DESCRIPTION
 
The consummate reference source for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, internists, surgical oncologists, and others who treat cancer patients, Cancer Medicine 8 covers the ever-widening sphere of current cancer knowledge and clinical practice. 

In this new 8th edition, an outstanding editorial team from world-renowned medical centers continues to hone the leading edge forged in previous editions, with timely information on biology, immunology, etiology, epidemiology, prevention, screening, pathology, imaging, and therapy. 

The book is a testament to the editorial panel’s creed – that innovative, comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment of cancer patients must be grounded in a fundamental understanding of cancer biology. Cancer Medicine 8 does a superb job of bringing scientific principles into clinical practice. This text is the ultimate resource of new information providing the basis for better informed cancer therapy choices.

Cancer Medicine 8 features hundreds of 4-color illustrations, photographs, tables, graphs, and algorithms that make this text an invaluable clinical tool in recognizing characteristic appearances of both patient and tissue.

The 137 tightly focused chapters are organized into 5 sections:

I           CARDINAL MANIFESTATIONS OF CANCER
II          SCIENTIFIC FOUNDATIONS OF CANCER
III         PRINCIPLES OF CANCER DIAGNOSIS
IV         PRINCIPLES OF THERAPEUTIC MODALITIES
V          PRINCIPLES OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY MANAGEMENT

SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Cancer Medicine 8 is published in collaboration with the American Association for Cancer Research.
  • 10 new chapters in the 8th edition cover Epigenetics, Cancer Immunotherapy, Inflammation and Cancer, Molecular Imaging, Molecular Diagnostics in Cancer, Personalized Medicine in Oncology Drug Development, Genomic and Systems Biology, Cancer Nanotechnology, Androgen Deprivation Strategies in the Treatment of Advanced Prostate Cancer, Kemeny Treatment of Liver Metastases.

MAJOR REVISIONS
 
Chapter 6: Oncogenes An entire section is devoted to oncogenes like kit, RET, BRAF, Aktgenes,and the new drugs that specifically target them. This chapter not only provides a list of these new therapies but also insight into how they target the oncogenes and their mutations, as well as therapy response and efficacy.
Chapter 11: Tumor Angiogenesis This chapter provides a wealth of new data and understanding of the mechanisms of angiogenesis and how it contributes to the malignancy of various cancers. The Clinical Advancement section provides an extensive summary of new trials investigating numerous novel angiogenesis agents.
Chapter 33: Chemoprevention of Cancer This chapter also provides a considerable amount of new information for a broad range of clinical trials such as the HPV vaccine trial FUTURE, SELECT, STAR, APPROVe, and PreSAP. The rationales for these trials are discussed, and resulting data from the completed trials are presented. 
Chapter 54: Cytokines and Hematopoietic Growth Factors Research on cytokines is another area that is exploding in magnitude. This chapter presents a wealth of new information on promising new therapeutic agents. There is also updated information on the therapeutic usage of currently available agents such as hemotopoietic growth factors (HGF), erythropoietin, and thromobopoietic agents. 
Chapter 55: Monoclonal Serotherapy A considerable amount of research has been done in the past few years on therapeutic and targeted agents in cancer therapy. Updated information and data is provided from recent trials for therapies previously discussed in Cancer Medicine edition 7 covering therapeutic agents and targeted toxins.
Chapter 76: Neoplasms of the Head and Neck There is a discussion of changes in treatment methods for certain cancers such as the recent shift from surgery to combined chemotherapy with radiotherapy for tonsillar cancer, nasal and paranasal sinus cancers, and laryngeal cancer.
Chapter 77: Cancer of the Lung Advances in diagnostic techniques are described, for example, ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration and electromagnetic navigation diagnostic bronchoscopy. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) discussion is updated. New sections are devoted to prognostic and predictive biomarkers.
 
AUDIENCE
Medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists; pathologists; internists; surgeons; oncology nurses; radiation therapists.
