Stem Cell Transplantation for Autoimmune Diseases and Inflammation (Stem Cells in Clinical Applications)

This book introduces many new technologies and clinical applications of hematopoietic stem cells and mesenchymal stem cell transplantation for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and inflammatory diseases. Presented in two parts, Part 1 focuses on stem cell therapies for autoimmune disease treatment; Part 2 focuses on stem cell therapies and their application in the treatment of common inflammatory diseases, including chronic knee osteoarthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, liver cirrhosis, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and more. This book is an essential source for all advanced students and researchers involved with these diseases, stem cells, or both.

Stem Cell Transplantation for Autoimmune Diseases and Inflammation and the other books in the Stem Cells in Clinical Applications series are invaluable to scientists, researchers, advanced students and clinicians working in stem cells, regenerative medicine, or tissue engineering as well as cancer or genetics research.

Battle Against Multiple Myeloma: A true story by the cancer survivor

‘Battle Against Multiple Myeloma- A true story by the cancer survivor,’ is an attempt by the author to share his real life trauma and his own personal experience in battling with the dreaded disease. In this book the author covers all aspects of the disease right from the detection to treatment. A distinguishing feature of this book is the sharing of actual medical and laboratory reports of the author, which helps in the clear understanding. The author also provides extensive information on cancer prevention and ways to strengthen the immune system of the body. The immune system is the body’s own powerful self defense mechanism, which protects the body against all diseases, including cancer.

DNA Repair and Genetic Instability

DNA molecules undergo chemical reactions which may alter their structure and DNA repair is the process by which such damages are repaired. Significant damage may hinder the RNA transcription process as well as cause mutations in the DNA molecule. Cell aging, apoptosis and cancerous tumors are common outcomes of long-term damage to DNA. Cellular processes such as the stress to reactive oxygen species as well as exposure to ionizing radiation and large amounts of ultraviolet light are sources of DNA damage. This book explores all the important aspects of DNA repair in the present day scenario. Scientists and students actively engaged in this field will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.
