Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Review: Study Guide for Oncology Boards and MOC Exams

 Oncology, Pharmacology  Comments Off on Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Review: Study Guide for Oncology Boards and MOC Exams
Jun 222018
 

Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Reviewis the first book devoted entirely to providing the “must-know” facts on each cancer agent, including their pharmacokinetics, FDA-approved indications,toxicity, interactions, and other important information that is commonly found on board examinations and essential for any clinician or practitioner to review. The authors, an oncologist and two pharmacists, have developed a handy question-and-answer format to present the material in digestible bursts.

As the pharmacology section continues to represent a major portion of the medical oncology exam and a key component on oncology MOC exams, this portable study guide will help prepare anyone looking to fine-tune their knowledge on cancer drugs before the test. Not to mention, with recent advancements in the field of cancer treatment, it has become more cumbersome to recall and maintain essential knowledge of every cancer therapeutic, making this book not only an exam resource but also a handy quick reference for oncologists and pharmacists alike.

KEY FEATURES

Conveniently organized and arranged by drug class and subtypes for easier recall and classification
Includes proper dosage adjustments to account for liver and kidney dysfunction
Features tables throughout that provide quick reference regarding FDA-approved medications
Simplified diagrams and illustrations facilitate the pharmacokinetic processes

Gastrointestinal Cancers : Prevention, Detection and Treatment, Volume 2

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Oncology  Comments Off on Gastrointestinal Cancers : Prevention, Detection and Treatment, Volume 2
Jun 142018
 

Gastrointestinal (GI) cancer is well known cancer of digestive system that includes cancer of esophagus, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus. The incidence of GI cancer is higher in developed countries than developing counties. In developed countries such as United States, GI cancer accounts to 20 percent of all newly diagnosed cancer cases. In the developing countries inside Asia the burden of GI cancer is increasing because of aging, growth of the population and the risk factors including smoking, obesity, changing lifestyle and high prevalence of H pylori, HBV and HCV. In most developing countries, cancer control programs or early detection and treatment services are limited despite this increase.

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth commonest cause of cancer-related mortality across the world. This cancer is the fifth-most-common cause of cancer deaths in the United States and the seventh most common cancer in Europe. The majority of cases are diagnosed in the advanced stages, making curative therapy impossible and leading to poor prognosis and incidence equaling mortality. It has been estimated that rates of pancreatic cancer have been increasing slightly over the past decade. Pancreatic cancer is a very lethal and aggressive cancer and diagnosis is delayed, as the symptoms appear when the cancer is in advanced stage.

Liver cancer (also called hepatic cancer) is a cancer that originates in the hepatic cells, also known as primary liver cancer. Some cancers arise in other part of body and metastasize in the liver called secondary or metastatic liver cancer. The most common form of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma, which begins in the liver cell (hepatocyte). Primary liver cancer accounts for about 2% of cancers in the USA, but up to half of all cancers in some developing countries due to the prevalence of infections specifically by hepatitis virus.

On the basis of various incidences of different gastrointestinal cancer motivates us to compile a book related to gastrointestinal cancers and focus on the almost all type of prevention, detection and treatment methods from the world experts. This book is the culmination of the efforts of several researchers, junior and senior clinicians as well scientists as per their field of expertise across the world. In this book authors focused on different gastrointestinal cancers and describe the various methods for prevention, detection and treatment. The book has enormous scope and will benefit multiple audience including researchers, clinicians, patients, academicians, industrialists, and students.

Fast Facts: Prostate Cancer, 9th edition

 Oncology  Comments Off on Fast Facts: Prostate Cancer, 9th edition
Jun 132018
 

Prostate cancer is unusual among solid tumors in that the majority of affected men die with, rather than of, the disease. This presents many challenges to healthcare professionals and patients in terms of deciding if, when and how to intervene in order to control tumor growth and spread, thereby extending survival but without compromising quality of life.
This is the ninth edition of Fast Facts: Prostate Cancer since 1996, testament to the rapid changes in the field and the steadily improving outlook for patients.

This new edition provides many key updates:

– the Gleason grade grouping, which has valuable prognostic value

– nomograms to evaluate risk

– our rapidly expanding understanding of the genetics and underlying pathogenesis of prostate cancer and the development of genomic tests to help identify those at greatest risk of developing clinically significant disease

– the continuing debate about the role of PSA in the screening, detection and monitoring of prostate cancer

– advances in imaging techniques, particularly multiparametric MRI, which is improving the accuracy of biopsy and reducing the numbers of negative biopsies

– the roles of drugs, surgery and radiotherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer at different stages, and our ever-improving understanding of when and how best to intervene, aided by improving understanding of the risk factors for disease progression.

Primarily intended for primary care providers, specialist nurses, junior doctors and allied healthcare professionals, this highly readable resource provides a comprehensive overview of prostate cancer, enabling fully informed discussions with patients about this complex disease

Review
If you are a clinician and you’re going to read only one easy-to-read book about prostate cancer, make it this one. Then lend it to those patients who wish to know more. –Inderbir S. Gill, Keck School of Medicine
