In the past, disease pattern mapping depended on census tracts based on political units, such as states and counties. However, with the advent of geographic information systems (GIS), researchers can now achieve a new level of precision and flexibility in geographic locating. This emerging technology allows the mapping of many different kinds of geographies, including disease rates in relation to pollution sources. Geocoding Health Data presents a... more...

This detailed volume presents protocols for advancing the utility of nanotechnology in cancer research toward improving our understanding of cancer biology, prevention, diagnosis, and therapy. There are continuous new discoveries in the field of nanotechnology, thus creating new imaging systems or therapies, and this book focuses on how to employ certain discoveries for studying cancer by presenting principles along with techniques to... more...

This comprehensive, well referenced text provides an up to date review of what is known scientifically about occupational and environmental causes of sickness, disability, and death. It also includes information on the scientific methods used in acquiring this knowledge, making it a complete reference for both clinicians in occupational medicine, and researchers.

This book provides an overview of the latest advances in head and neck cancer using a multidisciplinary approach. Commencing with a discussion of epidemiological and diagnostic aspects, including the role of vaccination and key pathological features, the book then follows by examining the role of oncogenomics, proteomics, next generation sequencing and homologous recombination function in predicting outcomes. The topics are presented by... more...

Although the first AIDS cases were attributed to men having sex with men, over 70% of HIV infections worldwide are now estimated to occur through sex between women and men. In Men at Risk, Shari L. Dworkin argues that the centrality of heterosexual relationship dynamics to the transmission of HIV means that both women and men need to be taken into account in gender-specific HIV/AIDS prevention interventions. She looks at the “costs... more...

The book discusses a vital problem of diagnostics and treatment of peritoneal malignancies, pseudomyxoma and malignant mesothelioma, which is still insufficiently developed. Compared to similar, earlier editions, this volume importantly presents cutting-edge approaches and up-to-date diagnostic methods. The authors place special emphasis on morphological/pathological characteristics of these tumors involving immunodiagnostic... more...

This volume focuses on the biology of multiple myeloma, especially on oncogenomic changes, cell signaling pathways and intermediate molecules that are being investigated for development of novel therapies. It explores all clinically important targets.

This book provides a unique analysis of changes in survival outcomes over six decades at the University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Includes survival data across a spectrum of rare and common cancers, plus illustrative charts, graphs and tables.

This book offers a comprehensive view of Burkitt’s Lymphoma from diagnosis to potential animal models for the disease, including perspective from physicians who have a up close view of the patients in populations where the disease is rampant.
