Abstract
"This is an essential guide to the data, basic science, outcome studies and decision-making processes involved in blood and marrow stem cell transplantation. Organized according to disease types and procedures, it contains more than 100 tables, figures and algorithms that reflect up-to-date research and give guidance on the choices between different types of chemotherapy, autologous vs. allogeneic transplantation, peripheral blood vs. bone marrow stem cells, and standard vs. experimental treatments. This new edition summarizes the research of the last four years and gives mature data for all established indications, such as acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome and Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas. New chapters discuss global trends in stem cell transplantation, cellular therapies including donor lymphocytes, and pediatric neurologic and metabolic disorders. With an expanded complications section, links to electronic databases and discussion of new drugs and alternative stem cell sources, this text belongs in every transplant unit."--Provided by publisher.

Abstract
"This practical manual provides a comprehensive yet concise guide to state-of-the-art molecular techniques and their applications. It starts with an overview of the essential principles of molecular techniques, followed by separate chapters detailing the use of these techniques in particular tissues and organs, and describing recommended treatment plans. Each chapter covers the tests available, their advantages, limitations, and use as diagnostic and prognostic tools, with key learning points at the end of each topic. Using both histologic and cytologic samples, it discusses how to interpret test results in a pathologic context and enables trainees and practising pathologists to gain an in-depth understanding of molecular diagnostic techniques and how to incorporate them into routine diagnostic practice. Aiding the daily practice of refining diagnosis, as well as offering a didactic approach, this book is an essential reference for practising pathologists and cytopathologists as well as trainees in pathology"--Provided by publisher.
