Editors: Greer, Erik V.
Book Description:
Among the many applications of stem cell research are nervous system diseases, diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune diseases as well as Parkinsonís disease, end-stage kidney disease, liver failure, cancer, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsonís disease, and Alzheimerís disease. Stem cells are self-renewing, unspecialized cells that can give rise to multiple types all of specialized cells of the body. Stem cell research also involves complex ethical and legal considerations since they involve adult, fetal tissue and embryonic sources. This new book brings together leading research from throughout the world in this frontier field.
