Helps researchers in proteomics and oncology work together to understand, prevent, and cure cancer Proteomic data is increasingly important to understanding the origin and progression of cancer; however, most oncologic researchers who depend on proteomics for their studies do not collect the data themselves. As a result, there is a knowledge gap between scientists, who devise proteomic techniques and collect the data, and the oncologic researchers, who are expected to interpret and apply proteomic data. Bridging the gap between proteomics and oncology research, this book explains how proteomic technology can be used to address some of the most important questions in cancer research. Proteomic Applications in Cancer Detection and Discovery enables readers to understand how proteomic data is acquired and analyzed and how it is interpreted. Author Timothy Veenstra has filled the book with examples—many based on his own firsthand research experience—that clearly demonstrate the application of proteomic technology in oncology research, including the discovery of novel biomarkers for different types of cancers. The book begins with a brief introduction to systems biology, explaining why cancer is a systems biology disease. Next, it covers such topics as: Mass spectrometry in cancer research Application of proteomics to global phosphorylation analysis Search for biomarkers in biofluids Rise and fall of proteomic patterns for cancer diagnostics Emergence of protein arrays Role of proteomics in personalized medicine The final chapter is dedicated to the future prospects of proteomics in cancer research. By guiding readers through the latest proteomic technologies and their applications in cancer research, Proteomic Applications in Cancer Detection and Discovery enhances the ability of researchers in proteomics and researchers in oncology to collaborate in order to better understand cancer and develop strategies to prevent and treat it.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Physics - Optics, grade: 1.1, University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern (Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM), language: English, abstract: This diploma thesis approaches the topic of data fusion from the hardware as well as the algorithmic perspective. In order to acquire data suitable for the merging process, two measurement systems are introduced featuring the opportunity to synchronously image a target with two measurement heads. Both systems allow non-destructive contact-free terahertz materials inspection with the means of the FMCW measurement principle. One scanning unit, the FusionHead, makes use of the radiation's polarization to allow collinear inspection on a target volume element with both measurement heads.This makes the data inherently suitable for the data fusion process. The second acquisition system covered in this work is the Compact system, enabling the user to image a whole component in raster scan movements obtaining a complete 3D image.Besides featuring two measurement heads, the Compact system is equipped with a control software, which synchronizes the data acquisition, raster movements, data analysis and the correct image visualization.The two measurement heads utilized in both systems feature adjacent frequency ranges, which are determined in the course of this thesis, and lead to different resolutions and penetration depths into the target.

Schiff David Neuro-oncology

Cancer imposes daunting effects on the nervous system Brain cancer is one of the most devastating diagnoses a physician can deliver. Cancer of the nervous system can take many different forms. Treatment is specific to the type of malignancy, its location in the nervous system and, increasingly, its molecular characteristics. The challenges manifest further when management choices need to be made, and multidisciplinary approaches are required. Additional complexities arise in children, where the developing neurological system requires more sensitive treatment. Neuro-oncology unmasks the complexities to provide a straightforward guide to cancers of the nervous system. Following a general approach to diagnosis and treatment, the clinical aspects of specific cancer types in adults and children are explained in practical terms. A final section considers the effect of system cancer on the nervous system and the side effects of treatment. Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Neuro-oncology will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively. Neurology in Practice Series Editors Robert A Gross , MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA Jonathan W Mink, MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA The Neurology in Practice series provides clinical 'in the office' or 'at the bedside' guides to effective patient care for neurologists.

Murray Keith Wadsworth Prostate Cancer. Sheep or Wolf.: Navigating Systemic Misinformation

Before you choose a treatment strategy, you need to know whether you’re facing sheep or wolves -- and where they all are.Murray Wadsworth was a fit and enthusiastic weekend triathlete who included regular checkups and annual screenings for prostate cancer in his overall health and wellness plan. At age forty-seven, though, he was caught off guard by a prostate cancer scare after a routine blood test. The biopsy came back clear, and Wadsworth carried on with his active life. But ten years later, another routine screening raised a concern. This time, the biopsy tested positive for cancer.Prostate Cancer: Sheep or Wolf? is the riveting story of one man’s parallel journeys: Balancing a diagnosis of and treatment for prostate cancer while embarking on multiple RV road trips between treatment regimens throughout the US and Europe. This book offers a revealing and insightful look into how America’s healthcare system leads men into blind alleys, fear traps, and under- and overtreatment. There is considerable confusion and misinformation about prostate cancer screening, including whether men should even screen at all and what to make of the results. But even when men think they’re informed about symptoms and screening, the presence of prostate cancer can be missed.Despite regular PSA and DRE screening, Murray Wadsworth’s cancer went undetected for years. When he was diagnosed at fifty-seven while working in England, he took no solace in the myth that prostate cancer is an old man’s di...

Elmansy Hazem, El Leithy Tarek Ramzy, Hammam Olfat Ali Prognostic Impact of Apoptosis Markers (Fas . Fasl) in Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is a global health issue. In the endemic areas of Egypt, schistosomiasis is a leading cause of bladder cancer. Prognostic indicators are required to further identify which tumor should be treated aggressively early on, in order to improve surveillance. The Fas-Fas Ligand (Fas-FasL) system has been recognized as a major pathway for the induction of apoptosis in cells and tissues. Fas-mediated apoptosis is deeply involved in cancer cell death, brought about by the immune system. The interaction of Fas and Fas Ligand contributes to cytotoxic T-lymphocyte and natural killer-cell mediated cytotoxicity against cancer cells. This study was performed to assess the importance of the apoptosis markers (Fas and FasL) in bilharzial versus non-bilharzial bladder cancer, in order to detect the possible diagnostic &/or prognostic potentials of this factor.

Cancer, which has become the second-most prevalent health issue globally, is essentially a malfunction of cell signaling. Understanding how the intricate signaling networks of cells and tissues allow cancer to thrive – and how they can be turned into potent weapons against it – is the key to managing cancer in the clinic and improving the outcome of cancer therapies. In their ground-breaking textbook, the authors provide a compelling story of how cancer works on the molecular level, and how targeted therapies using kinase inhibitors and other modulators of signaling pathways can contain and eventually cure it. The first part of the book gives an introduction into the cell and molecular biology of cancer, focusing on the key mechanisms of cancer formation. The second part of the book introduces the main signaling transduction mechanisms responsible for carcinogenesis and compares their function in healthy versus cancer cells. In contrast to the complexity of its topic, the text is easy to read. 32 specially prepared teaching videos on key concepts and pathways in cancer signaling are available online for users of the print edition and have been integrated into the text in the enhanced e-book edition.
