Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Human Health and Diseases provides a contemporary overview of the fast-moving field of MSC biology, regenerative medicine and therapeutics. MSCs offer the potential to dramatically reduce human suffering from disease. Numerous MSC-based studies are ongoing each year, each offering hope for novel treatments in human disease. This book provides information on MSC application in well-studied human diseases and tissue repair/regeneration and recent advances in their research and treatment. These discoveries are placed within the structural context of tissue and developmental biology in sections dealing with recent advances in our understanding of MSC biology.

Key Features

  • Includes insights ranging from MSC biology and development through the derivation and identification and properties of MSCs
  • Helps to identify potential innovative solutions for restoring normal morphogenesis and/or regeneration of diseased organs
  • Discusses the fact-based promise of MSC therapeutics and regenerative medicine in the real world


Researchers and practitioners in the following fields: Stem Cell Biology Research and Biotechnology, Regenerative Medicine, Disease, Medical Education, Biomedical Engineering
