DeVita, Hellman, and Rosenberg, each annual volume in this exciting series presents concise summaries of the state of the art in cancer basic science and clinical application, written by 18 of the top researchers and clinicians in the world. As with all the volumes in the series, PIO 2004 covers critical issues in clinical cancer care and research in a scholarly though readable style. Chapters on advances in treatment and diagnosis, including DNA microarrays, growth factor receptors, new applications of thalidomide, and allografting in NHL review the state of the art in these emerging fields. Top experts provide timely overviews of focused ultrasound therapy, hormone therapy for prostate cancer, and CHOP and rituxin for DLCL.
