This book offers essential information on basic and translational research in gastric cancer, while also illustrating potential opportunities for its application in clinical practice. Gastric cancer is the fourth-most-common cancer globally and the second-leading cause of cancer deaths. It is known to be a heterogeneous disease with varied responses to “one-size-fits-all” treatments. Expanding our knowledge of cancer cell genetics may help us to explore more effective treatments in gastric cancer.

Series: Innovative Pathology Press Survival Guide
This volume on the mucosal gastrointestinal pathology provides the basics and a framework to diagnose the common lesions together with a few exotic lesions that are important. In some sections the focus is on patterns of injury whereas in others, the key is paying attention to the specific type of mucosa that is injured. The authors point out a few pitfalls in each section. This volume is intended to help not only residents but also fully trained pathologists who begin to tackle an organ system that is unfamiliar to them or want to add or refresh knowledge.

Series: AFIP Tumor 4th edition
There have been many advances in the pathology of intestinal tumors since the publication of the Third Series Intestines Fascicle in 2003, but many of the foundations of intestinal tumor diagnosis remain tried and true. Tubular adenomas are still tubular adenomas, but better understanding of serrated polyps has been a key advance in the years since the publication of the Third Series volume. Additionally, developments in molecular biology of colorectal carcinoma have allowed for targeted therapy and refinements to our evaluation of Lynch syndrome, which was termed hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal carcinoma (HNPCC) in the past. Our understanding of other polyposis syndromes has similarly blossomed in the past 15 years. Neuroendocrine tumors have been reclassified in the 2010 World Health Organization classification of gastrointestinal tumors. The molecular basis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors of the intestines has been a subject of great interest as well. In producing this update, this group of authors has enjoyed working together in gathering images and information to update this edition of the Intestines atlas. In doing so, we stand on the shoulders of giants before us, namely Drs. Robert H. Riddell, Robert E. Petras, Geraint T. Williams, and Leslie H. Sobin.

Series: AFIP Tumor 4th edition
In this Atlas of Tumors of the Pancreas, Drs. Hruban, Pitman and Klimstra succinctly summarize the clinical literature, but concentrate on both new entities and new concepts, described since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle ten years ago. The illustrations, with the exception of radiographs and electron micrographs, are in color, and tumors are presented in detail. The continuing importance of tumor morphology in directing molecular studies is appropriately emphasized.
