New discoveries in the field of stem cells increasingly dominate the news and scientific literature revealing an avalanche of new knowledge and research tools that are producing therapies for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases that afflict humanity. The Handbook of Stem Cells integrates this exciting area of life science, combining in two volumes the requisites for a general understanding of adult and embryonic stem cells. Organized in two volumes entitled Pluripotent Stem Cells a Cell Biology and Adult a Fetal Stem Cells, this work contains contributions from the worldas experts in stem cell research to provide a description of the tools, methods, and experimental protocols needed to study and characterize stem cells and progenitor populations as well as a the latest information of what is known about each specific organ system. * Provides comprehensive coverage on this highly topical subject * Contains contributions by the foremost authorities and premiere names in the field of stem cell research * Companion website - http://booksite.elsevier.com/9780123859426/ - contains over 250 color figures in presentation formattendon repair was performed in a hen flexor tendon model in which tenocytes seeded onto polyglycolic acid scaffolds were able to ... constructs showed significantly higher moduli and maximum stresses compared with the natural repair group (Awad etal., 2003). ... Repair tissue treated with MSCs had a significantly larger cross-sectional area at the repair site than the contralateral control ... Histologically, increases in tenocytes and collagen crimping pattern also occurred over time.
