Molecular Pathology: The Molecular Basis of Human Disease

"The editors of Molecular Pathology have produced a comprehensive compendium of the state-of-the-art in molecular pathogenesis, an impressive accomplishment given the diverse cells and organ systems involved in human disease. An established cadre of experts has contributed to this first, well-designed edition. As a result, essential topics ranging from cell injury/death, the molecular basis of cardiovascular diseases and disorders of the nervous system, and modern molecular diagnostics are amply addressed. In a rapidly emerging discipline, it is challenging to capture the details that define the field. Molecular Pathology has accomplished this goal in an outstanding manner and will serve as an excellent resource for those already established in clinical care and biomedical research, for those who seek to maintain competency in molecular pathology, as well as for all students involved in interdisciplinary studies related to human disease or modern clinical investigations."

Linda M. McManus, PhD, Professor, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

"The focus of Molecular Pathology is genetic and molecular but it has been written toenhance thework of an active pathologist, clearly describing the basics as well as providing ample sampling of the molecular complexities of disease. Gladly the editors did not assemble an exhaustive compendium of facts and details that would inevitably become obsolete in short order.Instead, the contributorsconcentrated on clarity of explanationsupported by selected examples so that the reader may grasp the fundamentals better.In fact, this may be one medical textbook thatcan be read cover-to-cover without being lost in details. The figures are clear, helpful, and plentiful which is important when dealing with so many complex technologies and concepts. I highly recommend this book."

This textbook is ideal for faculty teaching pathology courses in medical schools and graduate pathology, biomedical, and allied health departments. It teaches from the perspective of integrative systems biology and encompasses all molecular aspects of biology, as applied to the understanding of human diseases. If you are looking for an alternative textbook this is it as it provides state-of-the-art coverage of topics from cell injury and cell death, to the molecular basis of cardiovascular disease.
