Epigenetics of Cancer Prevention

a cura di Anupam Bishayee, Deepak Bhatia

editore: Elsevier Science Ltd

pagine: 442

Epigenetics of Cancer Prevention, Volume Ten is the first to look at epigenetics and chemoprevention together. Although there is numerous scientific data available on how epigenetics can lead to cancer and how chemoprevention can be beneficial in the treatment of, or improvement of quality of life, together they will set an advanced understanding for the reader in this upcoming field of chemoprevention influencing epigenetics. This book discusses molecular epigenetic targets of natural products, such as green tea polyphenols, curcumin and resveratrol, and organ specific epigenetic targets related to diverse types of cancer, for example prostate, colorectal, breast, lung and skin cancers. Additionally, it encompasses a discussion on research methods and limitations to study epigenetics and epigenomics of chemopreventive drugs and personalized cancer treatment with phytochemicals. The book is ideal for cancer researchers, health care professionals and all individuals who are interested in cancer prevention research and its clinical applications, especially in natural remedies.

The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology

Definitions, Criteria, and Explanatory Notes

Edmund S. Cibas, Syed Z. Ali

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 236

The first edition of The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology was published in 2010 and has greatly influenced the practice of thyroid cytopathology. The terminology proposed and illustrated in this text has been widely adopted not only in the U.S. but also abroad. It has become an essential text for pathology trainees and practicing pathologists examining thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens. Since 2010, there have been a number of important advances in the management of patients with nodular thyroid disease and in the understanding of the biology of thyroid cancer. This new edition includes these advances that impact terminology for reporting thyroid cytopathology. In particular, it incorporates a discussion of the recently implemented and now widespread use of molecular testing of thyroid FNA samples, which has transformed the management of patients with nodular thyroid disease in the U.S.. In addition, this edition accommodates the recent changes to the classification of thyroid cancer, most notably the introduction of a new thyroid diagnosis, that of "non-invasive follicular tumor with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP)". Thoroughly revised and updated, The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology, Second Edition will provide the reader with a unified approach to diagnosing and reporting thyroid FNA interpretations. It serves as a reference guide not just for pathologists, but also endocrinologists, surgeons, and radiologists.

Bersaglio mobile. Il ruolo del sistema immunitario nella lotta al cancro

Alberto Mantovani

editore: Mondadori

pagine: 144

Nell'immaginario collettivo e nel vissuto di molti, nonostante i progressi della ricerca medica, grazie ai quali sta diventando sempre più curabile, il cancro continua a fare paura. Tanto da essere spesso definito il male del secolo, se non del millennio. E bastano pochi numeri a spiegare perché: solo in Italia, 500 morti e 1000 nuovi casi ogni giorno, più o meno equamente divisi tra uomini e donne, e degli attuali circa 3 milioni di pazienti affetti da cancro, circa il 60% sopravvive a cinque anni dalla diagnosi. Ma cos'è un tumore e come si forma? Perché ci ammaliamo? Quali sono le terapie più efficaci nella lotta contro una malattia estremamente difficile da contrastare perché, come un bersaglio mobile, evolve e si trasforma per resistere alle terapie? E quali sono le nuove frontiere della ricerca oncologica? Attraverso storie di vita ed esperienze di laboratorio, Alberto Mantovani racconta il complesso mondo del cancro e le varie fasi della guerra condotta da secoli dalla medicina per debellarlo, una straordinaria avventura fatta di alti e bassi, di successi e momenti bui, ma caratterizzata da costanti progressi nella conoscenza, nella diagnosi e nella terapia. In questo scenario, agli approcci di cura tradizionali come la chirurgia, la radioterapia, la chemioterapia e le terapie mirate, che pure hanno dato notevoli risultati, si affianca oggi l'immunoterapia. Sono infatti numerose le armi del sistema immunitario (come gli anticorpi, i vaccini e le cellule stesse dell'immunità) usate con successo nella lotta al cancro e nella prevenzione, tanto che l'immunoterapia sta cambiando e sempre più cambierà la storia naturale di molti tipi di tumore. Coronando così il sogno dei padri della medicina d'inizio Novecento di sconfiggere il cancro utilizzando le nostre difese naturali. Ma se l'obiettivo dichiarato dell'autore è condividere le sue conoscenze su un argomento di così ampio interesse, la sua «ambiziosa speranza» è quella di «riuscire a fornire al lettore gli strumenti per "autoimmunizzarsi" nei confronti di tutte quelle "fake news" che riguardano cure o tecniche di prevenzione del cancro tanto miracolose quanto prive di ogni fondamento scientifico. E che, travestite da false speranze, creano solo amare illusioni».
