Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Recent advances in the fields of medicine and technology have led to the development of stem cell therapy. A stem cell is a cell that has the potential to develop into many different types of cell in the body. It has the ability to divide and copy itself and at least one other specialized type of cell.
Stem Cells was written to provide information about the development of stem cell therapy, which can be used in the fields of research and medicine.
