Cytogenetic Abnormalities from the Author: S. Zneimer. 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 from the Author: Denise E. Rooney. 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.

Cancer Cytogenetics from the Author: Sverre Heim. The first three editions of this acclaimed book presented a much-needed conceptual synthesis of this rapidly moving field. Now, Cancer Cytogenetics, Fourth Edition, offers a comprehensive, expanded, and up-to-date review of recent dramatic advances in this area, incorporating a vast amount of new data from the latest basic and clinical investigations. New contributors reflecting broader international authorship and even greater expertise Greater emphasis throughout on the clinical importance and application of information about cytogenetic and molecular aberrations Includes a complete coverage of chromosome aberrations in cancer based on an assessment of the 60,000 neoplasms cytogenetically investigated to date Now produced in full color for enhanced clarity Covers how molecular genetic data (PCR-based and sequencing information) are collated with the cytogenetic data where pertinent Discusses how molecular cytogenetic data (based on studies using FISH, CGH, SNP, etc) are fused with karyotyping data to enable an as comprehensive understanding of cancer cytogenetics as is currently possible

Renal Cell Carcinoma from the Author: Brian I. Rini. Edited and written by medical oncologists and surgeons, this new reference covers all aspects of renal cell cancer from pathology and molecular genetics onto diagnosis, screening and imaging. Includes all the latest on management and treatment from medical and immunotherapy through to surgical procedures. Covers future therapeutics and supportive care. The bulk of the chapters deal with practical management of the continuum of kidney cancer ranging from the small renal mass to the metastatic patient. Different treatment approaches are discussed within the context of each of these clinical scenarios and surgical and therapeutic advances are highlighted. In addition, special populations such as patients requiring palliative care, those with brain or bone metastasis and those with inherited renal cell carcinoma are discussed.
