CONTENTS:- 1. Introduction. 2. Key events in stem cell research. 3. Types of stem cells. 4. Importance and application of stem cells. 5. Controversies surrounding stem cell research. 6. Stem cell therapies. 7. Stem cell banks.
Modern biotechanology is making a great contribution to medicine, both in diagnosis of diseases and in the development of pharmaceutical products for disease therapy. Research on stem cells helps to improve our present knowledge about how an organism develops from a single cell and how an organism develops from a single cell and how the healthy cells can replace the damaged cells in adults.
Present book “Stem Cell Technology” is intended for anyone who wishes to learn more about the biological properties of stem cells that are the focus of scientific research, and the potential use of stem cells in research and in treating diseases. The chapters includes information about stem cells derived from the embryo and adult. Topics covered in the book includes information viz. How many kinds of stem cells exist and in which tissue to they exist? What are the sources of stem cells in the body? What are the unique prosperities of the stem cells which make them so important to treat diseases? How is it possible to manipulate stem cells to enhance their proliferation so that sufficient tissues for transplants can be produced? What are the benefits of stem cell research? and how is it going to help in treating diseases? What exactly is stem cell banking? What are the potential hazards of stem cell banking? What are the potential hazards of stem cell research? What are the controversies surrounding the stem cell research? What is the current research going in the stem cell technology and what are its future implications? Book provide latest information in the subject.
This book will definitely serve not only as an excellent reference material but also as a practical guide for the biotechnology students, teachers, research workers and medical professionals.
