About this book

This comprehensive resource provides authoritative knowledge of the most up-to-date prevention and treatment strategies for thoracic malignancies. Established and investigational therapies are placed in the context of tumor biology for a full understanding of the pharmacogenetics, etiology, and changing epidemiology of lung cancer. Expert clinicians detail the function of predictive and prognostic factors in the utilization of chemo-radiotherapy, adjuvant and neoadjuvant treatment, and targeted agents. The promises and potential pitfalls of investigational strategies are evaluated with exceptional insight and clarity, with unique attention paid to the mechanisms of drug resistance and targets for lung cancer treatment and prevention. Lung Cancer: Prevention, Management, and Emerging Therapies engages the entire spectrum of therapeutic modalities with focus on systemic approaches. Disease coverage includes newly diagnosed and recurrent non-small cell lung cancer, small cell carcinoma, and mesothelioma. Critical examination of the impact, methodology, and design of clinical trials is presented along with new paradigms for personalized approaches and individual risk assessment.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This comprehensive review of prevention and treatment strategies for malignancies of the thorax thoroughly investigates tumor biology and discusses established and emerging therapies. … The book is written for a wide audience that includes pathologists, pulmonologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgical oncologists. … I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in current and future therapies for lung cancer. This is one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date accounts of the field.” (Nagendra S. Koneru, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2010)
