The text provides cutting-edge, practical information on the science of oncology and the multimodality treatment of every cancer type. To ensure a balanced, multidisciplinary approach, each major treatment chapter is co-authored by a surgeon, a medical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist. Treatment of each cancer type is discussed by stage, with coordinated guidelines on the role of each treatment modality at each stage. Each major treatment section is preceded by an updated brief chapter describing the molecular biology of the cancer and the implications of molecular biology for patient management. Full consideration is also given to cancer prevention, screening, palliative care, supportive oncology, and quality of life issues.

Natural Killer Cells: At the Forefront of Modern Immunology, 1st ed. 2010




Natural Killer Cells: At the Forefront of Modern Immunology
Jacques Zimmer
ISBN-10: 3642023088
ISBN-13: 978-3642023088
Springer





Natural killer (NK) cells have been at the forefront of immunology for two decades. During that time, a great amount of information about these cells has been obtained. They are important in antiinfectious and antitumoral defense and shape the adaptive immune response. In addition, they can act as immunoregulatory cells. In recent years, the therapeutic potential of NK cells in cancer immunotherapy has become increasingly evident. This book describes in detail current knowledge about NK cells and covers a broad range of NK cell-related topics, including those that are not frequently reviewed, e.g. NK cells and allergy or NK cells and skin diseases.

Oxford University Press




The field of macrophage research has grown enormously since publication of the first edition of this book. The Macrophage 2e provides a unique comprehensive review of the current scientific knowledge of the multifaceted role of this important and intriguiging cell in health and disease. In 16 chapters by experts in the field it covers the basic biology and diverse functions of macrophages in specific diseases and the complex of interactions between macrophages and other cells. Ranging from their role in the defense against pathogens, their role as hosts for pathogens (including HIV), their complex roles in diseases such as arthritis and cancer, and their potential for use in novel gene therapy approaches to disease treatment, the book gives an up to the minute account of active macrophage research. The editors have intentionally included a broad rangeof topics that will appeal not only to immunologists and cell biologists but will also be of interest to those working in the specific disease areas covered.

Angiogenesis in Inflammation: Mechanisms and Clinical Correlates, 1st ed. 2008



Angiogenesis in Inflammation: Mechanisms and Clinical Correlates
(Progress in Inflammation Research)
Michael P. Seed and David A. Walsh
ISBN-10: 3764376260
ISBN-13: 978-3764376260
Birkhäuser Basel




Angiogenesis in Inflammation: Mechanisms and Clinical Correlates develops current knowledge on the mechanisms at the molecular and cellular levels as they relate to inflammation, including acute and chronic inflammation, neurogenic initiation, and the role of the multiple cellular components that comprise inflammation: granulocytes, macrophages, fibroblasts, dendritic cells and lymphocytes. This is related to inflammatory diseases: not only the familiar angiogenesis dependent diseases of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis, but also loci such as the lung, gastric ulcers, the eye with uveitis, wound healing and periodontal disease and their therapy. The book shows how this knowledge may be used in the discovery of novel therapeutics. It brings together experts in each of these fields to link the molecular and cellular processes in angiogenesis to those of inflammation and disease, culminating in a discourse on areas for future therapies.

    ISBN-13: 978-0340759226

    Biopsy Pathology in Colorectal Disease shows how the practising pathologist can extract the maximum of diagnostic value from biopsies of the colon, rectum and anus. With the advances in colonoscopic mucosal biopsy techniques these are amongst the most frequently encountered specimens in hospital histopathology departments. This new edition provides practising pathologists and those in allied disciplines with a thorough guide to the diagnosis of colorectal conditions, both common and rare, and offers expert guidance in the handling of biopsy specimens. The most valuable information for diagnostic interpretation of the various types of inflammatory disease is presented clearly and succinctly, minimizing the use of non-diagnostic terms such as non-specific colitis. Optimal ways of handling and examining polyps, the assessment of biopsies in motility disorders and the interpretation of biopsies of anal lesions are described. A rational classification and practical approach to dysplasia is presented. The early chapters describe how to recognize the many different features, both normal and abnormal, which can be regarded as signposts to diagnosis.The significance of these diagnostic signposts is briefly described and cross referenced to later chapters, in which the histological features of the specific diseases are covered in greater depth.

    ISBN-10: 3805563833
    ISBN-13: 978-3805563833
    S. Karger AG





    This book reviews current opinions of the role of fine-needle biopsy (FNB) in the diagnosis of both diffuse and nodular thyroid disease and presents cytological diagnostic criteria and histological correlation for most entities. The history of FNB of the thyroid is briefly reviewed, followed by a summary of basic anatomical and physiological data. Its role in the clinical diagnosis of thyroid disease with an emphasis on the solitary nodule is analyzed in some depth based on a review of the literature. The techniques of sampling and processing of samples are described, including the use and promises of new ancillary techniques such as proton magnetic resonance. The main part of the book is devoted to the cytological identification of different cell types in thyroid smears and to the diagnostic criteria, the differential diagnosis and the diagnostic problems of most pathological processes encountered in the thyroid. Nearly 200 micrographs illustrate the cytological appearances and their histological correlation. Intended as a practical handbook to use by the microscope in routine diagnostic work, this book is primarily aimed at cytopathologists and cytotechnologists. It should also be a valuable aid for anatomical pathologists, endocrinologists and endocrine surgeons in understanding the usefulness, reliability and limitations of cytology in the diagnosis of thyroid disease.
