Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures

 Pathology  Comments Off on Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures
Jun 052019
 

Gene expression studies have revealed diagnostic profiles and upregulation of specific pathways in many solid tumors. The explosion of new information in gene expression profiling could potentially lead to the development of tailored treatments in many solid tumors. In addition many studies are ongoing to validate these signatures also in predicting response to hormonal, chemotherapeutic and targeted agents in breast cancer as well as in other tumors.Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures provides readers a useful and comprehensive resource about the range of applications of microarray technology in oncological diseases. Topics covered include gene signatures and soft tissue sarcomas, prognostic relevance of breast cancer signatures, gene expression profiling of colorectal cancer and liver metastasis, gene signatures in GISTs, CNVs and gene expression profiles in pancreatic cancer, and gene signatures in head/neck, lung and gastric tumors.Diagnostic, Prognostic and Therapeutic Value of Gene Signatures will be of great value to residents and fellows, physicians, pathologists and medical oncologists.

100 Cases in Clinical Pathology

 Pathology  Comments Off on 100 Cases in Clinical Pathology
Jun 012019
 

A 27-year-old Ghanaian woman presents in the emergency department with a three-day history of headache, nausea, and vague lower abdominal pain. She has no significant past medical history, but is eight-weeks pregnant with her first child. She lives in London and returned from a trip to Ghana two weeks ago. You have been assigned her initial assessment…

100 Cases in Clinical Pathology presents 100 clinical scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency department, outpatient clinic, or in general practice in which an understanding of the underlying clinical pathology is central to arriving at the correct diagnosis. A succinct summary of the patient’s history, examination, and initial investigations—histopathology, chemical pathology, haematology, microbiology, and clinical immunology as appropriate—is followed by questions on each case, with particular emphasis on the interpretation of the results and the arrival at a clinicopathologic diagnosis. The answer includes a detailed discussion on each topic, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors.

Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions, and choosing the best course of action to take as a result, is one of the most important and challenging parts of training to become a doctor. These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical conditions, to request the appropriate pathological investigation and correctly interpret those results, and, as a result, to develop their diagnostic and management skills.

Clinical Linguistics: Theory and Applications in Speech Pathology and Therapy

 Pathology  Comments Off on Clinical Linguistics: Theory and Applications in Speech Pathology and Therapy
May 312019
 

This work covers different aspects of speech and language pathology and it offers a fairly comprehensive overview of the complexity and the emerging importance of the field, by identifying and re-examining, from different perspectives, a number of standard assumptions in clinical linguistics and in cognitive sciences. The papers encompass different issues in phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, discussed with respect to deafness, stuttering, child acquisition and impairments, SLI, William’s Syndrome deficit, fluent aphasia and agrammatism. The interdisciplinary complexity of the language/cognition interface is also explored by focusing on empirical data from different languages: Bantu, Catalan, Dutch, English, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. The aim of this volume is to stress the growing importance of the theoretical and methodological linguistic tools developed in this area; to bring under scrutiny assumptions taken for granted in recent analyses, which may not be so obvious as they may seem; to investigate how even apparently minimal choices in the description of phenomena may affect the form and complexity of the language/cognition interface.

Gastroparesis is an increasingly recognized disorder. Treatment can be difficult due to the several mechanisms for symptom production. Gastroparesis: Pathophysiology, Presentation and Treatment serves as a concise reference on this disorder that allows clinicians to quickly access and evaluate the necessary information for treating and managing patients with gastroparesis. Each chapter is written by experts in their respective area. The volume will enable the reader to better understand all aspects of this disorder. The book presents current concepts in a variety of areas opening with the epidemiology, clinical presentation and pathophysiology of gastroparesis. The natural history of patients is explored as well as evaluation of patients with suspected gastroparesis. This section includes chapters on Wireless Capsule Motility, Electrogastrography and Antroduodenal Manometry. This important resource concludes with a full section on treatment including dietary, prokinetic, antiemetic, sensory, electric stimulation, and surgical methods. New developments include the use of gastric electric stimulation for treatment, the use of SmartPill for diagnosis, and a number of new agents in development for this disorder. Gastroparesis: Pathophysiology, Presentation and Treatment is the ideal reference for gastroenterologists, and also for surgeons, endocrinologists, primary care physicians and nutritionists looking to keep pace with the latest information treatment options for their patients.

Gold and Silver Staining: Techniques in Molecular Morphology (Advances in Pathology, Microscopy, & Molecular Morphology)

 Pathology  Comments Off on Gold and Silver Staining: Techniques in Molecular Morphology (Advances in Pathology, Microscopy, & Molecular Morphology)
May 122019
 

Immunogold silver staining is one of the most sensitive techniques available for visualizing the location of antibodies and nucleotide probes that have been bounded to specific antigens or to nucleotide sequences. As gold and silver staining continues to advance research in molecular morphology, this book presents the information you need to know about the various staining methods, their useful applications, and the advantages and drawbacks of each process. Gold and Silver Staining: Techniques in Molecular Morphology provides a timely description of approaches, methods, protocols, and applications. The contributors cover the latest developments and a wide range of applications from highly sensitive detection of antigens to single copy detection of DNA and RNA. Some of the authors are “living legends” in the field and bring their expertise and experience to this fine collaboration. Written in one consistent style, each chapter includes a concise, but comprehensive introduction, step-by-step protocols with technical hints, and a discussion of results and critical steps. What differentiates this book from all others like it, is the status of the editors, who have worked on this technique from its inception and have produced innumerable publications on the topic. The other distinguishing feature is that all of the contributors are amongst the absolute foremost leaders from the United States and Europe. Gold and Silver Staining: Techniques in Molecular Morphology presents a complete overview and detailed descriptions of this technique that allows the visualization of molecules that have never been localized before and with hitherto unknown sensitivity. Not only does this book provide an excellent review of this field, but it also serves as a lab manual for those who want to carry out this technique in their laboratory and clinical work. Armed with this information, advances in this powerful field of research will ensue.
