Molecular Basis of Thyroid Cancer (Cancer Treatment and Research)

Buy
Thyroid cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the U.S., especially among women. Given the relative success we have had in its treatment, there is a need to capitalize on it by better understanding the factors that underpin this malignancy, and exploring better strategies for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. To do so, we must take full advantage of the revolution in modern biology.

This comprehensive volume addresses the needs of a broad readership. Against a backdrop of the complexity of the origins of cancer, pathology of thyroid tumors, including lymphomas, is discussed, as are molecular genetic lesions associated with spontaneous and radiation-related thyroid tumors, diagnostic tests available to surmise tumor subtypes (including a review of the potential of DNA micro arrays), advances in therapeutics (including recombinant hTSH superagonists, allowing for better treatment of well differentiated thyroid carcinoma and its imaging), and combinations of drugs that might influence the course of poorly differentiated and anaplastic thyroid cancer. In this book, we glimpse into the promise of gene therapy in the future management of otherwise lethal anaplastic and poorly differentiated thyroid tumors. The molecular genetics of medullary thyroid cancer is considered in depth, and malignancy is used as a showcase for genetic prediction and counseling.

The Molecular Basis of Thyroid Cancer is an indispensable companion for endocrinologists (particularly those with an interest in thyroid cancer), thyroid surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, molecular oncologists, clinical biochemists, and those in biotechnology intent on the innovation of better diagnosis and therapy of cancer.

I am fortunate and privileged to be the editor of The Molecular Basis of Thyroid Cancer. I compiled a list of top scientists based on their areas of expertise in thyroid cancer whom I hoped would contribute, and received enthusiastic and positive responses. Their chapters are superb.

Throughout this project I have been supported and advised by two wonderful individuals from Kluwer: the untiring Maureen Tobin, editorial assistant and Laura Walsh, editor. They have made the task of putting this book together a pleasure.

Genetic Engineering of Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Genetic Engineering of Mesenchymal Stem Cells

MSC (mesenchymal stem cells) have been reported to initiate revascularization after injury, to facilitate engraftment of blood-forming stem cells, and to reduce the incidence of graft-vs. host disease through their immune-suppressive qualities. Finally, bone marrow-derived MSC have been reported to home to areas of solid tumor...

Fundamentals of Cryptology: A Professional Reference and Interactive Tutorial
The protection of sensitive information against unauthorized access or fraudulent changes has been of prime concern throughout the centuries. Modern communication techniques, using computers connected through networks, make all data even more vulnerable to these threats. In addition, new issues have surfaced that did not exist previously, e.g....

Virtual Networks: Pluralistic Approach for the Next Generation of Internet (ISTE)
Currently, there is a strong effort on the part of the research community in rethinking the Internet architecture to cope with its current limitations and support new requirements. Many researchers conclude that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for all user, and network provider, needs, and thus advocate a pluralist network...
