Molecular Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases

Molecular Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases
(Methods in Molecular Medicine)
Udo Reischl
ISBN-10: 0896034852
ISBN-13: 978-0896034853

A comprehensive and up-to-date set of basic and advanced methods that illuminates the principles of molecular diagnostics and allows researchers to establish assay systems tailored to their specific needs. This unique collection has been thoroughly updated and expanded and covers the latest strategies for identifying novel diagnostic markers, epitope mapping, and the production and purification of recombinant antigens and their use as diagnostic reagents in immunological assays. This new edition places significant emphasis on bioinformatics and proteomics and the characterization and modification of proteins. It also includes promising techniques based on recent developments in antibody engineering and on the use of biosensors. Rather than focusing on particular infectious agents, this book focuses on the techniques that can be used and tailored to accomplish any kind of molecular diagnostic application in the clinical laboratory, thus making it an essential book for all laboratory disagnosticians.


Molecular Diagnosis of Genetic Diseases

Molecular Diagnosis of Genetic Diseases
(Methods in Molecular Medicine)
Rob Elles

Expert clinical investigators present their best and most reliable methods for the molecular diagnosis of common genetic disorders. The methods-organized by disease or diagnostic area-are robust and reproducible. They contain not only essential day-to-day benchtop wisdom and instruction, but also offer possibilities for introducing new molecular genetic diagnostic tests, as well as invaluable advice on controls, quality standards, and interpretation. Among the genetic diseases discussed are Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy, familial adenomatous polyposis, X-chromosome inactivation, Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes, Huntington's disease, myotonic dystrophy, fragile X disease, cystic fibrosis, familial hypochloresterolemia, and the hemoglobinopathies.

ISBN-10: 0470723130
ISBN-13: 978-0470723135

In its Fifth Edition, this classic book retains its traditional strength of relating molecular physiology to understanding disease pathology and treatment as it explores the current state and future direction of hepatology. Painstakingly revised, this edition includes 60 new chapters. As in previous editions, a section called Horizons summarizes advances of extraordinary nature in areas expected to have a substantial impact on hepatology. The Fifth Edition’s Horizons section includes emerging topics such as tissue engineering of the liver, liver-directed gene therapy, decoding the liver cancer genome, and imaging cellular proteins and structure. To preserve essential background information which has not changed while making room for the panoply of major new contributions to understanding of liver disease, 14 chapters from the previous edition are freely available online at To view these chapters visit -

ISBN-10: 0387254196
ISBN-13: 978-0387254197

Although, Phagocytosis was first described nearly 120 year ago, we are just recently beginning to understand the molecules that phagocytic cells use to bring about this complex cell function. Molecular Mechanisms of Phagocytosis was prepared as a series of up-to-date essays (chapters) that describe the present knowledge on the various steps of the phagocytic process from initial cell contact, through internalization of the foreign particle, to the final phagosome formation where the phagocytosed particle is destroyed.
