Lung Cancer Metastasis Springer Verlag
Medycyna > English Division
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Metastatic lung cancer is responsible for more than ninety percent of lung cancer related deaths. However, relatively little progress has been made in understanding the process of lung cancer metastasis. The two main aims of this book are a) to introduce clinical aspects to basic scientists and basic molecular and cellular concepts to clinical investigators, in order to promote collaboration and foster much needed translational research; and b) to introduce new and emerging concepts and approaches in metastasis research to lung cancer research community at large. In this attempt, the book will cover a broad spectrum of subjects ranging from the current trends in the clinical management of the metastatic disease, to the systems biology approach for gaining insights into the mechanisms of metastasis. Some of the subjects covered will include: defining basic hallmarks of a metastatic cell, the concept of tumor stem cells, epithelial-mesenchymal transitions, evasion of immune-surveillance, tumor-stromal interactions, angiogenesis, molecular imaging and biomarker discovery.
Asymmetric Cell Division Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Cell biologists have recently come to understand that asymmetry of division is an important regulatory phenomenon in the fate of a cell. In adult organisms asymmetric divisions regulate the stem cell reservoir and are a source of the drift that contributes to aging. This book describes the phenomenon in different organisms and addresses its implications for the development of the organism, cell differentiation, human aging and the biology of cancers.Cell biologists have recently become aware that the asymmetry of cell division is an important regulatory phenomenon in the fate of a cell. During development, cell diversity originates through asymmetry; in the adult organism asymmetric divisions regulate the stem cell reservoir and are a source of the drift that contributes to the aging of organisms with renewable cell compartments. Because of the concept of semi-conservative DNA synthesis, it was thought that the distribution of DNA between daughter cells was symmetric. The analysis of the phenomenon in cells during mitosis, however, revealed the asymmetry in the distribution of the genetic material that creates the drift contributing to aging of mammals. On the other hand, cancer cells can originate from a deregulation of asymmetry during mitosis in particular during stem cell expansion. The book describes the phenomenon in different organisms from plants to animals and addresses its implications for the development of the organism, cell differentiation, human aging and the biology of cancers.
Nanoparticles in Biomedical Imaging Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
About the Series:§Fundamental Biomedical Technologies features titles in multidisciplinary, technology-driven areas, providing the foundations for breakthrough advances in medicine and biology. The term technology refers, in a vigorously unrestrictive sense, to a broad array of engineering disciplines, the sciences of computation and informatics, mathematical models exploiting and advancing methods of mathematical physics, and the development of novel, experimental discovery devices. Titles in this series are designed and selected to provide high-level visionary input for specialists, while presenting overviews of emerging fields for those in related areas. Volumes in this series aim to provide technologists with the material to gain competent entry into biomedical research and biomedical researchers to understand and embrace novel technological foundations and tools. §About the Series Editor:§Mauro Ferrari is a professor in the Brown Institute of Molecular Medicine, a professor of internal medicine in the division of cardiology, and the chairman of the department of biomedical engineering at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, Texas. He holds concurrent professor appointments at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as professor of experimental therapeutics, and at Rice University in bioengineering. Dr. Ferrari is the current President of the Alliance for NanoHealth and he has spearheaded the development of the National Cancer Institute s nanotechnology programs. Dr. Ferrari is also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Springer s archival journal Biomedical Microdevices. §Nanoparticles in Biomedical Imaging§Jeff W.M. Bulte and Michel M.J.J. Modo, Editors§Nanoparticles in Biomedical Imaging focuses on the use of nanoparticles as chemically engineered small entities that now have emerged as widely used diagnostic agents in biomedicine. The book is logically organized by the specific imaging modalities that are currently central in pre-clinical research and clinical routine, including magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclear imaging, ultrasound imaging, computed tomography, and optical imaging. This comprehensive title provides an expert opinion on the latest developments in biomedical imaging using nanoparticles. §Key topics:§Use of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles in magnetic resonance imaging§Radiolabeled liposomes and their applications in nuclear medicine§Ultrasound bubbles as acoustically reflective medium§Exploiting iodinated nanoparticles with computed tomography§Quantum dots: the bright future of semiconducting optical agents §Nanoparticles in Biomedical Imaging will serve as a useful and valuable resource on the fundamental science of diagnostic nanoparticles in their interactions with biological targets, providing a platform technology for clinical implementation and improved detection of disease. §About the Editors: §Jeff W.M. Bulte is currently a Professor of Radiology and a Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, USA. He serves as the Director of Cellular Imaging in the JHU Institute for Cell Engineering. §Michel M.J.J. Modo is the Wolfson Lecturer in Stem Cell Imaging at the Centre for the Cellular Basis of Behaviour and the MRC Centre for Neurodegeneration Research at the Institute of Psychiatry, King s College London.
Organ Microcirculation Springer, Berlin
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The concept of microcirculation means not only the assembly of small vessels-those of less than 100 um in diameter, but also its functional circulatory and metabolic units. Its principal function is to permit the transfer of substances between the tissues and the circulation, making it a fundamental factor in disease processes, including the spread of cancer, delayed healing, circulatory shock, and complications of diabetes . Organ Microcirculation: A Gateway to Diagnostic and Therapeutic Interventions covers the latest developments in nano-biotechnology for microvascular interventions, gastroduodenal microcirculation and disease, liver microvascular research, cell adhesion and traffic in micmcirculation, and the sensing and bioregulation of gaseous molecules in microcirculation . It provides invaluable information for those engaged in microvascular research in the fields of pharmacology, physiology, gastroenterology, and bioengineering.
