Renowned regenerative and restorative sports medicine doctor Guarav Goswami, M.D. provides advanced minimally invasive (non-surgical) treatments to help his patients get back to peak performance levels – no matter their age. Harnessing the transformative power of stem cells is central to his expertise. In fact, stem cell therapy is proven to be effective in the treatment of many common conditions from arthritis and back pain to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and cancer. This book is an accessible and informative introduction to the amazing powers of stem cell therapy — the biggest revolution in medicine since the discovery of penicillin, and a wave of the future. Co-authored by bestselling author and popular keynote speaker Kerry Johnson, THE STEM CELL CURE provides specific ways for readers to boost their health and vitality for a lifetime by recovering, regenerating, and repairing injuries and disease. The 150+ year lifespan of our ancient ancestors can be achieved once again by harnessing the power of our own cells with THE STEM CELL CURE.
This authoritative reference examines in depth the myriad challenges facing pediatric cancer survivors and proposes a robust framework for structured follow-up of these patients through adulthood. Approaches to long-term follow-up include both established models of care and targeted models of lifelong surveillance of late effects by bodily systems and neurological outcomes. Sections devoted to quality of life and re-entry after treatment focus on key concerns such as health risk behaviors, school and career issues, psychological challenges, and care disparities. And a robust resources section adds extra usefulness to the expert coverage.
Among the Handbook’s topics:
• Developmental considerations in the transition from child and adolescent to adult survivorship.
• Long-term follow-up roadmaps by disease and treatment.
• Neuropsychological effects of pediatric brain tumors and associated treatment.
• Building resiliency in childhood cancer survivors: a clinician’s perspective.
• School issues and educational strategies for survivors of childhood cancer.
• Educating and preparing the childhood cancer survivor for long-term care: a curriculum model for cancer centers.
A work of rare scope, scholarship, and clinical acumen, the Handbook of Long-Term Care of the Childhood Cancer Survivor is a rewarding, practice-building resource essential to a wide range of healing professionals, including primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, nurses, psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychologists, and licensed therapists.
Neural Stem Cells and Adult Neurogenesis provides graduate students and neuroscientists with a basic understanding of what neural stem cells are and the cell types they produce. This early graduate level reference describes their physiology and potential for medicine and provides students with fundamental stem cell information. An overview of stem cell sources in the human body and a brief mention of relevant diseases provide context for the value of this knowledge. The book also includes chapters on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), the methods used to obtain them, and a review of the ethical challenges associated with stem cell research.
For each region, the book provides a description of its neurogenic niche, cellular and molecular biology, and information on the neurons’ contribution to normal and diseased brain function. The level of information is appropriate for early graduate students, introducing technology and molecular biology in an accessible format.
- Provides a basic understanding of what a stem cell is, the different types, and their potential in health and research
- Details adult neurogenesis and its role in behavior, stroke and disease
- Includes walkthrough and technology boxes that illustrate experimental concepts, new approaches and techniques
