Diagnostic Electron Microscopy: A Text/Atlas

Diagnostic Electron Microscopy: A Text/Atlas Lowest new price: $112.09
Lowest used price: $76.38
List price: $129.00
Author: Richard G. Dickersin

This text atlas, now in its second edition, presents in simplest form the basic diagnostic criteria used by the electron microscopist in studying neoplasms and other diseases encountered in the routine practice of pathology. Every field of electron microscopy is covered and low magnification plates are juxtaposed with higher magnifications to illustrate diagnostic features.
The largest section of the book is devoted to neoplasms as this is the area in which most diagnostic problems occur. Renal glomerular disease is another important category in which ultrastructural study may be critical in diagnosis; infectious diseases, especially those of viral, protozoan, and unusual bacterial etiologies, are a third area in which electron microscopy may be used to establish or susbstantiate a diagnosis. All of these areas are comprehensively covered with concise, readable text and more than 800 first-quality images. This book is the preeminent reference for pathologists needing current information on the role of ultrastructure in diagnostic pathology.

In Search of a Cure: A History of Pharmaceutical Discovery

Lowest new price: $68.34
Lowest used price: $35.93
List price: $55.00
Author: M. Weatherall
Brand: Brand: Oxford University Press, USA

This fascinating volume chronicles the role of therapeutics in medical practice and the emergence of the multi-million dollar pharmaceutical industry. It traces the origin of modern medicine from early individual experiments to the development of modern "miracle" drugs and vaccines. Placing this history in its social context, the book describes the profound changes that have accompanied the advent of new medicines, and the social pressures that have driven the research effort. This is also the story of the men and women who have participated in these discoveries, and the changing role of medical professionals brought about by powerful antibiotics and other modern cures. The author brings to his account a deep understanding of the subject, rooted in his experience as a physician trainee in the period before immunization for diptheria and other deadly diseases became widely available. His presentation clearly balances the benefits and risks of today's powerful pharmaceuticals, and discusses the danger of accepting treatments which have no demonstrable worth. This authoritative volume provides a rare view into scientific discovery for anyone with an interest in medicine and history.

Diagnostic Histopathology of the Bone Marrow

Diagnostic Histopathology of the Bone Marrow Lowest new price: $56.85
Lowest used price: $8.09
List price: $295.00
Author: James A. Strauchen

A succinct, single-authored text and atlas of bone marrow pathology, this book is based on over 10,000 bone marrow biopsies. Divided into seven sections, it covers indications and techniques for biopsy, normal findings, and bone marrow alterations in specific neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders and other diseases. The author approaches the practical problems and pitfalls in making particular types of diagnoses. The volume is lavishly illustrated with over 300 full-color photographs. The emphasis has been placed on the histologic interpretation of the bone marrow core biopsy, but the histopathologic findings have been integrated with clinical and laboratory features, as well as with peripheral blood and bone marrow aspiration morphology.
Morphology is, in fact, accorded special attention in this book, since it remains the "gold standard" for many hematologic diagnoses and is the appropriate point of departure for more complex diagnostic investigations. More advanced immunologic and molecular techniques are not overlooked, however, and a discussion of these newer techniques is incorporated in the analysis throughout the text. Written as an introduction and guide to the interpretation of the bone marrow biopsy, this volume is intended primarily for pathologists and pathologists-in-training, but may also be used successfully by hematologists and oncologist who perform bone marrow biopsies.
