This book presents a state-of-the-art summary of the applications of low temperature to clinical situations, together with details of the underlying principles of biology. It provides specific information for the clinicians and research workers in a number of areas of current interest and attempts to provide a unifying theme of cryobiology of interest and value to those researching a clinical problem. Specific topics discussed include the effects of low temperatures on mammalian systems in the absence of ice and how the changes can be modulated to achieve desired results; low temperature storage of tissues and organs for transplantation in the liquid state; the effects of whole body hypothermia in man and how it relates to mammal hibernation; problems associated with ice formation and the subsequent freezing of cells and tissues; cryopreservation of blood cells, reproductive cells, and tissues, such as the skin and cornea. Other interesting issues featured include the developments in cryopreservation of large, highly-organized structures and the destructive powers of ice formation in cryosurgery of diseased tissues.

Almost a decade has passed since the last textbook on the science of cryobiology, Life in the Frozen State, was published. Recently, there have been some serious tectonic shifts in cryobiology which were perhaps not seen on the surface but will have a profound effect on both the future of cryobiology and the development of new cryopreservation methods. We feel that it is time to revise the previous paradigms and dogmas, discuss the conceptually new cryobiological ideas, and introduce the recently emerged practical protocols for cryopreservation. The present books, "Current Frontiers in Cryobiology" and "Current Frontiers in Cryopreservation" will serve the purpose. This is a global effort by scientists from 27 countries from all continents and we hope it will be interesting to a wide audience.

Cryobiology is an upcoming field of science that has undergone rapid development over the past few decades. The effect that low temperature has on any biological material can be studied under the subject of cryobiology. The techniques used in cryobiology are tissue preservation and transplantation, cryosurgery, embryo and gamete preservation, etc. Cryopreservation primarily aims at preserving living cells. This book elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to cryobiology and cryopreservation. Scientists and students actively engaged in this field will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.

During the past 20 years there have been amazing developments in low temperature physics, engineering, and biology. They form part of the very rapid post-war growth in pure and applied sciences of every kind. During this period several branches of biology including immunology, molecular biology and, of course, cryobiology, have split off from their parent disciplines. One result of this splintering has been the development of separate jargons used by the specialists and sometimes incomprehensible to those working in closely allied fields. The pure physicists, chemists, and the applied scientists, including physicians, surgeons, and pathologists, find the new jargons particularly baffling. We have attempted in this monograph to present to cryogenic engineers a picture of cryobiologists and their problems using as few strange technical words as possible. We hope that this book will help to bridge the gap which has already formed between them in spite of the opportunities for collaboration in many projects. We hope that it may also be useful to scientific research workers and postgraduate students of many kinds united only by curiosity about cryobiology. We are very much indebted to Dr. K. Mendelssohn, who insti gated us to produce a monograph and who reassured us that cryogenic engineers are as keen to understand the current trends in biology, and particularly in cryobiology, as we are to enlist their help. We have had much help in preparing this book.

Cryopreservation and low temperature biology in blood transfusion

Proceedings of the Fourteenth International Symposium on Blood Transfusion, Groningen 1989, organised by the Red Cross Blood Bank Groningen-Drenthe

The theme of this 14th International Symposium on Blood Transfusion is closely related to the work and scientific contributions of the Dutch cryobiology pioneer Dr. Herman W. Krijnen of the Dutch Red Cross Central Laboratory. Dr. Krijnen was known and respected in the national and interna tional blood transfusion community as an extremely competent scientist and a beloved and admired colleague. Dr. Krijnen was intentionally honoured with the invitation to open this symposium on cryopreservation and low temperature biology in blood transfusion and be the guest of honour at this event. Unfortunately, Dr. Krijnen suddenly died on the first of June 1989. In honour and mem ory of Dr. Krijnen this symposium will therefore be dedicated to him. Since the lOth International Symposium on Blood Transfusion in 1985 highlighted the theme of "Future developments in blood banking", major changes have occurred in the blood banking world. Most of these changes were forced upon the Blood Banks by the fear of spreading AIDS through contaminated donations. This not only led to the wide spread testing of blood, but also to a more appropriate counselling of the community and the blood donors in specific. Additionally, virus inacti vation techniques were introduced for those components derived from multiple donations and intended for a regular transfusion in haemophi lia patients and others.

The book aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of cryobiology. It discusses thoroughly the various basic and fundamental concepts of this subject. Cryobiology, as part of biology deals with the study of changes occurring in living beings present in cryosphere of the atmosphere, when they are subjected to very low temperature. The systems studied in this field are organs, proteins, tissues, cells, and organisms. This text presents the complex subject of cryobiology in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. It explores all the important aspects of the area in the present day scenario. This textbook is meant for students who are looking for an elaborate reference text on cryobiology.

This book on cryobiology focuses on the recent developments and expansion in the field. Lately, there have been certain severe tectonic shifts in cryobiology though not visible on the surface but will have significant impact on both the advancement of novel cryopreservation techniques and the future of cryobiology. This comprehensive book discusses the existing applications and emerging practical protocols for the purpose of cryopreservation along with the description of the novel cryobiological ideas. The topics discussed in this book are as follows: Cryopreservation of Wildlife Genome (Terrestrial Animals), Cryopreservation of Aquatic Species, Cryopreservation of Plants, and Equipment and Assays. It consists of contributions made by researchers as well as scientists from across the planet and will be an important source for those interested in cryobiology.
