Molecular pathology is based on the emergence of new techniques that greatly enhance the diagnostic accuracy when facing with challenging differential diagnoses. In addition, new molecular techniques are entering the clinical arena for their value in predicting therapy response and tumor prognosis. This book provides a guide for the practicing pathologist and for both pathology residents and fellows during the daily sign-out of challenging cases. The book is organized by anatomical systems and provides a detailed description of molecular tests that may help in the diagnosis. Furthermore, a description of the current molecular tests required to identify patients for treatment is offered. The application of molecular pathology techniques to the clinical practice has already shown its usefulness and the number of such tests is growing exponentially as more molecular targets are discovered. Molecular Pathology and Diagnostics of Cancer will give practicing and training pathologists an up-to date resource to guide the correct management of pathology cases requiring molecular testing.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a comprehensive book on current molecular tests and the recent advances in the field of diagnostics. . The intended audience includes students, pathologists, oncologists, cancer scientists, and other professionals interested in molecular pathology of cancer. . this book is by far the most comprehensive resource in its field. In particular, it is useful for pathologists and oncologists during their daily signout of challenging cases. This book is a great contribution to the field of pathology." (Aida I. Richardson, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2014)
