Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin I Resnick, M.D.(University Hospitals of Cleveland)
Description: This is a companion to another book by the same author, Urological Cancers (Springer, 2005), and it is intended to bring readers the latest information on many aspects of urological cancer treatment with a particular emphasis on pharmacological developments. Though surgical management of several malignancies is reviewed, the majority of the book addresses advances in nonsurgical management, such as chemotherapy.
Purpose: The editor has selected authors to review their particular areas of interest and, in most instances, the emphasis is on new applications of chemotherapy often used for treating patients with advanced disease. This is an important area for new drugs and applications are being developed; oncologists need to be aware of these evolving areas.
Audience: The book is written for those oncologists (surgical, medical, and radiation) caring for patients with urological malignancies. Because of the emphasis of the book, it will most likely attract the attention of medical oncologists. Those physicians treating patients with other malignancies will find the information of interest to them, as will physicians in training in various surgical and nonsurgical fields. The editor and authors are recognized experts in their particular areas of interest.
Features: "Chapters cover malignancies of the prostate, bladder, kidney, testes and penis. In some (e.g., kidney), the emphasis is almost entirely on pharmacologic treatment but in others (e.g., prostate), other forms of treatment are reviewed as well. New developments in chemotherapy are discussed in all chapters bringing readers up to date on this important aspect of medical oncology. Urological and radiation oncologists would likely feel that more information should have been presented in their areas of activity as well. "
Assessment: This is an up-to-date resource for evolving therapies useful in the management of patients with urological malignancies. Much of the emphasis of the book is on the application of chemotherapy. It should prove to be a useful resource for those physicians caring for these patients.
