Dieses Buch betrifft uns alle Sie waren notwendig, um Fortschritte gegen Krebs und AIDS zu erzielen. Klonen und Genforschung wäre ohne sie nicht möglich gewesen. Kurz: Die größten Erfolge der Medizin der letzten Jahrzehnte basieren auf der Entdeckung der HeLa-Zellen. Hinter dem Kürzel verbirgt sich eine Frau namens Henrietta Lacks. Die Afroamerikanerin aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen starb 1951 jung an Gebärmutterhalskrebs. Zuvor wurden ihr ohne ihr Wissen Zellproben entnommen, die sich überraschenderweise vermehrten. Damit war der entscheidende Durchbruch in der Zellkulturforschung geschafft. Die prämierte Wissenschaftsjournalistin Rebecca Skloot stellt in ihrem brillant verfassten Buch wichtige Jahrzehnte der Medizingeschichte vor und wirft dabei immer wieder ethische Fragen auf. Sie erzählt die tragische Familiengeschichte der Lacks’, die von Rassismus und mangelnden Bildungschancen geprägt ist. Ihr Buch ist eine gekonnte Mischung aus Biografie, Medizingeschichte, Debattenbuch und beachtlichem Enthüllungsjournalismus.

Advances in research and the treatment of cancer mean that more patients and their carers are asking healthcare professionals about the latest treatments and how they may be of benefit. It is essential that staff working with cancer patients understand fully how these new treatments work in order to disseminate timely and appropriate information to patients. The application of biology to the delivery of cancer care is playing an ever-increasing role in the management of these diseases. The Biology of Cancer: Second Edition provides details of the most recent developments in cancer care and is divided into three sections: Understanding Cancer – examines predisposing factors to developing cancer, diagnosis and its implications on the individual and society. The Science of Cancer – a closer look at the cell, genetics, the immune system, tumour markers and monoclonal antibodies. Research and Treatment – exploring translational oncology, applying research methodology to cancer research and research ethics relating to cancer. This fully updated edition also looks at evidence-based research that can be translated directly to patient care and gives details recent developments. Written by experienced, practicing healthcare professionals, The Biology of Cancer: Second Edition can easily be applied to patient care. It is an informative text for students, newly qualified nurses and practising oncology/palliative care nurses.

Of all the diseases that afflict mankind those described as 'cancer' evoke the strongest emotions. 'Cancer' connotes pain, protracted suffering, hideous growth and death. It is widely and justifiably feared. In medically advanced countries, malignant neoplasms (the official term for cancers) account for a substantial proportion of all deaths. Out of a total of 575194 deaths in Eng land and Wales during the year 1970, some 117076-or 20·4 per cent-were attributed to neoplasms of one kind or another (Registrar General, 1972). Diseases of the circulatory system-mainly arteriosclerotic and degenerative heart disease-claimed many more victims, being responsible for some 50·6 per cent of all deaths, but our psyche evidently responds more to the manner of the disease than to the number of deaths it causes. Many of us will have witnessed the deterioration of a close friend or relative suffering from an inoperable cancer: such an experience induces a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. The feelings of sorrow and distress can be a powerful stimulus to action and they often result in dedicated and tireless research efforts. At the same time, the very strength and depth of the commitment may sometimes be incompatible with the detachment that is needed for objective analysis and a wise strategy. Not too rigorously, we reason that if only we can discover the causes of cancer, then our problems will be solved and our agonies relieved. Remove the cause: prevent the cancer. The logic exerts an irresistible appeal.

The application of biology to the delivery of cancer care is playing an increasingly important role in the management of this group of diseases. Although there are a plethora of specialist cancer biology books, they are not aimed at nursing students and practising nurses. The aim of this book is to be an informative text for students, newly qualified nurses and practising oncology/palliative care nurses. It is also hoped that it will be a useful text for other health care professionals working in the field of cancer, so that the common questions asked by patients, and their families, can be answered with a clear understanding of the latest advancements in the management of an individual' s care.

