Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a well-written book in which there seems to be a genuine desire to communicate the practical value as well as the insights into aetiology provided by successive developments in the field of molecular haematology." (The Bulletin, 1 October 2011)
Written with the non-specialist in mind, this book demonstrates the relevance of advances in molecular biology to hematologists' day-to- day practice<-->highlighting the impact molecular biology has had on the diagnostic aspects of disease management as well as therapeutic strategies that have been developed as a result of basic molecular biological investigation. Provan (Southampton General Hospital, UK) and Gribben (Harvard Medical School) have assembled 16 chapters covering topics such as molecular cytogenetics; detection of minimal residual disease in hematological malignancies; hemoglobinopathies due to structural mutations; hematopoietic growth factors; and molecular therapeutics in hematology.
