About this book

This volume provides new data about the molecular biology of CRPC and a review of the definition, staging and prognostic factors that define CRPC. The book features an in depth review of proven therapeutic options, including bone targeted therapies, immunotherapy, chemotherapy and hormonal based therapies. Combination therapy as well as novel targeted approaches presently under investigations are also reviewed. The text provides up to date guidelines and algorithms for the management of CRPC based on international guidelines presently available as well as evidence based medicine.

As a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field, Management of Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer serves as a very useful resource for physicians and researchers dealing with this challenging malignancy.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This volume in the Current Clinical Urology series focuses on the management of castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), providing an important reference for medical oncologists, urologists, and radiation oncologists. The authors successfully update the biology and clinical aspects of CRPC management. … This book sets out the most current knowledge about the management of CRPC, a fascinating area in clinical urology. It should be part of the library of any clinician or basic scientist dealing with prostate cancer.” (Jianqing Lin, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2014)
