Recent advances in the fields of medicine and technology have led to the development of stem cell therapy. A stem cell is a cell that has the potential to develop into many different types of cell in the body. It has the ability to divide and copy itself and at least one other specialized type of cell. Stem Cells was written to provide information about the development of stem cell therapy, which can be used in the fields of research and medicine. The main goal of the book is to provide readers with an overview of the scientific facts about stem cells and its promising effects on the human body, as well as on the creation of new drugs and medicines. The book also highlights the ongoing clinical research into stem cells and lists the therapies whose effectiveness is being investigated. Many scientists argue that stem cell therapy will be of great help to patients and society if it is proven to be safe and effective. Explains in straightforward, non-specialist language the basic biology of stem cells and their applications in modern medicine and future therapy Includes extensive coverage of adult and embryonic stem cells both historically and in contemporary practice Richly illustrated to assist in understanding how research is done and the current hurdles to clinical practice

Die Verwendung von Stammzellen, iPS-Zellen sowie der Einsatz gentechnischer Methoden wie dem Genome Editing stellen für die Regenerative Medizin prinzipiell Möglichkeiten für die Entwicklung neuer Therapien dar. Die Umsetzung solcher Therapien wirft nicht nur naturwissenschaftlich-technische und medizinische Fragen auf, sondern auch ethische, rechtliche, soziale und ökonomische. Die erfolgreiche Realisierung regenerativmedizinischer Therapien ist daher auf eine disziplinübergreifende Herangehensweise angewiesen. Im Rahmen eines interdisziplinären und internationalen Symposiums sowie einer BMBF-Klausurwoche wurden die Aspekte der Verwendung von Stammzellen, iPS-Zellen sowie des Genome Editings diskutiert. Im Mittelpunkt standen u.a. die arzneimittelrechtliche Handhabung, verfassungsrechtliche und philosophische Fragen in Bezug auf die Kommerzialisierbarkeit menschlicher Körpersubstanzen sowie patentrechtliche Fragen im Umgang mit menschlichen Stammzellen und der Verfahren des Genome Editings. Mit Beiträgen von Insa S.

Stem Cell Research takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the topic of human embryonic stem cell research, starting with the breakthrough discovery up through the present day controversy. The book invites the reader to join the conversation by providing a well balanced approach to many of the issues surrounding the development of this controversial scientific field. It includes the thoughts and experiences of scientists, journalists and ethicists as it tried to approach the topic through a variety of different academic disciplines. The book will help the non-scientist understand the biology, research regulations and funding; and simultaneously it will help the scientist better comprehend the full spectrum of ethical, religious, and policy debates.

Only a few decades ago, we didnt even know that stem cells existed, though today we have gained the knowledge and technology to make practically any type of cell from a mature skin cell. Dr. Farrukh Hamid, who has been practicing regenerative and rehabilitative medicine for two decades, traces the scientific breakthroughs that led us to this point and what rapid developments in stem cell research mean for those that suffer from an incurable disease or chronic illness. In an engaging, storytelling fashion, Hamid focuses on: breakthroughs that have enabled us to create new disease cell lines, reprogram cells, and fill in knowledge gaps that existed just a few short years ago. ways to protect your stem cells from political and pharmaceutical mongers; strategies to enhance your stem cell count. alternative treatment options for debilitating diseases and illnesses. Filled with patient histories and personal stories, the insights on stem cells and the critical role they play will entertain, educate, and encourage you to be healthier and wiser about your health.

Stem cell technology is moving forward at a tremendous rate. Recent discoveries have surprised even the most expert researchers. While every piece of new data broadens the current knowledge and contributes to this moving forward, the new data also serve as paradigm shifters of fundamental knowledge of cell biology. While the question ‘What is a Stem Cell’ may now seem to basic to even discuss, there are still some discrepancies, however, between groups in terms of their functional roles. Teeth develop from the ectoderm of the first branchial arch and the ectomesenchyme of the neural crest. Deciduous teeth start to form between the sixth and eighth weeks, and permanent teeth begin to form in the twentieth weeks. Several studies have demonstrated that the pulp from both adult teeth and deciduous teeth contains dental pulp stem cells. Several factors have made them very attractive as a model system for many researchers; they are multipotent, ethically and non-controversially available in large numbers, immuno-compatible, developmentally primitive, easy to isolate and have high expansion potential in vitro. However, many controversies still exist in the field. There are several unanswered questions in the biology of dental pulp and odontoblasts. This new volume in the SpringerBriefs in Stem Cells series presents an evaluation of stem cells from human dental pulp as a reliable stem cell source for cell-based therapy to stimulate tissue regeneration.​
