Perinatal Stem Cells: Biology, Manufacturing and Translational Medicine

Overview

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to various types of perinatal stem cells. Given their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells offer a promising avenue in the treatment of degenerative diseases or injury. Currently, the limitations of postnatal cell sources and expanding efficiency may limit autologous stem cell therapies. Although embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) can be cultured indefinitely ex vivo, and can differentiate into three germ layers, ethical issues, the teratoma formation of ESCs and oncogenic risk of iPSCs are major obstacles to their clinical application. More recently, perinatal stem cells have been isolated from the umbilical cord, Wharton's Jelly, placenta, amniotic membrane and amniotic fluid, which are normally discarded as medical waste. This book, after describing perinatal stem cells in detail, introduces readers to the various types of perinatal stem cells, addressing their characterization, banking, quality control and stability. Importantly, it also reviews the clinical applications of perinatal stem cells to therapy of diseases. Accordingly, it offers a valuable resource for clinicians, researchers and graduate students alike.

Reviews

The book offers detailed insights into the sources of perinatal stem cells and how to derive, multiply and store them. It is intended for researchers in stem cell biology, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and students in developmental/stem cell biology. ... perinatal tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells are expected to play an important role, along with massive vaccination campaigns, in restoring human health in the coming years. (Manuela Monti, European Journal of Histochemistry, Vol. 65, 2021)
