"...this book will expand the reader’s understanding of both immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostic and theranostic applications. In tandem, it also acts as an up-to-date bench-top reference tool. It is an easy-to-read, wellpresented text that I would recommend as a ‘must have’ for every pathology department."
