This second edition has been updated in a user-friendly layout that makes its comprehensive information extremely accessible. The handbook, written for all physicians who treat cancer patients, provides a survey of current therapeutic concepts of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies in internal oncology. Each individual chapter of this shortened new edition is structured in the same way and features a brief outline or tabular summary of the main aspects of epidemiology, pathology, staging, and diagnosis. The main focus is on the therapeutic strategy, i.e., an interdisciplinary approach to systemic drug therapy. Surgical and radiological concepts of treatment are also covered, as are supportive care, pain relief methods and ethical problems. This title is a must for clinicians and practitioners as well as interns, residents and postgraduate students.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This handbook, written for all physicians who treat cancer patients, provides a survey of current therapeutic concepts of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies in internal oncology. ... Practitioners and postgraduate students of all levels are provided with comprehensive information on individual therapeutic strategies according to tumor staging and prognostic factors. Supportive care, pain relief methods and ethical problems are also described. International contributors summarize all aspects of therapeutic concepts in oncology." (Anticancer Research, Issue 23, 2003)

"The targeted audience is the general internist, house staff and junior oncologist. ... The overall text is an excellent introduction to important principles inherent in the field of oncology and, as such, is perfect for the targeted audience, which should include medical students and nurses. ... The use of algorithms, summary tables and guidelines clearly enhances the summary nature of this textbook. ... The targeted audience ... would enjoy this summary, as would general practitioners." (Al B. Benson III, Oncology, Vol. 66 (1), 2004)
