Embryonic stem cells have been hot-button topics in recent years, generating intense public interest as well as much confusion and misinformation. In this Very Short Introduction, leading authority Jonathan Slack offers a clear and informative overview of stem cells–what they are, what scientists do with them, what stem cell therapies are available today, and how they might be used in the future. Slack explains the difference between embryonic stem cells, which exist only in laboratory cultures, and tissue-specific stem cells, which exist in our bodies, and he discusses how embryonic stem cells may be used in the future to treat such illnesses as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, spinal trauma, and retinal degeneration. But he stresses that, despite important advances, the clinical applications of stem cells are still in their infancy and that most real stem cell therapy today is some form of bone marrow transplantation. Slack concludes by analyzing how medical innovation has occurred in this area in recent years and he draws out some of the lessons for the development of new therapies in the future.
Stem Cells: An Insider’s Guide is an exciting new book that takes readers inside the world of stem cells guided by international stem cell expert, Dr. Paul Knoepfler. Stem cells are catalyzing a revolution in medicine. The book also tackles the exciting and hotly debated area of stem cell treatments that are capturing the public’s imagination. In the future they may also transform how we age and reproduce. However, there are serious risks and ethical challenges, too. The author’s goal with this insider’s guide is to give readers the information needed to distinguish between the ubiquitous hype and legitimate hope found throughout the stem cell world. The book answers the most common questions that people have about stem cells. Can stem cells help my family with a serious medical problem such as Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, or Autism? Are such treatments safe? Can stem cells make me look younger or even literally stay physically young? These questions and many more are answered here.
A number of ethical issues related to stem cells that spark debates are discussed, including risky treatments, cloning and embryonic stem cells. The author breaks new ground in a number of ways such as by suggesting reforms to the FDA, providing a new theory of aging based on stem cells, and including a revolutionary Stem Cell Patient Bill of Rights. More generally, the book is your guide to where the stem cell field will be in the near future as well as a thoughtful perspective on how stem cell therapies will ultimately change your life and our world.
Readership: Undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in cell and molecular biology and stem cell research; medical students; interested lay readers.
Stem Cell Worx is a natural dietary health supplement that is sprayed under the tongue (enabling 95% of its nutrients to be immediately absorbed). Stem Cell Worx activates your own adult stem cells naturally and provides robust immunity. With 50 to 70 trillion cells in our body cellular health is crucial to our overall well being and good health.

Most powerful stem cell supplement available, sold by leading Anti-Aging & Regenerative Clinics and Specialized Compounding Pharmacies in the U.S.A including the Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills. All PRODUCT CLAIMS ARE BACKED BY INDEPENDENT clinical studies and science. Independent clinical testing has been carried out by Scientists and Bio-Chemists on the Stem Cell Worx formulation. The study used blood samples from healthy humans. The adult mesenchymal stem cells increased by up to 80% within two weeks of the participants taking the Stem Cell Worx supplement. Information on this clinical test and other independent studies can be found on the home page (right hand column) of the stemcellworx website. MANUFACTURED IN THE USA in a state of the art GMP registered Laboratory
- SUBLINGUAL APPLICATION (sprayed under the tongue) providing a 95% absorption rate of nutrients. Pills and capsules provide only a 10% to 20% absorption rate of nutrients.
- THIS SUPPLEMENT PROVIDES KEY FUNDAMENTALS by activating one’s own adult stem cells naturally, that are scientifically proven to the very essence of life and good health. These are cellular rejuvenation and immune response. As we age our immune system weakens and our ability to absorb nutrients through our gastrointestinal tract reduces. This supplement is specifically designed to combat these challenges. Each bottle contains a 40 day supply.
- STEM CELL WORX contains the highest grade of natural, pure ingredients and has the greatest number of natural immune factors compared to any other product on the market. All product claims are backed by independent clinical studies.
- TIME TAKES ITS TOLL on our own adult stem cells, which decline as we age. It is important we keep them activated. Adult stem cells are our master cells of the body that have the ability to maintain, self-renew and repair cells, tissue and muscle throughout our entire life time.
- HAVING YOUR OWN ADULT STEM CELLS working at optimal levels provides the platform for many cumulative health benefits. BENEFITS INCLUDE much improved energy, super charges the immune system, supports anti-inflammatory relief, eases constipation and reduces bloating, provides rapid repair and recovery after illness, injury and surgery.
