Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Brain gliomas have been, for many decades, hard to treat tumors. Evidence that new forms of therapy have helped to improve neurological outcomes in patients with these kinds of tumors has been substantiated by new literature. This is a review on the topic by current authorities in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to address the current aspects of the management of glioblastoma multiforme, including new chemotherapeutic agents and forms of drug delivery. These are worthy objectives.
Audience: Neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, and neuro-oncologists are the main target audiences. The authors are some of the most renowned authorities in the field of neuro-oncology and neurosurgery.
Features: Over 50 authors contribute 16 chapters in this book. The book is structured to reflect the progression of neuroscience in the development of treatment strategies for high grade gliomas and, among those, glioblastoma multiforme. One of the crucial points in the development of new therapies is the better understanding of the cell cycle and how to specifically interrupt phases of replication. The pictures are of good quality, the text well written, and the price, appropriate.
Assessment: This is an excellent book for neurology, oncology, and general medical libraries. Its contents would interest those in all areas of medicine dealing with the older population or involved with patients with glioblastoma multiforme.
