Leukemia and Lymphoma: Detection of Minimal Residual Disease


Leukemia and Lymphoma: Detection of Minimal Residual Disease
Name Leukemia and Lymphoma: Detection of Minimal Residual Disease
Author Martin H. Schreiber
Description In Leukemia and Lymphoma: Detection of Minimal Residual Disease, hands-on experts describe and discuss the minimal residual disease (MRD) methods they have successfully pioneered for leukemias and lymphomas. They apply reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), and acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Other PCR methods are used for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and for the monitoring of follicular lymphoma. Additional chapters address the use of real-time quantitative PCR (RQ-PCR), the emergent method of choice, in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the evaluation of MRD techniques in clinical trials, and the application of flow cytometry techniques.
