Cancer Consult: Expertise for Clinical Practice

 Oncology  Comments Off on Cancer Consult: Expertise for Clinical Practice
Jun 242019
 

The field of oncology benefits from several large-scale reference books and a host of monographs dedicated to specific cancers. However, truly excellent practice and review books are, surprisingly, quite scarce. Outside of a scant handful of books and online reference tools that offer clinical response practice and board review in a basic question and answer format, there are no resources that offer a robust, engaging, fully referenced tool for these vital activities in every oncologist’s and oncology trainee’s work. This print and electronic book seeks to fill that void, offering comprehensive question-and-answer style content that covers the entire specialty of oncology and provides practicing oncologists with a fascinating and immediately applicable compendium of vital information dealing with a well-balanced selection of common and uncommon cancers. At the heart of this book is the editor’s and authors’ desire to overcome the controversies and barriers to practice that usually emerge following the appearance of new data. In every section, the user is guided toward collaboration in ongoing clinical research – for example, via discussions of well-designed ongoing clinical trials in each specific area. Developed with both the teacher and learner in mind, this book also offers trainees and fellows an excellent opportunity to enhance their preparation for the ABIM oncology fellowship exam as well as for the oncology boards. It will also be an extremely useful tool for oncologists working toward the recertification exam. This comprehensive, beefy book includes hundreds of painstakingly developed multiple-choice and mini-case-based questions covering the principles of medical oncology, malignant hematology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology. It also contains mini-cases and questions dealing with the biology, diagnosis, classification, staging, and multidisciplinary treatment of cancers at every anatomic site. The very latest topics are included, such as molecular techniques, targeted therapies, and translational cancer research. Concise but detailed answers are referenced to key journals and books, and evidence-based wherever possible. NCCN guidelines are also referenced as appropriate. With its powerful focus on take-home messages from and for actual clinical work, this book will help keep oncologists up to date, bridging the gaps between journal and reference literature, conferences, and their existing knowledge base.

Jun 212019
 

Radiation Oncology provides residents, fellows, and clinicians with a practical, evidence-based guide to the current management of difficult cases in radiation oncology. Emphasis is on the management of those clinical challenges commonly seen in practice that the community practitioner would normally handle without outside referral. The book offers comparisons of treatment approaches to difficult situations, allowing the reader to compare their current treatment approach to that of experts and others in the community.

Radiation Oncology is organized in seven sections corresponding to the major treatment areas of radiation oncology. Each section includes three cases to illustrate specific clinical challenges for which there is no clear treatment protocol. The case discussion includes an expert opinion on optimal management along with alternatives from a second academic expert’s perspective and from a community practitioner’s perspective.

Radiation Oncology features:

Evidence-based approach to difficult management challenges in radiation oncology
Expert authors provide evidence assessment and management summaries through presentation of relevant cases
Community practitioner reviewers ensure real-world relevance of each discussion
Reviews the most relevant literature pertaining to the challenging scenarios clinicians encounter every day

Oncolytic Viruses (Methods in Molecular Biology, v797)

 Oncology  Comments Off on Oncolytic Viruses (Methods in Molecular Biology, v797)
Jun 172019
 

Since the first report of an engineered oncolytic virus, there has been a continuing and steady increase of interest in the field, and while bench research remains vital for the translation of research in this field, its success depends on breakthroughs in clinical studies. Oncolytic Viruses: Methods and Protocols describes the construction and purification of capsid-modified adenoviruses as well as oncolytic adenoviruses, presents protocols for many individual virus species including engineering and preparation of oncolytic HSV, propagation, purification, and in vivo testing of oncolytic VSV, details properties of oncolytic reovirus and NDV, and describes the generation and testing of next generation of oncolytic vaccinia virus. As the host immune system plays a critical role in determining efficacy of oncolytic viruses, two chapters are devoted to the study of immune response. Recent advances in stem cell research have led the field in two distinct directions: the use of stem cells as carrier vehicles for oncolytic viruses and the targeting of cancer stem cells. As such, the volume describes the use of explant tissue samples from patients to potentially provide useful information predicting responses prior to clinical translation. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.   Authoritative and easily accessible, Oncolytic Viruses: Methods and Protocols seeks to serve both professionals and novices with its well-honed methodologies in an effort to further our knowledge of this essential and vital field.

Gastric Cancer

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Oncology, Radiology  Comments Off on Gastric Cancer
Jun 092019
 

Gastric adenocarcinoma is the second most common cancer worldwide. It is usually diagnosed at a late stage and prognosis is poor; even with modern diagnostic and treatment methods the 5-year survival is only 10%. Improvements in overall patient survival can only be achieved by earlier diagnosis and by tailored therapeutic strategies based on tumor type, location and stage at presentation.

This volume provides a state-of-the-art, integrated diagnostic and therapeutic approach to patient management. The role of the upper GI series, endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, MDCT, MRI, and PET/CT in the diagnosis, staging and follow-up of patients with gastric cancer is emphasized. The relative strengths and limitations of these diagnostic examinations will be presented in context with the most recent epidemiologic, pathologic, and therapeutic concepts regarding this tumor. With expert contributions from members of an international multidisciplinary team, this is an invaluable guide to the diagnosis and management of gastric malignancies.
