Holland - Frei Manual of Cancer Medicineserves as a quick reference to current information on a extensive list of cancers, including breast, lung, thyroid, colorectal, ovarian, prostate, and gastric cancer, to name but a few. Presented as an accessible pocket-sized handbook, the chapters are organised in an outline format, offering only the most essential information on the etiology, staging (including TNM staging) and treatment for each cancer type. Individual chapters are devoted to the molecular biology of cancer, cancer prevention, cancer screening, the mechanisms of chemotherapy and diagnostic imaging in cancer. Additionally, each chapter lists all the major phase III clinical trials, and therefore, serves as an excellent reference of the major randomised controlled trials for each cancer reported to date. Specific chapters are also dedicated to the discussion of oncologic emergencies, pain and palliation and prescription complications. At the conclusion of the book, a glossary of oncologic terms and chemotherapeutic drug programs, a table of common cancer incidences and an overview of the mechanisms, common uses and related toxicities of various anti-cancer agents are featured. In addition, performance status tables, mathematical formulas and a listing of common biomedical / cancer web sites are highlighted.... gastric adenocarcinoma. l79 Leukapheresis for ALL. 49l Leukemia acute lymphoblastie. 47 l-497 acute mveloid.498-5l7 chronic lymphoeytic. 528-53l chronic myelogenous. 532-545 Leukeran. 78t for CLL. 640\.
