Fine Needle Biopsy of Superficial and Deep Masses, 1st ed. 2009

Fine-Needle Biopsy of Superficial and Deep Masses: Interventional Approach and Interpretation Methodology by Pattern Recognition
Giorgio Gherardi
ISBN-10: 9788847014329
ISBN-13: 978-8847014329

Needle biopsy is a simple, reliable, inexpensive, well-tolerated, and minimally invasive procedure for the diagnosis of tumors, both in superficial and in deep sites. Today, following the shift to a more conservative approach to tumor treatment, and in this era of "tailored" or "targeted" oncological therapies, the use of needle biopsy in the diagnosis of neoplasia, at all phases of the disease, is expected to increase dramatically. The efficacy of this technique is, however, strongly influenced by the experience of the physician performing the technique and by the pathologist’s ability to interpret the results derived from the minimal cellular harvest. The aim of this volume is to provide all of the information and insight needed to obtain a correct diagnosis based on needle biopsy evaluation. In a problem-oriented approach, the author describes the optimal interventional maneuver and biopsy-sample triage for all types of lesions. The reader is then guided through the interpretation of all possible cytological findings based on a pattern-analysis methodology. The integration of this information with clinical and preanalytical data is the best approach to obtain a correct diagnosis.

A Color Atlas of Comparative Pathology of Pulmonary Tuberculosis, 1st ed. 2011

A Color Atlas of Comparative Pathology of Pulmonary Tuberculosis
Franz Joel Leong, Veronique Dartois and Thomas Dick
ISBN-10: 1439835276
ISBN-13: 978-1439835272

An annual death toll of 2 million, coupled with rising drug resistance, highlights the need for the development of new drugs, better diagnostics, and a tuberculosis (TB) vaccine. Addressing these key issues, A Color Atlas of Comparative Pathology of Pulmonary Tuberculosis introduces TB histopathology to the non-histopathologists, students, scientists, and doctors working, learning, and teaching in the field of TB. It contains 100 color photographs and illustrations that bring clarity to the information presented. The atlas takes the unusual approach of covering multiple species histopathology, arguably the first and quite possibly the only resource to do so. It provides a simple, annotated, and visual presentation of the comparative histopathology of TB in human and animal models. The editors have compiled information that helps TB scientists to distinguish between the features of all major animal models available and to use them with their strengths and limitations in mind. The book provides guidance for selecting the best animal model(s) to answer specific questions and to test the efficacy of drug candidates.

MicroRNA and Cancer: Methods and Protocols, 1st ed. 2011

MicroRNA and Cancer: Methods and Protocols
(Methods in Molecular Biology)
Wei Wu
ISBN-10: 1607618621
ISBN-13: 978-1607618621

The tiny microRNAs (miRNAs) can have huge impacts on the regulation of a variety of genes and play crucial roles in the fundamental cellular processes. Recent miRNA studies change the landscape of cancer genetics by scrutinizing the alterations of genome-wide miRNA expressions in most common cancers and their regulatory functions during the development of cancer. The connections between miRNAs and cancer are widespread enough to warrant more comprehensive investigations in the systems biology perspective. In MicroRNA and Cancer: Methods and Protocols, internationally renowned experts provide the latest miRNA knowledge, the various techniques and methodologies currently available for cancer research application. Ranging from the fundamental concepts to practical applications, this book presents: • Overview of microRNA biogenesis, computational prediction of new miRNAs in the cancer genome, and miRNA-based therapeutic approaches for cancer treatment • Detailed experimental protocols in miRNA detection with novel and high-throughput technology, miRNA library cloning, miRNA epigenetic regulation, and miRNA pathway study • Stepwise computational and bioinformatic procedures for miRNA complex networks in cancer genomes with a variety of softwares and programs • Cross-cited notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls Authoritative and cutting-edge, MicroRNA and Cancer: Methods and Protocols serves researchers with the basic principles of experimental and computational methods for microRNA study in cancer research and provides a firm grounding for those who wish to further develop their own applications and tailor them to their own specific research needs.

Molecular Methods for Virus Detection, 1st ed. 1995

Molecular Methods for Virus Detection
Danny L. Wiedbrauk and Daniel H. Farkas
ISBN-10: 0127489207
ISBN-13: 978-0127489209

Molecular diagnostic procedures have been described in a number of recent books and articles. However, these publications have not focused on virus detection, nor have they provided practical protocols for the newer molecular methods.
Written by the inventors or principal developers of these technologies, Molecular Methods for Virus Detection provides both reviews of individual methods and instructions for detecting virus nucleic acid sequences in clinical specimens. Each procedure includes quality assurance protocols that are often ignored by other methodology books. Molecular Methods for Virus Detection provides clinically relevant procedures for many of the newer diagnostic methodologies.

Key Features
  • * Provides state-of-the-art PCR methods for amplification, quantitation, in situ hybridization, and multiplex reactions
  • * Goes beyond PCR with protocols for 3SR, NASBA, LCR, SDA, and LAT
  • * Covers important virus detection methods such as in situ hybridization; Southern, dot, and slot blots; branched chain signal amplification; and chemiluminescence
  • * Includes quality control information crucial in research and clinical laboratories
  • * Most chapters are written by the inventors and principal developers of the methodologies
  • * Includes color plates, 77 figures, and 18 tables
