About this Item

18 pages of text. References. Accompanied with 100 slides. Part of text is keyed to slides. ARP refers to American Pathology Registry. Error on Table of Contents. Items listed at page 16 are at page 18. Dr. Busch was both an M.D. and a Ph.D. and was with the Department of Environmental and Toxicology Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. The subject of injury by cancer chemotherapy drugs has received relatively little attention. Many of these drugs have in common with radiation such features as mutagenicity and the ability to deplete parenchymal cells. They also have organ specific effects. In recognition of the importance of this topic, this slide set has been prepared to illustrate some of there effects. Also included are several examples of injury by chemical warfare agents, which share with the chemotherapy drugs an expectation of injury to persons exposed; some overlap in their pathologic manifestations; and in some cases the potential for damage to the genetic material. In addition, war gases share with radiation the potential for injury to both military and civilian personnel on a large scale. Dr. Busch, who died of leukemia in 2011, received an undergraduate degree with distinction in 1974, a masters in 1976 and Ph.D. in biophysics in 1980 all at the University of California, Berkeley. His Ph.D. work was performed under the guidance of Nobel prize winner, Dr. Donald Glaser. He then earned an M.D. degree in 1982 in a special 2 year program at the University of Miami. This was followed by residencies in anatomic and clinical pathology at the University of Wisconsin which culminated in his becoming a Diplomate of the American Board of Pathology in 1986, the year he joined the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, DC where he spent his professional career as a Radiation Pathologist. Over a period of 25 years David had an extremely successful interaction with Dr. Larry Thompson at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. When the Glaser laboratory closed because of loss of funding, Dr. Thompson maintained David's mutant collection in liquid nitrogen for about a decade until David established his own laboratory in Washington, DC. David then systematically analyzed the collection and produced a series of publications that involved collaborations with other scientists. Bookseller Inventory # 74935
