Diagnostic Pathology: Molecular Oncology E-Book 2nd

by Mohammad A. Vasef (Author), Aaron Auerbach (Author)

Covering all aspects of molecular pathology as it relates to the transformation and pathogenesis of cancer, this award-winning volume in the Diagnostic Pathology series is an expert resource for pathologists at all levels of experience and training, both as a quick reference and as an efficient review to improve knowledge and skills. This easily accessible, point-of-care reference features templated, bulleted content that is generously illustrated with charts, graphs, tables, and color photomicrographs of histology with special stains. It offers a practical, clinical approach to examining how molecular mutations affect common medical diseases and identifies the relevant and appropriate molecular tests to perform for a complete work-up in the era of molecular-targeted therapies.

    • Provides updated information on molecular mutations in different tumors, including solid tumors and hematopoietic neoplasms, and new targeted therapies geared toward these molecular alterations


    • Discusses now widely used immunotherapy treatments, including how immunotherapy has revolutionized the treatment of many neoplasms such as breast and lung carcinomas and lymphoma


    • Features more than 2,000 annotated images throughout, including H&E stains, immunostains, and FISH images


    • Covers timely topics such as:


      • Recent advances in cancer immunotherapy, specifically in the molecular basis of immunotherapy


      • Newly discovered targeted therapies, including multiple lung carcinoma therapies now considered for patients based on existing mutations to specific genes (KRAS, ALK, BRAF, and ROS)


      • The need for integration of myeloid and lymphoid gene panels due to increased knowledge from next generation sequencing studies of new mutations and the resulting newly developed molecular targets


      • Increased usage of next generation sequencing techniques


    • Changes to hematopoietic tumor details based on revised WHO guidelines
  • Recipient of a 2016 BMA Award: Highly Commended, Pathology (previous edition)
