Key Features

* The only book available that translates molecular genetics into cancer diagnosis
* The results of each Immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization method are presented in the form of color illustrations
* Methods discussed were either developed or refined by expert contributors in their own laboratories


Immunohistochemistry is the use of specific antibodies to stain particular molecular species in situ. This technique 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, and has the potential to improve diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic options of cancer.

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.

This book is the second volume of three planned, individually-sold volumes on this topic. Like Volume 1, this book fully explains the principles and applications of modern techniques used in the field of molecular genetics. It will be of particular interest to pathologists and molecular pathologists conducting both academic and/or clinical research.


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

Quotes and reviews

"The impressive list of contributors, form 15 countries, and the extensive coverage in 492 pages (with many micrographs of excellent quality) maintains the high standard established in Volume 1 of the Handbook series. It represents a valuable addition to the available technical literature on human carcinomas. Professor Hayat is again to be congratulated for producing such a useful book. This book should be considered for purchase by medical school librarians and by hospital Pathology/Oncology departments."
