Stem cell research is one of the leading “cutting edge” areas of life science research in the world today and is a topic of significant interest to a broad range of the medical and scientific community. This authoritative book provides reviews by the field’s leading scientists and covers many of the areas in which stem cells are becoming increasingly important, such as in organ repair and regeneration. Stem cells offer the possibility of cell therapy issues to treat a myriad of diseases, conditions, and disabilities including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, spinal cord injury, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes.
This monograph provides a current and in-depth review of scholarly information about mesenchymal stem cells and their application in the craniofacial region of the human body. Chapters in this volume cover biological and conceptual information about mesenchymal stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, craniofacial regeneration, new methods of scaffold fabrication, tooth regeneration and three-dimensional printing in dentistry. The book is suitable for clinicians and cell biologists aiming to gain a better understanding of the promising field of craniofacial regenerative medicine.
In the face of extraordinary advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human diseases, the inability of most tissues and organs, to repair and regenerate after damage is a problem that needs to be solved. Stem cell research is being pursued in the hope of achieving major medical breakthroughs.In maxillofacial region the Regeneration & Repair of damaged periodontal tissue, bone, pulp, and dentin are problems that the dentist faces today. Stem cells have potential to regenerate dentin, periodontal ligament, cementum and can be used for bone defect therapy. The proper utilization of stem cells can full fill the quest to live a long and healthy life which is as old as the appearance of the first cell on earth. So this book basically aims at reviewing the stem cells types, sources, clinical implications both in medical and dental field and along with their roll in tissue engineering.
