Description

A Roadmap to Non-hematopoietic Stem Cell-Based Therapeutics: From the Bench to the Clinic is a resource that provides an overview of the principles of stem cell therapy, the promises and challenges of using stem cells for treating various clinical conditions, and future perspectives. The overall goal is to facilitate the translation of basic research on stem cells to clinical applications. The properties of stem cells from various sources are reviewed and the advantages and disadvantages of each for clinical use are discussed. Modifying stem cell properties through preconditioning strategies using physical, chemical, genetic, and molecular manipulation to improve cell survival, increase cell differentiation potential, enhance production of paracrine factors, and facilitate homing to the site of injury or disease upon transplantation are reviewed. Various routes of stem cell administration and dosing, and the duration of effects, are explored. Individual chapters are written by experts in the field and focus on the use of stem cells in treating various degenerative diseases, autoimmune diseases, wound healing, cardiovascular disease, spinal cord injury, oral and dental diseases, and skeletal disorders. Finally, experts in the regulatory arena discuss mechanisms used in different countries for approving the use of stem cells to treat diseases and many common issues that are typically encountered while seeking approval for this class of therapeutic agent.

About the Editor

Xiao-Dong Chen

Xiao-Dong Chen, M.D., Ph.D. is currently a Professor in the Department of Comprehensive Dentistry and Chief of the Regenerative Medicine Program in the School of Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He is also the founder and Chief Scientific Officer of StemBioSys, Inc., San Antonio, Texas and a Visiting Professor at Shanghai Jiao-Tong University School of Medicine. Dr. Chen received his M.D. from Shanghai Jiao-Tong University School of Medicine, subsequently entered General Surgery residency, and then served as a staff General Surgeon. He also has a Ph.D. in Hematology and Developmental Immunology and has pursued the study of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) since 1993. He received post-doctoral training in stem cell and skeletal biology at Yale University and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) in Bethesda, Maryland. Dr Chen’s group was the first to establish a culture system, using cell-free native ECM, for expanding large numbers of high-quality non-hematopoietic stem cells (NHSCs) from various sources. To closely replicate the tissue specific microenvironment (niche) ex vivo, Dr. Chen and his team have extended their technology and developed 3D tissue-specific matrices for use in a variety of stem cell-based applications such as: 1) rejuvenating NHSCs from the elderly to establish a personal stem cell bank containing large numbers of high-quality autologous cells for treating age-related diseases; 2) inducing NHSC differentiation into the salivary gland epithelial cell lineage for repairing damaged salivary gland; and 3) enhancing the efficacy of bone marrow-derived MSCs for treating community-acquired pneumonia. The cell culture technology has also been used for other applications such as preserving pancreatic islet function, while reducing islet immunogenicity, for use in islet transplantation to treat type 1 diabetes. To foster the translation of his laboratory discoveries, Dr. Chen co-founded a startup company in 2010 (StemBioSys, Inc.; www.stembiosys.com). During the last several years, the company has been developing technology for scaling up the production of stem cells for treating human diseases, and providing a unique platform for quickly developing broad collaborations with other research institutes and biotech companies for basic research and clinical applications.

    A Roadmap to Non-hematopoietic Stem Cell-Based Therapeutics: From the Bench to the Clinic

    This is a great resource for researchers and clinician alike. As the field expands rapidly many do not appreciate the fundamental methods, characteristics and therapeutic applications for mesenchymal stem cells. This book captures a range of different procedures that have enabled the field to move forward so quickly. Thank you Dr. Chen for putting together such a comprehensive resource.
