Aimed at both beginners and experienced researchers unfamiliar with the technique, this book provides a concise and easy-to-understand guide to using immunohistochemistry. It identifies the proper place and purpose of each component of immunohistochemistry, emphasizes the components that are of critical importance, and explains the logistics of experimental approaches. Understanding the principles of immunohistochemistry allows for the identification and localization of protein targets and is of crucial use in the following experiments: · producing transgenic animals · studying the effects of drug treatments · electrophysiological studies · animal surgery · isolating and differentiating stem cells · super-resolution microscopy Immunohistochemistry for the Non-Expert is aimed at a wide audience, including molecular biologists, pharmacologists, immunologists, chemists, cell biologists, physiologists, and researchers involved with animal anatomy studies.

As drug development shifts over time to address unmet medical needs and more targeted therapies are developed, previously unseen pharmacological or off-target effects may occur in treatment. Designed to provide practical information for the bench toxicologic pathologist working in pharmaceutical drug research, Toxicologic Pathology: Nonclinical Safety Assessment presents a histopathologic description of lesions observed during drug development and discusses their implication in the drug development process. Divided into two sections, the book systematically assists pathologists in making a determination as to the origin and potential importance of a lesion and its relevance for assessing human risk. The first section includes eight "concept" chapters to orient pathologists in areas that are important for effective interaction with other pathologists as well as the many non-pathologists involved in drug development. The second section is made up of organ-based chapters, each including light microscopic and electron microscopic descriptions of pathological lesions, differential diagnoses, biological consequences, pathogenesis, mechanism of lesion formation, and the expected clinical pathology correlates. This volume presents critical information—both published and unpublished and gained through personal experience—to improve the quality of drug safety evaluation and to expedite and improve the efficiency of the process. This book is crafted to assist students, residents, and toxicologic pathologists in their early career phase by serving as a resource that can effectively be used as a ready reference next to the microscope. In addition, more experienced pathologists will find this volume to be invaluable during their assessments. The book is also a valuable reference for toxicologists to assist in understanding compound-related pathological findings and to provide background for working on a range of toxicological problems.

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 only book available that translates molecular genetics into cancer diagnosis * Methods were developed by internationally-recognized experts and presented in step-by-step manner * Results of each Immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization are presented in the form of color illustrations

In the last decade, some outstanding progress has been made in the field of neurogastroenterology, a term which has been introduced to account for the crucial role of the enteric, autonomic and central nervous system in the regulation of gastrointestinal functions in health and disease. These proceedings of Falk Symposium No. 112 on Neurogastroenterology - From the Basics to the Clinics, held in Freiburg, Germany, on 21-22 June 1999, reviews and discusses the fast-growing knowledge in this field in order to initiate more interdiscliplinary discussions along with new research. Contributors include basic scientists, clinicians of various specialities, morphologists, physiologists, molecular biologists, embryologists, pharmacologists, surgeons, gastroenterologists and behavioural scientists interested in the central and the autonomic nervous system in relation to the gastrointestinal tract.
