In contemporary years a lot growth has been made in wisdom and figuring out of the biology of cutaneous cancer. during this admire etiological components, prognostic components, antigen expression of cancer cells, immune reaction and mechanisms of metastasis formation must be pointed out. it's the objective of this ebook to provide a assessment on primary points, prognosis and diagnosis, and therapy of cutaneous cancer and precursor lesions. furthermore, formerly unpublished new facts are offered. A post-graduate Boerhaave direction "Cutaneous cancer and Precursor Lesions" used to be held at Leiden college on 12 and thirteen April,. 1984. The court cases are contained during this quantity. The editors wish to thank all audio system and chairpersons at the direction, the Boerhaave Committee for its contribution to the service provider of the path, Upjohn Nederland for its monetary help and Mrs. I.A. Kruyff for her secretarial suggestions. Dirk Ruiter, Kees Welvaart and Soldano Ferrone, Leiden and Valhalla (NY), June, 1984.

Protein-Dye Interactions: Developments and Applications

This quantity includes the papers and reviews awarded on the First foreign convention on Dye-Protein interplay, held 24-28 July 1988 on the collage of Compiegne, France. This was once the 1st overseas assembly dealing solely with dye-protein interplay. the most important concentration of the convention used to be at the higher figuring out of the mechanism of interplay of proteins with diverse triazine dyes and the synthesis of novel structural dyes having reliable biomimetic actions.

Energetics of Stable Molecules and Reactive Intermediates

Covers the foremost experimental and theoretical tools presently used to check the energetics of solid molecules and reactive intermediates. studies the ate of the paintings and exhibits the interaction of experimental and theoretical equipment used to probe bonding energetics and reactivity and a variety of chemical species.

Gynecologic Oncology: Controversies and New Developments

Ordinarily, growth in drugs happens incrementally. The file of an 'important' new commentary is usually greeted by way of a mix of pleasure and skepticism. but the genuine price of the invention will not be recognized for numerous years until eventually it really is proven (or refuted) by means of independently performed experiences.

48 The phenotypic instability of melanoma cells as found here in vitro reflects in part the described heterog'eneity that can be detected in malignant melanoma biopsies. 4. PHENOTYPING OF MELANOMA BIOPSIES AND ITS RELATION TO TUMOR PROGRESSION It is still a question of outmost interest, if it is possible to define surface markers which define a certain stage of malignancy, as it can be found in experimental tumor systems (42). In human malignant melanoma several melanoma-associated antigens have been described; but a histological survey in situ on melanoma biopsies revealed that most of them reacted to a high percentage with nevi, primary and metastatic lesions of melanoma (for review see 9).
