This book integrates recent advances in molecular and cell biology of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) with developments in clinical research in stem cell-based therapy-providing an up-to-date review of novel cytokines and cellular components; animal models; cell preparation, selection, and collection; minimal residual disease and purging; expansion of progenitor cells; allogeneic and autologous transplantation; cellular gene and immunotherapy; and more.
Examines key areas for treatment with HSC, including ambulatory care and monitoring, regimen-related toxicities, immunodeficiency and immunization, infection, chronic graft-versus-host and disease, secondary malignancies, and long-term quality of life.
Covering stem cell pool regulation and the complex interplay of extrinsic and intrinsic events, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
Incorporating contributions from over 90 researchers who cite more than 2180 references to encourage continued study,
