Chu: Modern Immunohistochemistry
By Peiguo Chu
2014 (1st ed), 528 pages, 1100 illus, $200 list
Since the publication of the first edition of this best-selling book in 2009, the field of immunohistochemistry has advanced significantly. Fully updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, Modern Immunohistochemistry, Second Edition, is a practical guide to all the important diagnostic markers in each organ system. Concise text is supplemented by over 1,100 high-quality colour images and algorithms. The new edition features even more summary tables, highlighting the key points of differential immunophenotypic panels. A new, expanded introduction explains the basic principles of immunohistochemistry, and chapters have been updated to incorporate predictive/prognostic markers and the latest WHO classifications. All chapters are written by the same expert authors, providing a consistent, engaging style throughout and avoiding contradictory advice. An essential text for residents, this is also an extremely valuable resource for practitioners in anatomic pathology wishing to familiarise themselves with diagnostic markers at a quick glance.
Dabbs: Diagnostic Immunohistochemistry
By David Dabbs
2013 (4th ed), 960 pages, $399 list
Diagnostic Immunohistochemistry presents the latest information and most reliable guidance on immunohistological diagnoses in surgical pathology. David J. 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, 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.
Dasgupta: Clinical Chemistry, Immunology and Laboratory Quality Control
By Amitava Dasgupta and Amer Wahed
2014, 504 pages, $61 list
All pathology residents must have a good command of clinical chemistry, toxicology, immunology, and laboratory statistics to be successful pathologists, as well as to pass the American Board of Pathology examination. Clinical chemistry, however, is a topic in which many senior medical students and pathology residents face challenges. Clinical Chemistry, Immunology and Laboratory Quality Control meets this challenge head on with a clear and easy-to-read presentation of core topics and detailed case studies that illustrate the application of clinical chemistry knowledge to everyday patient care.
Lin: Handbook of Practical Immunohistochemistry: Frequently Asked Questions
By Fan Lin
2015 (2nd ed), 748 pages, 461 illus, $265 list
In a conceptually current, quick-reference, Question & Answer format, the second edition of Handbook of Practical Immunohistochemistry: Frequently Asked Questions continues to provide a comprehensive and yet concise state-of-the-art overview of the major issues specific to the field of immunohistochemistry. With links to the authors Immunohistochemical Laboratory website, this volume creates a current and up-to-date information system on immunohistochemistry. This includes access to tissue microarrays (TMA) of over 10,000 tumors and normal tissue to validate common diagnostic panels and provide the best reproducible data for diagnostic purposes.
Nadji: Efficient Tumor Immuhistochemistry
By Mehrdad Nadji
2006 (1st ed), 325 pages, 574 illus, $200 list
The title of this publication is "Efficient Tumor Immunohistochemistry: A Differential Diagnosis-Driven Approach". This book represents a vast leap forward in advacing the practical value of IHC in today's surgical laboratory by meeting the critical need for guidance in selecting markers that will take you from differential diagnosis to final diagnosis quickly and confidently.
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).
