Sickle Cell Disease and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation


This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for sickle cell disease (SCD).  The book reviews new data about risk prediction for severe SCD, outlines the unique challenges of  HSCT for patients with SCD, profiles the supportive care guidelines for patients who are undergoing HSCT, highlights our current understanding of the best transfusion support for SCD patients prior to, during and after HSCT, and provides new perspectives about the ethics of HSCT for pediatric patients with SCD. Published in the last few years, several landmark phase III trials that utilize matched unrelated and haploidentical donors for HSCT in SCD patients are also placed in context with respect to current management. 
Written by experts in the field, Sickle Cell Disease and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation is a valuable resource for physicians and researchers dealing with and interested in this challenging, yet exciting, curative therapy for sickle cell disease, that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts.

Hematologic Malignancies: Acute Leukemias


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Better therapy of acute leukemias depends ultimately on better understanding of the distinction between leukemic and normal progenitor cells. This hugely important new book describes the current knowledge of acute leukemia biology and discusses new classification systems that have arisen as a result of emerging insights into pathogenesis. Estey, Faderl and Kantarjian, who all work at the respected Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, USA, examine in detail advances in the treatment of particular types of acute leukemia. Their book also covers the management of acute leukemia in general as well as the development of new therapies. This book will be extremely useful to clinicians.

Flow Cytometry in Neoplastic Hematology: Morphologic-Immunophenotypic Correlation, Third Edition


By (author): Wojciech Gorczyca

This third edition is the product of the author’s 25 years of experience with flow cytometry; although it covers the wide spectrum of hematopoietic tumors, the focus remains on most important clinical diagnoses, such as acute promyelocytic leukemia, identification of blasts, identification of clonal B-cell population, differentiating mature versus immature T-cell proliferations, deferential diagnosis between hematogones and B-ALL or distinction between chronic and acute monocytic proliferations. All hematopathologists and neoplastic hematologists will find this an important resource for keeping up to date with developments in clinical practice.

Radiation Therapy for Extranodal Lymphomas


This book is devoted to sharing the knowledge and experience of expert radiation therapy (RT) for extranodal lymphomas. For that purpose, the authors provide clinical-pathological information, precise RT techniques, and treatment results, i.e., disease control and survival, of all extranodal lymphomas.

Over the past 10 years, specific techniques have been updated, from 3-dimensional conformal RT to intensity modulated RT / volumetric-modulated arc therapy. Precise targeting such as image-guided RT and active breathing control are now capable of treating lymphoma lesions that shift with respiration or peristalsis.

This book, serving as a guide, provides the necessary knowledge for radiation oncology, practice, and planning involving the RT techniques of treating extranodal lymphomas. In addition, it equips oncologists, hematologists, and medical oncologists to refer patients with extranodal lymphomas to radiation oncologists for appropriate treatment in a timely manner. Therefore this volume will greatly benefit all oncologists, including radiation and medical oncologists, as well as hematologists.

From Herodotus to HIV: A history of haematology (Oxford Medical Histories)


By (author): Shaun R. McCann

Blood has long been an object of intrigue for many of the world’s philosophers and physicians, and references to it have existed since the earliest studies of human anatomy. Herodotus of Halicarnassus, whose writings 500 years before the birth of Christ drew on stories collected during his widespread travels, was amongst the first to identify the ritualistic and medical significance of blood. However, despite this long established history, haematology as a medical specialty is relatively new.

A History of Haematology: From Herodotus to HIV traces the history of haematology from biblical times to the present, discussing the major defining discoveries in the specialty, ranging from war as a catalyst for the development of new techniques in blood transfusion, to the medical response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

In this beautifully illustrated and passionately rendered history of the field of haematology, Professor Shaun McCann traces the remarkable developments within haematology and the work of the scientists and pioneers central to these advances. This engaging and authoritative history will appeal to a wide audience including haematologists, nurses and other health care workers in haematology, as well as medical students, and general physicians with an interest in haematology.

Pediatric Hematology and Oncology: Scientific Principles and Clinical Practice


This new textbook has an international authorship and is a practical, up-to-date resource for clinicians responsible for the care of children with oncologic and malignant hematologic disease. It is specifically designed for practicing oncologists and hematologists, pediatricians with an interest in childhood cancer and trainees seeking a systematic approach to these disorders.   This new textbook has an emphasis on the visual presentation and ease of reading of contemporary and comprehensive information for children’s cancers and contains detailed tables, fact boxes and illustrations.

The textbook begins with an introduction to the general principles of the scientific foundation and treatment of childhood cancers and hematological malignancies. Separate sections are then devoted to descriptions of central nervous system tumors, hematological malignancies and solid tumors of childhood which encompass epidemiology, cellular and molecular biology, cancer genetics, immunology, pharmacology and the findings of clinical trials. For each area of science covered, key original references and reviews are highlighted to direct further reading.

Diagnostic, biological, and therapeutic issues are integrated into each tumor-specific chapter, with evidence supporting the current rationales for risk stratification and the development of novel therapies. A final section then explores supportive care, palliative care, late effects considerations and psychosocial issues as relate to children’s cancer.
