    Down Syndrome and Fragile X Syndrome are disorders of mental retardation that are characterized by cognitive impairments and changes to other physical characteristics. A goal in the study of these diseases has been to understand the mechanisms that underlie the cognitive impairments present in these two disorders of mental retardation. A great deal of effort has been made to study synaptic function and structure in these disorders of mental retardation in order to determine whether there are any alterations present. Alterations to synaptic structure and function present during these disorders may give insight to the neural basis of the cognitive impairments that are characteristic of this disorder of mental retardation. An area of the brain that may be affected by these disorders is the hippocampus. This area of the brain has been extensively studied for its role in memory and alterations to synaptic function and structure may underlie some of the memory deficits present in these disorders of mental retardation. Both Down Syndrome patients and Fragile X Syndrome patients have deficits in their performance on memory tests. Down Syndrome patients also have a reduction in the number of neurons present in the hippocampus (Carlesimo et al., 1997). Fragile X Syndrome patients had structural abnormalities in the hippocampus including an enlargement of ventricular spaces (Jakala et al., 1997). Synaptic function and structure in the hippocampus of mouse models of Down Syndrome and Fragile X Syndrome were studied in order to determine this region of the brain was affected. Electrophysiology recordings in area CA3 of the hippocampus of the Ts65Dn Down Syndrome mouse model indicated there were disruptions to synaptic connectivity, decreases in excitatory and inhibitory synaptic transmission, and also a reduction in intrinsic interneuron activity. Imaging studies of CA3 in the Ts65Dn mouse did not show alterations to the number of synapses or structure of synapses suggesting that the alterations found with electrophysiology recordings are the result of functional changes to synapses. Electrophysiology study of the hippocampus in mouse models of Fragile X Syndrome has shown that inhibitory function was generally intact but that excitatory axons from neurons that lacked the Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein (FMRP) were less competitive at forming synapses in a mosaic expression system of the Fmr1 gene the lack of which causes the disease. These studies indicate that alterations to synaptic structure and function are present in the hippocampus of these mouse models of mental retardation. The differences however, were not the same in Down Syndrome and Fragile X Syndrome mouse models. Nonetheless, it is possible that the changes to synaptic function found in both of these mouse models leads to altered network function in the hippocampus which may, in turn, be the underlying cause of the memory deficits present in these disorders of mental retardation. The data presented in these studies indicate that the study of these mouse models of mental retardation can give insight to alterations caused by these disorders of mental retardation which may also lead to the development of new treatments.

    Abnormal proteins are known to be associated with various pathologies. Most notably, these include amyloidoses, monoclonal protein deposits associated with plasma cell dyscrasia/multiple myeloma, cryoglobulins and various related organized and non-organized deposits. Amyloid and Related Disorders presents an overview of the most recent developments in this area including clinical presentation, etiology, pathogenesis, and differential diagnosis. The rationale for various therapies, including transplantation, is discussed and tissue diagnosis (its pitfalls and strategies for avoiding them) and laboratory support are included. The involvement of all major organ systems including renal/genitourinary, cardiac, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, peripheral nerve/central nervous system, soft tissue and bone marrow pathology is covered. This approach provides a unifying concept of these pathologic processes, which have systemic involvement, and which have, hitherto, not been universally appreciated. Awareness of these diseases among a wider audience of pathologists may increase the rate of their diagnosis as well as that of earlier diagnosis. This volume will be invaluable to specialized and general pathologists as well as cytopathologists; other medical professionals may also benefit from this concise update on the systemic amyloidoses.

    Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of the ovary with its unique clinical and biological features has attracted great attention, and calls for the publication of a specialized book on the subject. This is the first atlas that has narrowed its focus to CCC. Revealed here are the typical and variable histological features of CCC and related tumors. Hundreds of high-quality photographs help the reader to recognize the pathological features and clinical manifestations of CCC and to formulate diagnoses confidently and accurately. Data are based on the international central pathological review of the JGOG/GCIG3017 clinical trial in which experts around the world participated. Using a virtual slide system, interesting and significant features of CCC were discovered in the review of 652 cases. This book provides the newest information on the categorization and classification of CCC: growth patterns (papillary, tubocystic, solid, and adenofibromatous), cell types (classical hobnail and clear cell, eosinophilic, oxyphilic, and oncocytic), stromal changes (hyalinized, necrotic, hemorrhagic, lymphocytic infiltrative, luteinized, and psammomatous calcification), presence of endometriosis and atypical endometriosis, and borderline/atypical proliferative tumors. The Atlas of Clear Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary is an invaluable diagnostic resource for pathologists and gynecologic oncologists.

