An immunoassay is a biochemical test that measures the presence or concentration of a macromolecule or a small molecule in a solution through the use of an antibody (usually) or an antigen (sometimes).

The molecule detected by the immunoassay is often referred to as an "analyte" and is in many cases a protein, although it may be other kinds of molecules, of MeSH: D   Most of the chapters are concerned with specific-site or specific tumor markers and with nonspecific markers such as acute-phase reactant proteins, fibronectin, and mucin glycoproteins.

IDEAL TUMOR MARKER. Only a few tumor markers have stood the test of time and entered in the diagnostic or management algorithms for clinicians.[1,2,5]The three most important characteristics of an ideal tumor marker are (a) it should be highly specific to a given tumor type, (b) it should provide a lead-time over clinical diagnosis and (c) it should be highly sensitive to.

The book presents contemporary investigations on blast injury and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, making this state-of-the-art volume a must have for clinicians and researchers concerned with the clinical management, or investigation, of TBI.

Muchof the rest of the book is concerned with methods of diagnosis and laboratory investigations, including biopsy techniques and immunodiagnosis, chemotherapy, the mode of action of the drugs used, and as-sessment of their activity.

The book ends with an account of the epidemiology of the disease, including methods of snail sampling,Author: D. Morrison.

Recently, a multi-part series in the New York Times focused on novel uses of immunotherapy to fight cancer. In support of NIH scientists and clinicians engaged in this research, the NIH Library provides access to online books and journals on immunotherapy and related topics.The title sets the tone for the book as a whole, which does not provide a clear distinction between sequelae and long-term consequences.
