The various cell types have traditionally been recognized and classified according to their appearance in the light microscope following the process of fixing, processing, sectioning, and staining tissues that is known as histology. 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.

This book discusses all aspects of immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization technologies and the important role they play in reaching a cancer diagnosis. It 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. The topics of region-specific gene expression, its role in cancer development and the techniques that assist in the understanding of the molecular basis of disease are relevant and necessary in science today, ensuring a wide audience for this book.


Graduate and medical students in cancer research, oncology, pathology, biology, immunology, bioinformatics and endocrinology.

Quotes and reviews

"...this handbook is of unparalleled value as a reference book and should be on the shelf of all serious investigators in the field... Its value lies in having an immediate reference source at hand, replete with bibliography, for a particular research project, or occasionally for a particularly difficult clinical issue. In these areas, there are simply no competitors in print..."
--Clive R. Taylor, Dept of Pathology, The Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, in APPLIED IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY & MOLECULAR MORPHOLOGY (June 2006)
"...this book is a valuable reference for medical students, medical technician, pathologists, and clinician alike who are interested in tumor biology or translational research."

"Volume 1 of this three-volume Elsevier handbook, edited by M.A. Hayat on the 'Immunohistochemistry and in situ Hybridization of Human Carcinomas' is impressive. ...The technical detail included in many contributions surpasses that available from the scientific and clinical journals; all provide a depth of up-to-date knowledge based upon the authors' experience and expertise. Every large hospital and medical school library should be persuaded to buy a copy of this book."
--MICRON (2005)

"...Professor Hayat’s handbook, Handbook of Immunohistochemistry and in situ Hybridization of Human Carcinomas has the great potential of becoming the handbook of choice for clinician and basic scientists including medical and biological students and biomedical technologists."
