Cancer Crossings: A Brother, His Doctors, and the Quest for a Cure to Childhood Leukemia

 Oncology  Comments Off on Cancer Crossings: A Brother, His Doctors, and the Quest for a Cure to Childhood Leukemia
May 092018
 

When Eric Wendel was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 1966, the survival rate was 10 percent. Today, it is 90 percent. Even as politicians call for a “Cancer Moonshot,” this accomplishment remains a pinnacle in cancer research.

The author’s daughter, then a medical student at Georgetown Medical School, told her father about this amazing success story. Tim Wendel soon discovered that many of the doctors at the forefront of this effort cared for his brother at Roswell Park in Buffalo, New York. Wendel went in search of this extraordinary group, interviewing Lucius Sinks, James Holland, Donald Pinkel, and others in the field. If there were a Mount Rushmore for cancer research, they would be on it.

Despite being ostracized by their medical peers, these doctors developed modern-day chemotherapy practices and invented the blood centrifuge machine, helping thousands of children live longer lives. Part family memoir and part medical narrative, Cancer Crossings explores how the Wendel family found the courage to move ahead with their lives. They learned to sail on Lake Ontario, cruising across miles of open water together, even as the campaign against cancer changed their lives forever.

Cancer in Children and Young People: Acute Nursing Care

 Oncology  Comments Off on Cancer in Children and Young People: Acute Nursing Care
May 092018
 

Much has changed since the first book Paediatric Oncology: Acute Nursing Care (1999), therefore, this new edition encompasses these changes in relation to the practice itself and the evidence that underpins it.  Emphasis is placed on ensuring terminology is accurate, in keeping with the language of the current day.
The book is divided into six sections: Chemotherapy, Haematopoetic Stem Cell Transplantation, General Surgery, Radiotherapy, Late Effects of cancer therapies, and Palliative Care.  There is a brief commentary at the end of each section/chapter by a ‘novice’ author but experienced practitioner, highlighting to the reader what is already known and what the section/chapter adds to their current knowledge and practice.

Prostate Cancer: Basic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Approaches

 Oncology  Comments Off on Prostate Cancer: Basic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Approaches
May 052018
 

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in men and its progression is highly dependent on androgens and androgen receptors. However, even with treatment, eventually most prostate cancers progress. Studies of the mechanisms behind this progression leads to advances in treatments for androgen-related diseases. Our book discusses recent prostate cancer research, which includes the following topics: immunotherapy and chemotherapy; radiation, gene, hormonal, and androgen ablation therapies; basic mechanisms behind prostate cancer growth; how mechanisms can be used to treat prostate cancer; and research in newly developed mouse model systems.This book should be of interest as both a study guide and research reference to students, basic scientists, and clinicians.

Recombinant Antibodies for Cancer Therapy: Methods and Protocols

 Oncology  Comments Off on Recombinant Antibodies for Cancer Therapy: Methods and Protocols
May 022018
 

Many antibodies recently developed as therapeutic agents have been tailored by the powerful new recombinant antibody technology, and already their clinical data show highly encouraging results. In Recombinant Antibodies for Cancer Therapy: Methods and Protocols, Martin Welschof and Jürgen Krauss present a collection of carefully selected protocols for the design, construction, and characterization of those novel anticancer therapeutics.
Written by seasoned investigators who have successfully verified the particular method described, these readily reproducible methods include coverage of hybridoma-derived recombinant antibodies, recombinant antibody fragments from phagemid-displayed antibody repertoires, antibody fragments with additional properties, and large-scale production of recombinant antibodies for clinical applications. The main focus is on providing detailed protocols that describe these procedures step-by-step, accompanied by a troubleshooting guide discussing possible problems and offering many tips for their potential solutions. Concise review articles also survey the current status of recombinant antibodies in cancer therapy, as well as the generation of antibody molecules through antibody engineering.
Up-to-date and highly practical, Recombinant Antibodies for Cancer Therapy: Methods and Protocols surveys the current status of engineered antibodies and describes in rich detail many readily reproducible methods of generating the novel and promising antibody-based reagents of today’s cancer therapy.
