Description

Cell therapy is a rapidly developing area, drawing on cell biology, molecular biology, virology, immunology, cell quantitation techniques and biomedical engineering. It has potential in many clinical settings, in the treatment of cancer and other diseases. This volume in the series Cancer: Clinical Science in Practice examines the current state and future prospects of cell therapy, which seems likely to have an even more profound impact on health care than did the production of proteins by recombinant DNA technology. The coverage is broad, including the scientific principles of haematopoietic cell therapy, the technology of cell collection and preparation, current and likely future clinical applications of cell therapy, and the principles and practice of cellular immunotherapy. Up-to-date and authoritative, volumes in this series are intended for a wide audience of clinicians and researchers with an interest in the applications of biomedical science to the understanding and management of cancer.
