About this book

Having been a fairly dormant specialty for many decades, in recent years there has been a remarkable increase in activity in Neuro-oncology from basic science through to the clinics. Reflecting this there have been considerable advancements in the understanding of the biology of CNS malignancies which have infirmed the development of many novel and successful therapies. This work aims to bring together the scattered literature on the new concepts in neuro-oncology for the benefit of those in the field. The book moves from concepts in the scientific basis of neuro-oncology, through to modelling techniques and finishing on the translation into clinical practice.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an up to date reference on the surgical, chemotherapy, and radiosurgery of gliomas, both low and high grade neoplasms. … I highly recommend this book for neurosurgeons, oncologists, radiation researchers, fellows and students.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2014)

“In this book, the authors aim to comprehensibly describe new findings, as well as established facts, and to discuss their influence on current and possible future therapies. … this is a well written book on current advances in the field of neuro-oncology. It is worth reading for basic researchers working in the field of neuro-oncology, as well as neuro-oncologists and neurosurgeons.” (Anne-Katrin Hickmann, Innovative Neurosurgery, Vol. 1 (1), 2013)
