About this book

This Recent Results in Cancer Research volume contains the majority of the invited expert contributions from the First St. Gallen EORTC Gastrointestinal Cancer Conference, held on 22-24 March 2012 in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Written by some of the world’s leading experts in the field, the volume constitutes a comprehensive update on recent developments in the imaging, molecular biology, pathology, and multidisciplinary management of early cancer of the gastrointestinal tract. The latest recommendations regarding diagnosis and treatment are provided, and areas of consensus and controversy, identified. While the principal focus is on esophageal and gastric cancer, advances in the treatment of colorectal and pancreatic cancer are also discussed in some detail. This book will be of interest to every clinician involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal malignancies.​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is an up-to-date, scientifically reviewed summary of current treatment options for select GI cancers. Each section stands independently and is well presented, yet brief. … It is written for clinicians or researchers focusing on clinical cancer treatment. Surgical, medical, and radiation providers will benefit from the topics and presentations. … The table of contents is a very easy way to identify select sections to address specific situations. … The literature cited is international and includes both Eastern and Western points of view.” (Neal Wilkinson, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2013)
