The past two decades have seen an ever accelerating growth in knowledge about molecular pathology of human diseases, which received a large boost with the sequencing of the human genome in 2003. Mole- lar diagnostics, molecular targeted therapy, and genetic therapy are now routine in many medical centers. The molecular field now impacts every field in medicine, whether clinical research or routine patient care. There is a great need for basic researchers to understand the potential clinical implications of their research whereas private practice clinicians of all types (general internal medicine and internal medicine specialists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, pediatricians, family practitioners), clinical inves- gators, pathologists and medical laboratory directors, and radiologists require a basic understanding of the fundamentals of molecular pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment for their patients. Traditional textbooks in molecular biology deal with basic science and are not readily applicable to the medical setting. Most medical textbooks that include a mention of molecular pathology in the clinical setting are limited in scope and assume that the reader already has a working knowledge of the basic science of molecular biology. Other texts emphasize technology and testing procedures without integrating the clinical perspective. There is an urgent need for a text that fills the gap between basic science books and clinical practice.

It discusses how to integrate newer diagnostic modalities with "classic" histologic approaches; evaluates their value and limitations in diagnosing the specific pathologic entitles of each organ system; considers both diagnostic and prognostic applications; and explains how these specialized techniques provide insights into the molecular pathogenesis of disease, and how they will be used in conjunction with diagnostic products intended solely to guide therapy."--BOOK JACKET.

Notable practitioners describe how laboratory medicine is practiced today and illuminate how it will function tomorrow as the revolutionary advances afforded by molecular diagnostics become increasingly central to effective analysis. Proceeding from a discussion of elementary nucleic acid technology to a review of the more advanced techniques, the distinguished contributors lay the groundwork for a comprehensive understanding of their applications throughout clinical medicine. The result is a detailed description of those molecular technologies currently used in diagnostic laboratories, as well as those that seem particularly promising. Detailed discussions of specific clinical applications include those for cancer, hematological malignancies, cardiovascular disease, and neuromuscular, endocrine, and infectious diseases.

Pediatric endocrinology has made great advances in the nearly thirty years since the last edition of this text in 1965. Genetics has become a most important field in understanding endocrine disorders, and cytogenetics and molecular genetics continuously reveal the finer aspects of genetic regulation. The descriptional aspects of growth and pubertal development have made tremendous progress, and more and more of the regulation of growth and puberty is understood. Immunology and the biologies have significantly increased the understanding of the patho-physiology of endocrine disorders and have added greatly to our therapeutic armamentarium. All of these aspects, as well as technical aspects such as imaging technics, are fully covered in the present new edition. Over thirty experts in their respective endocrine specialties have contributed to this edition. They have included many clinical descriptions that will be helpful to pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, housestaff, and students. The organi zation of the book into text and illustration (atlas) components has been retained. In this way the theoretical aspects and clinical aspects of endocrine disorders are fully retained. In summary, the book covers much wider aspects of pediatric endocrinology and neighboring fields than any other book in pediatric endocrinology and still keeps the original flavor of the clinical teacher, Lawson Wilkins.

Molecular Pathology: The Molecular Basis of Human Disease provides a current and comprehensive view of the molecular basis and mechanisms of human disease. Combining accepted principles with broader theoretical concepts and with contributions from a group of experts, the book looks into disease processes in the context of traditional pathology and their implications for translational molecular medicine. It also discusses concepts in molecular biology and genetics, recent scientific and technological advances in modern pathology, the concept of ""molecular pathogenesis"" of disease, and how disease evolves from normal cells and tissues due to perturbations in molecular pathways. The book describes the integration of molecular and cellular pathogenesis using a bioinformatics approach and a systems biology approach to disease pathogenesis. It also discusses current and future strategies in molecular diagnosis of human disease, and the impact of molecular diagnosis on treatment decisions and the practice of personalized medicine. This book is a valuable resource for students, biomedical researchers, practicing physician-scientists who undertake disease-related basic science and translational research, and pathology residents and other postdoctoral fellows. * Exam Master® web site will host "Self-assessment" questions that students can use to study for the molecular section of the board exam * Companion Web Site – will host a complete set of PowerPoint slides: to include images from the book and additional images for teaching; course materials; lecture materials * Teaches from the perspective of “integrative systems biology, which encompasses the intersection of all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to understanding human disease * Outlines the principles and practice of molecular pathology * Explains the practice of “molecular medicine and the translational aspects of molecular pathology
