This book integrates recent advances in molecular and cell biology of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) with developments in clinical research in stem cell-based therapy-providing an up-to-date review of novel cytokines and cellular components; animal models; cell preparation, selection, and collection; minimal residual disease and purging; expansion of progenitor cells; allogeneic and autologous transplantation; cellular gene and immunotherapy; and more. Examines key areas for treatment with HSC, including ambulatory care and monitoring, regimen-related toxicities, immunodeficiency and immunization, infection, chronic graft-versus-host and disease, secondary malignancies, and long-term quality of life. Covering stem cell pool regulation and the complex interplay of extrinsic and intrinsic events, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation summarizes current understanding and development of clinical allogeneic HSC transplantation discusses the use of allogeneic transplantations with reduced conditioning regimen or mini-transplantation considers various strategies for mobilization of HSCs from peripheral blood (PB) of normal donors details detection of bone marrow contamination by tumor cells and removal procedures focuses on efforts to increase the ex vivo transduction efficiency of human HSCs with retroviral vectors explores the effects of growth factor administration and leukapheresis on PB stem cell donors shows the impact of CD34+ cell isolation and the relevance of expansion of HSC from bone marrow for clinical use reveals how minimal residue disease detection assays are crucial for tracking the clinical significance of infused tumor cells employs automated fluorescence image cytometry to study early HSC behavior following seeding Incorporating contributions from over 90 researchers who cite more than 2180 references to encourage continued study, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation is a blue-chip reference for hematologists, hematopathologists, oncologists, cytotherapists, transplantation immunologists, and molecular biologists.

Organ transplantation has been the most important therapeutic advance in the last third of the 20th century. Its development has revolutionized medicine, as demonstrated by the fact that a large number of researchers in this field have been awarded Nobel Prizes. In the beginning of this century, we are witnessing with great expectations the emergence of a new field of medicine related to the arrival of a new player on the scene: “stem cells” and their potential use in regenerative medicine. This volume aims to cover important aspects of the various facets of organ transplantation and regenerative medicine, with leading specialists in these fields setting out their vision. We try to rigorously explain current and novel scientific research in these fields—areas which arouse great interest from society in general, due to their potential use in modern medicine for the treatment of a great number of diseases.
