Oncological Emergencies

Oncological emergencies can relate either to the cancer itself or is treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment are necessary to prevent major morbidity or mortality. Optimal outcomes in these patients rely on recognition of early symptoms and signs and use of the appropriate therapy. This book covers cancer-related and treatment-related oncological emergencies and their management in a clear, accessible style through the use of bullet lists, algorithms and key points to ensure effective and immediate treatment and management. As the number of cancer patients receiving treatment is increasing, so the number of clinicians encountering emergencies is rising so clear guidelines dealing with possible complications should prove invaluable. The book is aimed primarily at trainees in oncology and oncologists and will also be useful to primary care doctors and nurses and those working in emergency medicine.

Infectious Causes of Cancer: Targets for Intervention (Infectious Disease)

James J. Goedert and a team of leading experimental and clinical researchers provide critical, integrating surveys of those viruses, bacteria, and parasites that are now known to play a major role in cancer-work that opens the way toward novel therapeutic targets. The contributors focus on five types of human carcinogenic infection-herpesviruses, retroviruses, papillomaviruses, hepatitis viruses, and H. pylori-and review in depth the associated malignancies, as well as how these new diagnostic and therapeutic technologies may be implemented. Cutting-edge and cross-disciplinary, Infectious Causes of Cancer: Targets for Intervention provides clinical oncologists and infectious disease specialists, as well as clinical researchers, with insightful reviews of cancer induction by infectious diseases and the high promise of closely targeted new therapeutics and vaccines.

Telomeres and Telomerase in Cancer

Telomeres and telomerase are the pivotal players that destine cellular senescence and immortalization. Telomere shortening due to “End-replication problem” in each cell cycle is a universal phenomenon for all eukaryotic cells with linear chromosomes. Its compensation by telomerase is also common from yeast to human. However, the length of telomeres, distribution of telomerase positive cells, and consequence of telomerase inhibition are different among species. “Telomeres and Telomerase in Cancers”, edited by Keiko Hiyama, focuses on “Human” telomeres and telomerase, from basic biology and hypothesis in human normal cells and cancer cells to clinical application as diagnostic tools and therapeutic targets in anti-cancer strategy. Cutting-edge experimental protocols for their evaluation are also included. This coverage will enable medical oncologists and students as well as basic researchers to capture the up-to-date entire picture of human telomeres and telomerase in cancer.

Sensitization of Cancer Cells for Chemo/Immuno/Radio-therapy

Cancer chemotherapy can be traced back to the 1940’s and since then the world has witnessed the discovery and the important application of several new drugs. The successes of combination chemotherapy suggested that all cancers can be treated provided that the correct combination of drugs at the correct doses and correct intervals are established. However, with time, tumor cells develop mechanisms of resistance to apoptosis and no longer respond to the majority of cytotoxic therapies. Sensitization of Cancer Cells for Chemo/Immuno/Radio-therapy, edited by Benjamin Bonavida, reviews novel approaches developed to reverse tumor cell resistance to chemo/immuno/radio-therapy and the use of various sensitizing agents in combination with various cytotoxics. Such sensitizing agents target gene products that regulate resistance and therefore identify novel targets for drug development. This book also introduces several of the current approaches that have been developed by established investigators in the field that are aimed at overcoming resistance. This book is the first that compiles studies on tumor cell sensitization and is useful for students, scientists, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies.
