Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara E. Kitchell, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a useful new handbook on the use of cancer chemotherapy agents in veterinary medicine. It contains contributions from several individuals who are experienced in small-animal cancer medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a balanced view of veterinary medical oncology, with the stated intent of avoiding personal or institutional biases in presenting the current state of the specialty. This is a worthy objective and is for the most part met. The book provides concise overviews of the basic science of cancer, the pharmacology of drugs as used in veterinary practice, and a fairly complete compilation of combination chemotherapy protocols that are in current use around the United States.
Audience: The target audience is the veterinary practitioner as well as the veterinary student. The authors and contributors have done an excellent job of distilling this complex and somewhat controversial subject down to essentials, so that this book provides a valuable quick reference for the busy practitioner.
Features: The book is divided into three sections: basic cancer biology and principles of cancer medicine (including biohazard aspects of chemotherapy); an overview of the pharmacology of individual drugs in small animals; and a compilation of combination chemotherapy protocols in current use. Each protocol in section 3 is attributed to the contributor, and space is left throughout the book for notes. The references are up-to-date and appropriate, and a helpful index and appendixes are included.
Assessment: This concise and well-written book is a useful addition to the veterinary literature. I would recommend its purchase to anyone with an interest in this subject.

Includes a drug data section and a selection of chemotherapeutic protocols recommended as treatment for selected tumor types. 4.5x7" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
