This book provides an update of recent advances in the basic and clinical applications of cell-based therapies for myocardial repair and regeneration in ischemic heart disease (IHD) and heart failure (HF). The first sections of the book illuminate basic aspects of stem cells such as definitions, isolation criteria and characterization of embryonic and adult stem cells, as well as pluripotent stem cells and tissue specific progenitor and stem cells. In the following section, the text examines the role of critical regulators of stem cell differentiation in myocardial regeneration, that include circadian rhythyms, microRNAs, epigenetics, microvescicles, and exosomes. The text concludes with a review of the use of stem/progenitor cells in cardiac regeneration and discuss current controversies, unresolved issues, challenges, and future directions. Stem Cells and Cardiac Regeneration is addressed to a wide audience consisting of cardiologists, clinicians, and research scientists, who will learn new concepts in cardiovascular regeneration and repair with special focus on molecular mechanisms and therapeutic potential for cardiovascular regeneration.
To achieve cardiac regeneration using pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, researchers must understand iPS cell generation methods, cardiomyocyte differentiation protocols, cardiomyocyte characterization methods, and tissue engineering. This book presents the current status and future possibilities in cardiac regeneration using iPS cells. Written by top researchers who present new data in these fields, this book reviews cardiac cell therapy for ischemic heart disease and explores in vitro generation of efficacious platelets from iPS cells. It also discusses modeling arrhythmogenic heart disease with patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells.

Stem Cell 100+ adds high absorption and a more powerful faster acting formula to Stem Cell 100. It promotes healthy longevity by acting on 11 different mechanisms of aging including support for stem cells, telomeres, longevity genes and more. It was developed to rejuvenate and slow down the aging process to help people feel and function more like a young person. This helps you look younger and improve your health. Your body loses function as you get older. Each of us has adult stem cells that repair damaged and old tissues. The problem is that our adult stem cells are also aging. Until now there was not much you could do about it. Stem Cell 100 helps improve adult stem cells and their micro-environments. Developed by experts in the anti-aging field Stem Cell 100 doubled maximum lifespan in an animal study. No other family of products or therapies including caloric restriction has achieved that.
