Controversies in Lung Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Controversies in Lung Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach

The current volume, Controversies in Lung Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach, is Volume 25 in the Basic and Clinical Oncology series. Many of the advances in oncology have resulted from close interaction between the basic scientist and the clinical researcher. The current volume follows, expands on, and illustrates the success of this relationship as demonstrated by new therapies and promising areas for scientific research.

As editor of the series, my goal has been to recruit volume editors who not only have established reputations based on their outstanding contributions to oncology, but also have an appreciation for the dynamic interface between the laboratory and the clinic. To date, the series has consisted of monographs on topics such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia, nucleoside analogs in cancer therapy, therapeutic applications of interleukin-2, retinoids in oncology, gene therapy of cancer, and principles of antineoplastic drug development and pharmacology. Controversies in Lung Cancer is certainly a most important addition to the series.

Presenting contrasting viewpoints of leading national and international authorities, this illuminating reference explores unresolved issues in the treatment of patients with lung cancer. Providing evidence-based approaches to specific concerns in therapeutic management, Controversies in Lung Cancer guides clinicians confronting decisions regarding day-to-day oncologic practice. 
Includes opposing opinions on, among other issues, the timing of thoracic radiotherapy for patients with limited stage small cell lung cancer, by Dr. Nevin Murray, British Columbia Cancer Agency, Vancouver, Canada, and Dr. Michael Perry, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, Columbia, Missouri!  Emphasizing quality of life, nutrition, and supportive care of lung cancer patients, Controversies in Lung Cancer considers  dose intensification of chemotherapy in small cell and non-small cell lung cancer  the value of three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy  endobronchial brachytherapy  management of superior sulcus tumors  and more! 
With over 1700 literature references, drawings, photographs, and tables, Controversies in Lung Cancer is a timely resource for medical, radiation, and thoracic oncologists; thoracic surgeons; pulmonologists; hematologists; primary care physicians; nurses; and medical school students and residents in these disciplines.
