Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy for the Eye (Fundamental Biomedical Technologies)

This book provides an overview of the types, sources, and applications of stem cells in regenerating various ocular tissues, with a perspective on both potential applications of stem cells and possible challenges. The scope of the chapters include both preclinical and clinical applications, including stem cell-derived therapies based on endogenous tissue repair; stem cell transplantation  and cell replacement therapy; gene therapy; and in vitro disease modelling.  Additionally, the volume presents applications in both anterior and posterior ocular disease, with a particular focus on diseases of the ocular surface, cornea, limbus, and retina, including inherited retinal dystrophies as well as acquired diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration. Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy for the Eye is an ideal book for advanced researchers in stem cell and ocular biology as well as clinical ophthalmologists, and will be of interest to readers with backgrounds in developmental biology and bioengineering.   
This book also
  • Skillfully reviews cutting-edge advances in stem cell biology as applied to regenerative medicine and ocular disease
  • Provides expert viewpoints on key hurdles and challenges to successful implementation of stem cell-derived therapies in the clinical domain
  • Offers a multi-disciplinary, broad understanding of cell-based therapies for ocular diseases by incorporating perspectives from biomedical scientists, physicians, and engineers
  • Examines the connection between cell therapy and gene editing, in particular relation to ocular disease

Introduction to Tissue Engineering: Applications and Challenges (IEEE Press Series on Biomedical Engineering)

A comprehensive reference and teaching aid on tissue engineering—covering everything from the basics of regenerative medicine to more advanced and forward thinking topics such as the artificial liver, bladder, and trachea

Regenerative medicine/tissue engineering is the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish normal function. It is an incredibly progressive field of medicine that may, in the near future, help with the shortage of life-saving organs available through donation for transplantation.

Introduction to Tissue Engineering: Applications and Challenges makes tissue engineering more accessible to undergraduate and graduate students alike. It provides a systematic and logical eight-step process for tissue fabrication. Specific chapters have been dedicated to provide in-depth principles for many of the supporting and enabling technologies during the tissue fabrication process and include biomaterial development and synthesis, bioreactor design, and tissue vascularization. The tissue fabrication process is further illustrated with specific examples for liver, bladder, and trachea. Section-coverage includes an overall introduction of tissue engineering; enabling and supporting technologies; clinical applications; and case studies and future challenges.

Introduction to Tissue Engineering:

  • Presents medical applications of stem cells in tissue engineering
  • Deals with the effects of chemical stimulation (growth factors and hormones)
  • Covers current disease pathologies and treatment options (pacemakers, prosthesis)
  • Explains bioengineering, design and fabrication, and critical challenges during tissue fabrication
  • Offers PowerPoint slides for instructors
  • Features case studies and a section on future directions and challenges

As pioneering individuals look ahead to the possibility of generating entire organ systems, students may turn to this text for a comprehensive understanding and preparation for the future of regenerative medicine.