    This atlas is dedicated specifically to gynecologic frozen section diagnosis and addresses professional practice gaps such as high diagnostic error rate, slow turnaround time, and inefficient communication between surgeons and pathologists at the time of intraoperative frozen section consultation of gynecologic specimens. The format of the volume is a combination of concise text and high quality gross and frozen section microscopic images, meticulously selected from the superb collection of pathology specimens of gynecologic tumors provided at Yale-New Haven Hospital in the past decades. Frequent entities with diagnostic pitfalls are balanced with less common lesions. Strategies to recognize their diagnostic features are emphasized, in addition to the impact on optimal surgical treatment of patients with gynecologic cancer. The indications, limitations, morphologic diagnostic criteria and pitfalls of frozen section consultation in gynecologic pathology are thoroughly reviewed with an ultimate goal of avoiding patient mismanagement in real-time. High quality frozen section microscopic illustrations aid the recognition of morphologic patterns and serve as quick reference during intraoperative consultation. Written by experts in the field, Atlas of Intraoperative Frozen Section Diagnosis in Gynecologic Pathology is a valuable resource for pathologists at all career/expertise levels who are involved in intraoperative consultation in their daily clinical practice.

    Peripheral nerve analysis is a challenging task for pathologists, given the advent of new diagnoses and techniques of analysis and the impact of molecular genetics. This book presents a simple, logical method for constructing a differential diagnosis based on pathology and clinical presentation. It also provides advice on the selection of ancillary molecular, immunohistochemical and genetic techniques to establish a definitive diagnosis. Clear, authoritative guidance is offered on diagnosis of the full range of neuropathies with the aid of a wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs and electron micrographs. The pathologist will benefit greatly from the identification of a variety of artifacts and normal structures occasionally encountered in nerve biopsies that need to be distinguished from specific pathologic alterations. This user-friendly, practical text will be an invaluable aid in achieving the most specific diagnosis possible.

    Developed via a peer review process that included 25 experienced endocrinologists and utilizing the best current evidence, The Cleveland Clinic has created a practical set of protocols for over 25 commonly used dynamic endocrine tests. The cornerstone of clinical endocrinology, these evidence-based protocols play an important role in clinical decision-making and are important element of billing and compliance with high quality standards. Included here are various tests for pituitary and adrenal disorders, thyroid disorders, and glucose metabolism and pancreatic disorders, presented systematically with indications, preparation, materials needed, precautions, procedure, interpretation, and caveats. Filling the gap left by a lack of national guidelines, The Cleveland Clinic Manual of Dynamic Endocrine Testing is an up-to-date practical guide for endocrinologists, nurses, and their staff, inside or outside of the US, who need to perform and interpret dynamic endocrine testing in their everyday practice, as well as medical students, residents and fellows who have interest in endocrinology.

    The medical specialty of pathology is focused on the transformation of information extracted from patient tissue samples into biologically informative and clinically useful diagnoses to guide research and clinical care. Since the mid-19th century, the primary data type used by surgical pathologists has been microscopic images of hematoxylin and eosin stained tissue sections. Over the past several decades, molecular data have been increasingly incorporated into pathological diagnoses. There is now a need for the development of new computational methods to systematically model and integrate these complex data to support the development of data-driven diagnostics for pathology. The overall goal of this dissertation is to develop and apply methods in this new field of Computational Pathology, which is aimed at: 1) The extraction of comprehensive integrated sets of data characterizing disease from a patient's tissue sample; and 2) The application of machine learning-based methods to inform the interpretation of a patient's disease state. The dissertation is centered on three projects, aimed at the development and application of methods in Computational Pathology for the analysis of three primary data types used in cancer diagnostics: 1) morphology; 2) biomarker expression; and 3) genomic signatures. First, we developed the Computational Pathologist (C-Path) system for the quantitative analysis of cancer morphology from microscopic images. We used the system to build a microscopic image-based prognostic model in breast cancer. The C-Path prognostic model outperformed competing approaches and uncovered the prognostic significance of several novel characteristics of breast cancer morphology. Second, to systematically evaluate the biological informativeness and clinical utility of the two most commonly used protein biomarkers (estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR)) in breast cancer diagnostics, we performed an integrative analysis over publically available expression profiling data, clinical data, and immunohistochemistry data collected from over 4,000 breast cancer patients, extracted from 20 published studies. We validated our findings on an independent integrated breast cancer dataset from over 2,000 breast cancer patients in the Nurses' Health Study. Our analyses demonstrated that the ER-/PR+ disease subtype is rare and non-reproducible. Further, in our genomewide study we identified hundreds of biomarkers more informative than PR for the stratification of both ER+ and ER- disease. Third, we developed a new computational method, Significance Analysis of Prognostic Signatures (SAPS), for the identification of robust prognostic signatures from clinically annotated Omics data. We applied SAPS to publically available clinically annotated gene expression data obtained from over 3,800 breast cancer patients from 19 published studies and over 1,700 ovarian cancer patients from 11 published studies. Using these two large meta-datasets, we applied SAPS and performed the largest analysis of subtype-specific prognostic pathways ever performed in breast or ovarian cancer. Our analyses led to the identification of a core set of prognostic biological signatures in breast and ovarian cancer and their molecular subtypes. Further, the SAPS method should be generally useful for future studies aimed at the identification of biologically informative and clinically useful signatures from clinically annotated Omics data. Taken together, these studies provide new insights into the biological factors driving cancer progression, and our methods and models will support the continuing development of the field of Computational Pathology.

