Stem Cell Biology in Health and Disease presents an up-to-date overview about the dual role of stem cells in health and disease. The Editors have drawn together an international team of experts providing chapters which, in this fully-illustrated volume, discuss:

- the controversial debate on the great expectations concerning stem cell based regeneration therapies raised by the pluripotency of various stem cells.
- the advantages and concerns about embryonic stem cells (ES cells), induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) and adult stem cells, such as bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMDCs).
- the type of stem cells, which has become of interest in the past decade, namely so-called cancer stem cells (CSCs). CSCs are now in the focus of cancer research since the eradication of tumour initiating cells would raise the changes of definitely cure cancer.

Professor Dittmar and Professor Zanker have edited a must-read book for researchers and professionals working in the field of regenerative medicine and/or cancer.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Aus den Rezensionen: "Ein UEberblick zu Stammzellen in ihren verschiedenen Rollen bei Regeneration und Krebs? Ambitioniert. ... Das liegt einerseits am medium Buch. AEsthetisch ansprechend, nur dauert es eine Weile, bis es zusammengestellt und gedruckt ist. ... Viele wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse sind beeindruckend, wenn sie zum ersten Mal geaussert werden ... Im einleitenden geschichtlichen UEberblick stammen die aktuellsten Quellenangaben aus dem Jahr 2008. ... Als Aufsatzsammlung von Wissenschaftlern fur Wissenschaftler will das Buch wiederum zu grundsatzlich und umfassend sein. ... Ein aktuelles und spannendes Thema ..." (in: Transkript, March/2010, Issue 3, S. 67)
