Classical histology has been augmented by immunohistochemistry (the use of specific antibodies to stain particular molecular species in situ). Immunohistochemistry has allowed the identification of many more cell types than could be visualized by classical histology, particularly in the immune system and among the scattered hormone-secreting cells of the endocrine system. The four volumes in this set discuss all aspects of immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization technologies and the important role they play in reaching a cancer diagnosis. Each provides step-by-step instructions on the methods of additional molecular technologies such as DNA microarrays, and microdissection, along with the benefits and limitations of each method. Volume one covers lung and breast carcinomas. Volume two covers colorectal and prostate carcinomas. Volume three covers liver and pancreatic carcinomas. Volume four covers gastrointestinal and ovarian carcinomas. This is the only book available that translates molecular genetics into cancer diagnosis. The methods were developed by internationally-recognized experts and presented in step-by-step manner. The results of each Immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization are presented in the form of color illustrations.
