9780123744197: Molecular Pathology: The Molecular Basis of Human Disease

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

Product Description:

Molecular Pathology will be the first textbook for introductory pathology courses in Ph.D. and medical school programs that fully incorporates molecular coverage. Since the mapping of the human genome most biomedical fields have migrated to more molecular approaches to the science. The same is true for pathology however the textbooks have not yet caught up with this trend. This will be the first introductory pathology textbook that truly integrates the molecular mechanisms of human disease.

From the Back Cover:

"The editors of Molecular Pathology have produced a comprehensive compendium of the state-of-the-art in molecular pathogenesis, an impressive accomplishment given the diverse cells and organ systems involved in human disease. An established cadre of experts has contributed to this first, well-designed edition. As a result, essential topics ranging from cell injury/death, the molecular basis of cardiovascular diseases and disorders of the nervous system, and modern molecular diagnostics are amply addressed. In a rapidly emerging discipline, it is challenging to capture the details that define the field. Molecular Pathology has accomplished this goal in an outstanding manner and will serve as an excellent resource for those already established in clinical care and biomedical research, for those who seek to maintain competency in molecular pathology, as well as for all students involved in interdisciplinary studies related to human disease or modern clinical investigations."

--Linda M. McManus, PhD, Professor, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

"The focus of Molecular Pathology is genetic and molecular but it has been written to enhance the work of an active pathologist, clearly describing the basics as well as providing ample sampling of the molecular complexities of disease. Gladly the editors did not assemble an exhaustive compendium of facts and details that would inevitably become obsolete in short order. Instead, the contributors concentrated on clarity of explanation supported by selected examples so that the reader may grasp the fundamentals better. In fact, this may be one medical textbook that can be read cover-to-cover without being lost in details. The figures are clear, helpful, and plentiful which is important when dealing with so many complex technologies and concepts. I highly recommend this book."

--Edison T. Liu, M.D, Executive Director, Genome Institute of Singapore
