Breast Cancer

 Oncology  Comments Off on Breast Cancer
Oct 222018
 

Worldwide, breast cancer is by far the most common cancer amongst women, with an incidence rate more than twice that of colorectal cancer and cervical cancer and about three times that of lung cancer. Whilst screening programmes have improved detection, this disease still places a very high burden on healthcare services worldwide.

Over the last two decades, improved public awareness, the implementation of population screening by mammography, and the development of new technology for diagnosis have transformed the care of patients with breast cancer.

n this volume, recognised experts discuss key current issues in the diagnosis and management of breast disease. The development and application of new diagnostic techniques is described as well as the use of sophisticated drugs for more effective treatment. Complex contentious topics including risk factors, borderline lesions, professional performance and quality assurance are thoroughly explored by an expert multidisciplinary team.

Dr. Patrick Walsh’s Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer, Revised and Updated Edition

 Oncology  Comments Off on Dr. Patrick Walsh’s Guide to Surviving Prostate Cancer, Revised and Updated Edition
Oct 212018
 

Now updated and revised, the definitive book on surviving prostate cancer from the world’s leading authority on the prostate.

Each year, more than 230,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 30-40% of patients who are diagnosed will eventually relapse. But the good news is that more men are being cured of this disease than ever before.

Now in a revised fourth edition, this lifesaving guide by Dr. Patrick Walsh and award-winning science writer Janet Farrar Worthington offers a message of hope to every man facing this illness. Prostate cancer is a different disease in every man–which means that the right treatment varies for each person. Public awareness for this disease has transformed treatment and opened up new avenues of research; rapid advances in knowledge are being translated in new recommendations for management.

In this book, Dr. Walsh will address questions such as: 
• What causes prostate cancer? Your risk factors, including heredity, diet, and environment.
• Can I prevent prostate cancer? How some simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can help prevent or delay the disease.
• Does prostate cancer need to be treated at all? This hot-button issue is vital for men to understand.
• How do I know if I have prostate cancer? An explanation of the recently refined and expanded recommendations.
• How can my prostate cancer be treated? The pros and cons of new technologies and new information on focal therapy.

Targeting Protein Kinases for Cancer Therapy

 Oncology  Comments Off on Targeting Protein Kinases for Cancer Therapy
Oct 202018
 

An expert guide to targeting protein kinases in cancer therapy
Research has shown that protein kinases can instigate the formation and spread of cancer when they transmit faulty signals inside cells.

Because of this fact, pharma-ceutical scientists have targeted kinases for intensive study, and have been working to develop medicinal roadblocks to sever their malignant means of communication.

Complete with full-color presentations, Targeting Protein Kinases for Cancer Therapydefines the structural features of protein kinases and examines their cellular func-tions. Combining kinase biology with chemistry and pharmacology applications, this book enlists emerging data to drive the discovery of new cancer-fighting drugs. Valuable information includes:
Comprehensive overviews of the major kinase families involved in oncology, integrating protein structure and function, and providing important tools to assist pharmaceutical researchers to understand and work in this dynamic area of cancer drug research
Focus on small molecule inhibitors as well as other therapeutic modalities
Discussion of kinase inhibitors that have entered clinical trials for the treatment of cancer, with an emphasis on molecules that have progressed to late stage clinical trials and, in a few cases, to market
Providing a platform for further study, this important work reviews both the successes and challenges of kinase inhibitor therapy, and provides insight into future directions in the war against cancer.

Nuclear Oncology

 Oncology  Comments Off on Nuclear Oncology
Oct 162018
 

Nuclear Oncology a contemporary narrative of the role of nuclear medicine in oncology with an emphasis on SPECT/CT and PET/CT with additional comments when appropriate on the potential application of PET/MR and to a lesser degree, targeted radionuclide therapy. This book focuses on the use of radionuclides in the diagnosis and treatment of malignant diseases. It describes relevant approved and investigational clinical applications, instrumentation & technology, chemistry and practical clinical issues in nuclear oncology. The basic science and current research topics of nuclear oncology are addressed in separate chapters. Nuclear medicine has become an essential component to all phases of the management of the patient with a malignant tumor and in some cases, even benign neoplasms. The standard of practice for many tumors requires PET/CT imaging at various stages of diagnosis and management. In addition to clinical applications, ongoing investigational efforts, which more and more involve multi-institutional protocols, are also presented. Features:;*;Focuses on the use of radionuclides in the diagnosis and treatment of malignant diseases;*;Emphasizes SPECT/CT and PET/CT with additional emphasis on the potential application of PET/MR;*;Describes relevant approved and investigational clinical applications, instrumentation & technology, chemistry and practical clinical issues in nuclear oncology;

Multiorgan Resections for Cancer: Advanced Surgical Techniques

 Oncology, Surgery  Comments Off on Multiorgan Resections for Cancer: Advanced Surgical Techniques
Oct 162018
 

Frequently abdominal tumors and other processes can affect and invade adjacent structures. These phenomena can happen anywhere in the abdominal cavity, from the diaphragm to the pelvis. In the case of advanced tumors, special surgical techniques must be used which may necessitate the excision of several abdominal organs. These procedures are sometimes associated with secondary transplant surgical procedures.

This is the first book to cover complex abdominal surgery in this manner, and is sure to be a great aid in helping the surgeon to find solutions to some of the most difficult problems in surgery.

Modern Thoracic Oncology (In 3 Volumes)

 Oncology  Comments Off on Modern Thoracic Oncology (In 3 Volumes)
Oct 092018
 

Over the past nearly two decades, thoracic oncology has evolved into a highly complex oncologic subspecialty. Elaborate multimodality treatment regimens utilizing chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and increasingly more complex biological agents, including targeted and immunologic therapies are now standard for a group of malignancies that themselves have become more complex due to increasingly detailed and discriminating staging and genetic evaluation standards. A rapidly advancing knowledgebase has led to dramatic improvements in individualized or “personalized” care; but the myriad of rapid changes also have created a challenge for oncologists to comprehend and incorporate into daily practice. This staggering rapidity of change highlights the need for a comprehensive thoracic oncology textbook designed to be frequently updated in order to keep clinicians, be they pulmonologists, pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, or gastroenterologists, up-to-date in the most current care. Modern Thoracic Oncology utilizes a strategy designed to overcome the traditionally slow production timeline of textbook publication to keep abreast of the pace of change. To overcome this hurdle, we have recruited world experts, who have agreed to author a very small and concise topic (rather than a whole book chapter) so that the information can be frequently updated, reviewed, and published rapidly — thereby keeping this book relevant and current. Whether one desires information regarding lung cancer screening, esophageal cancer staging, mutational analysis, targeted therapies, stereotactic ablative radiation with real-time imaging, minimally-invasive and robotic surgery, combination immunotherapy, microwave/cryoablation, or methods of early cancer detection, we have endeavored to encompass all of the latest information in the field of thoracic oncology. With frequent future updates, we hope that this ambitious reference textbook will become your sourcebook for thoracic oncology.
