Cardiovascular Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Cardiovascular Regeneration and Stem Cell Therapy
Edited by Annarosa Leri

Cardiovascular Regeneration and Stem Cell Therapy is the definitive reference on two of the most exciting areas of cardiovascular research myocardial regeneration and stem cell therapy for the treatment of disease.

Cardiovascular Regeneration and Stem Cell Therapy covers:

  • The biology of stem cells
  • The actions of stem cells from the bone marrow, the heart, and embryos on the normal restorative and repair functions of the heart and blood vessels
  • How stem cells could contribute to myocardial recovery in the face of injury and aging
  • How adjuvant therapy with growth factors might enhance stem cell activity in regeneration and repair
  • Clinical applications and clinical experiences
