Translating Regenerative Medicine to the Clinicreviews the current methodological tools and experimental approaches used by leading translational researchers, discussing the uses of regenerative medicine for different disease treatment areas, including cardiovascular disease, muscle regeneration, and regeneration of the bone and skin.
Pedagogically, the book concentrates on the latest knowledge, laboratory techniques, and experimental approaches used by translational research leaders in this field. It promotes cross-disciplinary communication between the sub-specialties of medicine, but remains unified in theme by emphasizing recent innovations, critical barriers to progress, the new tools that are being used to overcome them, and specific areas of research that require additional study to advance the field as a whole.
Volumes in the series include Translating Gene Therapy to the Clinic, Translating Regenerative Medicine to the Clinic, Translating MicroRNAs to the Clinic, Translating Biomarkers to the Clinic, and Translating Epigenetics to the Clinic.Encompasses the latest innovations and tools being used to develop regenerative medicine in the lab and clinicCovers the latest knowledge, laboratory techniques, and experimental approaches used by translational research leaders in this fieldContains extensive pedagogical updates aiming to improve the education of translational researchers in this fieldProvides a transdisciplinary approach that supports cross-fertilization between different sub-specialties of medicine
In addition, the rapid advance in clinical translation and commercialization of perinatal stem cell therapies is highlighted in a section on Clinical and Industry Perspective which provides insight into the new opportunities and challenges involved in this novel and exciting industry.Explores current clinical and pre-clinical application of stem cells derived from perinatal sourcesOffers detailed insight into sources of perinatal stem cells and their potential for disease treatmentDiscusses progress in the manufacturing, banking and clinical translation of perinatal stem cellsEdited by a world-renowned team to present a complete story of the development and promise of perinatal stem cells
Perinatal Stem Cells contains thirty-two chapters written by internationally recognized leaders in stem cell research. It is organized into four sections covering amniotic fluid stem cells, placental and placental membrane stem cells, umbilical cord stem cells, and clinical translation. This cohesive structure provides an effective framework for detailed insight into this new frontier. Edited by Dr. Anthony Atala, one of the foremost experts in the field, and his co-editor Dr. Sean V. Murphy, this volume is a definitive work for stem cell research and its future implications. It is a key resource for all stem cell researchers, clinicians, and government and industry staff working in this dynamic and exciting field.
Derived from the successful Principles of Regenerative Medicine, this volume brings together the latest information on the advances in technology and medicine and the replacement of tissues and organs damaged by disease. Chapters focus on the fundamental principles of regenerative therapies that have crossover with a broad range of disciplines. From the molecular basis to therapeutic applications, this volume is an essential source for students, researchers, and technicians in tissue engineering, stem cells, nuclear transfer (therapeutic cloning), cell, tissue, and organ transplantation, nanotechnology, bioengineering, and medicine to gain a comprehensive understanding of the nature and prospects for this important field.
