New Books on Regenerative Medicine

Here is the list of new books on Regenerative Medicine. Regenerative Medicine has an enormous future potential to prevent human aging and to increase dramatically the healthy human lifespan.

The books are listed in reversed chronological order (the most recent books are listed first). To get more information about these books, just click on the titles below:

Stem Cell and Gene-Based Therapy: Frontiers in Regenerative Medicine
by Alexander Battler and Jonathan Leor (Paperback - June 6, 2007)

Book Description:
The inability of the human body to be able significantly to self repair injured organs and tissues results in a considerable medical and social problem. During the last few years there has been incredible progress, and the achievements in experimental strategies for tissue regeneration, particularly in cell transplantation and stem cell research, have led to potential treatment options for many otherwise fatal conditions. These innovations hold promise for treating or preventing end-stage organ failure; cell therapy and tissue engineering of viable grafts with the potential to grow and remodel could provide prospective new solutions to the serious problems of organ donor shortage.
Regenerative medicine ­ stem cell and gene-based therapy ­ offers a new approach for restoring function of damaged organs and tissues. Several books have been published on particular aspects of organ and/or tissue replacement but none cover the major new aspects and field of regenerative medicine. This title is therefore a timely addition to the literature. It brings together the major approaches to regenerative medicine in one text, which ensures that techniques learnt in one discipline are disseminated across other areas of medicine, allowing practitioners to gain knowledge not only of how regenerative medicine applies to their discipline directly but also how it could benefit their patients in the years to come.

New Frontiers in Regenerative Medicine
by M. Kusano and S. Shioda (Hardcover - Jan 12, 2007)

Book Description:
Rapid advances in stem cell biology have raised exciting possibilities of replacing damaged or lost tissues and cells by activation of in vitro-expanded stem cells or their progeny. This book examines many of the unresolved problems as well as future applications of regenerative medicine. Areas of focus include the nervous system and hippocampal neurogenesis, along with the functional significance of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and the production of free radicals after brain ischemia; the digestive and integumentary systems, dealing with hepatocyte transplantation, pancreatic regeneration, and skin and hair regeneration; and the cardiovascular system, with repair and remodeling of the lung and heart, and arterial remodeling with bone marrow-derived progenitor cells. In addition to animal experiments, results of research on human tissues and organs are included. Researchers in the field will find this volume an invaluable source of reference in their work.

Multiplicity Yours: Cloning, Stem Cell Research And Regenerative Medicine
by Hwa A., Dr., Ph.D. Lim (Paperback - Oct 31, 2006)

Polymers for Regenerative Medicine (Advances in Polymer Science)
by Carsten Werner (Hardcover - Aug 29, 2006)

Regenerative Biology and Medicine
by David L. Stocum (Paperback - Aug 28, 2006)

Book Description:
The purpose of the book is to bring together in one place the different facets of regenerative biology and medicine while providing the reader with an overview of the basic and clinically-oriented research that is being done. Not only does the content cover a plethora tissues and systems, it also includes information about the developmental plasticity of adult stem cells and the regeneration of appendages.
As part of its balanced presentation, Regenerative Biology and Medicine does address the biological/bioethical issues and challanges involved in the new and exciting field of regenerative biology and medicine.
*Tissues covered include skin, hair, teeth, cornea, and central neural types
*Systems presented are digestive, respiratory, urogenital, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular
*Includes amphibians as powerful research models
*Discusses appendage regeneration in amphibians and mammals
