A fundamental property of hematopoetic stem cells is their capacity to self-renew, thus providing, in principle, a limitless source of daughter cells and with the same functional properties. This volume presents the most recent developments, and their clinical implications, in hematopoietic stem cell research. The field of hematopoietic stem cell biology is rapidly advancing and new ideas and concepts supported by new technologies provide new discoveries. Topics covered are genetic and epigenetic regulation of stem cells, stem cell plasticity, stem cell regulation and self-renewal, and embryonic stem cells as well as malignant stem cell biology.

Much research has focused on the basic cellular and molecular biological aspects of stem cells. Much of this research has been fueled by their potential for use in regenerative medicine applications, which has in turn spurred growing numbers of translational and clinical studies. However, more work is needed if the potential is to be realized for improvement of the lives and well-being of patients with numerous diseases and conditions. This book series 'Cell Biology and Translational Medicine (CBTMED)' as part of SpringerNature’s longstanding and very successful Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series, has the goal to accelerate advances by timely information exchange. Emerging areas of regenerative medicine and translational aspects of stem cells are covered in each volume. Outstanding researchers are recruited to highlight developments and remaining challenges in both the basic research and clinical arenas. This current book is the tenth volume of a continuing series.

Muscle: Fundamental Biology and Mechanisms of Disease will be the first reference covering cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle in fundamental, basic science, translational biology, disease mechanism, and therapeutics. Currently there are no publications covering the science behind the medicine, as the majority of books are 90% clinical and 10% science. Muscle: Fundamental Biology and Mechanisms of Disease will discuss myocyte biology, also known as muscle cell biology, providing information about the science behind clinical work and therapeutics with a 90% science and 10% clinical focus. A needed resource for researchers, clinical professionals, postdocs, and graduate students, this publication will further discuss basic biology development and physiology, how processes go awry in disease states, and how the defective pathways are targeted for therapy. As stated by a reviewer of the proposal, "An integration of topics ranging from basic physiology to newly discovered molecular mechanisms of muscle diseases is highly desirable. I am not aware of a comprehensive book that covers and integrates these topics."- Maik Huttemann, Wayne State University, MI. Per the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Disease, an institute at the National Institutes of Health, "clinical investigators are sorely needed to translate an ever increasing number of basic research findings into medical applications". This book will assist both the new and experienced clinician's and researcher's need for science translation of background research into clinical applications, bridging the gap between research and clinical knowledge.

The Cancer Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of scientific and clinical information in cancer research and medicine (oncology). This area is one of the most intensively studied in biology and medicine, resulting in a huge amount of new information being published every year. This book summarizes and explains key facts and recent developments. It is aimed at a wide variety of readers who need easy access to knowledge concerning all major aspects of cancer biology, without too much clinical detail or specialist research material. The Cancer Handbook stands out from existing oncology textbooks and reference works in that it bridges the gap between the molecular biology of cancer and clinical diagnosis and treatment. As more and more laboratory research is applied to clinical management, e.g. the use of monoclonal antibodies as drugs, it is important that clinicians understand the aetiology of the disease and the molecular basis of the new therapeutic approaches. It is also important for laboratory scientists to appreciate the potential applications of their research and the practical issues involved in translating it to clinical practice. For this second edition, all the sections have been fully revised and updated, with new chapters addressing important topics that have gained prominence in recent years. New editors and authors have brought additional expertise to the project. For example, in the section on the Molecular and Cellular Basis of Cancer, there are new chapters on stem cells, epigenetics, and microRNAs, as well as chapters on the links between cancer and development and inflammation. In the Treatment section, the emphasis is now on multidisciplinary team management of different cancers, plus there are new chapters on clinical trial design, RNA interference and rational drug design. The page design and the quality of the diagrams has been improved, with all illustrations now in full colour. The glossary has been made more informative and easy to use.
