Basic Concepts of Molecular Pathology (Report)

This month’s issue of the Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine includes a unique special section on “Molecular Signatures of Lung and Pleural Tumors” that represents the proceedings of a special Joint Symposium of the European Working Groups for Molecular Pathology and Pulmonary Pathology at the 21st European Congress of Pathology in Istanbul, Turkey, in […]

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy, Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment, Innovative Medical Research at the Molecular Scale

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology: Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy, Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment, Innovative Medical Research at the Molecular Scale

This compendium of official government documents provides a thorough overview of the environmental, health, and safety aspects of nanotechnology. The same unique properties that characterize nanomaterials enabling new applications also carry potential risks to human health and the environment. To maximize benefits and minimize potential risks from nanotechnology, the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) agencies have […]

Molecular Medical Parasitology

Molecular Medical Parasitology

A valuable, new source, Molecular Medical Parasitology is the only text of its kind — one that applies broad concepts and current scientific advances from both molecular biology and biochemistry to the study of parasitic organisms. An internationally renowned team of scientists and physicians places parasites in their broad biological contexts while still emphasizing the […]

Molecular Genetics of Kidney Cancer: Implications for the Physician.

Molecular Genetics of Kidney Cancer: Implications for the Physician.

This year it is estimated that 30,000 Americans will be diagnosed with kidney cancer and 12,500 will die of the disease. Both the incidence rate and the mortality rate are increasing; because of the rapid rise, kidney cancer is on the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) watch list. The increases cannot be explained by better detection […]

Haematological & Molecular Profile of Acute Myelogenous Leukaemia in India (Report)

Haematological & Molecular Profile of Acute Myelogenous Leukaemia in India (Report)

Background & objectives: Recurrent balanced translocations are generally recognized to be a major parameter for prognostication in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). The chromosomal translocation t(15;17) results in PML/RAR [alpha] fusion gene, t(8;21) results in AML1/ETO fusion gene and Inv 16 generates CBF [beta]/MYH11 fusion gene. Patients with these mutations have a good prognosis unlike abnormalities […]
