Keywords: Medicine ; Cancer Research ; Molecular Biology ; Biomedicine ; Cancer Research ; Molecular Medicine ; Springer eBooks
Description / Table of Contents: Chapter 1 BTK inhibitors: focus on ibrutinib and similar agents -- Chapter 2 BCL2 Inhibitors: insights into resistance -- Chapter 3 Proteasome Inhibitors with a Focus on Bortezomib -- Chapter 4 IMiD – immunomodulatory drug lenalidomide (CC-5013; Revlimid) in the treatment of lymphoma: Insights into clinical use and molecular mechanisms -- Chapter 5 mTOR inhibitors, with special focus on temsirolimus and similar agents -- Chapter 6 Inhibitors of the JAK/STAT pathway, with a focus on ruxolitinib and similar agents
Abstract: In the last decade, the literature on molecular mechanisms and activated pathways in the different lymphoma categories increased exponentially, which was followed by a more diffuse and successful use of targeted therapies. In this book, expert authors revisit the most relevant aspects of these therapies, with special emphasis on molecular mechanisms and clinical effects of resistance. The knowledge of the underlying mechanisms involved in tumor resistance to target therapies is of paramount importance because they will result in a better selection of patients with sensitive disease and the establishment of suitable combinations of drugs that target different molecules and could overcome the established resistance.℗

Cis/Transgene Optimization : Systematic Discovery of Novel Gene Expression Elements Using Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Approaches (2018)
Cham : Springer International Publishing
Keywords: Life sciences ; Bioinformatics ; Proteomics ; Systems Biology ; Computational Biology ; Life sciences ; Computer Appl. in Life Sciences ; Systems Biology ; Computational Biology/Bioinformatics ; Proteomics ; Springer eBooks
Description / Table of Contents: 1. Introduction -- 2. Systematic Strategies -- 3. Outcomes Assessment -- 4. Conceptual Models
Abstract: This book is a practical review which focuses on computational analysis and on in silicoapproaches towards the systematic discovery of various key functional gene expression elements in microalgae as a model. So far, in this regard very little information is available. Efficient stepwise procedures for analysing the matrix attachment regions (MARs) are outlined, as well as for translation initiation sites (TIS), signal peptide (SP) sequences, gene optimization and transformation systems. These outlines can be efficiently deployed as practical models for the systematic discovery of key expression elements and for the optimization of cis/transgenes in other micro/organisms. The first chapter is an introduction on the key gene expression elements analysed in this book, including scaffold/matrix attachment regions, translation initiation sites, signal peptides as well as gene optimization. Chapter 2 focuses on systematic strategies and computational approaches toward in silico analysis of each factor. The analyses outcomes is assessed individually in chapter 3 followed by developing the specific conceptual models for each element in Chapter 4. The concluding remarks are discussed in Chapter 5. This work is of interest to computational and experimental biologists interested in transcriptional regulation analysis as well as to researchers and scientists who wish to consider the use of bioinformatics and computational biology in design, analysis, or regulatory reviews of key gene expression elements for the production of recombinant proteins experiments

Abstract: In organizing the second edition of this renowned Handbook, Dr. Neoptolemos and his co-editors have produced and updated a revised edition to the distinguished Major Reference Work devoted to pancreatic cancer. Like its preceding edition, the second edition continues to have a widespread appeal among clinicians, pathologists and basic scientists, who are now struggling to understand this complex and rapidly expanding field. Because of the recent and vast growth in both the clinical and scientific research being done in pancreatic cancer, (there is currently an unprecedented investment by academia and industry in this field), each research’s knowledge of other specialty areas outside his or her own is often quite limited. The aim of the new edition is to place the tangible advances, including new developments in surgical approaches with regards to resection techniques, the state of laparoscopic approaches, the growing impact of surgical approaches in the management of recurrent pancreatic cancer, controversies in the management of IMPN as the precursor lesion for PDAC and others – readily at hand. The second edition focuses on advances that will not become dated, and the editors have chosen authors, who are the very best in each area

Keywords: Life sciences ; Cancer Research ; Geriatrics ; Stem Cells ; Cell Physiology ; Regenerative Medicine ; Tissue Engineering ; Life sciences ; Stem Cells ; Regenerative Medicine/Tissue Engineering ; Cell Physiology ; Cancer Research ; Geriatrics/Gerontology ; Springer eBooks
Abstract: This volume provides insight into the pivotal roles of stem cells, exosomes and other microvesicles in biofunction and molecular mechanisms and their therapeutic potential in translational nanomedicine. It further highlights evidence from recent studies as to how stem cell derived exosomes and microRNAs may restore and maintain tissue homeostasis, enable cells to recover critical cellular functions and begin repair regeneration. These early studies in animal models of aging also show evidence of improved immune, cardiovascular and cognitive functions as well as improved health span and life span. The use of exosomes from body fluids to define specific biomarkers for various tumors may also clear the path to patient-targeted treatments by developing exosome-derived microRNA based cancer therapeutics. It is essential reading for graduate students, research fellow and biomedical researchers in academia or the pharmaceutical or biotech industries

Quality Management in Scientific Research : Challenging Irreproducibility of Scientific Results (2018)
Cham : Springer International Publishing
Keywords: Medicine ; Life sciences ; Biomedicine ; Biomedicine general ; Life Sciences, general ; Springer eBooks
Description / Table of Contents: Part I: Principles, references and standards -- Quality basics -- Total Quality Management -- Quality certification and accreditation -- Quality Standards -- PART II: Quality and Basic Biomedical Research -- What is Basic Biomedical Research -- Conscious Management -- Quality along the Research project -- International references and models -- Quality management in basic biomedical research -- Part III: Methodologies and tools -- 7 basic tools of TQM -- Decision making -- Problem solving -- Teamworking -- Project Management -- Knowledge Management -- Failure Mode and Effect Analysis.-Design of experiment -- Lean Management and Six Sigma -- Conclusion.-Acknowledgements -- Bibliography -- References
Abstract: In recent years, the attention of the scientific and social community has not solely been on producing new findings, but increasingly also on the related issues of the reliability, safety, and efficacy of the discoveries made, as well as the efficient and effective use of resources. The adoption of management models and tools can help scientists to improve their research, ensuring valuable, robust and dependable outcomes. Quality disciplines have been widely used for decades in industrial and business fields, building a knowledge base that can be translated and exploited, much to the advantage of scientific research. However, quality references in scientific research are still extremely rare and largely limited to an international guideline and a few sector-specific standards. Despite WHO and EU Commission campaigns, there are still precious few practical texts that offer researchers guidance on quality principles and provide simple tools and methodologies for their daily work. The book, starting from the problem of the reproducibility of scientific results and the substantial contribution that the Quality approach can make to research (Chapter 1), introduces the reader to key principles and basic concepts of Quality and illustrates both general and research-specific quality standards, paving the way for further discussion (Chapter 2). In turn, Chapter 3 presents detailed applications of Quality principles in various aspects of research, from study and ethics to materials and equipment management. Chapters 4 and 5, respectively, are devoted to Quality tools and Quality methodologies, as well as soft skills, all of which are valuable to scientific experimentation and study management. The concepts and practical tools discussed are extensively illustrated with examples from actual applications in scientific research
