Introduction to Statistical Methods in Pathology

By (author): Amir Momeni, Matthew Pincus, Jenny Libien

This text provides a comprehensive and practical review of the main statistical methods in pathology and laboratory medicine. It introduces statistical concepts used in pathology and laboratory medicine. The information provided is relevant to pathologists both for their day to day clinical practice as well as in their research and scholarly activities. The text will begins by explaining the fundamentals concepts in statistics. In the later sections, these fundamental concepts are expanded and unique applications of statistical methods in pathology and laboratory medicine practice are introduced. Other sections of the text explain research methodology in pathology covering a broad range of topics from study design to analysis of data. Finally, data-heavy novel concepts that are emerging in pathology and pathology research are presented such as molecular pathology and pathology informatics.

Introduction to Statistical Methods in Pathology will be of great value for pathologists, pathology residents, basic and translational researchers, laboratory managers and medical students.

Proteases in Physiology and Pathology

Using a multidisciplinary approach, this book describes the biochemical mechanisms associated with dysregulation of proteases and the resulting pathophysiological consequences. It highlights the role and regulation of different types of proteases as well as their synthetic and endogenous inhibitors. The role of proteases was initially thought to be limited to general metabolic digestion. However, we now know that the role of protein breakdown is much more complex, and proteases have multiple functions: they are coupled to turnover and can affect protein composition, function and synthesis. In addition to eliminating abnormal proteins, breakdown has many modulatory functions, including activating and inactivating enzymes, modulating membrane function, altering receptor channel properties, affecting transcription and cell cycles and forming active peptides. The ubiquity of proteases in nature makes them an important target for drug development.

This in-depth, comprehensive is a valuable resource for researchers involved in identifying new targets for drug development. With its multidisciplinary scope, it bridges the gap between fundamental and translational research in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, making it thought-provoking reading for scientists in the field.

Nongynecologic Cytopathology: A Practical Guide (Essentials of Diagnostic Pathology)

Features: Nongynecologic Cytopathology
By (author): Peter Spieler, Matthias Rössle

This manual for diagnostic cytologists offers detailed guidance on diagnostic problems likely to be encountered in everyday practice. It encompasses exfoliative and aspiration cytology of all major nongynecologic body sites. Each chapter opens with an algorithm that presents the reader with the relevant microscopic findings, the most important additional findings, and the differential diagnostic possibilities and problems in a clear and easily remembered form. Another important feature is the wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs, which clearly document the visual appearances of the most important lesions and highlight the differential diagnostic difficulties. The accompanying text contains helpful general remarks and presents further relevant information on diagnostics, differential diagnostic procedures, and auxiliary methods. Besides established cytologists and pathologists, cytopathologists in training and cytotechnologists will find this book to be a valuable aid.

Pathology of the Heart and Sudden Death in Forensic Medicine

By (author): Vittorio Fineschi, Giorgio Baroldi, Malcolm D. Silver

Addressing the pathology of the heart and cardiovascular system from a forensic perspective, Pathology of the Heart and Sudden Death in Forensic Investigations guides the pathologist toward the effective resolution of cases. It critically reviews pertinent facts by revisiting pathologic findings and comparing them to etiopathogenic hypotheses, proposing new ones substantiated by previously misinterpreted or ignored facts. It also presents recent findings on pediatric pathology.

The book describes the basic functional anatomy of the heart, combining views on examination from clinical and pathological perspectives. It systematically examines patho-physiologic changes and specific heart diseases and emphasizes the benefits of communication between forensic specialists and clinicians in determining cause of death. The book also assists the forensic pathologist in the presentation and interpretation of the sequence of events in a court of law.

Containing 150 color photographs that demonstrate forensic aspects of cardiopathology, the book offers a single source of pertinent information that is essential for every forensic pathologist to have when investigating a case.

Clinical Oral Medicine and Pathology

By (author): Jean M. Bruch, Nathaniel Treister

Following on the favorable reception of the first edition, the authors have thoroughly revised and updated the second edition of this resourceful clinical handbook. The book has been well received internationally by a wide audience of clinicians, including general dentists, oral surgeons, otolaryngologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, dental hygienists, physician assistants, and dermatologists, and sales have been strong among students and post-graduate residents training in medical, dental, and allied health fields, supporting the versatility of this work and serving as testimony to its value in both the academic and private practice arenas.   Several key updates and improvements have been made to the second edition. All informational content has been updated to ensure accuracy and relevance, particularly in the rapidly evolving fields of oncology and pharmacology. A new chapter has been added entitled “Oral Sequelae of Cancer and Cancer Therapy” which better organizes and consolidates previous content while expanding on topics such as targeted therapies and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Additional clinical images have been included throughout the book so that the full clinical spectrum of any given condition is well-represented. Furthermore, the print quality, as well as the positioning and layout of the clinical images has been improved for optimal utility. Lastly, the summary boxes that follow each condition have been reconfigured with color-coded icons for improved definition, ease of use and cross-referencing. Clinical Oral Medicine and Pathology, Second Edition will continue to serve as an authoritative contemporary resource for clinicians seeking guidance in the diagnosis and management of oral diseases.

The Practice of Surgical Pathology: A Beginner’s Guide to the Diagnostic Process

By (author): Diana Weedman Molavi

In pathology education, there is a wide gap in the pedagogy between medical school and residency. As a result, the pathology intern often comes into residency unprepared.
Completely illustrated in color, this book lays the foundation of practical pathology and provides a scaffold on which to build a knowledge base. It includes basic introductory material and progresses through each organ system. Within each chapter, there is a brief review of salient normal histology, a discussion of typical specimen types, a strategic approach to the specimen, and a discussion of how the multitude of different diagnoses relate to each other.
