The facial nerve is second only to the vagus as the "busiest" cranial nerve in the human body. It is the part of the highly specialized nervous system and is genetically programmed to perform in a specific fashion. As the techniques of microsurgical nerve repair have become established , it appears that improved clinical results will be independent of further refinements in surgical technique. The technology of muscle transplantation into the paralyzed face has undergone significant improvements over the past decades , with corresponding improvements in the clinical efficacy of the technique.
Nanocomposites are usually multiphase materials with significant proportions of each phase where one of the phases has one, two or three dimensions of less than 100 nm. The nanocomposites are widely applied in various fields ranging from electronics, sensors, solar cells, fuel cells, batteries, filters to bio-engineering fields such as tissue engineering and drug delivery. The word "Nanofibers" is commonly divided into two parts, namely "nano" and fibers which have higher aspect ratio combined with their microporous structure which favors migration, cell adhesion, differentiation, and proliferation, all of which are highly desired properties for tissue engineering. The most promising technique for tissue regeneration is tissue repair by autologous cell/tissue transplantation. Tissue engineering is an emerging interdisciplinary field to achieve the goal of tissue regeneration. To improve the tissue function and maintenance, tissue engineering approaches makes use of biomaterials, cells etc.
Increasing evidence suggests that liver stem cells have the capacity to differentiate into parenchymal hepatocytes or into bile ductular cells. These stem cells may be activated to proliferate after severe liver injury or exposure to hepatocarcinogens. Stem cell replacement strategies are being investigated as an alternative approach to liver repair and regeneration. Additionally, stem cell transplantation has been shown to significantly improve liver function and increase survival in experimentally-induced liver-injury models in animals. In Liver Stem Cells : Methods and Protocols , expert researchers focus on several hepatic progenitor cells, hepatic differentiation form stem cells, bile ductal cell formation from stem cells, liver stem cells and hepatocarcinogenesi, and application of liver stem cells for cell therapy. These topics shed light on stem cell technology which may lead to the development of effective clinical modalities for human liver diseases. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology(TM) series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.Thorough and intuitive, Liver Stem Cells: Methods and Protocols seeks to aid scientists in the further study of preclinical and clinical investigations that explore the therapeutic potential of stem cells in repair of liver injuries.
This comprehensive book discusses cartilage repair and all its aspects. These aspects vary from basic insights in cartilage biology and regeneration via MRI, to results of existing cartilage repair techniques and upcoming novel approaches. Fundamental cartilage biology is the topic covered within the first chapters of the book. These chapters not only provide an insight in healthy, damaged and regenerative cartilage but also describe developments in gene therapy and methods to enhance chondrogenesis of stemcells and prevent hypertophic differentiation. There is a huge progress in the possibilities of MR imaging of both healthy, damaged and regenerative cartilage. These developments not only enable better monitoring of cartilage repair but may also unravel the pathophysiology of the development of cartilage defects. Different cartilage repair techniques (e.g. allografts, autologous chondrocytes transplantation [ACT], microfracture), there technical aspects (e.g. developments towards an total arthroscopic approach), pitfalls, and outcomes are reported in the following chapters. In these chapters factors important for the results of cartilage repair such as meniscal repair, patient factors are described. Finally, an overview of novel cartilage repair techniques such as minced cartilage, denovo cartilage and more areas are discussed in this comprehensive addition to the literature.
This comprehensive volume on the blood-gas barrier (BGB) among vertebrates covers its structure and composition along with aspects of evolution, bioengineering, and morphometry. The book also discusses the embryological development of the BGB, including chronology of events and molecular control in vertebrates, modulation of the barrier function, including cyclic stretch-induced increases in alveolar epithelial permeability, mechanisms of lung vascular/epithelial permeability, transport mechanisms of the BGB, including sodium transport channels, factors affecting trans-barrier traffic of fluids, such as chronic elevation of pulmonary microvascular pressure, stress failure, regulation and repair in acute lung injury, chronic lung disease, and lung transportation.Ten authoritative chapters approach the blood-gas barrier holistically, from basic structure and development to pathology and treatment. Properties of the BGB are discussed in the earlier chapters, followed by prenatal and post-natal development and mechanisms of the healthy BGB. The latter half of the book delves into the pathology of the BGB, analyzing common afflictions and exploring options for treatment, including its alterations during lung transplantation. Intuitively structured and comprehensive, The Vertebrate Blood-Gas Barrier in Health and Disease is ideal for researchers and clinicians interested in pneumology and angiology.
This volume focuseson the cell biology and physiology of skeletal muscle regeneration. This Bookis a collection of classic and cutting edge protocols optimized for mice, butin most cases adaptable to rat or other mammalian models, that will allow aninvestigator to develop and implement a research study on skeletal muscleregeneration. Chapters address the three major areas of study: provoking regeneration by inducing damage to muscle, analyzing theprogenitor cells of skeletal muscle, and quantifying overall muscle function.
