Molecular Pathology of Neoplastic Gastrointestinal Diseases

Molecular Pathology of Neoplastic Gastrointestinal Diseases reviews the molecular aspects that characterize the spectrum of neoplastic conditions that affect the gastrointestinal tract, providing the reader with current up-to-date knowledge. For each disease entity chapters provide reviews on:
the molecular basis of the individual diseasemolecular testing approaches currently available or in development for diagnosis or for gene target characterization for selective targeted therapiesrecommended guidelines for clinical application of molecular tests are included whenever availablemolecular testing for hereditary predisposition or disease riskanimal models and cell culture models of disease
