Описание: The goal of Stem Cells Handbook is to present in one resource both the background and the current understanding of what stem cells are and what they can do. The authors of the various chapters were selected for their significant contributions to and expertise in various aspects of stem cell biology. A codicil for a book such as this that tries to cover an active field of research is that by the time it is published there will almost certainly be advances in understanding that have already made some of the material out of date. For example, in the last few months, there have been a number of additional papers on the plasticity of adult tissue stem cells as well as the observation that some effects believed to result from stem cell plasticity may be explained by cell fusion. Only ongoing studies will resolve these questions and provide the approaches required for potential breakthroughs in application to human diseases. In the meantime, we hope that the expert chapters in Stem Cells Handbook will provide useful and authoritative information to aid those who seek the answers to the unanswered questions.
