Stem Cells

by Eapen Cherian, G Nandhini, Anil Kurian

The subject stem cells have assumed the status of a specialty only recently. Stem cells are such as fascinating field in science with tremendous scope to dramatically change the treatment of human diseases. Every organ and tissue is made up of specialized cells that originate from a pool of stem cells. Stem cells play a vital role in regenerating organs and tissues that are injured or lost every day, such as one’s skin, hair, blood and the lining of gut. Knowledge about stem cells is central to understanding not just normal development, but also human disease and injury, and for using this knowledge to develop new therapies. This textbook provides a comprehensive and complete review of what one needs to know about stem cells. This book serves not only as a source of information to the scientific fraternity, but also to the general public.
