About this book


Molecular Pathology of Neoplastic Gastrointestinal Diseases  reviews the molecular aspects that characterize the spectrum of neoplastic conditions that affect the gastrointestinal tract, providing the reader with current up-to-date knowledge. For each disease entity chapters provide reviews on:

  • the molecular basis of the individual disease
  • molecular testing approaches currently available or in development for diagnosis or for gene target characterization for selective targeted therapies
  • recommended guidelines for clinical application of molecular tests are included whenever available
  • molecular testing for hereditary predisposition or disease risk
  • animal models and cell culture models of disease
