Description

A Doody's Core Title 2012

Emerging Cancer Therapeutics is a trinary, hard cover, periodical that is designed to provide an up-to-date evidence-based review of a dedicated emerging cancer therapy topic of interest to clinicians and scientists who are involved in the care of patients receiving cancer treatment. It will serve as both a reference and instructional tool for students, housestaff, fellows, practicing clinical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, cancer biologists, and interdisciplinary colleagues throughout the oncology spectrum.

With contributions from experts across the United States and Canada, Prostate Cancer details the current management of prostate cancer and reviews new therapies in development for prostate cancer, with an emphasis on castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Coverage includes discussion of multiple new agents that have been shown to impact overall survival or improve skeletal-related events in metastatic CRPC as well as articles covering new data on screening and prevention, integration of surgery and radiation with newly emerging medical therapies, and coverage of the newest developments in immunotherapy. This book is a valuable tool for clinicians, nurses, researchers, medical students, residents, and fellows.
