|Bone Marrow Transplantation

Author: Stephen J. Forman
Bone marrow transplantation has come of age and is now a treatment of choice in many kinds of cancer. It is thus of great interest in the hematological and oncological communities with an increased use of the procedure to current hematological deficiencies and other disorders. There is a 20-year experience of allogeneic and a 10-year experience with BMT. Most of the existing literature dealing with bone marrow transplantation is either symposia or seminar proceedings or deal with advances in BMT. This is the first comprehensive reference which deals with allogeneic and autologous transplantation, hematologic malignancy and solid tumors and non-malignant diseases, as well as the basic science, complications, techniques, and so on

|126: Coagulation and Flocculation, Second Edition (Surfactant Science)
Lowest new price: $228.68
Lowest used price: $496.53
List price: $253.00
First published in 1993, Coagulation and Flocculation is a practical reference for the researchers in the field of the stabilization and destabilization of fine solid dispersions. By omitting chapters that remained unchanged from the first edition, the editors of this second edition completely update, rewrite, and expand upon all chapters to reflect a decade of the latest advances in both theoretical and application aspects of the field.
The authors provide expanded material that includes dissociation from a solid surface with independent sites; improvements to the Gouy-Chapman model; electrical double layer, surface ionization, and surface heterogeneity; thin liquid films and modeling of a semi-batch process using microprocesses probabilities; and clay mineral intracrystalline reactions, applications, and gelation. New chapters cover homopolymers and their effect on colloid stability, including never before published figures and equations; the stability of suspensions in the presence of surfactants, polymers, and mixtures; and the flocculation and dewatering of fine-particle suspensions, emphasizing floc formation, growth, structure, and applications.
The second edition of Coagulation and Flocculation effectively captures both the theoretical and application aspects of the latest advances in the evolving field of solid dispersions, suspensions, and mixtures.
|Immunodiagnostics: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series)
Lowest new price: $9.84
Lowest used price: $3.91
List price: $125.00
Immunodiagnostic tests are analytical methods that use antibodies as reagents whose results are used to aid diagnosis and are widely used in many scientific disciplines and in many different ways. Perhaps the most widespread and obvious use is in clinical applications, but immunodiagnostic tests are also used in other fields such as forensic science and environmental and food analysis. The different types of test range from simple manual methods to fully automated systems with sophisticated integrated detection. Immunodiagnostics: A Practical Approach starts off by explaining the principles and development of immunodiagnostic tests, specifically the use of radioisotopes as tracers. Chapter 2 explains the use of solid-phase supports to bind immunoreagents. Enzymes are widely used as labels in immunoassays and their use with colourimetric, fluorimetric, and chemiluminescent detection systems is described. The use of enzymes as labels reflects the move away from radioisotopes and one of the most powerful non- radioisotopic procedures is the time-resolved fluorescence assay. Enzymes can also be used as a simple method of obtaining high performance from immunodiagnostics and this application is covered later in the book. The next set of techniques to be described are light scattering techniques, which can be used in either simple manual assays or in sophisticated automated procedures. The penultimate chapter describes the principles of automation of immunodiagnostic tests. The last topic to be discussed is that of quality assurance.

|Prognostic Markers in Hematologic Oncology
Lowest new price: $37.81
Lowest used price: $3.35
List price: $289.95
Author: Wojciech Gorczyca
Effective treatment of the tumors of the hematopoietic system now often depends on an exact prognosis for the disorder concerned, and so the hematopathologist can give vital direction to the hematologic or oncologic clinician. Prognostic Markers in Hematologic Oncology comprehensively presents the numerous predictive and prognostic parameters in the practice of oncologic haematology and underlines their clinical relevance.

An accurate, inexpensive, and noninvasive method for the early diagnosis of cancer has been something of a holy grail among cancer researchers, but until recently a method meeting all three criteria has been elusive. Nucleic acids were first discovered in circulation in 1948, but it was not until the 1960s and 70s that patients with autoimmune disease and cancer were discovered to have higher levels of circulating DNA than were detected in in healthy persons.
The focus in this volume is on three major applications of the circulating nucleic acids detection method: cancer, fetal medicine, and diseases such as diabetes, stroke, and myocardial infarction. In addition, there are reports on the biology and origins of circulating DNA and RNA and on improved methods for the detection of nucleic acids in plasma and serum.
The circulating DNA found in cancer patients has many characteristics in common with their tumors, which made it an attractive candidate for use in the diagnosis and management of patients with malignancies. This method can also be applied to the assessment of the sublinical tumor burden in cancer patients, thus reducing the risk of unnecessary chemotherapy.
Detection of nucleic acids circulating in maternal serum means that fetal diagnosis may be possible without resorting to the more dangerous and invasive methods now used (e.g., amniotic fluid and chorionic villus sampling). Detection of problems in the pregnancy such as preeclampsia and intrauterine growth retardation may also become possible through maternal blood samples.
In diabetic patients, circulating nucleic acids can be used for the early detection of developments such as retinopathy.
The benefits of using circulating nucleic acids in the diagnosis and management of cancer and chronic disease will be realized through earlier detection by means of this less expensive and less invasive testing technique and through its potential for closer monitoring of the disease.

Brand: Brand: Humana Press
This complete updating and expansion of a highly praised survey of the molecular basis of cancer reflects emerging knowledge coming from genomics, proteomics, chemoprevention strategies, new molecular targets, therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, and innovative cytotoxic and cytostatic small molecular weight compounds. New topics of special interest include the combining of molecular diagnostics (expression profiling of genes and proteins) with developmental therapeutics and the "binary state" concept (active/inactive) that seeks more relevant targets within the global molecular matrix of a given cancer. The book looks forward to new strategies that will not just attempt to "kill" cancer cells and "cure" cancers forever, but to hit those molecular targets to reduce the proliferative advantage of cancer cells and abolish or diminish their metastatic properties.
