Global gene expression profiling is a new and comprehensive approach to the investigation of tumor biology that has the potential to sharply alter the future of cancer research, diagnostic pathology, and clinical oncology. In Expression Profiling of Human Tumors: Diagnostic and Research Applications, over 20 leading investigators offer the first thorough review of the application of this novel technology to human tumors. The authors focus on the analysis of human tissue samples for a variety of cancers, including breast, colorectal, lung, renal, ovarian, bone, and brain tumors, among others. For each cancer type, the authors assess the potential of the approach in reaching more precise diagnoses, as well as in the identification of prognostic markers, therapeutic targets, and gene expression patterns that accurately predict therapeutic response. A section on the technology and its novel analytical methods explains both the theory and practice of comprehensive gene expression profiling Timely and topical, Expression Profiling of Human Tumors: Diagnostic and Research Applications provides every cancer researcher, oncologist, pathologist, and cancer surgeon an essential introduction to the most promising high-throughput investigative approach in molecular biology today-a technology that is already dramatically reshaping the future of cancer research, diagnostic pathology, and clinical oncology
