The Tumor Microenvironment

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Tumor Microenvironment by Rebecca G. Bagley Book Summary:

The fact that tumors are composed of both tumor cells and host cells has long been known. These tumor-associated cells include vascular endothelial cells and pe- cytes, as well as inflammatory cells such as neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, mast cells and eosinophils, and lymphocytes. The tumor cells also interact with stromal cells and with elements of the tissue extracellular matrix. What has been less appreciated is the role that these cells could have in modulating the growth, invasion, and metastasis of the tumor. Early on, the elements of what we now call the tumor microenvironment were considered to be more or less innocent bysta- ers to the role of the tumor cells as they grew and invaded local sites. Today, there is an increased understanding of the critical role of the tumor microenvironment as dramatically influencing the course of tumor development and dissemination. This volume represents a superb compilation of the latest thoughts and data regarding the role of each essential component of the tumor microenvironment in cancer development and progression. Perhaps, the earliest recognition of the role of nonmalignant cells as cancer re- lators was the recognition that lymphocytes can participate in what was termed “immune surveillance” in the 1960s. Our understanding of tumor immunity has improved markedly since then, and there are now successful clinical studies sh- ing the potential use of immune-based therapies in cancer treatment.

The Tumor by John Grisham,Focused Ultrasound Foundation Book Summary:

John Grisham says THE TUMOR is the most important book he has ever written. In this short book, he provides readers with a fictional account of how a real, new medical technology could revolutionize the future of medicine by curing with sound. THE TUMOR follows the present day experience of the fictional patient Paul, an otherwise healthy 35-year-old father who is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Grisham takes readers through a detailed account of Paul’s treatment and his family’s experience that doesn’t end as we would hope. Grisham then explores an alternate future, where Paul is diagnosed with the same brain tumor at the same age, but in the year 2025, when a treatment called focused ultrasound is able to extend his life expectancy. Focused ultrasound has the potential to treat not just brain tumors, but many other disorders, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, hypertension, and prostate, breast and pancreatic cancer. For more information or to order a free hardcopy of the book, please visit The Focused Ultrasound Foundation’s website Here you will find a video of Grisham on the TEDx stage with the Foundation’s chairman and a Parkinson’s patient who brings the audience to its feet sharing her incredible story of a focused ultrasound “miracle.” Readers will get a taste of the narrative they expect from Grisham, but this short book will also educate and inspire people to be hopeful about the future of medical innovation.

Innate and Adaptive Immunity in the Tumor Microenvironment

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Innate and Adaptive Immunity in the Tumor Microenvironment by Eitan Yefenof Book Summary:

Traditionally, the interplay between cancer cells and host immunity has been studied systemically. Recent studies, however, indicate that the tumor microenvironment is unique in providing both supportive and inhibitory factors that determine the fate of the tumor and its host. This volume compiles reviews on innate and adaptive immune responses at the tumor microenvironment with emphasis on positive and negative outcomes that affect the progression of the disease.

Regulation of Gene Expression in the Tumor Environment

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Regulation of Gene Expression in the Tumor Environment by Menashe Bar-Eli Book Summary:

It is now becoming very clear that the development and progression of tumor towards the malignant (metastatic) phenotype depends tightly on the interaction between the tumor cells and the tumor microenvironment. Tumor cells respond to stimuli generated within the tumor microenvironment for their growth advantage while the tumor cell themselves reshape and remodel the architecture and function of their extracellular matrices. The term tumor microenvironment is a wide umbrella consisting of stromal cells such as fibroblasts and endothelial cells and infiltration immune cells including T and B cells, macrophages, and other inflammatory cells (PMNs). These different components of the tumor microenvironment could have stimulatory and inhibitory effects on tumor progression by regulating the gene expression repertoire within the tumor cells on one hand and the stroma cells on the other. In this volume we have seven contributors who will discuss several different aspects on the cross talk within the tumor microenvironment components leading to the acquisition of the metastatic phenotype. It is our hope that these state-of-the-art studies will shed further light on our understanding of these complicated processes.

The Tumor Immunoenvironment

The Tumor Immunoenvironment by Michael R Shurin,Viktor Umansky,Anatoli Malyguine Book Summary:

Analysis of multidirectional immunological responses at the tumor site allows forming a new concept of The Tumor Immunoenvironment, which is introduced and discussed in the present book with a particular focus on the role of immune cells in controlling the tumor microenvironment at different stages of cancer development. The main goal of this publication is to provide an overview of the current knowledge on the complex and unique role of the immune system, tumor-associated inflammation and tumor-mediated immunomodulation in cancer progression in a way that allows understanding the logistics of cellular and molecular interactions in the tumor lesions.

