About this book

Malignancies are frequent complications in organ transplantation, mainly as the result of infection with certain viruses and of long-term immunosuppression. The epidemiology confirms that the increased incidence concerns certain cancers, especially HIV-related skin cancers and EBV-related lymphoproliferative malignancies.
This book covers all currently available information on this important topic of the relationships between transplantation and malignancies: preexisting cancers, posttransplant cancers, their etiology and pathophysiology, their prevention and treatment. A significant part of the volume is devoted to prophylaxis, early detection and modern forms of therapy in posttransplant lymphomas. As a conclusion of all these new data, the theory of immunosurveillance deserves to be significantly modified.

Reviews

` ...significant amount of new data. The text ... provides interesting data on the epidemiology of malignancies following transplantation, and also on their pathogenesis, management, and potential treatment. In view of the increasing number of patients undergoing transplantation this book is to be welcomed.'
Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, 13 (1998)
