Cancer and heart disease are the two most common causes of death in developed countries. Each disease considered separately should be thought of as a complex group of related diseases. Considering them in combination greatly heightens the complexity of what we speak of as cancer and heart disease. Great progress has been made in treatment, early diagnosis, and prevention of these diseases; yet both remain extraordinary concerns from both a public health perspective and with regard to the devastation and suffering that those afflicted with a dual diagnosis of cancer and cardiotoxicity must endure.
This second edition of Cancer and the Heart covers the complex interactions of multiple diseases in patients who have cancer and who either have or are expected to acquire significant heart disease. Information on the subject is often fragmented or not presented in a concise format; we believe that this updated revision will facilitate personalized clinical management and provide the basic background to support clinical decision-making.
Key Features:
Provides a synthesis of the most relevant information regarding the treatment and disease progression of patients with the dual diagnosis of cancer and heart disease.
A current and comprehensive reference for clinicians, investigators, and students
Include over 200 illustrations, many of which are in full color.
Detailed Table of Contents and Index highlight important concepts.

MicroRNA as Biomarkers in Cancer Diagnostics and Therapy

 Oncology  Comments Off on MicroRNA as Biomarkers in Cancer Diagnostics and Therapy
Jan 022022
 

This Special Issue celebrates the 25th anniversary of the discovery of the first microRNA. The size of the microRNome and complexity of animal body plans and organ systems suggests a role for microRNAs in cell fate determination and differentiation. More than 2000 sequences have been proposed to represent unique microRNA genes in humans, with an increasing number of mechanistic roles identified in developmental, physiological, and pathological processes. Thus, dysregulation of a few key microRNAs can have a profound global effect on the gene expression and molecular programs of a cell. This great potential for clinical intervention has captured the interest and imagination of researchers in many fields. However, very few fields have been as prolific as the field of cancer research. This Special Issue provides but a glimpse of the large body of literature of microRNA biology in cancer research, containing 4 original research studies and 4 review articles that focus on specific hematologic or solid tumors in disease. Collectively, these articles highlight state-of-the-art approaches and methodologies for microRNA detection in tissue, blood, and other body fluids in a range of biomarkers applications, from early cancer detection to prognosis and treatment response. The articles also address some of the challenges regarding clinical implementation.

Non-Laryngeal Cancer and Voice 1st Edition

 Oncology  Comments Off on Non-Laryngeal Cancer and Voice 1st Edition
Dec 312021
 

Dysphonia, or change in voice quality, can have a devastating effect on both the physical and emotional state of cancer patients. Meeting the vocal needs of cancer patients allows physicians to care for the entire patient and can have a dramatic impact on the overall quality of life of afflicted individuals. Non-Laryngeal Cancer and Voice explores the literature on voice problems in cancer patients, with a particular emphasis on how both the disease and treatment can affect the voice.

 

This text offers valuable information for a range of professionals involved in treating patients with non-laryngeal cancer, including laryngologists, speech-language pathologists, singing specialists, oncologists, and surgeons, as well as patients. By providing comprehensive information on disease- and treatment-induced dysphonia, the book can also act as a resource for voice professionals who develop common cancers and want to understand the potential voice consequences of the cancer and its treatment.

The initial three chapters of Non-Laryngeal Cancer and Voice provide basic information about the voice for non-laryngologists. Each of the remaining chapters focuses on a common type of cancer, such as lung cancer and breast cancer, and its unique effect on the voice.
