About this Book

This new book explores clinical information in the tissue transplantation field and acts as a comprehensive learning tool to comply with regulatory requirements. Broad in scope, coverage includes all the traditionally transplanted tissues and moves into more complex areas of tissue grafting and the assisted reproduction fields. This useful text focuses on the potential for disease transmission, ways to improve safety, and the role of the clinician in these safety aspects. The book starts off by describing non-surgical risks of using allografts and moves onto chapters devoted completely to tissue- or cell-specific issues relating to transplantation of the individual types of tissues or cells.

Tissue and Cell Clinical Use: An Essential Guide is the final book in a series which covers all aspects of tissue banking, donation, processing, and transplantation. Each book in the series includes lists of learning points and case studies which consist of sample processing protocols, descriptions of where processing went wrong, sample risk assessments, or validation studies. This three book series covers all you need to know about tissue banking.
