  • ID: 2379559

Stem Cell Therapeutics for Cancer covers the application of stem cells in various cancers, with an emphasis on the aspects of these strategies that are critical to the success of future stem cell-based therapies for cancer. Topics covered in the book include stem cell sources, tumor specificity, targeted therapeutics, visualizing the stem cell, and therapeutic agent pharmacokinetics. Each chapter contains a brief introduction to the cancer, followed by an exploration of how engineered stem cells have been utilized to cure the disease in mouse models and in early phase clinical trials.

  • Comprises of sections on stem cell therapy in brain cancers, lung cancers, breast cancers, as well as stem cells in combination with other therapies
  • Focuses on the practical applications of using stem cells as gene delivery agents to treat cancer
  • Includes coverage of cutting-edge molecular imaging techniques in stem cell therapeutics for a variety of tumour types
