About this book

Our goal for this second edition of Oncologic Therapies is to again provide a brief introduction to the principles and practice of oncology and to oncologic therapies. The book provides a - scription of the major treatment modalities including surgery, radiation therapy, and systemic therapies including classic chemotherapy and biological therapies as well as a brief ov- view of supportive care and quality of life assessments. This is followed by a discussion of site-specific cancers covering the hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Each chapter is designed to provide a brief discussion of background infor- tion including epidemiology,risk factors,and staging principles followed by a description of standard therapies according to stage as well as current investigational approaches. While the major pathological and clinical features of each disease are d- cussed,the emphasis of this book is clearly on the state of the art of standard and investigational therapies for each tumor type. As such,this book should be useful to general internists with an interest in oncology as well as housestaff and junior oncologists of all major oncologic modalities seeking a brief and focused patient management resource. References providing more - depth discussion for each field are also provided. We rec- mend that any information pertaining to specific chemotherapy regimens and dosing be confirmed in a primary reference since we cannot exclude the possibility of an occasional typograp- cal error.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This handbook, written for all physicians who treat cancer patients, provides a survey of current therapeutic concepts of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies in internal oncology. … Practitioners and postgraduate students of all levels are provided with comprehensive information on individual therapeutic strategies according to tumor staging and prognostic factors. Supportive care, pain relief methods and ethical problems are also described. International contributors summarize all aspects of therapeutic concepts in oncology." (Anticancer Research, Issue 23, 2003)

"The targeted audience is the general internist, house staff and junior oncologist. … The overall text is an excellent introduction to important principles inherent in the field of oncology and, as such, is perfect for the targeted audience, which should include medical students and nurses. … The use of algorithms, summary tables and guidelines clearly enhances the summary nature of this textbook. … The targeted audience … would enjoy this summary, as would general practitioners." (Al B. Benson III, Oncology, Vol. 66 (1), 2004)
