strokes, and traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
Stem cell research is therefore as important for understanding the Physio- and pathology of the body as for development and therapy as well as for understanding the nervous system.
This book provides an overview and in depth analysis of recent developments in stem cell research and therapy.
