blood test

  • a serologic analysis of a sample of blood
  • Blood Test is the second novel by Jonathan Kellerman, published in 1986. It is told from the first person point-of-view of Dr. Alex Delaware, a child psychologist who is Kellerman’s main character in the majority of his novels.
  • A blood test is a laboratory analysis performed on a blood sample that is usually extracted from a vein in the arm using a needle, or via fingerprick.
  • A scientific examination of a sample of blood, typically for the diagnosis of illness or for the detection and measurement of drugs or other substances


  • Epidermal growth factor receptor. The protein found on the surface of some cells and to which epidermal growth factor binds, causing the cells to divide.
  • Also known as HER-1, EGFR belongs to a family of receptors (HER-2, HER-3, HER-4 are other members of the family) and binds to the EGF, TGF-α, and other related proteins, leading to the generation of proliferative and survival signals within the cell.
  • A protein on the surface of some tumor cells, which may increase growth and spread of the cancer.

EGFR Signaling Networks in Cancer Therapy (Cancer Drug Discovery and Development)
The epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor and its downstream signal transduction networks have been implicated in the ontology and maintenance of tumor tissues, which has motivated the discovery and development of molecularly targeted anti-EGFR therapies. Edited by John Haley and William J. Gullick, EGFR Signaling Networks in Cancer Therapy, is separated into two sections. The first of which probes the molecular pathways and the intersection of signaling networks which are frequently deregulated in human cancers, with a view to describing EGF receptor in a tumor tissue specific context. Meanwhile, the second section illustrates the many ways in which EGF receptor contribute to abnormal survival and migration signaling in cancer cells and to epithelial to mesenchymal transition and metastasis. The book also describes the mitogenic, survival, adhesive and migratory pathways within a framework of interacting subsystems that contribute to the activity and physiological regulation of the receptor in normal and neoplastic tissues. Even though there is still much to learn, this volume explores this fascinating system with compelling information.
