Pancreas: Pathological Practice and Research, 1st ed. 2007

Pancreas Pathological Practice and Research 2007
K. Suda
ISBN-10: 3805582404
ISBN-13: 978-3805582407

The pancreas is an unobtrusive organ, and the prospects and possibilities of solving the physiological and pathological nature of its behavior are numerous. When conducting a pathological study or an investigation of the pancreas, it is important to consider its anatomical and embryological basis as well as the occurrence of age-related frequent lesions. Concerning the latter, both mucous cell hyperplasia and the cystic dilatation of the branch pancreatic duct result in the modification of the tissue surrounding it, i.e. atrophy. Moreover, pathological changes in the pancreas are focal or patchy in nature, especially in non-tumorous lesions, and are related to its neighboring or adjacent organs. Based on the experience and knowledge of its contributors, this publication describes in detail various pathological changes in the behavior of the pancreas. Pathologists, physicians and surgeons who are interested in the pancreas will find it a useful reference source both for their daily work as well as for future research.

Essential Specimens from PATHOLOGY MUSEUM, 2006

Essential Specimens from PATHOLOGY MUSEUM,
A Companion Photo-CD to
Textbook of Pathology 5th Edition (Reprint 2006)
 Harsh Mohan

It has long been felt by the teachers and the students of Pathology that there is a need for a resource material for learning essential museum specimens commonly used for teaching and evaluation of undergraduate students. This is particularly required for orienting the students properly by correlation of pathology learnt in theory classes and microscopic pathology learnt from seeing glass slides in practical classes with the museum specimens. Besides, discussion of gross pathology on mounted museum specimens also constitutes an evaluation system in viva-voce at the time of practical examination of most universities/ medical institutions.

Both the standard somatic hybridization technique and recombinant techniques, including the use of phage libraries, for the preparation of rodent and human monoclonal antibodies are described. Protocols for both the small and large scale production are detailed, as well as purification and labelling (with both radioisotopes and non-radioisotopes) methods. The applications of monoclonal antibodies in immunoblotting, enzyme linked immunoassays, immunofluorescence, and FACS analysis are all covered in detail. Finally protocols are given for the use of monoclonal antibodies in rheumatoid arthritis, tissue typing, detecting DNA modified during chemotherapy, and in the clinical analysis of transplantation samples for malignancy. This book will therefore be an invaluable laboratory companion to anyone using monoclonal antibodies in their research.

Biomarkers for Psychiatric Disorders, 1st ed. 2008

Biomarkers for Psychiatric Disorders 2008
Chris Turck
ISBN-10: 0387792503
ISBN-13: 978-0387792507

Biomarkers hold immense promise for the early detection of disease. Unlike other disorders like diabetes and heart disease where a limited number of biological markers are at hand that allow the physician to come up with a reliable diagnosis, there are currently no such markers available for affective disorders. As in any other disease area a major goal is therefore the identification of early markers that can categorize subsets of subjects in a consistent manner. This will allow a more precise definition and categorization of affective disorders and in turn facilitate investigations of the pathogenesis of the diseases and enhance our ability for treatment.

Biomarkers In Heart Disease. 1st ed. 2008

Biomarkers In Heart Disease 2008
(American Heart Association Clinical Series)
James de Lemos
ISBN-10: 1405175710
ISBN-13: 978-1405175715

Biomarkers in Heart Disease is the first title in the AHA Clinical Series and is aimed at meeting the needs of clinicians, providing cardiologists, internists, emergency physicians, laboratorians, and other healthcare providers with a clear understanding of the role of biomarkers in contemporary cardiovascular medicine.
The book covers both the strengths and pitfalls of currently available markers, and provides information on the most promising biomarkers that are likely to impact practice in the next few years. It is divided into four parts, organized around clinical scenarios rather than individual biomarkers.
This book will help the practicing physician decide which biomarkers to measure, when to measure them, how to interpret the results and how to make decisions based on the test result.
