Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Theresa M. Yannaco, RN, MS, AOCN (Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical Center)
Description: This book was developed by a multidisciplinary team of editors for use by all practitioners involved in the care of the cancer patient. Unique to this text is the use of graphically designed colored universal symbols highlighting the common body system adverse reactions that may be experienced by the patient receiving the individual chemotherapeutic agents discussed throughout the drug monograph section of the text.
Purpose: The overall purpose is to provide a quick source of information on chemotherapeutic agents, commonly used or standard chemotherapy regimens, management of commonly encountered toxicities, and information on commonly used conversion formulas utilized in prescribing the correct dosages of various chemotherapy agents. Although it is not intended to be a comprehensive reference, it may be utilized by oncology clinicians as an aid in the therapeutic decision-making process for both the adult and pediatric oncology patients.
Audience: Targeted to all practitioners involved in the care of cancer patients, including oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, fellows, and students, this text provides information on most of the commercially available anticancer drugs, ancillary agents used in the treatment of cancer, and some of the investigational agents the authors believe to be important new therapies or which may soon be approved for commercial use.
Features: The first chapter is an alphabetically organized monograph of commonly prescribed cancer chemotherapy drugs inclusive of the uses, mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, known drug interactions, dosages, administration, side effects, practitioner guidelines, and references. The second chapter discusses the commonly used hematopoietic growth factors currently in use. Chapter Three discusses commonly prescribed chemotherapy regimes in adults and is organized by body system. Chapter Four discusses the commonly prescribed chemotherapy regimens in pediatric tumors. Chapters Five through 10 discuss the commonly prescribed drugs used in the management of nausea and vomiting, pain, tumor lysis syndrome, hypercalcemia, malignant pleural effusions, bone marrow patients, and the medical management of acute disseminated intravascular coagulation in patients with acute leukemia. The use of tables throughout adds to the clear presentation of the written text. The handy pocket size permits easy portability for use in any clinical setting.
Assessment: This book provides a ready resource for the oncology clinician working with both pediatric and adult populations in a variety of clinical settings. It is a recommended addition to the library of the individual practitioner who is interested in learning about the more commonly prescribed anticancer agents.
