The ambitious goal of this volume is to provide - in chapters written by accomplished scientists and experts in their field - a comprehensive overview of the currently available information related to the therapeutic utility of adult bone marrow-derived cells. With excitement generated almost daily about the possible uses of stem cells to treat human disease, but the controversy surrounding their use still raging, adult bone-marrow derived cells are more readily available, and have a staggering range of uses.
