Summary The need for customized stem cell therapies for specific conditions will be a major issue in the coming decades. This unique book by experts in the field reviews the subject as it stands today. Its coverage includes: basic and applied stem cell research and history; sources of adult stem cells; a comparison of difficulties in derivation, and the applications of embryonic and adult stem cells. Specific topics dealt with include advantages and problems associated with stem cell / matrix interactions and stem cell differentiation, difficulties using stem cells for clinical application, stem cell.
