About this book

Therapeutic options for patients with myeloma have radically changed over the past ten years. Myeloma Therapy: Pursuing the Plasma Cell provides updated various treatment options for patients with myeloma, with focus on the emerging and speculative aspects of myeloma therapy. Written by clearly acknowledged leaders in the field of myeloma therapy and research, Myeloma Therapy: Pursuing the Plasma Cell presents significant material on the biology and potential agents used to address specific signaling pathways, all of which are critical to myeloma biology and therapy. State of the art information from many of the leaders in the plasma cell disorders world includes disease pathogenesis and biology, chemotherapy based approaches, immune based therapies, currently approved novel agents, developing targets, supportive care, and other plasma cell disorders. Myeloma Therapy: Pursuing the Plasma Cell is a comprehensive collection and tremendous source in this time of rapid change in clinical and preclinical disease knowledge.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book Myeloma Therapy: Pursuing the Plasma Cell, edited by Sagar Lonial, arrives just in time. … a comprehensive, updated review of all the problems concerning myeloma. The authors are among the world’s top scientific leaders in this field … . Consultation and systematic reading are interesting, useful, and very agreeable. It cannot be lacking in the library of the hematologists and oncologists taking care of myeloma patients, and it’s also a worthwhile volume for scientists involved in preclinical research." (Sergio Storti, Laboratory Hematology, Vol. 15 (34), 2009)

“Myeloma therapy by Sagar Lonial deals with various aspects of the plasma cell disorders and multiple myeloma in particular. … this is a goldmine of information written in a style that is accessible to the biochemically interested clinician. … is highly recommended to the advanced reader in this field. It is a reference work on both clinical and biological aspects of multiple myeloma and should be part of the libraries of hospitals for physicians who are professionally frequently involved with the treatment of this disease.” (F. Offner, Acta Clinica Belgica, Vol. 65 (3), 2010)
