Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: The series Advances in Stem Cell Biology is a timely and expansive collection of comprehensive information and new discoveries in the field of stem cell biology. iPSCs as Cell Therapy for Disease Treatment, Volume 8 addresses how important induced pluripotent stems cells are and how can they can help treat certain diseases. Somatic cells can be reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells by the expression of specific transcription factors. These cells have been transforming biomedical research over the last 15 years. This volume will address the advances in research of how induced pluripotent stem cells are being used for treatment of different disorders, such as liver disease, type-1 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, macular degeneration of the retina and much more. The volume is written for researchers and scientists in stem cell therapy, cell biology, regenerative medicine and organ transplantation; and is contributed by world-renowned authors in the field. Provides overview of the fast-moving field of stem cell biology and function, regenerative medicine and therapeutics Covers spinal cord injuries, type-1 diabetes, liver disease, Parkinson's disease, graft vs. host disease, and much more Contributed by world-renown experts in the field
