- 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
Dr. Douglas W. Stoddard (MD, M Sport Med, Dip Sport Med, ES) and Dr. Trevor L. Hall (MD, CCFP (SEM), Dip. SEM) have treated hundreds of patients with osteoarthritis, tendon tears, meniscal tears, and hip and knee injuries for nearly a decade in their RegenerVateTM Clinics. Their astounding results have restored quality of life to patients who never expected to be pain-free again.
This book is written for anyone with musculoskeletal pain who wants to get their life back by reducing or even eliminating the pain of a chronic injury or degeneration.
It’s worked for thousands of people in North America and around the world. It’s safe. It’s effective. It can work for you.
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.
