The MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology, Second Edition 2nd Edition

510vicnbcjl-_sx374_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0071701060]

The MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology details the personalized multidisciplinary approach to cancer management pioneered by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. It is intended to bring a pragmatic approach to cancer management that can serve as a guide for oncologists around the world.

This completely updated second edition emphasizes and discusses recent developments in diagnostic procedures, which include the incorporation of new molecular markers and revised staging systems. It also reinforces how imaging and molecular profiling can prevent administration of overly aggressive, toxic treatment regimens, or invasive surgery to treat superficial or indolent tumors. Also new to the second edition are special commentaries provided by subspecialists in pulmonary medicine, radiation oncology, and surgery which discuss other perspectives on management.

To help you quickly assess cancer management options, every chapter includes numerous tables, diagrams, and imaging photographs. These include evidence-based treatment algorithms in the form of flowcharts and diagrams shaped by the clinical experience of MD Anderson’s world-class faculty. Everything is designed to provide you with a practical guide to diagnostic and therapeutic strategies used at MD Anderson.

The second edition also features important new chapters on key topics such as:

  • Myelodysplastic syndrome
  • Myeloproliferative neoplasms
  • T-cell lymphomas
  • Small bowel and appendiceal cancers
  • Inflammatory breast cancer

Offering the perfect balance of narrative text, summary tables, and clinical photographs (many in full color), there is truly not a more accessible, up-to-date, or authoritative clinician’s guide to the medical management of patients with cancer and its complications than The MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology.

Tumor Ablation: Principles and Practice 2005th Edition

41vnyvzrzbl-_sx348_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0387955399]

There is an enormous sense of excitement in the communities of cancer research and cancer care as we move into the middle third of the ?rst decade of the 21st century. For the ?rst time,there is a true sense of c- ?dence that the tools provided by the human genome project will enable cancer researchers to crack the code of genomic abnormalities that allow tumor cells to live within the body and provide highly speci?c, virtually non-toxic therapies for the eradication,or at least ?rm control of human cancers. There is also good reason to hope that these same lines of inquiry will yield better tests for screening, early detection, and prev- tion of progression beyond curability. While these developments provide a legitimate basis for much op- mism, many patients will continue to develop cancers and suffer from their debilitating effects, even as research moves ahead. For these in- viduals, it is imperative that the cancer ?eld make the best possible use of the tools available to provide present day cancer patients with the best chances for cure, effective palliation, or, at the very least, relief from symptoms caused by acute intercurrent complications of cancer. A modality that has emerged as a very useful approach to at least some of these goals is tumor ablation by the use of physical or physiochemical approaches.

Neuro-oncology 1st Edition

41ltypcnczl-_sx350_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0470655755]

The aim of the Neurology in Practice series is to provide a clinical ‘in the office’ or ‘at the bedside’ guide to effective patient care for neurologists in practice and in training. The tone will be practical, not academic. The working assumption is that readers want to know what (and what not) might or should be done, without over emphasis on the why. That said, it is important to review the crucial basic science necessary for effective diagnosis and management, and to provide reminders in the context of the practical chapters.

The books will not be heavily referenced, in line with a more practical approach. This allows for smoother reading (and also relieves the burden of comprehensive citing from authors). Key evidence (clinical trials, Cochrane or other meta analyses) should be summarized in ‘Evidence at a Glance’ boxes and key references such as reviews, major papers can be provided in the ‘selected bibliography’ at the end of each chapter.

Practical guidance will be provided through:

  • the use of algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate
  • ‘Tips and Tricks’ boxes – hints on improving outcomes perhaps via practical technique, patient questioning etc
  • ‘Caution’ warning boxes – hints on avoiding problems, perhaps via contraindications
  • ‘Science Revisited’ – quick reminder of the basic science principles necessary for understanding

Cancer Symptom Science: Measurement, Mechanisms, and Management (Cambridge Medicine (Hardcover)) 1st Edition

31gtayq0ril-_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0521869013]

Cancer Symptom Science is the first interdisciplinary compilation of research on the mechanisms underlying the expression of cancer-related symptoms. It presents innovations in clinical, animal and in vitro research, research methods in brain imaging, and statistical-descriptive approaches to understanding the mechanistic basis of symptom expression. This volume also provides perspectives from patients, government and industry. By collecting and synthesizing the developing threads of new approaches to understanding cancer-related symptoms, the book promotes a pioneering framework for merging behavioral and biological disciplines to clarify mechanisms of symptom evolution, incorporating new technologies, testing novel agents for symptom control, and improving patient functioning and quality of life both during and after cancer treatment. With an expert editorial team led by Charles S. Cleeland, an internationally-recognized leader in cancer pain assessment and treatment, this is essential reading for surgical, clinical and medical oncologists, academic researchers, and pharmaceutical companies developing new agents to control symptom expression.

Cancer Metastasis: Biologic Basis and Therapeutics 1st Edition

51zanmhi0ml-_sx384_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0521887216]

Metastasis is responsible for a large burden of morbidity and mortality among cancer patients, and currently few therapies specifically target metastatic disease. Further scientific dissection of the underlying pathways is required to pave the way for new therapeutic targets. This groundbreaking new text comprehensively covers the processes underlying cancer metastasis and the clinical treatment of metastatic disease. Whereas previous volumes have been compendia of laboratory research articles, the internationally renowned authors of this volume have summarized the state-of-the-art research in the metastasis field. A major section covers the cellular and molecular pathways of metastasis and experimental techniques and the systems and models applied in this field. Subsequently, the clinical aspects of the major cancer types are considered, focusing on disease-specific research and therapeutic approaches to metastatic disease. The focus is on novel pathophysiological insights and emerging therapies; future directions for research and unmet clinical needs are also discussed.
