The book describes the presence of telocytes invarious organs and tissues, details their morphological characteristics, explorestheir genomic and proteomic profiles, puts forward preclinical evidenceof their application, and discusses their potentialin the context of clinical therapeutics. As such, it offers a valuable guide forbiologists and clinicians alike.
