Dental Stem Cells: Culturing for the Future

USD $ 9.99

Stem cells from dental pulp have been increasingly harvested for its’ beneficial effects in recent years, though there are still aspects and procedures unknown to many who have not yet ventured into this field. Thus, illustrated with colourful pictures that show how stem cells are harvested from the dental pulp and its’ characterization, Dental Stem Cells: Culturing for the Future provides a stimulating and informative exploration for future researchers venturing into this field.
Beginning with the introduction to stem cells, the authors expertly explain clearly and provide informative overview of dental stem cells – what they are, what scientists do with them, how they are harvested, and how they might be used in the future.
It is interesting that usually discarded teeth contain living stem cells that are actually found to be replicating faster and for longer period than stem cells from other tissues. Undergraduate, graduate students and researchers in cell and molecular biology and stem cell research, medical students, and interested lay readers will definitely find more interesting facts in this book.
