A Guide to Cancer: Origins and Revelations unfolds the complex and fascinating topic of cancer in two ways: firstly, no specialist knowledge is assumed on the part of the reader, and secondly, despite the serious nature of the topics, the book aims to stimulate interest, provoke thought, and paradoxically entertain. It takes an array of complex topics and breaks them down in clear, concise terms, so that anyone with a basic knowledge of science can understand. The book is aimed at the general public as well as students of biological subjects, first and second year university students, and researchers in the nascent field of cancer genomics.

Pediatric Radiation Oncology

 Oncology, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Radiation Oncology
Mar 032018
 

This book presents the most up-to-date and innovative information on the targeting and treatment of a wide range of childhood cancers by means of radiation therapy. Written by global experts in pediatric radiation oncology, it documents in detail the treatment regimens appropriate to each disease, highlighting the recent advances that promise to improve rates of survival and cure.
The use of image-guided and intensity-modulated radiation therapy is clearly described, and careful attention is also devoted to the roles of proton therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic fractionated radiosurgery, and modulated arc radiotherapy. Separate chapters address localization and verification procedures and anesthesia; pediatric radiation oncology in the palliative care setting; and aspects that are especially relevant in low- and medium-income countries. Beyond clinical radiation oncology, relevant information is provided on radiation physics. The book concludes by examining future directions in the field.

Tumor Deposits: Mechanism, Morphology and Prognostic Implications

 Oncology  Comments Off on Tumor Deposits: Mechanism, Morphology and Prognostic Implications
Feb 272018
 

This book presents the morphology, possible mechanisms of formation, and clinical relevance of tumor deposits (TDs) in different organs and parts of the body. It also describes the diagnostic features that are currently available for TDs and discusses the prognostic impact of TDs. The poor prognostic and predictive values of TDs were found to be as strong as distant metastasis in different series.
TDs, best characterized by colorectal cancer, are irregular discrete tumor masses that are discontinuous from the leading edge of the tumor. However, even in colorectal cancers, the place of TDs in tumor staging (tumor, lymph node and distant metastasis categories) remains controversial. This book presents the possible mechanisms of TD formation, including neurotrophic and angiotrophic extravascular migratory metastasis, in comparison with the well-known mechanisms of metastasis. It also shows that TDs were identified in esophageal, gastric, salivary gland, head and neck, and breast carcinomas. The possible mechanisms leading to the frequent association of TDs and peritoneal carcinomatosis are discussed.
This is a valuable resource for pathologists, oncologists, and surgeons who are looking for detailed information on the latest scientific insights into the pathology and prognostic implications of TDs.

Nutritional Support of Cancer and Transplant Patients (Medical Intelligence Unit)

 Oncology  Comments Off on Nutritional Support of Cancer and Transplant Patients (Medical Intelligence Unit)
Feb 252018
 

Much has been learned, great developments have occurred, and so much has been written about cancer and transplantation in the last 2-3 decades. Yet, to the author’s knowledge, no monograph or book has addressed nutrition support of cancer and transplant patients together. Experts from the around the world have addressed the nutrition support in cancer and transplant patients in this unique monograph. The book is divided in two parts: Part I deals with nutrition support in cancer patients, including the specific role of nutrition on immunity, cancer cachexia, and the role of different substrates. Part II addresses nutrition in transplant patients. The first two chapters deal with the immunologic role of nutrition and cancer cachexia. Chapter 3 elegantly and extensively reviews the nutritional implications; its biochemistry and the role of one of the most studied amino acids in clinical practiceÑglutamine. This is followed by two chapters of nutrition support of patients with head and neck cancer and nutrition support of patients with gastrointestinal cancer. Chapters 6 and 7 review the role of total parenteral nutrition on perioperative nutritional support and cell cycle kinetics. While the plasma amino acids profile in cancer patients and the role of L-methionine is addressed in great details in Chapters 8 and 9, the role of ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate administration on surgical, trauma and cancer-bearing patients is reviewed on Chapter 10. Part Two of this book starts with the review of nutritional support in small bowel transplantation. This Section elegantly describes the process of recovery of small bowel from the ischemia and preservation, weaning from parenteral nutrition support and establishment of normal diets. In addition monitoring techniques and the nutritional complications of surgical intervention is described. Chapter 12 on liver failure and liver transplant patients addresses hepatic encephalopathy and the role of certain amino acids, nutrition assessment techniques and metabolic changes following liver transplantation. Furthermore, it offers some practical advice on how to establish nutrition support routes in these very ill patients. Nutrition support in renal transplantation, including metabolic abnormalities in renal failure, are described on Chapter 13. This monograph ends with a Chapter on total parenteral nutrition in bone marrow transplant patients.

This succinct yet comprehensive volume describes current and emerging concepts in molecular pathology of bladder cancer. Divided into two distinct sections, the first part focuses on the general principles of molecular findings in bladder cancer, while the second part focuses on the molecular changes associated with specific histologic subtypes. The volume also addresses such topics as molecular alterations in non-invasive and invasive disease, including bladder cancer variants as appropriate, emerging molecular classifiers of bladder cancer, and molecular associations to outcome and treatment. Written by experts in the field, Precision Molecular Pathology of Bladder Cancer is a valuable resource for those in the urologic community, including urologic pathologists, urologists, urologic oncologists and radiation oncologists, who treat and manage bladder cancer.

Breast Cancer: Medical Treatment, Side Effects, and Complementary Therapies

 Oncology  Comments Off on Breast Cancer: Medical Treatment, Side Effects, and Complementary Therapies
Feb 222018
 

Breast Cancer Treatment, Care, Side Effects, and Counseling is the product of a personal journey through breast cancer by one of the authors. While undergoing different modalities of treatment for breast cancer, she and her family felt a huge gap in the available information on cancer treatment and care. All the available information, even as basic as what is cancer, was very medical and scientific. For a person just diagnosed with cancer, medical language is very intimidating and frightening. Also, there was not a single source which provided all the information about cancer, its treatment modalities, and side effects. Our book is thus a compilation of all the information we collected over her one year treatment process. This book is the result of a combined effort of a breast cancer survivor, her spouse who is an academician, medical professionals, counselor, and a wellness expert so as to provide a comprehensive understanding of breast cancer. Medical specialists heal cancer in the body, but the treatment modalities of cancer impact the body, mind and emotions of the patient. Being prepared for the emotional and mental side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and the medications would empower breast cancer patients and their family with an awareness of the disease so as to cope with the treatment better. Knowing is half the battle won, and will remove the fear of the unknown.
