Acclaimed by the worldwide medical community as the standard-setting oncology reference, Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology is now in its Sixth Edition. This thoroughly revised and updated classic reflects the latest breakthroughs in every aspect of oncology, from molecular biology, to multimodality treatment, to new data on cancer prevention by drugs and diet.This edition places increased emphasis on the role of molecular biology in cancer diagnosis and treatment. In light of the growing clinical importance of biological therapy, a new section on Pharmacology of Cancer Biotherapeutics has been added. Chapters describe new radiotherapy techniques such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy and innovative surgical techniques such as radiofrequency ablation of tumors, isolation-perfusion for visceral cancers, and image-guided surgery. Rehabilitation is integrated into each of this edition's chapters on organ-specific cancers. Also included are new chapters on information systems in oncology, particularly on accessing information from the World Wide Web.This edition now includes a CD-ROM bound into the book. The CD-ROM has advanced search capabilities and gives you full text, high-quality video and color slides not found in the book, direct links to PubMed, and links to our new oncology portal, LWWoncology.com.
