This ebook is a accomplished compilation of the recent wisdom in peritoneal floor oncology within the sunrise of the twenty-first century. It covers the entire spectrum of the most recent study performed in peritoneal malignant dissemination, from its pathogenesis and molecular mechanisms to the most recent scientific trials. also, the necessities of perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy and the fashionable histopathological evaluation of peritoneal floor malignancy are reviewed. a special old viewpoint on how this new wisdom has spread out through the years is helping indicate the long run examine instructions to be pursued. top specialists during this box from around the globe, together with the pioneers who gave start to this new period in oncology, shape an unbeatable and notable panel of authors.

18 In the adhesion molecules, integrins are reported as the markers for peritoneal dissemination [11, 13]. Kawamura et al. reported that a highly metastatic cell line on the peritoneum overexpresses integrin α1, α2, and β1 [11]. Furthermore, neutralizing antibody for integrin α1, α2, and β1 subunits can inhibit the adhesion of cancer cells to the peritoneum. These results suggest integrins as target molecules to consider in research for the prevention of peritoneal dissemination. Furthermore, complementary DNA microarray and histochemical analyses revealed differences in the concerted expressions of several genes coding for matrix proteinases, cell adhesion, motility, angiogenesis, and proliferation between the highly metastatic and parental cell lines [27].

Even in the TNM system, only more recently has serosal involvement been separated from involvement of adjacent local organs (now classified as pT4b) and therefore studies using this classification have the potential to obscure the significance of serosal involvement in the presence of involvement of adjacent organs [50]. In a study of nearly 700 patients with colonic cancer, one-third of all patients who died as a result of carcinomatosis first presented with histologically or cytologically confirmed intraperitoneal disease [6].

The pathologist is therefore faced with some conflicting evidence when it comes to defin- Fig. 1 The histological classifi fication of serosal involvement according to the Gloucester, UK, series.
