The prospective isolation of primitive blood-forming cells along with depicting of 
transcriptional networks that control early cell fate decisions, and characterization of 
microenvironmental signals influencing differentiation pathways during normal 
hematopoiesis, have been critical to the construction of a hierarchical model for the 
hematopoietic development, that has served as a paradigm for a number of systems 
within vertebrate development. Hematopoietic stem cell research has been helpful to 
elucidate mechanisms that govern tissue regeneration, to give an insight into 
perspectives that may allow protection of the system during disease, to design lifesaving 
therapies, and to discover novel drug activities. This promising field is being 
accelerated by significant contributions in genomics, molecular biology, and 
technologies including fluorescent activated cell sorting and mouse engineering, that 
give us a more integrated view of the nature of stem cells .
This book, Advances in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Research, is devoted to current and inprogress 
scientific knowledge on basic aspects of these seminal cells and their 
therapeutic applications. The text consists of 20 chapters grouped into four sections: 1) 
Hematopoietic stem cell properties, 2) Regulation of hematopoietic stem cells, 3) 
Hematopoietic stem cells in aging and disease, and 4) Hematopoietic stem cell 
The first section provides four comprehensive chapters on the functional 
characteristics and biological properties that make distinctive the conspicuous 
population of hematopoietic stem cells, including multipotency, self-renewal, 
quiescence and novel surface markers. Five chapters in the second section contain 
powerful information about intrinsic and extrinsic factors that determine cell fates in 
early development. The authors have discussed cellular and molecular aspects of the
hematopoietic microenvironment within the bone marrow, and progress in searching 
of procedures to make the expansion of truly stem cells possible . Behavior of the stem 
and progenitor cells in aging and during disease is analyzed in the third section of this 
text, which highlights recent achievements in unraveling the role of primitive cells in 
the pathogenesis of hematological malignancies like leukemia.
Finally, to provide a comprehensive overview of the advancements in therapeutic 
applications of hematopoietic stem cells, a fourth section with five chapters addresses 
special interest, has been the evaluation of quality and potency of stem and progenitor 
cells for therapy purposes. Substantial efforts to assemble the bridge between basic 
research and clinical applications are currently being recorded worldwide, and their 
review in this section may increase the interest for the book.
It is hoped that Advances in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Research will prove to be an 
enjoyable read and that it contributes to this area of Modern Medicine. This book is in 
effect a compilation of the latest advances resulted from the participation of 
distinguished and dedicated authors, experts in the field, to whom I am extremely 
thankful. I would like to acknowledge the terrific contribution of Maja Bozicevic in the 
professional editing of the book.
