This book is a methodological source on mice models of vascular diseases. Covering various areas, each chapter is written by a pioneering researcher who has developed an original vascular disease model. Notoriously difficult to reproduce, each model is described in detail and numerous photographs are provided with links to videos. Genetically modified mice are a very powerful tool for studying the pathogenesis of various diseases, including immunological and oncological disorders, but they had always been thought to be too small to be used in the field of cardiovascular disease. Recently, however, various mice models of vascular diseases have been reported, and these will make a substantial contribution to basic research on cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.
The analysis of blood, bone marrow and tissue fluid specimens requires a multi-faceted approach with the integration of scientific data from a number of disciplines. No single discipline can operate in isolation or errors will occur. Flow cytometry is in a privileged position in that it can provide rapid analysis of specimens and it is often the first definitive investigation to produce results and help formulate a working diagnosis. This companion text to Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology Diagnosis contains 100 worked examples drawn from real clinical cases presenting to the authors institution. Cases are illustrated with peripheral blood and bone marrow cytology, tissue pathology and cytogenetic and molecular data, which are integrated to generate, where appropriate, a diagnosis based on the WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues. The spectrum of clinical cases includes adult and paediatric patients, and both neoplastic and reactive disorders. The cases appear in no particular order to challenge the reader to make their own diagnosis. The reader will review May Grunwald Giemsa (MGG)-stained films of peripheral blood and bone marrow aspirates presented alongside flow cytometric data and haematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained bone marrow and other tissue biopsy sections. Immunohistochemistry is used to further clarify the tissue lineage and cell differentiation. Cytogenetic studies using metaphase preparations are used to identify translocations and chromosome gains and losses whilst interphase fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) studies and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are used to identify gene fusions, gene rearrangements and deletions. Each case concludes with a discussion of the features that are important to making a diagnosis. The cases are also listed according to disease classification in the appendix so that the text can also be used as a reference. Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology: 100 Worked Examples: * Provides a practical, example-based resource for flow cytometry * Demonstrates how flow cytometry results should be interpreted and applied to optimize patient care * Includes both malignant and benign conditions * Can be used in conjunction with Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology Diagnosis, by the same author team (ISBN 9780470671207) Practical Flow Cytometry in Haematology: 100 Worked Examples is ideal for practicing haematologists and histopathologists with an interest in haematopathology, but particularly directed at trainee haematologists and scientists preparing for FRCPath and related examinations.
Presentation of the myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) varies widely, and correct diagnosis and management can be challenging, and is becoming more complex as understanding of the underlying molecular basis for these disorders emerges. Appropriate management is increasingly informed by accurate risk stratification founded on understanding of cytogenetic and molecular markers, as well as the clinical presentation. 'Fast Facts: myeloproliferative neoplasms' focuses on the three most common chronic MPNs: * Essential thrombocythemia (ET) - characterized by increased platelet count * Polycythemia vera (PV) - characterized by excessive production of red blood cells * Primary myelofibrosis - a more severe and heterogenous disorder that may overlap with ET and PV but is commonly associated with anemia. Written by two leading experts in the field, Fast Facts: myeloproliferative neoplasms provides concise, up-to-date and practical guidance on the accurate diagnosis, risk stratification and management of these MPNs. It also provides key insights into our growing understanding of the underlying molecular and genetic basis of these disorders, and how this is informing risk stratification and management strategies. This concise handbook will be invaluable to clinicians, medical students, nurses, pharmacists and scientists in understanding and overcoming the everyday and rarer challenges associated with MPN.
