An Essential Guide to Cardiac Cell Therapy

Overview

Sparked by a new understanding that the development of tissues is not restricted to the embryonic phase of development and thus that regeneration of tissues can occur in adults, the emerging field of stem cell therapy has grown exponentially in the last several years. Crucially, the research and findings associated with stem cell research overlap into many other areas, such as basic cell biology, molecular biology and hematology, and the proliferation of clinical studies involving stem cell research is gradually ...

Overview

Sparked by a new understanding that the development of tissues is not restricted to the embryonic phase of development and thus that regeneration of tissues can occur in adults, the emerging field of stem cell therapy has grown exponentially in the last several years. Crucially, the research and findings associated with stem cell research overlap into many other areas, such as basic cell biology, molecular biology and hematology, and the proliferation of clinical studies involving stem cell research is gradually crossing over into the practice of medicine as many patients may become candidates for such novel treatments. As a response to this, Guide to Cardiac Cell Therapy is a comprehensive but understandable resource that makes this exciting field accessible to clinical practitioners. Bridging the gap between basic science and practice, it is a useful introduction to the area as well as a cutting-edge update of the developments in stem cell therapy as applied to cardiovascular disease.
