Handbook of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Management

Handbook of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Management provides an evidence-based practical guide for clinicians and practitioners who treat cancer patients with these challenging and innovative techniques. The handbook begins with chapters on autologous transplantation for myeloma and lymphoma, and allogenic transplantation for leukemia, lymphoma and myelodysplastic syndrome. Further chapters cover the standards of care for managing adverse events related to acute graft-versus-host disease, chronic graft-versus-host disease, infections of bacterial, fungal, and viral nature, lymphoproliferative disease, pulmonary complications, renal complications, treatment of cancer relapse, as well as quality of life and long-term survivorship issues. Concluding chapters address new CAR-T therapies, including their mechanisms of action, indications, and unique associated toxicities such as cytokine release syndrome, in addition to a chapter dedicated to biostatistics and clinical trials. Throughout the book, extensive tables, flow diagrams and other figures highlight, simplify and illustrate key concepts.

Written by experienced clinicians at the world-renowned Dana Farber Cancer Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston and leading experts at other renowned institutions, this stem cell transplantation handbook combines the clinical knowledge, expertise and practical application of these potential life-saving cell therapies s in one quick, point-of-care reference . With real-world clinical vignettes interwoven among the chapters, this handbook is an essential resource for anyone managing patients being treated with stem cell transplantation or cellular therapies.

Human Embryonic Stem Cells Handbook (Methods in Molecular Biology)

Considerable advances have taken place since the initial isolation and characterization of human embryonic stem (HES) cells; however, significant challenges remain before their potential for restoration and regeneration processes in patients can be realized. Understanding the diversity amongst HES cell lines and realizing the ability to isolate lines with robust differentiation potential remain difficult.  In the Human Embryonic Stem Cells Handbook, experts in the field provide an assortment of protocols that have been used by various laboratories around the world so as to allow both novices and experienced investigators to compare and contrast different approaches to HES cell isolation and characterization with the hope that, from these protocols, researchers might standardize approaches for HES cell biology.  Written in the Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips for troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

 

Authoritative and accessible, Human Embryonic Stem Cells Handbook serves as a valuable reference for scientists pursuing this vital field and its enormous potential.
