This book presents, in condensed form, the clinical results achieved by means of various locoregional tumor therapies employed for different indications. In so doing, it will allow the reader to rapidly retrieve the information on indications and effectiveness that is required for optimal integration of these highly effective therapies into modern, complex treatment strategies.
The renaissance in locoregional tumor therapies is an ongoing process. New chemotherapeutic schedules, especially for liver and lung tumors, have been developed during the past few years. Other targeted therapies, such as radioembolization, microwave ablation, and HIFU techniques, and new pharmaceuticals for intra-arterial therapy have been developed and implemented in clinical practice. Furthermore, the advantages of unlimited combination of starch microspheres with various antitumor agents, supported by effective ischemia, have been increasingly exploited. The second edition of this book reflects these advances and includes entirely new chapters on the role of intraperitoneal perfusion in treating peritoneal carcinomatosis and the use of limb perfusion. Locoregional Tumor Therapy will be invaluable for all practitioners who work with cancer patients.

Recent Trends in Cancer Biology: Spotlight on Signaling Cascades and microRNAs

 Oncology  Comments Off on Recent Trends in Cancer Biology: Spotlight on Signaling Cascades and microRNAs
Mar 112018
 

Cancer is a mulCancer is a multifaceted disease and overwhelmingly increasing experimental evidence has helped us to develop a deeper understanding of the role of signal transduction cascades in cancer development and progression. Tissue microarrays and next generation sequencing technologies have assisted us to gather missing pieces of jigsaw puzzle and we now know that deregulation of spatio-temporally controlled signaling cascades play fundamental role in metastasis and resistance against wide ranging therapeutics.
This book offers a balanced overview of the rapidly emerging cutting edge research in molecular oncology and good source of knowledge for established oncologists, basic and medical students and pharmaceutical industry associated R&D departments.tifaceted disease and overwhelmingly increasing experimental evidence has helped us to develop a deeper understanding of the role of signal transduction cascades in cancer development and progression.

Mechanical Ventilation in Critically Ill Cancer Patients: Rationale and Practical Approach

 Oncology  Comments Off on Mechanical Ventilation in Critically Ill Cancer Patients: Rationale and Practical Approach
Mar 102018
 

This book aims to equip the reader to make optimal decisions on the use of mechanical ventilatory support in critically ill cancer patients with acute respiratory failure (ARF) and to implement the different strategies effectively. Detailed information is provided on the rationale for invasive and non-invasive ventilation, the different modes of ventilation, indications and contraindications, prognostic factors, and outcomes.
The role of postoperative mechanical ventilation following various forms of surgery is extensively addressed, and key aspects of withdrawal from ventilatory support are discussed. Attention is also devoted to mechanical ventilation in the palliative care context. The concluding part of the book focuses on healthcare resource utilization and organizational support in cancer critical care. ARF is the most common reason for hospital and intensive care admission among oncological patients, and there is growing evidence that outcome following mechanical ventilation is improving. Readers will find this book to be an invaluable aid when selecting and executing a strategy for management of ARF in individual cancer patients.

Advances in Targeted Cancer Therapy

 Oncology  Comments Off on Advances in Targeted Cancer Therapy
Mar 052018
 

There have been tremendous advances in our understanding of molecular and tumor biology during the past few years. In the field of cancer therapeutics, it is expected that cytotoxic drug approaches will be gradually replaced with treatments based on biological targeted approaches. Hopefully these new targeted therapies will significantly increase efficacy and lack the devastating and troublesome side effects elicited by cytotoxic chemotherapy.
This volume is the first book to cover the general topic of targeted cancer therapy. It presents a range of targets such as tumor angiogenesis, cell cycle control and cell signalling, COX-2, apoptosis/cell survival, invasion and metastasis and approaches like kinase inhibitors, antisense, and antibody-based therapeutics. The emphasis is on preclinical development, including target validation, development of biomarkers, strategies for combination approaches, and development of resistance. The particular challenges involved in translating these data to clinical application are discussed.
This volume should be of broad general interest to researchers and clinicians involved in cancer therapy as well as other scientists interested in current strategies for cancer treatment.