    Crib death or sudden infant death syndrome is surely among the worst emotional tragedies that any parent can experience. It is the most frequent death-causing syndrome during the first year of life, striking one infant in every 700-1,000. Crib death is a great enigma, and one of the main open issues in the social-medical and scientific setting of contemporary medicine. Despite a wide spectrum of theories and years of research, its etiology remains unclear. The scarcity of knowledge in the field of crib death and its pathology has led to continued and growing concern, prompting an expanding search for explanation that will permit either prediction or rapid diagnosis. This book describes systematic studies of the cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system carried out in a large number of infants, newborns, and fetuses who have died suddenly and unexpectedly, as well as in age-matched control cases. The cardiovascular and neuropathological findings are presented in detail, and the relationship between crib death and unexplained perinatal death is discussed. This monograph will aid pathologists, forensic pathologists, pediatricians, obstetricians, and neonatologists in recognizing all potential morphological substrata. It puts forward a well-researched standardized postmortem protocol to be applied in all cases of sudden unexpected infant and perinatal death.

    Meniscal degeneration often precedes cartilage degeneration, and effective detection and treatment can be critical in preventing osteoarthritis. The meniscus is a heterogeneous tissue, and obtaining information on the varying characteristics of meniscal regions is important in investigating such strategies. However, no current method exists that can detect such meniscal heterogeneity in the tissue matrix. In addition, the lack of quantitative information on meniscal heterogeneity hinders the development an effective, long-term solution that can treat degeneration in the meniscus. The purpose of this dissertation was thus 1) to find quantitative characteristics that defined meniscal heterogeneity and 2) to evaluate non-invasive diagnostic methods that could reflect the matrix tissue properties and detect meniscal heterogeneity. To accomplish the first goal, gene expression profiles of meniscal cells were statistically analyzed to identify quantitative markers that could distinguish between different regions of the meniscus, describing its heterogeneous properties. This information was then used to evaluate cell sources for meniscal tissue engineering, demonstrating the potential application of these quantitative markers in developing an effective treatment for meniscal degeneration. Secondly, in order to detect meniscal heterogeneity, which is reflected in the changing tissue properties within the tissue, magnetic resonance imaging was used. The potential of the imaging parameters T1[rho] and T2 relaxation times in detecting various meniscal tissue properties, including the matrix composition and mechanical properties, was examined. Ultimately, such information would be useful in identifying internal degenerative changes that take place in the matrix of the tissue prior to macroscopic injuries. In this study, both T1[rho] and T2 relaxation times showed variation with tissue properties but were highly correlated with one another, indicating that only one imaging parameter might be necessary as a diagnostic tool in a clinical setting. In addition, an exploratory aim visualized the internal secondary collagen network in the meniscus and examined its deformation in different mechanical loading positions. This work significantly adds to the understanding of the heterogeneous properties of the meniscus and the potential of magnetic resonance imaging parameters as detection markers. It contributes to the advancement of diagnosis and treatment strategies for meniscal degeneration, which has further implications for preventing osteoarthritis progression.
