Regenerative medicine is a fast developing field which has led to a paradigm shift in treatment of various diseases. Clinician-scientists worldwide constantly develop novel approaches in various medical specialties (surgery, internal medicine, oncology, neurology, gynecology, pediatrics, etc.) using gene therapy approaches, innovative biomaterials or stem cell based therapies.

It is difficult even for experts to find out what has already reached a clinical stage. The aim of the second volume in this series is to provide the reader with a current update on the latest therapeutic developments. As such, both patients and doctors will find the information contained within this manual to be useful and relevant. The editors are both international leaders in the field of regenerative medicine, and both possess a broad spectrum of experience from basic research to clinical application and commercialization.
