This outstanding team from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center takes an evidence-based approach to lung cancer management and explains these advances in depth. Comprehensive treatment guidelines are provided, the third edition of Lung Cancer explores vital issues such as: Lung cancer susceptibility and risk assessment, The pathology and pathogenesis of peripheral lung adenocarcinoma including bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, Screening for early detection, Advances in molecular and genetic markers, The detection and treatment of pre-neoplastic lesions and screening for lung cancer, Novel therapies such as angiogenesis and multi-tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Lung Cancer is a concise summary of advances in lung cancer clinical research and treatment for the clinician and is an invaluable reference for respiratory physicians, medical oncologists, clinical and surgical oncologists.
The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.
The second edition of this book is a concise and timely summary of recent advances and new research in the field of lung cancer emphasizing the biology, diagnosis, and treatment. It studies the factors influencing predisposition and the development of preneoplastic lesions, chemoprevention strategies, surgical methods, and current and future advances in radiation therapy. Editors consist of a surgeon, radiation oncologist and medical oncologist with contributions from an international list of 30 leading experts. New chapters to this edition include: Markers of Susceptibility, Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy, and Immunologic Approaches. New chapter covering thoracoscopy and its role in procedure and treatment. "...an excellent overview of a wide range of new developments in the clinical management and basic science of lung cancer. It should be essential reading for all practicing specialists in this field..." Review of the first edition from Thoracic Society News.
“The current edition builds on the strength of the previous editions … .Overall, the book was well planned. Each chapter is a concise review of the recent literature, with detailed references. Where warranted, there are tables, black-and-white diagrams, and photographs that expand on the information provided in the text. This well-organized book will be useful to pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and others with an interest in lung cancer.” (New England Journal of Medicine, December 2008)
“One of the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatises that I have surveyed … .I would recommend the book highly to anyone in allied disciplines.” (Doody's Book Reviews)
