About this book
Gene and Cell Therapy provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the tools and state-of-the-art technologies that are currently available. Written by international leaders in the field, this third edition features 12 additional chapters that address such new topics as gene and cell therapies for diabetes, therapies supporting nanotechnology, siRNA therapeutics, alpha viruses, dendrimers, gene and cell therapies for cardiovascular disease, promising new cell and gene therapy trials, human embryonic stem cell research, and tissue engineering. All chapters in the text have been substantially updated and revised to reflect the latest information available in the field.
