Progress in stem cell research.


Progress in stem cell research.

Ed. by Prasad S. Koka.

Nova Science Publishers


250 pages




The editor, in his introduction, names the Journal of Stem Cells as the source of the 11 articles by medical scholars collected here, but the book's cover and title page make no mention of this journal or its qualifications for participation, an inconsistency that demonstrates the typically dubious editing standards of the publisher. The articles address topics that include: a novel serum- free culture system for the analysis of human hematopoietic progenitor cells, potential of bone marrow stromal stem cells to repair bone defects and fractures, adult neural stem cells and cellular therapy, control of tissue regeneration through oxygen concentrations, and stem cells in aging.
