Features

  • Discusses the indicators of bone disease such as fractures, stunting, and loss if mineral composition or strength
  • Explores the potential of stem cells to offer a novel therapeutic platform to treat bone disease
  • Provides easy access to information on stem cells and their applications

Summary

Stem cells potentially offer a novel therapeutic platform to treat bone disease. They also help the scientist understand the molecular and cellular aetiology of bone disorders. Gaining knowledge on the nature and application of stem cell sciences is a prerequisite for understanding their potential in treating or preventing bone disorders. Stem Cells and Bone Tissue is designed to address these areas in three sections:

      • Introductory Text and Sources of Stem Cells for Skeletal Tissue
      • Cellular and Molecular Aspects
      • Conditions, Applications, Treatments and Repairs

Coverage includes general aspects of stems cells, sources of stems cells, isolation and purification, applications in regeneration, nanoscale topography, myostatin (GDF-8) signalling, c-Jun, Lnk, cell-derived Factor 1/CXCR4, chromatin remodelling, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypophosphatasia, osteopetrosis, osteogenesis, and many other areas of merit too numerous to mention.
