Overview

Molecular Pathology of Neoplastic Gastrointestinal Diseases reviews the molecular aspects that characterize the spectrum of neoplastic conditions that affect thegastrointestinal tract, providing the reader with current up-to-date knowledge. For each disease entity chapters provide reviews on:



• the molecular basis of the individual disease
• molecular testing approaches currently available or in development for diagnosis or for gene target characterization for selective targeted therapies
• recommended guidelines for clinical application of molecular tests are included whenever available
• molecular testing for hereditary predisposition or disease risk
• animal models and cell culture models of disease
