analyzes core constituents of apoptosis and causes for dysregulation of programmed cell death (PCD) in B-CLL
examines recent research on the role cytokines and regulatory molecules may play in cross-cell communication
profiles commonly used vectors for somatic gene therapy, as well as the latest advances in genetic engineering and vector design and production
utilizes up-to-the-minute techniques such as fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) to detect genetic abnormalities and aberrations
explores current measures of supportive care with splenectomy, cytokine proteins, and intravenous immunoglobulin applications
identifies how to manage infectious and psychiatric complications in patients with CLL
and much more!
Provides contemporary results on the efficacy of nucleoside analog combinations such as ara-C with fludarabine and cladribine and on the emerging nucleosides nelarabine and clofarabine!
