Customer Review

on August 1, 2008
A tell tale book recounting the most recent advances in stem cell treatments, focusing on advances that have been in translational research in the last 5 years.

Stem cell biology, arguably only a few decades old, has been gaining more steam in the research and clinical comminuties, with good reason. Much of the regenerative capabilities of both adult and embryonic (and more recently induced Pluripotent, or iPS) stem cells has allowed for new treatments for neurodegenrative disease, post cardiac arrest damage, and other diseases in which replenished cells are necessary. Cynthia Fox does a great job in taking the reader through the major centers of embyronic stem cell research (Egypt, Israel, South Korea, China, and a little in the United States) as well as those labs and clinics involved in adult stem cell therapies. In what is both an in depth look at the researchers AND the patients lives, along with the science taking place, the reader takes away the real sense of what can be done and is being done through stem cell research and therapies.
