Adult Leukemias summarizes advances in leukemia biology and treatment. It discusses the most successful treatments currently available and examines the remaining obstacles to a cure. Dr. Wiernik�s team at New York Medical College has done seminal work in clinical investigation as well as patient management in the leukemias. The subject lends itself particularly well to color illustrations, a key feature of the American Cancer Society Atlas of Clinical Oncology series. This book is an essential reference tool for medical and radiation oncologists and for hematologists.
