Renal and Adrenal Tumors

Biology and Management

Alastair W. S. Ritchie, Arie Belldegrun
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 634

In the past decade there has been an explosion of far-reaching developments in the biological and physical sciences relevant to cancer. The incidence and mortality from renal cell carcinoma has continuously risen over the past 50 years. Despite this, survival for patients has notably improved and great strides have been made in the management of patients with renal cell carcinoma. Our understanding of the natural history of renal cell carcinoma, the role of nephrectomy, the benefits of immunotherapy and the possibilities of new technologies are evolving and are being integrated with advances in classification and staging. This book provides a comprehensive source of information on renal and adrenal tumors that will be of practical interest for students, residents, physicians, and researchers alike. It reviews comprehensively the current understanding of the biology, pathophysiology and urological oncology of the disease, looking at the clinical problems and potential solutions including chapters on both the scientific and clinical principles. Fully illustrated, the book emphasises new advances in molecular biology, pathogenesis, detection and experimental therapeutics and focuses on new developments in clinical research. An international team of recognized of experts have been brought together to provide historical perspectives, an overview of basic facts, and an assessment and exploration of the newer developments in our understanding of the clinical, genetic, and molecular aspects of these diseases. The book clearly distinguishes what is generally agreed upon from what is still controversial, giving both sides equal treatment.

Epilepsy and Movement Disorders

etc., Frederick Andermann
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 586

The boundaries between epilepsy and movement disorders are difficult to define; some syndromes or diseases may combine the two and many manifestations of one are similar to the other. For the first time, a distinguished, international team of specialists comprehensively examines the clinical, neurophysiological, genetic, pharmacological and molecular factors which underlie the relationships and differences between the two disorders. They examine the methods for investigating motor cortex excitability and the electrophysiological and chemical characteristics of epilepsies which resemble movement disorders. They present a scheme for neurophysiological classification of myoclonic epilepsies and myoclonus and give a detailed analysis of the disorders which cause diagnostic problems in children and adults. There is also an innovative, up-to-date review of the genetic syndromes which associate epilepsy and paroxysmal dyskinesias, and a review of the drugs used to treat, or which may precipitate, epilepsy and movement disorders. This is essential reading for clinicians and neuroscientists.

Oxford Textbook of Oncology

etc., Ian Tannock
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 64

Provides an international reference on clinical cancer medicine. It combines the experience of the world's leading cancer experts, particularly from leading European centres of excellence, with an approach that emphasizes the importance of the best clinical evidence: the guidelines to management are based on the sum of all the available evidence. For rare tumours, where clinical experience is the main guide to treatment, the editors have ensured that options and alternatives are discussed. There are major sections on all cancer sites, and in each section investigation, epidemiology, pathology, causes and treatment are covered in a consistent manner to aid reference. Quality-of-life and psychosocial issues, palliation, and communication are included.

Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology

Alex M. Davison, Christopher Q. Winearls
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 3166

The first edition of the "Oxford Textbook of Clinical Nephrology" established itself as a clinical reference text for practising nephrologists worldwide. The second edition comes five years later, during which time there have been significant advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of renal disease and advances in therapy. The text argues that placing existing treatment on a firm scientific basis or stopping ineffective or dangerous treatment is as important as introducing proven new therapies, and all the contributors have taken this fully into account.
