It is for the first time that experimentally induced generation and isolation of cancer stem cells (CSC), with the fusion of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) in vivo, is contained as content in this book. This methodology can be extended to the use of stem cells of totipotent, pluripotent and even multipotent lineages. This book consists of important and novel reports that the stem cell scientific community should further undertake. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