Humor After the Tumor

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Humor After the Tumor by Patty Gelman Book Summary:

Breast cancer survivor Patty Gelman recounts her journey through "Cancer World" in a series of anecdotes, chronicling her year-long struggle with the disease in an upbeat, colloquial, and often candidly funny way. Typical of her unyieldingly positive attitude is the way that Gelman breaks the news to her mother, also a cancer survivor: "'Well, it's my turn now!'" Instead of keeping a journal during her treatment, Gelman preferred to share her experiences online, a choice she found surprisingly therapeutic. What started as periodic e-mails to family and friends soon developed into a book many cancer patients are turning to for hope. E-mails also served as an outlet and a built-in support group when her mother contracted lung cancer and passed on within the year. Gelman's story becomes larger than her disease, exploring the task of coping with the unexpected, and the value of family.

Shrinkage: Manhood, Marriage, and the Tumor That Tried to Kill Me

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Shrinkage: Manhood, Marriage, and the Tumor That Tried to Kill Me by Bryan Bishop Book Summary:

A New York Times bestseller! An Amazon Best Books of 2014 selection "If you're reading this, it means I'm already dead. Just kidding." In 2009, at thirty years old, Bryan Bishop's life was right on track. Known to millions as "Bald Bryan," the sidekick and soundman on the record-setting podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, his radio career was taking off. He was newly engaged. Then, he and his fiancée Christie were delivered a crushing blow when he was diagnosed with a brain stem glioma—an inoperable brain tumor. Suddenly Bryan's promising future was transformed into a grueling schedule of radiation and chemotherapy while facing his mortality. In this poignant narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and hysterical, Bishop shares the surreal experiences of writing his will with the bravado of a pulp novelist, taking chemo in a strip club, and (technically) the closest he ever got to achieving his lifelong dream of a threesome—when a physical therapist had to show his wife how to bathe him in the shower during his weakened state. Whether recounting his search for the most aggressive form of treatment, how radiation treatment jeopardized his ability to (literally) walk down the aisle or even smile for his wedding photos, or recalling the time his wife inadvertently drugged him in a pool in Maui, Bishop's inimitable voice radiates through his story. As the author celebrates how treatment shrunk his tumor and gave him a new lease on life, Shrinkage reveals the resilience of the human spirit—and the power of laughter—during even the darkest times.

Cancer Drug Delivery Systems Based on the Tumor Microenvironment

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Cancer Drug Delivery Systems Based on the Tumor Microenvironment by Yasuhiro Matsumura,David Tarin Book Summary:

This book proposes the importance of new systems of drug design and delivery based on cancer pathophysiology in addition to cancer molecular and cellular biology. The current studies based on molecular and cellular biology while ignoring pathophysiology and pharmacology may be leading the development of antitumor drugs in the wrong direction and wasting a lot of money. Although there have been numerous reports of genetic and phenotypic changes in tumors, a large body of pathological and clinical evidence supports the conclusion that there are no pivotal changes in tumor cells that distinguish them consistently and reliably from normal dividing cells. Unlike using antibiotics against bacterial infection, therefore, anticancer agents (ACAs) need to be delivered selectively to tumor tissues and should be kept there long enough to reproduce the concentrations they reach in the Petri dish, which is a closed space where the cytocidal effects of any anticancer agents (ACAs) including molecular targeting agents are very strong. In the body, however, administered ACAs are cleared with the passage of time. Furthermore, most human cancers possess abundant stroma that hinders the penetration of drugs into the tumor microenvironment. Therefore, to overcome these difficulties, novel drug delivery systems have been designed, such as nanoparticles and ACA conjugated antibodies to stromal components and to cancer cell surface antigens. These advances are described in this book after the first section, which describes core features of the pathophysiology of the cancer microenvironment, on which these new developments are based.

Chroniques de Ford County

The Tumor Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chroniques de Ford County by John GRISHAM Book Summary:

Un avocat frustré détourne des dommages-intérêts de ses clients ; un arnaqueur se prétend en partie amérindien pour ouvrir un casino ; un surveillant dans une maison de retraite manipule les patients et le personnel ; trois hommes partis en virée pour faire un don de sang s'arrêtent dans un club de strip-tease et finissent en prison ; la famille d'un homosexuel blanc atteint du sida demande à une vieille femme noire de le soigner jusqu'à sa mort... Dans un de ses livres les plus personnels, John Grisham nous emmène au coeur du comté du Mississippi où se déroulait déjà l'intrigue de son premier roman, Non coupable. Le sud des États-Unis et ses petites villes enclavées offrent, bien plus qu'un décor, un climat, un fi l conducteur et constituent presque un personnage à part entière. Tantôt captivantes, tantôt émouvantes, ces Chroniques de Ford County décrivent les destins ordinaires ou extraordinaires de personnages qui se révèlent étonnamment proches de nous : leurs sentiments et leurs faiblesses, brossés avec justesse et souvent beaucoup d'humour, sont universels. Au détour d'une histoire, au creux d'un portrait, on découvre, s'il en était encore besoin, le talent de conteur de John Grisham.
