First developed as an accessible abridgement of the successful Handbook of Stem Cells, Essentials of Stem Cell Biology serves the needs of the evolving population of scientists, researchers, practitioners, and students embracing the latest advances in stem cells. Representing the combined effort of 7 editors and more than 200 scholars and scientists whose pioneering work has defined our understanding of stem cells, this book combines the prerequisites for a general understanding of adult and embryonic stem cells with a presentation by the world's experts of the latest research information about specific organ systems. From basic biology/mechanisms, early development, ectoderm, mesoderm, endoderm, and methods to the application of stem cells to specific human diseases, regulation and ethics, and patient perspectives, no topic in the field of stem cells is left uncovered. Contributions by Nobel Laureates and leading international investigators Includes two entirely new chapters devoted exclusively to induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells written by the scientists who made the breakthrough Edited by a world-renowned author and researcher to present a complete story of stem cells in research, in application, and as the subject of political debate Presented in full color with a glossary, highlighted terms, and bibliographic entries replacing references

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can divide to reproduce themselves. This book on stem cell biology discusses the application of the stem cells for various purposes such as tissue regeneration, limb/organ transplantation, blood generation, etc. Stem cell therapy and bone marrow transplantation are two effective treatments that harvest stem cells from particular areas. Diabetes, heart disease and spinal cord injury are major diseases that are treated through stem cells. This book is a complete source of knowledge on the present status of this important field. For all readers who are interested in stem cell biology, the case studies included in this book will serve as excellent guide to develop a comprehensive understanding.

This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex theories and principles in the field of stem cell. It talks in detail about the various methods and applications of stem cell in our bodies. Stem cells refer to the undifferentiated biological cells present in multicellular organisms. These cells through mitosis can divide to produce many more stem cells. The text will give thorough insights into this subject area. The topics like embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells will be discussed in detail in the text. As this field is emerging at a rapid pace, the contents of the book will help the readers understand the modern concepts and applications of this subject.
