Brand: Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

Stem cell research holds great promise for therapeutic applications. This rapidly advancing field is the focus of the biennial international symposium and workshop whose proceedings are contained within this volume.

The major topics covered are stem cell function, including self-renewal, survival, migration, and regulation; the stem cell niche; stem cell fate as lineage commitment takes place; malignant hematopoiesis; hematopoiesis regulators; and embryonic stem cells and plasticity.

As with previous volumes in this unique series of proceedings, it is hoped that further cooperation and collaborative projects will be generated by disseminating these presentations widely.

NOTE: Annals volumes are available for sale as individual books or as a journal. For information on institutional journal subscriptions, please visit www.blackwellpublishing.com/nyas.

Emerging Technologies in Transfusion Medicine

Emerging Technologies in Transfusion Medicine Lowest new price: $55.00
Lowest used price: $29.02
List price: $55.00
Author: Christopher P. Stowell

Transfusion medicine is rapidly changing from what was a relatively narrowly focused field with a limited diagnostic and therapeutic scope to one that embraces fundamental elements of immunology, stem cell biology, the inflammatory response and hemostatis. This shift in focus is in response to the accelerated pace of advances in biomedical research. No longer constrained to diagnoses based on blood group serology or to therapies based on a limited number of blood components and derivatives, transfusion medicine is redefining itself through the clinical application of modern biotechniques.

In Emerging Technologies in Transfusion Medicine examples of the emerging technologies that are transforming both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of the field are highlighted, offering a deeper understanding and an informed evaluation necessary for their application.

Highlights:

New approaches to screening donor blood for prions and bacteria
Use of phage display technology to develop new diagnostic tools or therapeutic agents
Use of a variety of molecular biological techniques
Potential application of gene array technology and proteomics
New therapeutic agents in transfusion medicine
Agents for intervening in a pathogenic process that is fundamental to transfusion medicine
Use of dendritic cells as immunotherapy agents
Advances in pathogen inactivation technology
Review of first-generation oxygen therapeutics and how this experience is influencing the next generation of candidate blood substitutes
