Stem cell research, and its potential applications in the field of medicine, has been one of the most controversial subjects in recent years. Dr. Tony Lu has written a balanced and objective book that provides accurate and insightful answers on the history, evoluation and current state of this rapidly progressing field. STEM CELL 101 is your guide to understanding: what a stem cell is, the diffrerence between embryonic and adult stem cells, how these cells are extracted from the body, Hematopoeitic and Mesenchymal stem cells, the potential to prevent various kinds of disease, and how America has fallen behind the cutting edge of the research that is now happening throughout the world.
Therefore, in this book, I want to continue with anti-aging, and also include some of the more popular topics posted by the group.

I am a financial writer, having written 6 books on the rigged banking system, inflation, capital controls, precious metals, and expatriation. Besides writing financial books, I am a licensed SEC investment adviser.In 2016, I was given 300,000,000 cord stem cells for an anti-aging program, which changed my life. Despite my medical training in school, I really had no idea what stem cell therapy entailed.I didn't know in 2016, that my stem cell anti-aging was going to work for me. But it did, beyond my wildest dreams! Because of this, I wanted to share this success with those in the FB Stem Cells 101 group, thought to be the world's largest stem cell group, with 16,000 members.My first stem cell book, entitled Forever Young, My True Stem Cell Story, was not a great seller. Actually, it was never meant to be. It was meant to just tell my story of the amazing transformation that occurred. The book was read by many on the site, and I am told, was responsible for many starting an anti-aging program.This, my second stem cell anti-aging book, is a little more comprehensive and touches on the many concerns of the members of FaceBook's Stem Cells 101 group.The first book was a good lead into my second anti-aging treatment that took place in September 2019. It seemed that everyone on the site wanted to hear my first anti-aging success story. Now, they will hear my second, plus my interpretation of many of the concerns discussed on the site.Many on the site wanted to look and feel 25 years younger, who wouldn't! I've been a group member for about a year, and have learned much from member's post. Surprisingly, very few of the members post on the site. It appears that the same fifty members post over and over again. However, almost all members seem to read the posts, and offer their "likes". But when they, or a member of their family has a serious medical problem, they get into the posting routine rather quickly. It's so gratifying to see the docs on the site, and those in the know, chime in, and assist those needing advice and help.The purpose of the FB group was to encourage members having debilitating diseases and painful injuries, to share their experiences. Hopefully, sharing their successes, and failures, will help the other members better understand their own medical problems. Therefore, in this book, I want to continue with anti-aging, and also include some of the more popular topics posted by the group. By the way, I have put together a list of twenty-two International Stem Cell Clinics, ranked according to patient care, price and what site members have to say about them.

101 Pearls in Refractive, Cataract, and Corneal Surgery has invaluable tips for both the beginning and advanced surgeons. Unlike other texts on this topic, this resource summarizes the key pearls and pitfalls of many challenging procedures. This book serves as a condensed summary of surgical tips acquired from the personal experiences of Drs. Melki and Azar, as well as interactions with many other well-known colleagues in the field of refractive, cataract, and corneal surgery. It teaches you how to enhance surgical outcomes, reduce surgical time, minimize complications, or simplify a complicated step. The focus is on practical points, rather than the theoretical aspects of the procedures. There is no other book on ophthalmic surgical techniques that follows this unique format. There are excellent illustrations allowing for a quick and thorough understanding of each technique. Each pearl includes an "always remember" section, with statements at the end of each pearl to remind the reader of the most important points. 101 Pearls in Refractive, Cataract, and Corneal Surgery includes chapters on: LASIK Complications; PRK; PTK; PARK; Hyperopia Treatment; Topography; Corneal Lacerations Repair; Posterior Vitreous Pressure During Keratoplasty; and Pterygium Excision, among others.

