About this book

At the cutting edge of science, "Cell of Cells" charts the race to put the stem cell to use. From a laboratory in the Sahara, where one problem is sand in the Petri dishes, to an Israeli laboratory that narrowly escapes a terrorist bomb, stem cells have gone global. Stem cells are not only being studied in an escalating number of laboratories - often unencumbered by public controversy and legal restrictions - but they are also being put to use. In Japan, a respected doctor uses them to increase the size of women's breasts. In Texas, stem cells rejuvenate dying hearts. In China, clinics offer stem cells to patients with everything from paralysis to brain trauma. Cynthia Fox illuminates the reality and promise of stem cell therapies, and illustrates how the extensive, fervent experimentation currently under way is causing a revolution; both in the human body and in the international body politic.
