Stem Cells in Ophthalmology describes a wide range of therapeutic applications of stem cells in ophthalmological treatments. This book is written and edited by distinguished international authors, who have drawn heavily on their in-depth academic knowledge, practical experience and research.

Comprised of 17 chapters, the book initially covers basic stem cell biology and immunity, proceeding to detail the use of stem cell therapy to regenerate all the structures of the visual system and ocular adnexa. Immunologic factors, such as antigen identification and functional rejection pathways are discussed in detail. The book also details practice of translational medicine and facilities, and governmental requirements needed to establish an ocular stem cell program.

Stem Cells in Ophthalmology gives extensive coverage to the regenerative use of stem cells in ophthalmology. Enhanced by 84 colour images and illustrations, this is an essential resource for ophthalmologists and stem cell therapists.
