Virtually any disease that results from malfunctioning, damaged, or failing tissues may be potentially cured through regenerative medicine therapies, by either regenerating the damaged tissues in vivo, or by growing the tissues and organs in vitro and implanting them into the patient. "Principles of Regenerative Medicine" discusses the latest advances in technology and medicine for replacing tissues and organs damaged by disease and of developing therapies for previously untreatable conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, and renal failure. This title provides key for all researchers and institutions in Stem Cell Biology, Bioengineering, and Developmental Biology. This is the first of its kind to offer an advanced understanding of the latest technologies in regenerative medicine. It offers new discoveries from leading researchers on restoration of diseased tissues and organs.
