Written by a team of international experts, this book provides an authoritative overview and practical guide to the molecular biology and genetic basis of haematologic cancers including leukemia. Focusing on the importance of cytogenetics and related assays, both as diagnostic tools and as a basis for translational research, this is an invaluable guide for basic and clinical researchers with an interest in medical genetics and haemato-oncology. The Genetic Basis of Haematological Cancers reviews the etiology and significance of genetic and epigenetic defects that occur in malignancies of the haematopoietic system. Some of these chromosomal and molecular aberrations are well established and already embedded in clinical management, while many others have only recently come to light as a result of advances in genomic technology and functional investigation. The book includes seven chapters written by clinical and academic leaders in the field, organised according to haematological malignancy sub-type. Each chapter includes a background on disease pathology and the genetic abnormalities most commonly associated with the condition. Authors present in-depth discussions outlining the biological significance of these lesions in pathogenesis and progression, and their use in diagnosis and monitoring response to therapy. The current or potential role of specific abnormalities as novel therapeutic targets is also discussed. There is also a full colour section containing original FISH, microarrays and immunostaining images.

Наволочки с декоративным кантом особенно подойдут, если вы предпочитаете класть подушки поверх покрывала. Кайма шириной 5-10 см с трех или четырех сторон делает подушки визуально более объемными, смотрятся они очень аккуратно, даже парадно. Еще такие наволочки называют оксфордскими или наволочками «с ушками».Жаккард – это ткань с уникальным рисунком, который создают на специальном станке. Из-за сложного плетения эта ткань довольно жесткая, поэтому используют ее только для верхней стороны пододеяльника и наволочек. Хлопковый жаккард соединяет в себе все плюсы натуральной ткани и сложного плетения: хорошо впитывает влагу, «дышит», долговечен и прочнее любой ткани, кроме натурального шелка.Сатин средней плотности – золотая середина среди сатинового постельного белья. Он достаточно плотный, долго не изнашивается, но стоит дешевле сатина повышенной плотности. Комплект из сатина не блестит как шелк, но приятен на ощупь и довольно мягкий. Краска на этой ткани держится очень хорошо: новое белье не полиняет и со временем не станет выцветать.

Kui kaugele oleksid sina nõus minema, et kaitsta oma abielu? Pingelise tempoga psühholoogilise põnevusromaani peategelasteks on värskelt abiellunud Alice ja Jake. Alice oli kunagi laulja kuulsas rokkansamblis, ent nüüdseks on saanud temast edukas advokaat. Jake’il on osalus ühes hoogsalt arenevas psühholoogilise nõustamisega tegelevas firmas. Nende kooselu peidab endas lõputult võimalusi. Kui nad saavad ühelt Alice’i mainekalt kliendilt ahvatleva pulmakingi, otsustavad ka nemad liituda eksklusiivse ja salapärase grupiga, mida kutsutakse lihtsalt Paktiks. Pakti eesmärk näib olevat lihtne: hoida abielud õnneliku ja püsivatena. Ja enamik Pakti reeglitest on igati loogilised: vasta alati telefonile, kui su abikaasa helistab. Tehke teineteisele iga kuu läbimõeldud kingitusi. Planeerige kord kvartalis ühine reis… Ja siis veel see: ärge mainige Pakti kunagi ühelegi võõrale. Alguses on Alice ja Jake võlutud glamuursetest pidudest ja vastsest kogukonnatundest. Kuid siis rikub üks neist reegleid. Noored armunud saavad teada, et Pakti ridadesse kuulumine on liikmete jaoks samamoodi eluaegne nagu nende abielugi. Ja Pakt on valmis kõigeks, et see reegel saaks täidetud. Peagi tõotab Jake’i ja Alice’i unistuste abielu kujuneda kõige jubedamaks luupainajaks.
