HOFFBRAND ESSENTIAL HAEMATOLOGY PDF

This new knowledge is due largely to the application of next generation sequencing of DNA which has enabled the detection of the genetic mutations, inherited or acquired, that underlie these diseases. The complexity of the molecular changes underlying the malignant diseases and the relevance of this to their sensitivity or resistance to therapy is becoming apparent. This new knowledge has been accompanied by spectacular improvements in therapy. Inhibition of the B cell receptor signalling pathway has transformed the life expectancy in many patients with resistant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and some of the B cell lymphomas resistant to other therapy. JAK2 inhibitors are improving the quality of life and survival in primary myelofibrosis. Survival in myeloma is improving remarkably with new proteasome inhibitory and immunomodulatory drugs.

This new knowledge is due largely to the application of next generation sequencing of DNA which has enabled the detection of the genetic mutations, inherited or acquired, that underlie these diseases. The complexity of the molecular changes underlying the malignant diseases and the relevance of this to their sensitivity or resistance to therapy is becoming apparent.

This new knowledge has been accompanied by spectacular improvements in therapy. Inhibition of the B cell receptor signalling pathway has transformed the life expectancy in many patients with resistant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and some of the B cell lymphomas resistant to other therapy. JAK2 inhibitors are improving the quality of life and survival in primary myelofibrosis.

Survival in myeloma is improving remarkably with new proteasome inhibitory and immunomodulatory drugs. Life expectancy has also improved for patients with diseases such as thalassaemia major receiving multiple transfusions with the worldwide introduction of orally active iron chelating agents. New anticoagulants which directly inhibit at a single point in the coagulation cascade and rarely need monitoring are now used commonly in preference to warfarin for the treatment and prevention of arterial and venous thrombosis.

These advances in knowledge have been incorporated as new text, diagrams and tables for this seventh edition. New multiple choice questions have been added to the website and short summary boxes are included at the end of each chapter More Info.

Hoffbrand's Essential Haematology, 8th Edition

He established the first reliable method for measuring red cell folate and used this assay to determine the incidence of folate deficiency in a wide range of clinical diseases. He established a major Clinical and Laboratory in Haematology Department, teaching both undergraduates and postgraduates. Within his department, he began an immunology section, later to become a major independent department. Research was mainly into malignant haematological diseases. In conjunction with George Janossy and Mel Greaves, newly discovered monoclonal antibodies were used to classify and diagnose leukaemias and lymphomas. Molecular biological techniques were added to the biological, biochemical and immunological research. The Department expanded, attracting many research fellows internationally.
