Principles of regenerative medicine by Anthony Atala( )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2019 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtually any disease that results from malfunctioning, damaged, or failing tissues may be potentially cured through regenerative medicine therapies, by either regenerating the damaged tissues in vivo, or by growing the tissues and organs in vitro and implanting them into the patient. Principles of Regenerative Medicine discusses the latest advances in technology and medicine for replacing tissues and organs damaged by disease and of developing therapies for previously untreatable conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, and renal failure
Biocentrism : how life and consciousness are the keys to understanding the true nature of the universe by R. P Lanza( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book proposes a new perspective: that our current theories of the physical world don't work, and can never be made to work, until they account for life and consciousness. This book proposes that, rather than a belated and minor outcome after billions of years of lifeless physical processes, life and consciousness are absolutely fundamental to our understanding of the universe."--Page 2

Beyond biocentrism : rethinking time, space, consciousness, and the illusion of death by R. P Lanza( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of Time magazine's '100 Most Influential People' in 2014, and leading astronomer Bob Berman take readers on an intellectual thrill-ride as they re-examine everything we thought we knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself. All of science is based on information passing through our consciousness, but science doesn't even know what consciousness is and can't explain the linkage between subatomic states and observation by conscious observers. Science describes life as a random occurrence in a dead universe but has no real understanding of how life began or why the universe appears to be exquisitely designed for the emergence of life. The biocentrism theory isn't a rejection of science--quite the opposite. Beyond Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to quantum entanglement and consciousness. By listening to what scientific discoveries are telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are central to any true understanding of the universe. This forces a fundamental rethinking of everything we thought we knew about life, death, and our place in the universe."--Jacket

Cellular Therapies for Retinal Disease : A Strategic Approach( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book familiarizes the reader with the current landscape of cell-based therapies for the treatment of retinal disease, including diseases that affect the choriocapillaris, retinal pigment epithelium, photoreceptors, and retinal ganglion cells. Instead of utilizing a disease-centric approach to the topic, this book—edited by two world-renowned stem cell scientists—focuses on strategies for developing and transplanting the cells. This includes the creation of replacement cells, cell-based neuroprotection, and in vitro disease modeling and testing. The final chapters briefly review parallel approaches that do not directly utilize cellular transplantation. -- Publisher
Heart transplantation : the present status of orthotopic and heterotopic heart transplantation by D. K. C Cooper( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a great pleasure for me to contribute a brief introduction to this volume, to which so many of my colleagues at Groote Schuur Hospital and the University of Cape Town Medical School have contributed. Though considerable advances have been made in preventing or treating the complications of heart transplantation, even today a transplant pro gramme remains a major undertaking for a hospital team. The acquisition of a sufficient number of donor hearts, the maintenance of viability of those hearts, and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic rejection and infection remain major challenges to those caring for patients undergoing this operation. A transplant programme draws into it medical, surgical, nursing and paramedical staff from all quarters of the hospital and medical school, and requires sustained interest and dedication if patients are to be brought successfully through the procedure. If relevant experimental research is also to be carried out at such a centre, which in my opinion is essential, then an even greater number of highly skilled and creative people is required. A few of the authors of this book have been involved with the Groote Schuur heart transplant programme since its inception in December 1967 with the operation on Louis Washkansky. I am sure that none of them (nor I) had any idea of the public interest this operation would attract
Cell encapsulation technology and therapeutics by Willem M Kühtreiber( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of using encapsulation for the immunoprotection of transplanted cells was introduced for the first time in the 1960s. "[Microencapsulated cells] might be protected from destruction and from partici pation in immunological processes, while the enclosing membrane would be permeable to small molecules of specific cellular product which could then enter the general extracellular compartment of the recipient. For instance, encapsulated endocrine cells might survive and maintain an effective supply of hormone." (Chang, Ph. D. Thesis, McGill University, 1965; Chang et aI., Can J Physiol PharmacoI44:115-128, 1966). We asked Connaught Laboratories, Ltd., in Toronto to put this concept into practice. In 1980, Lim and Sun from Connaught Laboratories reported on the successful implantation of poly-I-Iysine-alginate encapsu lated rat islets into a foreign host. [Lim and Sun, Science 210:908-909, 1980]. Now many groups around the world are making tremendous progress in the encapsulation of a multitude of cell types. Kiihtreiber, Lanza, and Chick have invited many cell encapsulation groups from around the world to contribute to this book. The result is a very useful reference book in this rapidly growing area. With so many excellent au thors describing in detail the different areas of cell encapsulation, my role here will be to briefly discuss a few points
Yearbook of cell and tissue transplantation 1996-1997 by R. P Lanza( )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cell and tissue transplantation is one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding areas in medicine. This first edition of the Yearbook of Cell and Tissue Transplantation summarizes the latest advances in this revolutionary field, including developments in tissue engineering and transplantation of hybrid organs and tissues, while reviewing those data which, while not new, add to the usefulness of this work as a comprehensive reference. <br/> The justification for yearbooks is greater than ever as we approach the third millennium, overwhelmed with information. In view of the important and rapid changes occurring in this area, a new edition of this yearbook will appear periodically. <br/> The editors' careers at Harvard Medical School guarantee the quality of this book. The authors, too, are uniformly drawn from the highest rank of an unusually dedicated and heterogeneous professional group. <br/> from the Foreword by Thomas E. Starzl, Honorary President, The Cell Transplant Society : <br/> <strong>'</strong>No major topic in the global field is left uncovered ... the result will be a feast for those already well informed, and a life raft for those who are not.<strong>'</strong>
