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.

    Key Features:

  • Provides latest insights and recommendations for managing challenging treatment complications and adverse events
  • Consolidates key information such as diagnosis criteria, disease staging, common complications, and more using detailed tables and helpful diagrams
  • Shares real-world clinical vignette examples which provide insight into clinical assessment, treatment, and management
  • Emphasizes patient management and best practices
  • Discusses short and long-term risks for stem cell transplantation and cellular therapy

STEM CELLS AND THE STEM CELL THERAPY.: It’s contemporary benefits.

STEM CELLS AND THE STEM CELL THERAPY.

It’s contemporary benefits.

The term “stem cell” is a general word used for describing the cells that possess the will power for an unending self-reproduction and still retaining its own original properties. This self-renewal ability must be in a regulated manner. These cells are like “mother cells” from which other cells are regenerated from. They have the ability to regenerate & repair damaged tissues in the body. These other cells that are re-generated aren’t just the normal cells, but rather they are specialized kind of cells. Some quotas calls these regenerated cells ‘daughter cells’.Stem cell therapy or treatment which is also known as the regenerative therapy (that is the generation of healthy cells to replace damaged or dead cells), is one that enhances the refurbishment or restoration of dysfunctional or damaged tissues so that they become more useful to the body, with the help of the stem cells. This book will enlighten you on the basics & rudiments of the stem cell therapeutic procedures, with all its contemporary benefits.

The Future of Brain Repair: A Realist’s Guide to Stem Cell Therapy (The MIT Press)

A scientist assesses the potential of stem cell therapies for treating such brain disorders as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.

Stem cell therapies are the subject of enormous hype, endowed by the media with almost magical qualities and imagined by the public to bring about miracle cures. Stem cells have the potential to generate new cells of different types, and have been shown to do so in certain cases. Could stem cell transplants repair the damaged brain? In this book, neurobiologist Jack Price assesses the potential of stem cell therapies to treat such brain disorders as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and spinal cord injuries.

Certainly brain disorders are in need of effective treatments. These disorders don’t just kill, they disable, and conventional drug therapies have not had much success in treating them. Price explains that repairing the human brain is difficult, largely because of its structural, functional, and developmental complexity. He examines the self-repairing capacity of blood and gut cells―and the lack of such capacity in the brain; describes the limitations of early brain stem cell therapies for neurodegenerative disorders; and discusses current clinical trials that may lead to the first licensed stem cell therapies for stroke, Parkinson’s and macular degeneration. And he describes the real promise of pluripotential stem cells, which can make all the cell types that constitute the body.

New technologies, Price reports, challenge the very notion of cell transplantation, instead seeking to convince the brain itself to manufacture the new cells it needs. Could this be the true future of brain repair?
