Cytogenetic Abnormalities. This guide discusses chromosomal abnormalities and how best to report and communicate lab findings in research and clinical settings. Providing a standard approach to writing cytogenetic laboratory reports, the guide further covers useful guidance on implementing International System for Human Cytogenetic Nomenclature in reports. Part one of the guide explores chromosomal, FISH, and microarray analysis in constitutional cytogenetic analyses, while part two looks at acquired abnormalities in cancers. Both sections provide illustrative examples of chromosomal abnormalities and how to communicate these findings in standardized laboratory reports.

Human Cytogenetics Malignancy And Acquired Abnormalities. The advent of molecular technologies has lead to a rapid acceleration in the cytogenetic study of malignancy and acquired abnormalities. As well as having a chapter devoted to molecular technologies (FISH, PRINS, and CGH), molecular methodology is emphasized in all chapters, for example the role of CGH in solid tumour cytogenetics. Classical techniques are not forgotten, with a detailed description of the preparation and analysis of chromosomes from bone marrow and leukaemic blood. This is followed by three chapters on the specific methodology for the cytogenetic study of myeloid leukaemia, acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, and lymphomas and lymphoproliferative disorders. Also covered are chromosome instability syndromes, mutagen-induced chromosome damage in lymphocytes and the role of cytogenetics in the assessment of haematological disorders. This book will be invaluable to any scientists using cytogenetics to study malignancy and along with its sister volume Human Cytogenetics: Constitutional Analysis will be an essential purchase for any cytogenetics laboratory. The volumes are available individually or as a set.

Hematology And Coagulation. Hematology and Coagulation is a clear and easy-to-read presentation of core topics and detailed case studies that illustrate the application of hematopathology knowledge to everyday patient care. In order to be successful, as well as to pass the American Board of Pathology examination, all pathology residents must have a good command of hematopathology, including the challenging topics of hematology and coagulation. Hematology and Coagulation meets this challenge head on. This basic primer offers practical examples of how things function in the hematopathology clinic as well as useful lists, sample questions, and a bullet-point format ideal for quick pre-board review. This book provides only the most clinically relevant examples designed to educate senior medical students, residents and fellows and "refresh" the knowledge base, without overwhelming students, residents, and clinicians. Takes a practical and easy-to-read approach to understanding hematology and coagulation at an appropriate level for both board preparation as well as a professional refresher course Covers all important clinical information found in larger textbooks in a more succinct and easy-to-understand manner Covers essential concepts in hematopathology in such a way that fellows and clinicians understand the methods without having to become specialists in the field

The Principles Of Clinical Cytogenetics. In the summer of 1989, one of us (SLG), along with his mentor, Dorothy Warb- ton, attended the Tenth International Workshop on Human Gene Mapping. The me- ing was held at Yale University in celebration of the first such event, which also took place there. This meeting was not open to the general public; one had to have contributed to mapping a gene to be permitted to attend. The posters, of course, were therefore all related to gene mapping, and many were covered with pretty, colorful pictures of a novel, fluorescent application of an old technology, in situ hybridization. Walking through the room, Dorothy remarked that, because of this new FISH technique, ch- mosomes, which had become yesterday’s news, were once again “back in style. ” Approximately three years later, a commercial genetics company launched a FISH assay for prenatal ploidy detection. A substantial number of cytogeneticists across the country reacted with a combination of outrage and panic. Many were concerned that physicians would be quick to adopt this newfangled upstart test and put us all on the unemployment line. They did not at the time realize what Dorothy instinctively already knew—that FISH would not spell the doom of the cytogenetics laboratory, but it would, rather, take it to new heights.

Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders. This publication provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the significance of cytogenetic and molecular genetic abnormalities in the chronic myeloid leukaemias and other myeloproliferative disorders. This book will therefore be an important reference text, not only for haematologists, but also for molecular geneticists and cytogeneticists, and anyone involved in leukaemia research.

Neoplastic Hematopathology. Neoplastic Hematopathology provides a concise, visual approach to guide practicing pathologists, hematopathologists, hematologists, oncologists, internists, and trainees to a clear analysis and diagnosis of myeloid and lymphoid specimens. Coverage is comprehensive and for each entity includes a short text description of the key points of the entity- definition; morphologic features; special stains, immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry techniques; differential diagnosis; diagnostic features; special issues (e.g., prognostic or other considerations to note). Images in Neoplastic Hematopathology highlight differential diagnostic features, especially the correlation and integration of standard H & E stains with molecular and immunologic techniques. Neoplastic Hematopathology: An Atlas and Concise Guide features: Clear, concise coverage across the wide range of hematopathologic entities based on the current World Health Organization (WHO) classification Topics selected on the basis of "must-know" entities for the practicing pathologist or trainee Emphasis on integration of routine and special stains with immunologic and molecular techniques, reflecting the most current standards of practice Outstanding images selected to highlight key differential points and potentially misleading variants

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss. Recurrent pregnancy loss presents a vexing clinical problem primarily for medical professionals treating patients in reproductive medicine and in maternal-fetal medicine. However, with its numerous causes and various suggested treatment options, the problem is more multidisciplinary in nature, involving gynecology, genetics, endocrinology, immunology, pediatrics, and internal medicine. Exploring basic science and clinical applications, the second edition of the bestselling text Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: Causes, Controversies, and Treatment provides an authoritative and comprehensive update on advances in the understanding and management of this troubling phenomenon. The book covers basic scientific topics such as genetics and cytokines and profiles major advances in immunology, endocrinology, and thrombotic mechanism. It discusses the methodology of clinical research and the application of evidence-based medicine to clinical practice. It also reviews various late obstetric complications, along with issues caused by extreme prematurity and possible resulting handicaps. This second edition presents new material on the latest controversies, featuring opinions from both sides of ongoing debates. It includes new chapters on autoimmunity, third party reproduction, the use of immunostimulants such as CSF, and Chinese medicine. Designed for specialists working in reproductive medicine clinics and those involved with maternal-fetal care, the book is also ideal for generalists and gynaecologists seeking a comprehensive view of developments in the field.
