personalized treatment of breast cancer 2016

masakazu toi

description

this book deals with the essential factors in the personalization of treatment for primary breast cancer. these include host issues, lymph node surgery, radiation therapy, and preoperative systemic treatment requiring specialized knowledge, multidisciplinary care experience, techniques, and research. locoregional treatment in conjunction with systemic treatments is another important factor, with options for local therapy significantly affected by genetic brca mutation. axillary treatment issues have become top priorities in recent primary breast cancer care, and these are highlighted in the book's presentation of technological advances in lymph node mapping and diagnosis, axillary clearance in patients with nodal metastasis, and the role of axillary surgery. attention is also given to locoregional treatment after preoperative systemic therapy. because therapeutic impact differs depending upon biological characteristics such as tumor subtype, local therapy should be based both on tumor biology and on therapeutic response in parallel. associated translational research and mathematical prediction tools such as nomograms also are introduced.
this book provides the essence of primary breast cancer care, particularly its individualization with novel therapeutic concepts and strategies, and will greatly benefit physicians and clinical investigators in breast cancer institutions.show more

comprehensive textbook of genitourinary oncology was the first major textbook to focus on the field of genitourinary oncology from the combined perspectives of the molecular biologist, pathologist, oncologist and urologist. the first edition of the book had three fundamental goals: 1) to be a textbook that could be read and used by practicing physicians, 2) to be an authoritative textbook for basic scientists, 3) to be an effective interpretation of this field for trainees in surgery, medical and radiation oncology, and pathology. the goals for the 4th edition remain essentially the same. the book takes a systems approach to this field, with sections on prostate, bladder, kidney, testis, and penile cancers, as well as one each on pediatric and other (less common) malignancies. this volume will introduce and distill the combined knowledge and expertise of specialist from a multitude of scientific and clinical disciplines who are internationally recognized leaders in their fields and who themselves have contributed to the field. as in the last edition, authors will be drawn form the fields of urological surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology as well as translational scientists and epidemiologists.

key features:

  • new! covers merging image-guided targeted technologies such as magnetic resonance image-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, which can precisely ablate cancerous cells without damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
  • new! greater focus on the multidisciplinary care of patients with urological cancers with improved outcomes dependent on collaborative development of care plans that incorporate evidence-based management.
  • new! includes new imaging modalities including diffusion-weighted imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging which help clinicians differentiate tumor subtypes and target treatment
  • new! increase coverage of molecular classification of cancers and the delineation of critical pathways that can identify new targets for systemic therapy and demonstrate how cells react to particular drugs.
  • new! reviews combined imaging technology, such as mr-ultrasound fusion to better guide needle biopsies, and pet-ct imaging to identify and locate biologically active metastatic lesions, as well as novel radiotracers highly specific for key molecules present in
  • new! summarize and evaluate the latest research on existing and investigational new drugs.
  • most comprehensive gu cancer book on the market
  • editors represent each of the major sub areas in this field (vogelzang/medical oncology, scardino/urology (prostate), zelefsky/radiation oncology, and linehan/urology (kidney)
  • multi-modality approach of the book reflects the way in which these cancers are managed and encourages multidisciplinary sales opportunities

endometrial cancer current epidemiology detection and management

by m.d. samir a. farghaly

endometrial cancer is the most common cancer of the female reproductive system, with more than 49,500 united states women that are diagnosed with the disease each year. it tends to develop after menopause, when a woman is between the ages of 50 and 60. it is the sixth most common cancer in women worldwide (fourteenth most common cancer overall), with 320,000 new cases diagnosed in 2012, and it is the 13th most common cause of death from cancer with nearly 86,000 deaths worldwide. endometrial cancer occurs when cells of the endometrium undergo a transformation and begin to grow and multiply without the control mechanisms that normally limit their growth. as the cells grow and multiply, they form the cancerous lesion. cancerous tumors may encroach on and invade neighboring organs or lymph nodes, or they may enter the bloodstream and spread to the bones or distant organs, such as the lungs. this process is called metastasis. metastatic tumors are the most aggressive and serious of all tumors. two main types of endometrial cancers exist. nearly all endometrial cancers are endometrial adenocarcinomas, as they originate from glandular (secreting) tissue. the other type of endometrial cancer, uterine sarcomas, originates in the connective tissue or muscle of the uterus. a subtype of endometrial adenocarcinomas, adenosquamous carcinoma, includes squamous cells (that is, the type of cells found on the surface of the skin and cervix). other subtypes of endometrial adenocarcinomas are papillary serous adenocarcinomas and clear cell carcinomas. multidisciplinary teams of experts including specialists in medical oncology, gynecologic oncology, radiology, urology, radiotherapy, and surgery are essential to utilize sophisticated imaging and laboratory tests, to confirm the diagnosis and identify the characteristics of the tumor. they all work together to determine the best treatment approach for the patient. recent progress in the development of new surgical techniques has transformed the treatment of uterine cancer, resulting in greater surgical precision and fewer complications. in addition, targeted adjuvant therapy has become useful in improving the oncologic outcome of patients with this disease.

breast cancer fertility preservation and reproduction

by nicoletta biglia, fedro alessandro peccatori

this book provides a comprehensive overview on issues surrounding fertility in patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or belong to a high-risk population. the impact of breast cancer treatment on fertility is clearly explained and all the available options for fertility preservation are discussed, including the use of assisted reproduction technologies. guidance is offered on family planning and on management options when breast cancer arises during pregnancy and when pregnancy occurs after breast cancer. answers are provided to a wide range of key questions, including: what is the impact of pregnancy after breast cancer on prognosis what advice should be given on the timing of pregnancy in relation to chemotherapy and endocrine treatment what is the effect of reducing the duration of endocrine treatment to allow an earlier attempt at pregnancy is breast feeding possible medical treatments of breast cancer have a huge impact on fertility. while many procedures can be applied to preserve fertility, all must be put into action within the very short time available before starting treatment. any delay in referral of a woman wishing to preserve her fertility to an art center with experience in oncologic patients may preclude the possibility of a future pregnancy. in addition, an increasing number of high-risk patients are asking questions about their reproductive life, from choice of contraception to the risks of assisted reproduction techniques. physicians will find this book an invaluable aid in providing flawless counseling to their patients and ensuring that they receive optimal management.