This timely volume brings together essays by an internationally distinguished and diverse group of scholars. Contributors thoughtfully explore the ethical, public policy, and scientific implications of embryonic and adult stem cell research. Part one of the book offers a variety of scientific and public policy perspectives, including essays on stem cell plasticity and using umbilical cord blood as an alternative source of pluripotent stem cells. Part two vigorously examines the ethics of stem cell research and considers issues of social justice, morality, and public policy. Scientific alternatives, a natural law perspective regarding federal funding, and a discussion of the possible moral complicity of Catholic researchers are among the distinctive contributions made to the stem cell research debate by this collection. The objective and balanced discussions contained in this volume serve as an accessible introduction to the bioethical questions, issues, and problems surrounding stem cell research.
This book is a compilation of the bench experience of leading experts from various research labs involved in the cutting edge area of research. The authors describe the use of stem cells both as part of the combinatorial therapeutic intervention approach and as tools (disease model) during drug development, highlighting the shift from a conventional symptomatic treatment strategy to addressing the root cause of the disease process. The book is a continuum of the previously published book entitled "Stem Cells: from Drug to Drug Discovery" which was published in 2017.

Stem Cell Biology in Health and Disease presents an up-to-date overview about the dual role of stem cells in health and disease. The Editors have drawn together an international team of experts providing chapters which, in this fully-illustrated volume, discuss: - the controversial debate on the great expectations concerning stem cell based regeneration therapies raised by the pluripotency of various stem cells. - the advantages and concerns about embryonic stem cells (ES cells), induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) and adult stem cells, such as bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMDCs). - the type of stem cells, which has become of interest in the past decade, namely so-called cancer stem cells (CSCs). CSCs are now in the focus of cancer research since the eradication of tumour initiating cells would raise the changes of definitely cure cancer. Professor Dittmar and Professor Zänker have edited a must-read book for researchers and professionals working in the field of regenerative medicine and/or cancer.
This cutting-edge text will be a valuable resource for scientists and aspiring graduate students interested in the intersection of RNAi, miRNA, and stem cell molecular biology and exciting areas of research such as regenerative medicine and cancer.
Progenitor and stem cells have the ability to renew themselves and change into a variety of specialised types, making them ideal materials for therapy and regenerative medicine. Progenitor and stem cell technologies and therapies reviews the range of progenitor and stem cells available and their therapeutic application. Part one reviews basic principles for the culture of stem cells before discussing technologies for particular cell types. These include human embryonic, induced pluripotent, amniotic and placental, cord and multipotent stem cells. Part two discusses wider issues such as intellectual property, regulation and commercialisation of stem cell technologies and therapies. The final part of the book considers the therapeutic use of stem and progenitor cells. Chapters review the use of adipose tissue-derived stem cells, umbilical cord blood (UCB) stem cells, bone marrow, auditory and oral cavity stem cells. Other chapters cover the use of stem cells in therapies in various clinical areas, including lung, cartilage, urologic, nerve and cardiac repair. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Progenitor and stem cell technologies and therapies is a standard reference for both those researching in cell and tissue biology and engineering as well as medical practitioners investigating the therapeutic use of this important technology.

Hopes are high that stem cell (SC) research will lead to treatments and cures for some of the most serious diseases affecting humankind today. SC science has been used in a treatment setting in the replacement of patients’ windpipes and in restoring sight to patients who were blind in one eye and in future it is hoped that when the body is injured it will be able to be stimulated to produce those types of SCs necessary to repair the particular damage caused. In the meantime, research into specific treatments for a wide range of serious conditions is being undertaken including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and diabetes. The book considers the regulatory governance of stem cell research, setting out a readily understandable account of the science and the challenges it poses for regulators as the research is increasingly being clinically applied. It provides a critical account of those elements of a regulatory system which will be required for any jurisdiction aiming to facilitate innovative and productive SC research while maintaining appropriate ethical and legal controls. The book addresses the specific failings in the current regulatory approach to SC research in the UK and goes on to look at the regulatory approaches in the US. The book systematically analyses the roles and responsibilities of the three key participants who collaborate in this process: regulators, scientists and tissue providers, arguing that a regulatory system which fails to recognise and facilitate the vital role which each of these three groups plays runs the risk of impairing the chances of the hopes for SC research being realised. The book places a particular emphasis on ensuring that those who contribute their bodily tissues to this endeavour are treated fairly, involving a recognition that their tissues are their property.
