<p>This volume, with chapters written by experts in the field of cancerous tumors, details the key factors associated with liquid biopsies in solid tumors: blood-based diagnostics; circulating tumor cells; enumeration and molecular analysis (association with breast cancer); epithelialmesenchymal transition; detection and monitoring; circulating-free tumor DNA; CTCs and ctDNA; and the exosome. The field of blood-based diagnostics is rapidly evolving demonstrating the possibility of real-time molecular analysis of cancer cells and their phenotype and genotype.</p><p>Circulating Tumor Cell (CTCs) have demonstrated prognostic and predictive value in advanced cancer and represents a source of tumor cells for transcriptome and genomic analysis. Most recently, the detection of genomic abnormalities in the peripheral blood by sensitive and selective PCR methods (liquid biopsy) opened to the option of a comprehensive blood-based tumor analysis. Similar information can be obtained by analysis of exosome, a natural packaging and messaging system being explored in advanced malignancies. The final frontier is the evaluation of immune cells determinant of innate and adaptive immunity.</p><p><br /></p><p><b><br /></b></p><p><br /></p>

Sottoposta, a partire dagli anni ‘60 del Novecento, a critiche radicali incentrate sulla pratica manicomiale, la psichiatria ha recuperato il terreno perduto grazie anche all’imponente sostegno delle industrie farmaceutiche e, con un’incessante propaganda mediatica, ha conseguito un grande prestigio agli occhi dell’opinione pubblica. Tale prestigio non ha alcun fondamento.<br />La pratica psichiatrica contemporanea è sempre più burocratica e oggettivante. Tende a etichettare come malattie esperienze psicopatologiche di vario genere con modalità tali da evocare la possibilità che un computer programmato sulla base dei criteri diagnostici del DSM-V giungerà rapidamente a sostituire l’intervento umano. Questo andazzo che produce, specie nei pazienti giovani, più svantaggi che vantaggi, orientandoli verso un’interminabile cronicizzazione all’insegna di cure farmacologiche che si protraggono vita natural durante, è intollerabile. Tanto più perché la psichiatria sostiene che le recenti scoperte avvenute nell’ambito delle neuroscienze confermano le sue ipotesi di fondo. È un’impostura.<br />La verità nuda e cruda è che la pratica psichiatrica corrente è una rottamazione di esseri umani che produce enormi profitti.<br />La querelle che con questo libro l’autore intende riaprire, dando seguito a "Miseria della neopsichiatria" e a "Star male di testa", non ha, però, alcun intento demonizzante e tanto meno ideologico. Eccezion fatta per singole persone, gli psichiatri non sono mostri. È vero però che agiscono comportamenti e adottano strategie che sono nocivi, improduttivi e a lungo andare iatrogeni. Determinano insomma, a partire da esperienze giovanili che sono sempre comprensibili e rimediabili, un decorso tale per cui la malattia diagnosticata originariamente si realizza. Per ribaltare questa situazione occorre accettare la sfida sul piano scientifico, vale a dire contrapporre alla teoria e alla pratica psichiatrica un modello alternativo capace di comprendere e di spiegare i fenomeni psicopatologici, illuminando la loro comprensibilità. Il principio di fondo del saggio è che tutto ciò che è comprensibile in termini psicodinamici non può essere ricondotto a una presunta malattia del cervello. Il suo intento è di dimostrare, alla luce dell’analisi di numerose esperienze psicopatologiche gravi, che tutti i fenomeni psicopatologici sono comprensibili se si adotta un codice interpretativo adeguato, che, ovviamente, trascende la banalità del senso comune cui fanno riferimento gli psichiatri. La prova di questo assunto è fornita dal fatto che le analisi delle esperienze sono state convalidate da parecchi dei diretti interessati, pazienti ed ex-pazienti.<br />Seconda edizione riveduta e ampliata.

MRI from Picture to Proton

MR is a powerful modality. At its most advanced, it can be used not just to image anatomy and pathology, but to investigate organ function, to probe in vivo chemistry, and even to visualise the brain thinking. However, clinicians, technologists and scientists struggle with the study of the subject. The result is sometimes an obscurity of understanding, or a dilution of scientific truth, resulting in misconceptions. This is why MRI from Picture to Proton has achieved its reputation for practical clarity. MR is introduced as a tool, with coverage starting from the images, equipment and scanning protocols and traced back towards the underlying physics theory. With new content on quantitative MRI, MR safety, multi-band excitation, Dixon imaging, MR elastography and advanced pulse sequences, and with additional supportive materials available on the book's website, this new edition is completely revised and updated to reflect the best use of modern MR technology.

This book provides up-to-date information on all aspects of orofacial pain biomarkers. It opens by presenting background information on clinical phenotypes and the neurobiological substrates underlying chronic orofacial pain and by explaining the potential role of biomarkers in the diagnosis, prognostic evaluation, and treatment of orofacial pain. The main section of the book examines the contribution of human and animal studies to the field of biomarkers for orofacial pain and discusses biomarkers for masticatory muscle pain, temporomandibular joint pain, neuropathic face pain, and autonomic nervous system involvement in trigeminal facial pain. The potential impacts of the immune system on orofacial pain biomarkers and candidate gene phenotypes with possible links to chronic orofacial pain conditions are also addressed, and differences and similarities between saliva and serum biomarkers for pain are explained as well. The final section covers research-related issues in assessment methods and statistical analyses used in evaluating biomarkers, identifies future challenges and suggests new directions in the field.
