The first book of its kind on marrow stromal cells, and written by leading experts in the field, this concise handbook aims to provide all that is needed to those new to this relatively young area of research. It provides a historical perspective and a summary of present knowledge of the marrow stromal lineages which are currently best understood. Detailed protocols for the isolation, culture and characterization of marrow stromal cell types from human and other animal species are given. The breadth and depth of the subject matter included makes the book equally suitable for new researchers and the more experienced investigator in this rapidly expanding field, including clinicians and bioscientists.

Industry Reviews

'... the editors and the conributors have done a signal service to the community of cell culture. This book really is a handbook - one that should be lying on the bench in the laboratory. The descriptions are very clear and the recipes seem to be complete. There are also useful tips from experienced workers to aid both the beginner and the more experienced scientist. I have been growing cells in the laboratory for about three decades and I learnt a lot from this book.' Sydney Shall, BDSB Newsletter ' ... the book is extremely helpful for those starting to work in this area, as well as for the advanced hematologist who is interested in stroma-stem cell type investigations.' R. E. Ploemacher
