Molecular pathology of gastroenterological cancer

Author: Eiichi Tahara
Publisher: Springer Verlag
ISBN: 4431701958
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Medical

The past 20 years have seen remarkable progress in the research, diagnosis, and therapy of gastroenterological cancer. It has been shown that the development and progression of gastric and colon cancers require multiple alternations affecting DNA mismatch repair genes, oncogenes, and tumor-suppressor genes. Pathogenetic research has also demonstrated that the majority of gastrointestinal cancers express telomerase activity, with overexpression of telomerase RNA, providing powerful new tools for early detection. This volume brings together the most recent information on carcinogenesis, biology, molecular genetics, pathology, and molecular diagnosis of gastroenterological cancer, with contributions by renowned researchers from Japan and other parts of the world. Among the topics are experimental stomach carcinogenesis, molecular bases of human stomach carcinogenesis, critical determinants of human colon cancer metastasis, and telomere and telomerase in gastrointestinal cancer. Molecular Pathology of Gastroenterological Cancer is a vital source for oncologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, epidemiologists, surgeons, and other clinicians.

Release Date: 2009-06-10
Genre: Medical

Over the past two decades there has been an explosion in knowledge about the molecular pathology of human diseases which accelerated with the sequencing of the human genome in 2003. Molecular diagnostics and molecular targeted therapy have contributed to the current concept of personalized patient care that is now routine in many medical centers. As a result, general and subspecialty pathologists, clinical practitioners of all types and radiologists must now have an understanding of the basic concepts of molecular pathology and their role in new diagnostic and therapeutic applications to patient care. The Molecular Pathology Library series was created to bridge the gap between traditional basic science textbooks in molecular biology and traditional medical textbooks for organ-specific diseases. Basic Concepts of Molecular Pathology is designed as a stand-alone book to provide the pathologist, clinician or radiologist with a concise review of the essential terminology, concepts and tools of molecular biology that are applied to the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases in the age of personalized medicine. Those medical practitioners, residents, fellows and students who need to refer to the terminology and concepts of molecular pathology in their patient care will find the Basic Concepts of Molecular Pathology to be a succinct, portable, user-friendly aid in their practice and studies. The service-based physician will find this handy reference to be valuable at the laboratory benchside, at the patient bedside, at multidisciplinary patient care conferences or as a review for examinations.
