Renal cell carcinoma

The treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has changed greatly over the past 15 years. Progress in the surgical management of the primary tumor and increased understanding of the molecular biology and genomics of the disease have led to the development of new therapeutic agents. The management of the primary tumor has changed owing to the realization that clean margins around the primary lesion are sufficient to prevent local recurrence, as well as the development of more sophisticated tools and techniques that increase the safety of partial nephrectomy. The management of advanced disease has altered even more dramatically as a result of new agents that target the tumor vasculature or that attenuate the activation of intracellular oncogenic pathways. This review summarizes data from prospective randomized phase III studies on the surgical management and systemic treatment of RCC, and provides an up to date summary of the histology, genomics, staging, and prognosis of RCC. It describes the management of the primary tumor and offers an overview of systemic agents that form the mainstay of treatment for advanced disease. The review concludes with an introduction to the exciting new class of immunomodulatory agents that are currently in clinical trials and may form the basis of a new therapeutic approach for patients with advanced RCC.

3 Most Important Types of Biological Variables

Each biological discipline has its own set of variables, which may include conventional morphological measurements, concentra­tions of chemicals in body fluids, rates of certain biological proces­ses, frequencies of certain events as in genetics and radiation bio­logy and many more.

Asthma: pathogenesis and novel drugs for treatment

Asthma affects almost 20 million people in the United States and more than 300 million people worldwide. Of these, 10-15% have severe asthma, which is refractory to commonly available drugs. New drugs are needed because those that are currently available cannot control symptoms and exacerbations in all patients and can cause adverse reactions. In the past 10 years, there have been substantial advances in the understanding of asthma genetics, airway biology, and immune cell signaling. These advances have led to the development of small molecule therapeutics and biologic agents that may improve asthma care in the future. Several new classes of asthma drugs—including ultra long acting β agonists and modulators of the interleukin 4 (IL-4), IL-5, IL-13, and IL-17 pathways—have been evaluated in randomized controlled trials. Other new drug classes—including dissociated corticosteroids, CXC chemokine receptor 2 antagonists, toll-like receptor 9 agonists, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors—remain in earlier phases of development. Despite some preliminary efficacy data, there is insufficient evidence to make strong recommendations about the use of these newer agents. Future research on the clinical efficacy of these biologic agents, the effect of newer agents on severe asthma in pediatric patients, and the biology of non-eosinophilic and corticosteroid resistant asthma is needed to reduce the morbidity of asthma worldwide.

High-yield Genetics

High-Yield™ Genetics is an important addition to the High-Yield™ Series, which medical students rely on heavily to review for the USMLE. This new volume provides a concise, clinically oriented summary of genetics in the popular High-Yield™ outline format. The book is generously illustrated with schematic line drawings as well as photographs of the most clinically relevant diseases. Illustrations appear at the end of each chapter in a multi-panel figure, similar to a mini-atlas.

Molecular and Genetic Basis of Renal Disease

This companion to Brenner and Rector's The Kidney offers a state-of-the-art summary of the most recent advances in renal genetics. Molecular and Genetic Basis for Renal Disease provides the nephrologist with a comprehensive look at modern investigative tools in nephrology research today, and reviews the molecular pathophysiology of the nephron as well as the most common genetic and acquired renal diseases. A comprehensive clinical review of Medelian renal disease is also be included.Detailed review of the molecular anatomy and pathophysiology of the nephron that provides relevant basic science to consider when diagnosing and managing patients with these disorders.

Molecular Pathology of Lung Cancer

As with other books in the Molecular Pathology Library Series, Molecular Pathology of Lung Cancer bridges the gap between the molecular specialist and the clinical practitioner, including the surgical pathologist who now has a key role in decisions regarding molecular targeted therapy for lung cancer. Molecular Pathology of Lung Cancer provides the latest information and current insights into the molecular basis for lung cancer, including precursor and preinvasive lesions, molecular diagnosis, molecular targeted therapy, molecular prognosis, molecular radiology and related fields for lung cancer generally and for the specific cell types. As many fundamental concepts about lung cancer have undergone revision in only the past few years, this book will likely be the first to comprehensively cover the new molecular pathology of lung cancer. It provides a foundation in this field for pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, thoracic radiologists and their trainees, physician assistants, and nursing staff.

Genetic project calls for 100 000 volunteers from Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities in east London

One of the world’s biggest community genetics studies has been launched with a call for 100 000 volunteers from the Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities in east London. Genetic data will be linked with health records held by local general practices with the aim of understanding better the links between genes and health in these close-knit communities.

Which Fields of Medicine do Phamarcogenomics Hold The Greatest Promise for?

Pharmacogenomics and pharmacogentics testing are nothing new, but the recent breakthroughs and lowered costs assosciated with genetic sequencing mean these breakthroughs are now more accessible than ever. Which fields of medicine do you think stand to benefit the most. Cancer research and psychiatry come to mind, but what other fields of medicine could this technology help as well?
