Overview

Due to its efficacy in animal models, cellular therapy using human hepatocytes is being evaluated worldwide as an alternative to organ transplantation in patients with liver-based metabolic disease and acute liver failure. In Hepatocyte Transplantation: Methods and Protocols, an international panel of experts provide up-to-date laboratory and clinical techniques covering the many key areas necessary for successful transplantation, such as cryopreservation, quality assurance, detection of cell engraftment, and the future of the field with the development of foetal hepatoblasts and stem cell derived hepatocytes. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters in this volume present brief introductions to the material, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, readily reproducible, step-by-step laboratory protocols, and Notes sections which highlight tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Hepatocyte Transplantation: Methods and Protocols is an ideal guide for researchers setting out in the rapidly progressing field of hepatocyte transplantation, as well as those who already have experience with this new therapy for liver disease.
