Synopsis:

This book summarizes the progress made across the international medical and scientific research communities towards the goal of converting a chronic autoimmune disease into a drug-free reversible illness using hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and other cellular therapies to generate sustained immune tolerance. This book succinctly covers the entire field of hematopoietic stem cell therapy for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. Utilizing the authors' extensive experience, this title provides advice on best practice and evaluates the advantages and disadvantages of HSCT in the treatment of a variety of autoimmune diseases versus current conventional treatments. Arranged by disease, it provides the ideal guide to HSCT for all conditions, from multiple sclerosis (MS) to diabetes, and provides general guidance on the transplantation process.

Key Features

  • Outlines therapies and techniques for HSCT for autoimmune diseases, and d
  • Discusses its the advantages of HSCT over conventional therapies
  • Reviews the entire process of stem cell therapy from harvest and ethics to indications of efficacy.
