Lymph Node Pathology for Clinicians

 Pathology  Comments Off on Lymph Node Pathology for Clinicians
Apr 292019
 

Lymph node pathology is a complex and rapidly evolving field that requires integration of morphologic findings with a number of ancillary studies, as well as clinical information, to diagnose neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematopoietic disorders. Lymphomas are currently classified according to the 2016 Revision of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification, which emphasizes, and for some diagnoses mandates, the integration of clinical information in diagnostic decision making. Successful collaboration and teamwork between pathology and clinical specialties (especially hematology/oncology) are paramount for excellent patient care. In addition to diagnosis, pathology plays a significant role in lymphoma prognostication and therefore contributes to patient’s management and follow-up.

Lymph Node Pathology for Clinicians provides a concise overview of different entities in lymph node pathology with the primary audience being clinicians. Not all entities are covered, but, rather, the most common and/or clinically most relevant ones were included. This text is intended as a quick reference for a clinician to become familiar with pathologic aspects of lymphomas and the thought process of a pathologist. Particular consideration is given to relevant diagnostic and prognostic ancillary studies. Organized with an interdisciplinary approach for effective management of lymph node disorders, this text aims to educate our clinical colleagues on the most important aspects of lymph node pathology.

Comparative Pathophysiology and Toxicology of Cyclooxygenases

 Pathology, Physiology, Toxicology  Comments Off on Comparative Pathophysiology and Toxicology of Cyclooxygenases
Apr 172019
 


The first thorough review of cyclooxygenase inhibitors, including their toxicity mechanisms and toxicopathological risks

Cyclooxygenases (COXs) are enzymes responsible for the formation of an important class of biological mediators called prostanoids. Prostanoids such as prostaglandins mediate inflammatory and anaphylactic reactions. For those suffering from inflammation and pain, the pharmacological inhibition of COXs, with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, can provide relief. Yet the use of NSAIDs can trigger toxicological effects as well, leading to potential health risks.

Comparative Pathophysiology and Toxicology of Cyclooxygenases provides a comprehensive overview of how COX inhibitors affect various bodily systems, specifically the toxicity mechanisms triggered when the COX enzyme is inhibited. The book provides an introduction to the discovery of cyclooxygenases, their use as therapeutic agents, as well as an historical perspective. Shedding light on the differences in expression, pathophysiology, and toxicology of COX inhibitors across species, the book offers a systematic examination of the effects and pathophysiology of COX inhibitors and their mechanisms of toxicity, beginning with the GI tract. Subsequent chapters cover:

The pathophysiology of COX inhibition on bone, tendon, and ligament healing
COX inhibitors and renal system pathophysiology and mechanisms of toxicity
The pathophysiologic role of COX inhibition in the ocular system
COX inhibition and the respiratory and cardiovascular systems

The book also sheds light on the latest research devoted to developing COX inhibitors with no adverse side-effects. The first book to offer a thorough comparative look at the toxicological effects of COX inhibitors throughout the body, this invaluable resource will help advance the research and development of safer and more effective COX drugs.

How Pathogenic Viruses Think: Making Sense of Virology

 Pathology  Comments Off on How Pathogenic Viruses Think: Making Sense of Virology
Apr 032019
 

Over the past decade, the amount of data on viruses has grown dramatically. How can a virology student possibly make sense of all this information? In How Pathogenic Viruses Think, Second Edition, Dr. Sompayrac introduces an “organizing principle” – a paradigm to use to cut through all the details and focus on what’s important. He demonstrates the use of this paradigm by “interviewing” twelve medically important viruses. During these interviews, each virus is encouraged to disclose not only what it does, but why it does it. And when a “talking virus” reveals its secrets, they are hard to forget!
How Pathogenic Viruses Think covers the essential elements of virus-host interactions with descriptive graphics, helpful mnemonic tactics for retaining the information, and brief reviews of important concepts. It is an ideal book to help medical, science, and nursing students make sense of this complex subject.
Example:
Interviewer: I always ask the viruses I interview, “How do you attack your hosts, and why have you chosen that route?”
Flu Virus: I favor the respiratory route.
Interviewer: Okay, but why? For example, why not enter via the digestive tract?
Flu Virus: Are you kidding me? Do I look like a dumb virus to you? My Uncle Harold tried the digestive tract once, and got as far as the stomach before the acid in there ate him alive! Not me. I take the easy way in. The respiratory route of infection provides direct access to my favorite target cells – the epithelial cells which line the human airway.

Neural Tube Defects: Prevalence, Pathogenesis and Prevention

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Pathology  Comments Off on Neural Tube Defects: Prevalence, Pathogenesis and Prevention
Mar 302019
 

 

Neural Tube Defects (NTDs) are congenital malformations of the central nervous system caused by partial or complete failure of the neural tube to close, within 28 days of conception. They represent the second most frequent cause of congenital abnormality. In this book, the authors discuss the prevalence, pathogenesis and prevention of neural tube defects. Topics include preconception folic acid as a primary prevention tool for NTD and its risk assessment; understanding and preventing folic acid-resistant neural tube defects; knowledge of the cellular mechanisms responsible for normal neural tube formation in comprehending and preventing NTDs; developmental delay in interneuron, motor neuron, sensory tract, and synapse formation in chick spina bifida; and an examination of whether neural tube defects lead to structural alterations in the urinary and genital organs in human fetuses.
