Molecular recognition undoubtedly governs any aspect of cellular interaction. To understand tumor cell growth regulation and spread, analysisof protein carbohydrate interactions can contribute to lead to the establishment of rational methods for diagnosis and therapy. Chemically and biochemically optimized preparation of adequate tools, their application for localization of receptor (tissue lectin) and ligand (cellular glycoconjugate) pairs in tumor cells and tumor sections and the usefulness of a lectin from a plant extract as potent immunomodulator indicate the prospect for a place of such techniques in pathology and oncology.

Lectins form a ubiquitous and important class of natural carbohydrate- binding information proteins. Although the main scientific interest was originally focussed on toxic lectins such as ricin, recent emphasis has shifted to exploring their involvement in cell-to-cell communication and recognition in microorganisms, plants and animals.; As knowledge of the basic properties and biological activities of lectins has increased, exciting opportunities have arisen for the exploitation of some of the advantageous aspects of fundamental lectinology.; "Lectins: Biomedical Perspectives" records the major achievements of an initiative, funded by the European Community, to coordinate lectin research throughout Europe.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING DIET PHENOMENON If you’ve ever suspected that not everyone should eat the same thing or do the same exercise, you’re right. In fact, what foods we absorb well and how our bodies handle stress differ with each blood type. Your blood type reflects your internal chemistry. It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of disease, longevity, fitness, and emotional strength. It determines your susceptibility to illness, the foods you should eat, and ways to avoid the most troubling health problems. Based on decades of research and practical application, Eat Right 4 Your Type offers an individualized diet-and-health plan that is right for you. In this revised and updated edition of Eat Right 4 Your Type, you will learn: • Which foods, spices, teas, and condiments will help maintain your optimal health and ideal weight • Which vitamins and supplements to emphasize or avoid • Which medications function best in your system • Whether your stress goes to your muscles or to your nervous system • Whether your stress is relieved better through aerobics or meditation • Whether you should walk, swim, or play tennis or golf as your mode of exercise • How knowing your blood type can help you avoid many common viruses and infections • How knowing your blood type can help you fight back against life-threatening diseases • How to slow down the aging process by avoiding factors that cause rapid cell deterioration INCLUDES A 10-DAY JUMP-START PLAN

Cellular glycoconjugates and their specific receptors, e.g. lectins, form a recognitive and informative transfer system that justifies special scientific and clinical attention. In various contributions reviewing the initiation and recent progress in this rapidly developing field advances in clinical oncology are discussed with regard to basic sciences as well as their application in clinical sciences. The approaches comprise reports from diverse fields such as biochemistry, cell biology, pathology and clinical oncology, addressing questions of how tumors grow and spread, and leading to the improvement of clinical management and tumor diagnosis.

In recent years the pace of research in prostate cancer has increased dramatically. Creative ideas in combination with new and emerging technologies have led to an explosion of discovery. These types of advances in prostate cancer research presage an era of new treatment strategies based on an understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease. In creating this book, we aimed to cover a broad "bench to bedside" research spectrum ranging from: genetic, molecular and cellular analyses to epidemiological studies, refinements in local treatment strategies and new biologically based non-hormonal treatments for systemic disease. Researchers and clinicians will find in this book a group of timely and clinically relevant chapters on prostate cancer research and treatment.