Der perfekte Einstieg in die Neurowissenschaften – ideal zum Verstehen und Lernen Seit vielen Jahren zählt diese didaktisch durchdachte, verständlich geschriebene und hervorragend illustrierte Einführung zu den führenden Lehrbüchern im Bereich der Neurowissenschaften. Mit der Übersetzung liegt nun auch im deutschen Sprachraum ein modernes Grundlagenwerk zur Hirnforschung vor, das sich an Studierende der Biologie, der Medizin und der Psychologie gleichermaßen richtet. Der Bogen spannt sich von der Anatomie des Gehirns bis zur Sinnesphysiologie, von der Entwicklungsbiologie bis zum Verhalten, von den Störungen des Nervensystems bis zur Kognitionswissenschaft, von den molekularen Mechanismen bis zu den neuen bildgebenden Verfahren. Ein eigenständiger „Bildatlas der menschlichen Neuroanatomie“ erlaubt dem Lernenden, seine Kenntnisse der Hirnstrukturen zu überprüfen und zu erweitern. Jedes Kapitel endet mit Verständnisfragen und Übungsaufgaben sowie einer Zusammenstellung wichtiger weiterführender Literatur. In spannenden Exkursen berichten renommierte Wissenschaftler, wie sie zu ihren entscheidenden Entdeckungen kamen. So führt das Buch den Leser von den Grundlagen zu den aktuellen Forschungsthemen des Faches. Die von Andreas Engel herausgegebene deutsche Ausgabe ist an die hiesige Studiensituation angepasst und stellenweise erweitert. Ein elektronisches Zusatzangebot finden Sie auf www.spektrum-verlag.de/bear. Für Dozenten gibt es außerdem eine DVD mit sämtlichen Abbildungen für die Nutzung in der Lehre (ISBN 978-3-8274-2075-6). Den drei Verfassern des Buches gelingt, womit Lehrbuchautoren im deutschsprachigen Raum sich nach wie vor schwer tun: anschaulich und spannend den Leser vom Einstieg in die Grundlagen bis an die vorderste Front der Forschung mitzunehmen; ohne überflüssigen Ballast wissenschaftliche Erkenntnis mehr erzählend als erklärend zu vermitteln ... Ein didaktisches Meisterwerk ist nun endlich auch in deutscher Sprache verfügbar. Aus dem Vorwort von Prof. Andreas K. Engel, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf Dieser unveränderte Nachdruck ersetzt die bisherige ISBN 978-3-8274-2028-2 ((c) Springer Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2009, korr. Nachdruck 2012).

Der König aller Krankheiten

Krebs – eine Biografie

Die Geißel der Menschheit verstehen Seit über fünftausend Jahren lebt die Menschheit mit Krebs. Ebenso lange stirbt sie daran. Und doch gilt Krebs als eine »moderne« Erkrankung, weil keine andere Krankheit unsere Zeit dermaßen prägt. Bezeichnend sind die Namen, die man dem Krebs gegeben hat: »König aller Krankheiten« oder »ein Monster, unersättlicher als die Guillotine«. In seiner perfiden Perfektion, in seiner Anpassungsfähigkeit und seiner Widerstandskraft nimmt der Krebs beinahe menschliche Züge an. Seine Geschichte gleicht einer Biografie: Es ist die Geschichte von Leid, von Forscherdrang, Ideenreichtum und Beharrlichkeit – aber auch von Hochmut, Arroganz und unzähligen Fehleinschätzungen. Siddhartha Mukherjee widmet sich seinem Thema mit der Präzision eines Zellbiologen, mit der Kenntnis eines Historikers und mit der Passion eines Biografen. Fesselnd erzählt er von der persischen Königin Atossa, deren griechischer Sklave sie möglicherweise von ihrem Brustkrebs geheilt hat, von Erkrankten im 19. Jahrhundert, die erste Bestrahlungen und Chemotherapien über sich ergehen lassen mussten – und immer wieder von seinen eigenen Patienten. ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹ wirft einen faszinierenden Blick in die Zukunft der Krebsbehandlung und liefert eine brillante neue Perspektive auf die Art, wie Ärzte, Wissenschaftler, Philosophen und Laien den kranken – und den gesunden – Körper während Jahrtausenden begriffen haben.

The third edition of this repected textbook has been extensively revised and updated by the authors and editors to achieve the same objectives as the two earlier editions -- to provide a relatively brief but comprehensive introduction to the initiation, development, and treatment of cancer.After an introduction describing the pathology and natural history of the disease, subsequent chapters survey particular areas of research, concentrating on the principles involved and recent developments. Each topic is reviewed authoritatively by acknowledged experts, in a way that will beunderstood by non-experts in the field.The chapters on epidemiology, genetic and chromosome changes, oncogenes, chemical and radiation carcinogenesis, growth factors, the biology of human leukaemia, and hormones and cancer have been rewritten and/or extensively revised and new developments resulting from the wide application of currenttechniques in cellular and molecular biology to the study of cancer are included. Other chapters have been revised and brought up to date, and new chapters are inclueed on cytokines and cancer, the molecular pathology of cancer, and cancer prevention and screening.Introduction to the Molecular and Celluar Bilogy of Cancer provides a general survey of the whole field of cancer as a basis for research and will serve as a valuable introduction to students and scientists new to the field.
