Dermatology Books: cosmetic dermoscopy general infectious pediatric surgery tumors
By Igor Buchwalow
2010 (1st ed), 153 pages, $179 list
The authors carefully selected the methods and easy-to-adopt protocols discussed. In addition to estabished techniques, special attention was paid to current developments in immunohistochemistry such as antigen retrieval, signal amplification, the use of epitope tags, multiple immunolabeling, and diagnostic immunohistochemistry. All procedures examined have been tested by the authors; many are routinely used in daily practice in their institute. Each chapter starts with a short introduction to the respective method’s underlying principles before presenting step-by-step protocols and instructions, including precise recipes for all materials needed. Thus, the book is suitable for a broad audience, ranging from students and technical assistants to experienced researchers.
By Richard Burry
2009 (1st ed), 209 pages, 82 illus, $90 list
The philosophy which separates this book from other books in this field is that it is practical, rather than academic. In looking at other important immunocytochemistry titles, the predominant orientation is academic, with the author attempting to comprehensively discuss the topic. For example, one book with sample preparation lists ten fixatives which can be used; however, only two such fixatives are commonly used today. In this particular title, the detailed discussion of old methods might be seen as important in establishing the author as an expert. By contrast, the approach for Burry’s book would be to discuss methods based on what works in animal research laboratories today, and focus only on the most productive methods.

Dabbs, MD and other leading experts bring you state-of-the-art coverage on genomic and theranostic applications, molecular anatomic pathology, immunocytology, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and more. Additional features such as tables discussing antibody specifications, differential diagnosis boxes, ancillary anatomic molecular diagnostics, and full-color histological images ensure user-friendly coverage that makes key information easy to find and apply. The fully searchable text is also available online at expertconsult.com, along with a downloadable image bank and access to Path Consult. This concise and complete resource is today's indispensable guide to the effective use of immunohistochemical diagnosis.
Hayat: Handbook of Immunohistochemistry and in Situ Hybridization of Human Carcinomas: Molecular Genetics: Lung and Breast Carcinomas (Vol 1)
By M.A. Hayat
May 2004, 556 pages
This book discusses all aspects of immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization technologies and the important role they play in reaching a cancer diagnosis. It provides step-by-step instructions on the methods of additional molecular technologies such as DNA microarrays, and microdissection, along with the benefits and limitations of each method. The topics of region-specific gene expression, its role in cancer development and the techniques that assist in the understanding of the molecular basis of disease are relevant and necessary in science today, ensuring a wide audience for this book.
Kalyuzhny: Signal Transduction Immunohistochemistry
By Alexander Kalyuzhny
2011 (1st ed), 315 pages, $119 list
In Signal Transduction Immunohistochemistry: Methods and Protocols, IHC experts contribute detailed protocols addressing the numerous challenges of signal-transduction immunohistochemistry (ST-IHC). Beginning with a set of introductory chapters, the volume moves on to cover techniques used for the preservation of antigens and their unmasking, protocols in digital imaging and image analysis of stained cells and tissues, high-throughput data collection and data analysis, and techniques used in neuroscience as well as cancer and stem cell research. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include brief introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Signal Transduction Immunohistochemistry: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide for novices and as a bastion of inspiring ideas to be exploited by experienced researchers on the lookout for new experimental tricks and hints.
Kiernan: Histological and Histochemical Methods: Theory and Practice
By John Kiernan
2008 (1st ed), 606 pages, $73 list
The chemical and physical principles of fixation, staining, and histochemistry in one volume! Now in its fourth edition, Histological and Histochemical Methods has been expanded and updated with the latest techniques and developments within the field, whilst retaining the details of the classic techniques still in use. The relations of chemical structures and reactions to fixation, tissue processing, staining, enzyme location, immunohistochemistry and other procedures are explained in simple, descriptive terms.
This book is recommended for lecturers and students in biological and biomedical disciplines using histological and histochemical techniques. Postgraduate researchers will find this to be the ideal laboratory companion, as will medical laboratory technologists preparing for their professional examinations.
Lin: Handbook of Practical Immunohistochemistry

Prakhya: Immunohistochemistry and BRCA1 genetics of breast cancers
By Srivatsa Prakhya
2013 (1st ed), 120 pages, $64 list
Breast cancers are a growing problem worldwide owing to their heterogeneity. This calls for extensive research to look into the issue in detail to offer solutions to patients. The field of Molecular pathology offers promising results from bench to bedside. In this work, an attempt was made to analyse the diverse characteristics of this deadly diseases in a small population in rural India. genetic mutation was seen in all of the patients - an alarming observation. Ancillary studies such as immunohistochemistry facilitate in subtyping the tumor for effective treatment. However, more research is warranted to directly correlate BRCA1 gene mutations to the cancer. Gene therapy would then prove useful.
Puri: Immunohistichemistry - Techniques and Practical Issues
By Anchal Puri
2012 (1st ed), 152 pages, $75 list
Immunohistochemistry is a technique for identifying cellular or tissue constituents (antigens) by means of antigen-antibody interactions, the site of antibody binding being identified either by direct labelling of the antibody, or by use of a secondary labelling method. Immunohistochemical staining is widely used in the diagnosis of abnormal cells such as those found in tumors. Specific molecular markers are characteristic of particular cellular events such as proliferation or cell death (apoptosis).
