The product of perhaps the most important research meeting in the field, this essential text outlines all the latest research in retinal degeneration. Culled from the proceedings of the International Symposium on the subject, the topics in this volume explore the etiology, cellular mechanisms, epidemiology, models and potential therapeutic measures for the blinding diseases of retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. A must-read for researchers in the field.
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Niche focuses on an individual organ, looking at the stem cells in the organ itself (if they exist), their niches, and how to use them alongside relevant methods and protocols.
This series addresses stem cells during development, homeostasis, and disease/injury of the respective organs, presenting new developments in the field, including new data on disease and clinical applications. Video content illustrates such areas as protocols, transplantation techniques, and work with mice.
- Explores not only reviews of research, but also shares methods, protocols, and transplantation techniques
- Contains video content to illustrate such areas as protocols, transplantation techniques, and work with mice
- Each volume concentrates on one organ, making this a unique publication
This concise book examines clinically relevant issues relating to the ways in which bone marrow, cord blood and apheresis products, are collected, processed and stored for the purpose of Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy. The twin aims are to offer up-to-date content covering a wide spectrum of topics and controversies and to provide practitioners in the field of transplant and cell therapy with practical, immediately applicable information from the internationally experts in the field. Each chapter focuses on a particular subject, and numerous working tables, algorithms, and figures are included. Whenever appropriate, the reader’s attention is drawn to the availability of potentially high-impact clinical trials and expert practices. The authors are all experts who have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the topics that they address. The book will appeal to clinical and laboratory personnels, residents, fellows, and faculty members responsible for the care of hematopoietic cell transplant products and patients. Its format ensures that it will also serve as a robust, engaging tool to aid vital activities in every hematology and oncology trainee’s daily work.
