Do you know that baby teeth are a rich source of stem cells? Kids have totally 20 baby teeth, most babies get their first tooth at around 6 months, and usually start to lose their first baby tooth at age 6 -7. This 32-page picture book will tell you an amazing story which based on scientific facts. Baby teeth contain stem cells and those stem cells may one day save a life. Let a baby tooth take you to the surprising stem cells world, it’ll bring you knowledge and the greatest joy by reading this book.
Mesenchymal stem cell-derived exosomes are at the forefront of research in two of the most high profile and funded scientific areas – cardiovascular research and stem cells. Mesenchymal Stem Cell Derived Exosomes provides insight into the biofunction and molecular mechanisms, practical tools for research, and a look toward the clinical applications of this exciting phenomenon which is emerging as an effective diagnostic. Primarily focused on the cardiovascular applications where there have been the greatest advancements toward the clinic, this is the first compendium for clinical and biomedical researchers who are interested in integrating MSC-derived exosomes as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool.
- Introduces the MSC-exosome mediated cell-cell communication
- Covers the major functional benefits in current MSC-derived exosome studies
- Discusses strategies for the use of MSC-derived exosomes in cardiovascular therapies
