Abstract
This pocket guide is a single-volume source of the most common and important formulas and laboratory values used in the daily practice of acute care and critical care medicine. Information is presented in outline format and as tables, graphics, and algorithms to facilitate quick look up. Acute and Critical Care Formulas and Laboratory Values is designed to help clinicians interpret clinical data, apply formulas, understand laboratory values, and integrate this information with their knowledge of pathophysiology to promote the delivery of evidence-based care. Essential formulas and laboratory values. Multiple ways to derive a value, where appropriate. Non-clinical formulas useful for understanding physiologic concepts or that underlie diagnostic tests or clinical measurement.

Abstract
This text focuses on all aspects of non-gynecologic cytopathology, from key features of benign and malignant lesions, to diagnostic pearls and ancillary testing. Although this book is written by multiple authors, all chapters follow a similar format: brief introduction of the specific organ/system (including types of specimens and techniques to obtain samples), description of normal findings, and a practical approach to diagnose benign and malignant lesions. Key cytomorphological features, current terminology and molecular diagnostic tests are also highlighted within this volume. The Atlas of Non-Gynecologic Cytology is a practical resource for cytotechnologists, cytopathologists, and pathologists who are practicing general surgical pathology and cytopathology. The book is also a valued text for medical students, residents, fellows, and other allied health personnel who take care and/or treat patients based on the histological diagnosis of diseases.

Abstract
This concise book examines clinically relevant issues relating to the ways in which bone marrow, cord blood and apheresis products, are processed and stored for the purpose of Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy. The twin aims are to offer up-to-date content covering a wide spectrum of topics and controversies and to provide practitioners in the field of transplant and cell therapy with practical, immediately applicable information from the internationally experts in the field. Each chapter focuses on a particular subject, and numerous working tables, algorithms, and figures are included. Whenever appropriate, the reader's attention is drawn to the availability of potentially high-impact clinical trials and expert practices. The authors are all experts who have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the topics that they address. The book will appeal to clinical and laboratory personnels, residents, fellows, and faculty members responsible for the care of hematopoietic cell transplant products and patients. Its format ensures that it will also serve as a robust, engaging tool to aid vital activities in every hematology and oncology trainee's daily work.

Abstract
This book sheds new light on research into liquid biopsy biomarkers for cancer screening. The chapters in the first half address exosomes, circulating cell-free DNA and autoantibodies, and main solid cancers, along with companion biomarkers – all of which serve as the basis for exploring key research questions for future clinical trials in the book’s second half. The study of biomarkers has evolved rapidly thanks to advances in precision medicine. While conventional cancer biomarker research is focused on proteomics or gene analysis of resected tissue, diagnostic markers have since become significant in terms of gauging the effectiveness of molecularly targeted drugs or the likelihood of a favorable prognosis. In addition, conventional treatment strategy, which draws on archives of resected tissue samples, is now gradually being replaced by monitoring with the use of liquid biopsy, which is poised to become the new mainstream in molecular targeting therapy. The contributing authors discuss in detail biomarkers, molecular targets for treatment, monitoring markers to evaluate treatment responses, prognostic markers, and screening and early diagnosis. Accordingly, this excellent collection of texts will benefit not only oncologists, but also medical and biological researchers and pharmaceutical scientists involved in the latest cancer research.

Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive and complete overview of biomarkers in clinical practice for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) bringing together the literature in a clear and concise manner. The book bridges the gap between growing knowledge at the bench and current and future applications of biomarkers in clinical practice. The central structure of the book focuses on prognostic and predictive biomarkers in IBD with an emphasis on the fields of research and scientific techniques (genomics, proteomics and metabonomics) that have led to biomarker discovery and places these biomarkers within a clinical context to help understand their utility in clinical practice. This book will be of use to clinicians who have an interest in using biomarkers in clinical practice as well as clinician researchers and scientists involved in the biomarker research pipeline. The author team comprises experts from around the world in order to bring together the literature in an effort to inform clinicians and researchers about the current state-of-the art in biomarker discovery. It is intended to assist future research efforts and indicate how biomarkers might be best applied to clinical practice both at present and in the future.

Abstract
Developed via a peer review process that included 25 experienced endocrinologists and utilizing the best current evidence, The Cleveland Clinic has created a practical set of protocols for over 25 commonly used dynamic endocrine tests. The cornerstone of clinical endocrinology, these evidence-based protocols play an important role in clinical decision-making and are important element of billing and compliance with high quality standards. Included here are various tests for pituitary and adrenal disorders, thyroid disorders, and glucose metabolism and pancreatic disorders, presented systematically with indications, preparation, materials needed, precautions, procedure, interpretation, and caveats. Filling the gap left by a lack of national guidelines, The Cleveland Clinic Manual of Dynamic Endocrine Testing is an up-to-date practical guide for endocrinologists, nurses, and their staff, inside or outside of the US, who need to perform and interpret dynamic endocrine testing in their everyday practice, as well as medical students, residents and fellows who have interest in endocrinology.
