  • Stem Cells and Human Diseasesby Rakesh Srivastava; Sharmila Shankar

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    The main objective of this book is to provide a comprehensive review on stem cells and their role in tissue regeneration, homeostasis and therapy. In addition, the role of cancer stem cells in cancer initiation, progression and drug resistance are discussed. The cell signaling pathways and microRNA regulating stem cell self-renewal, tissue homeostasis... more...

  • Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells in Brain Diseasesby Vivi M. Heine; Stephanie Dooves; Dwayne Holmes

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    Brain diseases can have a large impact on patients and society, and treatment is often not available. A new approach in which somatic cells are reprogrammed into induced pluripotent cells (iPS cells) is a significant breakthrough for regenerative medicine. This promises patient-specific tissue for replacement therapies, as well as disease-specific... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 4by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    Vast therapeutic applications of the following specific stem cells in disease and tissue injury are discussed: embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, human hair follical stem cells, bone marrow-derived human mesenchymal stem cells, adipose-derived stem cells, periodontal/progenitor cells, cancer stem cells, and breast cancer stem cells.... more...

  • The Cold War Politics of Genetic Researchby William deJong-Lambert

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    This book uses the reaction of a number of biologists in the United States and Great Britain to provide an overview of one of the most important controversies in Twentieth Century biology, the "Lysenko Affair". The book is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of history/history of science. It covers a number of topics... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 5by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    It is pointed out that a cancer stem cell is a type within a tumor that possesses the capacity of self-renewal and can give rise to the heterogeneous lineages of cancer cells, which comprise the tumor. It is emphasized that a unique feature of cancer stem cells is that, although conventional chemotherapy kills most cells in a tumor, cancer stem cells... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 6by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    The difference among pluripotent stem cells, multipotent stem cells, and unipotent stem cells is pointed out. Vast therapeutic applications of the following specific stem cells in disease and tissue injury are discussed: human embryonic stem cells, human mesenchymal stem cells, germ cell-derived pluripotent stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells,... more...

  • Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signaturesby Antonio Russo; Stefano Iacobelli; Juan Iovanna

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    Gene expression studies have revealed diagnostic profiles and upregulation of specific pathways in many solid tumors. The explosion of new information in gene expression profiling could potentially lead to the development of tailored treatments in many solid tumors. In addition many studies are ongoing to validate these signatures also in predicting... more...

  • Atlas of Human Pluripotent Stem Cellsby Michal Amit; Joseph Itskovitz-Eldor

    Springer 2011; US$ 169.00

    Human pluripotent stem cells, including human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells, are a key focus of current biomedical research. The emergence of state of the art culturing techniques is promoting the realization of the full potential of pluripotent stem cells in basic and translational research and in cell-based therapies. This... more...

  • Adult and Embryonic Stem Cellsby Kursad Turksen

    Springer 2012; US$ 219.00

    This volume will cover a series of reviews on stem cells including adult and embryonic stem cells. Speakers were invited to present these talks during the Stem Cell Symposia in fall of 2010, in Samsun, Turkey. Unique aspect of this volume is that it brings a multidisciplinary aspect of stem cells extracted from a symposium. more...

  • Evolution 2.0by Martin Brinkworth; Friedel Weinert

    Springer 2011; US$ 89.95

    These essays by leading philosophers and scientists focus on recent ideas at the forefront of modern Darwinism, showcasing and exploring the challenges they raise as well as open problems. This interdisciplinary volume is unique in that it addresses the key notions of evolutionary theory in approaches to the mind, in the philosophy of biology, in the... more...
