About this Book

Reviews in Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine (formerly The Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine) covers both the molecular and cellular basis of life and medicine. Updated quarterly, this reference work contains more than 500 articles. As of April 2015, it is published in a "Volumes and Issues" format, with previously published articles archived as "Topical Supplements."

Reviews in Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine articles are self-contained treatments of a given topic, usually with over 100 references and 10 to 20 figures and tables, making this an authoritative reference source for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, librarians and researchers. Each subject is presented on a ‘first-principles’ basis, including mathematical treatment as appropriate, tables of key data and detailed figures. Each article is a self-contained “mini-book”, accessible to readers at every level of expertise, and covers newly emerging and prominent topics in a myriad of cross-cutting subject areas.

Latest Issue: Volume 1 Issue 3 is available now.

Stem Cell Therapies Targeting Alzheimer's DiseaseStrategies for Targeting Alzheimer's with Stem Cell Therapies

There is a desperate need to develop more effective interventions for Alzheimer's patients. Several emerging strategies are based on directly targeting the production and degradation of the amyloid-beta peptide, aiming to inhibit disease progression, but unfortunately, many of these interventions have failed to improve cognitive deficits in a clinical setting. Current advances in stem Cell research could offer enormous therapeutic potential, not just for Alzheimer's Disease, but also in the treatment of other neurological conditions.
