Focusing exclusively on stem cell research and disease modeling in non-murine species, this volume reviews the latest cutting-edge research including freezing and banking samples. It details the latest pre-clinical models, such as iPSC in large animals.
.- Stem Cells in Dystrophic Animal Models: from Pre-clinic to Clinical Studies
This volume focuses on stem cell research and disease modeling in non-murine species. The book is divided into three parts: Stem Cells for Pre-Clinical Models, Stem Cells in Non-Conventional Species, and Stem Cell Banking for the Future. The first section presents an overview of the different pre-clinical stem cell models recently created in animal species, including the porcine model for heart failure, iPSC in large animal species, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and canine embryo-derived stem cells and modeling for human diseases. This section also discusses the potential advantages and applications of these models.
