As the leading cause of adult disability, stroke poses substantial economic and psychological burdens to populations around the world. Against this dismal backdrop, several novel “neurorestorative” approaches are being investigated as adjunctive treatments to physiotherapy. Stroke Recovery with Cellular Therapies discusses the promising investigations around the world on cell-based therapies to enhance recovery from stroke. Throughout this groundbreaking text, chapters detail the potential benefits of various types of cells and approaches for ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, and all studies rely upon traditional histological and functional outcomes. Among the topics detailed in this volume are transplanting immortalized neural stem cells, transplantation of bone marrow stromal cells, adipose-derived stem cells, endogenous neural stem cells in tissue remodeling, and an investigation into the ethics of stem cell research. This text provides an overview of the field, stimulates ideas for further research, and will help serve as a foundation for cell-based therapies to move forward as a viable approach for stroke recovery in the future.

Published in affiliation with the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology covers the most fundamental protocols and methods in the rapidly growing field of Stem Cell Biology. With tested and proven protocols from laboratories around the world, Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology provides methods and insights that will enhance the progress of global research.
Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology is divided into three parts:
Embryonic Stem Cells – covers methods for isolation of stem cells from a variety of model organisms and humans, characterization of these cells and the undifferentiated state, induction of differentiation into cells of the mesodermal, endodermal, ectodermal and extraembryonic lineages, and molecular and functional characterization of the differentiated state.
Adult Stem Cells – includes the isolation of progenitor stem cells from differentiated tissues, their characterization, and differentiation.
Genetic Manipulation of Stem Cells – provides tools for manipulating the genetic content of stem cells and for marking stem cells.
Updated continually, this product will add new methods and ideas as the field expands. It employs the standardized presentation and format that has made Current Protocols the most respected source of methods for twenty years.

Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Animal Models and Human Transplantation (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)
Recent developments in both animal models and clinical application have changed our concepts and views about the identity and characteristics of stem cells. Many of the pioneers of these new experimental and theoretical developments have contributed their expertise to this volume focusing on the most primitive hematopoietic stem cells. They both describe recent progress and outline the future direction of the field. The great strides in research deal with the purification of stem cells, the characterization of microenvironmental regulators, the use of stem cells as vectors of gene therapy, and the identification of different sources for these rare cells. The exciting new developments in clinical application expand the scope of stem cell transplantation as a curative therapy for a variety of diseases. These new approaches include stem cell transplantation in uteri and new sources of stem cells such ascord blood and fetal tissues. This overview will enable you to compare the newest trends and developments, site by site, in stem cell research and clinical application.
