This book is written by experts in the field of hematopoietic stem cell biology and lymphocyte development in order to overview recent advances in the field. Prospective isolation of various progenitors and stem cells enables us to understand self-renewal mechanisms of stem cells as well as regulation of hematopoiesis. Furthermore, the importance of extrinsic factors has been emphasized recently. This volume concisely describes our current understanding of normal hemato/lymphopoiesis as well as abnormal hematopoiesis, which may lead to leukemia.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The text is exceptionally well written by 23 contributors from Japan, the United States, France, and Switzerland­­-- all experts in their respective fields of hematopoietic stem cell biology and lymphocyte physiology. . Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology will be most helpful and interesting to readers wanting a current update of the field. It is well indexed and well referenced, although it includes few figures, schemas, or photographs to help elucidate the text." (Paulette Mehta, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 304 (18), November, 2010)
