Core Principles in Cellular Therapy, 3rd edition 

This handy text provides a focused look at hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic cellular therapy that will be useful to those working on the periphery as well as the mainstream of this exciting field. Written by experts, these chapters excerpted from the AABB Technical Manual, 18th edition, were also peer-reviewed by AABB cellular therapy committee and subsection members. Together, these chapters capture what is essential to know about cellular therapy and regenerative medicine—for example, new advances in induced pluripotent stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, adipose-derived stem cells— as well as more established cellular therapy products.

Cellular Therapy: Principles, Methods, and Regulations, 2nd edition
Edited by Ellen M. Areman, MS, SBB(ASCP), and Kathy Loper, MHS, MT(ASCP) 

This manual was designed as a compendium of state-of-the-art practices and methods for developing and producing cellular therapy products, and for development and operation of a cellular therapy facility, whether for research, translational or clinical. Applicable to academia, government and industry, it is also an essential reference for those in regulatory affairs and quality assurance as well as for laboratory technologists, managers, directors, physicians and scientists. Through descriptions of the rationale and methodology for a variety of cell processing and evaluation techniques, it will assist laboratory staff in developing procedures that comply with applicable regulations and standards. In addition to numerous examples and templates for laboratory document preparation, several methods are provided that include a general overview of the critical steps, materials and equipment used in each process. Each section has been compiled and edited by a team of experts in the field, with subchapters contributed by specialists in the specific subject matter. As regenerative medicine becomes more integrated into the field, considerations for regenerative therapies are also integrated within each section.
