DeVita, Hellman, and Rosenberg’s Cancer 9/e Principles and Practice of Oncology

Devita V.T. May 2011 Lippincott W.&W. 2800 pp € 319.90 € 269.90 special price valid till 30/06/2011

Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology has been acclaimed by the worldwide medical community as the standard-setting oncology reference. Its primary goal is to present the practicing oncologist with the practical as well as cutting-edge information needed to ensure the best possible care for each individual patient. The hallmark of this book from its inception and a major reason it has gained worldwide acceptance as the definitive source of cancer information has been its approach to the treatment of cancer patients by stage of presentation with a tightly coordinated description of the role of each treatment modality in the care of individual patients. To ensure a balance multidisciplinary approach, a surgeon, a medical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist author each of the major treatment chapters. Each of the major treatment sections is preceded by an updated, brief chapter describing the molecular biology of that cancer and the prospects this new information holds for the improved management of cancer patients. Greater emphasis has been given in recent editions to the increasing importance of molecular biology and cancer screening and prevention, as well as palliative care, supportive oncology and quality of life issues.

Handboek colorectaal carcinoom

Punt C.J.A. nov.2011 De Tijdstroom ca 400 pp € 49.00

Met een incidentie van circa 50.000 gevallen per jaar en met een sterftecijfer van ongeveer 4000 per jaar, behoren de tumoren van rectum en colon tot de top-25 van medische aandoeningen in Nederland. Door de vergrijzing loopt de incidentie jaarlijks bovendien nog licht op. Door nieuwe behandelopties (er zijn verbeterde therapeutische mogelijkheden en er is winst uit een verbeterde zorgorganisatie) daalt daarentegen de sterfte enigszins. Dit boek is bedoeld voor internisten, chirurgen, radiotherapeuten, pathologen, en artsen-in-opleiding. Het boek zal een op de Nederlandse praktijk gericht overzicht geven van de actuele stand van zaken met betrekking tot etiologie, pathogenese, diagnostiek en behandeling van alle voorkomende varianten van het colorectaal carcinoom.

Immunomodulating Drugs for the Treatment of Cancer (IMiDs)

Chanan-Khan A.A.A. 2011 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins 400 pp € 113.90

Immunomodulatory (IMiDs) drugs are a new class of anticancer agents that has made a tremendous impact on the treatment of patients with various malignant diseases, including blood cancers and several cancers of the solid organs. Their popularity in prescribing is based on several important characteristics including: (1) oral bioavailability, (2) non-chemotherapeutic, (3) extremely welltolerated in all age groups, (4) ability to activate patient’s own immune response against cancer, (5) ease of combination with other agents such as chemotherapy resulting in higher responses as well as (6) variability of anticancer activity and a number of cancers. While there is a lot of literature published on these agents, there is no textbook that provides a comprehensive resource for clinicians and researchers regarding these agents and their rapidly emerging role in cancer medicine. The clinical applications of these agents are not limited to oncologists and hematologists, but also impact primary care doctors who care for these patients. Furthermore, new investigations are defining the role of these agents in non-malignant disorders as well. This textbook brings the most current information on these novel compounds to clinicians and scientists involved in the care of cancer patients. A companion website offers the fully searchable text and an image bank.
