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.

• The only book available that translates molecular genetics into cancer diagnosis
• Provides the readers with tools necessary to perform and optimize sensitive, powerful techniques, including immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization, used in tumor diagnosis
• Written by experts in this field, the book provides theoretical considerations as well as practical approaches to carry out effectively these techniques
• Offers suggestions, tips, cautions, and guidelines to avoid artifacts and misdiagnosis
• Introduces new techniques to detect genes and proteins involved in the initiation and progression of cancer
• Covers the latest developments and a wide range of applications to the detection of antigens and single-copy DNA and RNA
• Written in a uniform format, each chapter includes Introduction, Materials required, step-by-step detailed Methods, Results, Discussion, and comprehensive up-to-date References

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

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this handbook is of unparalleled value as a reference book and should be on the shelf of all serious investigators in the field..."
—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)

"...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..."
—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."
—Akhouri A. Sinha, Ph.D., Professor of Genetics, Cell Biology and Development, University of Minnesota and Research Scientist at the VA Medical Center Minneapolis, MN

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eugene A Davidson, PhD (Georgetown University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a handbook of primarily histochemical methods applied to diagnosis of lung and breast carcinomas. Protocols are included.
Purpose: The goal is to offer a set of protocols for common histochemical methods used in tumor diagnosis. This volume focuses on lung and breast; two additional volumes are planned. It may be of utility to some practicing pathologists (most will have comparable recipes to hand). It certainly will be useful to someone not familiar with the techniques.
Audience: The intended audience is the pathologist engaged in diagnostic work. The editor has assembled a large and diverse group of international contributors; the authority level varies.
Features: Early diagnosis of malignant disease remains the best route to effective therapy. The classic methods of histochemical analysis still form the backbone of most diagnostic procedures. This is the first of three planned volumes on these methods of tumor diagnosis; the focus is on lung and breast carcinomas. Each major section contains several chapters that provide detailed protocols for (mainly) histochemical identification of specific molecules associated with the given malignancy. Additional coverage is provided for array methods. The technical information is clearly of value to clinical pathologists although it is likely that most practitioners have already established methods. As opposed to general visual examination of biopsy sections, the emphasis here is on proteins known to be disease related. There are ample, well produced illustrations and suitable references for each chapter. A minor concern is that the international author cadre would have profited (linguistically) from more careful editing. Some of the chapter titles promise more than they deliver and there is insufficient attention given to DNA-based approaches.
Assessment: These caveats aside, the volume has much practical information and would serve well in most clinical pathology laboratories. It is likely that many of these procedures will be superseded by DNA-based methods but these are still some time away.
