Journal of Stem Cells publishes papers on all aspects of stem cell research, including, but not limited to, the following topics.
Reproduction of Stem Cells: Self-renewal (role of transcription factors), multilineage differentiation, signaling pathways in differentiation, totipotency and pluripotency
Embryonic Stem Cells: Organ generation (Organogenesis), sites of proliferation and differentiation, trans-dermal differentiation, and organ specific trans-localization and development
Hematopoietic Stem Cells: Early (primitive) and late progenitors, differentiation (role of c-Mpl, thrombopoietin, homeobox, cytokines, growth factors, inhibitors)
Neural Stem Cells: Sites of generation and localization
Mesenchymal Stem Cells: Beneficial roles of these cellular factors in clinical applications including bodily injury and transplantation
Cardiovascular Stem Cells: Cardiomyocytes, Endothelial cells
Stem Cells in Disease: Stem cells in congenital cytopenias, Stem cells in infection (HIV, hepatitis, other), Stem cells in cancer and leukemia (abnormal proliferation), Stem cells in autoimmune diseases, including Multiple Sclerosis and Diabetes, Stem cells in Parkinson’s, Stem cells in retina and Glaucoma (optic-nerve cell degeneration), Stem cells in aging including Alzheimer’s, Stem cells in regeneration and degeneration
Chimeric Animal Models for Human Stem Cells: Stem cell transplantation and reconstitution in vivo
Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation and Reconstitution: Different species and including primates and humans for studies on development, localization, and therapeutic strategies
Gene Delivery through Stem Cells: Vectors, lineage specificity of endogenous and exogenous stem cell gene expression
Stem Cells in Therapy: Therapeutic regeneration of molecularly engineered and transplanted autologous stem cells in neurological and cardiovascular diseases due to inability of self-regeneration / repair of endogenous stem cells at sites of inflammation or disease
Cancer Stem Cells: In vivo generation, role in malignancies such as disease development, progression including to next phase, relapse, metastasis, susceptibility in cancer treatment, presence in terminal phase of illness
