Artificial Cells: Biotechnology, Nanomedicine, Regenerative by Thomas Ming Swi Chang

By Thomas Ming Swi Chang

This can be the 1st ebook that offers a entire evaluate of the complete quarter of man-made cells. the writer, a pioneer of the sector, invented the 1st synthetic cells a few 50 years in the past and has persevered to hold out energetic learn during this box. considering then, there were explosive examine actions around the globe on synthetic cells, specially in fields with regards to biotechnology, nanomedicine, cellphone treatment, blood substitutes, drug supply and others. besides the fact that, rather than the time period man made cells, many authors use different terminologies such blood substitutes, bioencapsulation, liposomes, nanoparticles, and so forth. for this reason, any significant literature look for an entire proposal of the current prestige of the complete box of synthetic cells is very unlikely. additionally, the truth that papers during this hugely interdisciplinary region are released in different journals focusing on chemistry, drugs, surgical procedure, bioengineering, and others, makes literature seek much more tricky. Books during this zone are more often than not multi-authored, describing very particular and slender components. for that reason, many that input this box for the 1st time can't locate any e-book that describes laboratory equipment and approaches wanted for beginning their examine. This monograph is written to fill this hole. in accordance with his 50 years of labor and an interdisciplinary heritage, the writer has controlled to incorporate all these parts in synthetic cells which are disguised lower than assorted terminologies. due to the fact that it is a very huge quarter, he begins each one bankruptcy by means of giving an in depth review and has integrated greater than a thousand references to facilitate more uncomplicated literature seek of this hugely interdisciplinary region. specific examples of the writer s personal study are given and techniques and methods are defined intimately. Readers attracted to an in depth assessment of the total sector can learn from disguise to hide yet omitting the equipment part on the finish of every bankruptcy. nevertheless, these coming into this zone of study will locate the distinct equipment and methods very necessary.

Sample text

Below is a brief introduction to the use of this principle for stem cells and genetically-engineered cells. Stem cells We used the two-step method and the coencapsulation of stem cells and hepatocytes into artificial cells (Liu and Chang, 2000) (Fig. 5). This results in further increase in the viability of encapsulated hepatocytes both in culture and after implantation (Liu and Chang, 2002). An implantation of artificial cells containing both hepatocytesstem cells into Gunn rats lowers the systemic bilirubin levels, the low level being maintained for two months (Liu and Chang, 2003).
