Biomarkers in Neoplastic Neuropathology by Fausto Rodriguez, Cheng-Ying Ho

By Fausto Rodriguez, Cheng-Ying Ho

This publication is a wealthy resource of data on biomarkers appropriate to the pathology of neoplastic issues of the mind. Thorough descriptions are supplied of the strategies at present to be had for scientific and experimental review of biomarkers in mind neoplasms, together with in situ hybridization, array-based tools, methylation profiling, next-generation sequencing, and functional gene panels. Incorporation of a number of biomarkers within the improvement of molecular subgroups with biologic and healing relevance can also be mentioned. a piece on biobanking covers the both very important subject of optimum protection of tissue and comprises attention of moral concerns raised via tissue got in scientific settings. The ultimate part discusses the key different types of neoplastic problems regarding the anxious method, with emphasis on diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive biomarkers utilized in the pathologic evaluate of alternative forms of mind tumor.

The Anatomy of “Paleocortex”: A Critical Review

The best objective of this paper is to examine the quarter of mind which many authors name 'paleocortex' and to invite how a lot of the world it embraces might be defined competently as cortex. earlier than this is thought of it is vital to have a few proposal of what constitutes a cortex. for this reason, within the first a part of the paper the factors utilized in developing classifications of cortex are seemed into.

A history of human anatomy

Many advances in drugs and surgical procedure might be without delay associated with advancements in figuring out the constitution and serve as of the human physique. in the course of the 16th century, the examine of human anatomy grew to become an goal self-discipline, in response to direct statement and medical ideas. no longer unusually, the examine of human anatomy has improved to its common reputation and popularity as a systematic self-discipline, crucial for the perform of recent drugs.

Currently, many biobanks adopt the “open consent” mechanism – a single broad consent for all future use of biomaterial and data [4]. While the requirement of a “purpose-limited consent” for specific research activity remains debatable, many will agree that the consent needs to comply with individual institutional regulations and government laws. Snap-Frozen Tissue Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue stored in diagnostic pathology archives represents the major source of solid tissue samples in most biobanks.

Coupled with microarray-based analyses, MIRA is a powerful tool to provide high-resolution genome-wide methylation profiling. Bisulfite Conversion-Based Assays The gold standard for DNA methylation analysis of individual genes is bisulfite treatment of DNA followed by microarray analysis or sequencing [74]. Bisulfite treatment of DNA converts unmethylated cytosine residues to uracil but leaves 5-methylcytosine residues unaltered. Cytosines converted to uracil will be recognized as thymine, whereas bisulfite-resistant 5-methylcytosines remain as cytosines in subsequent PCR amplification and sequencing [76].
