L'imperatore del male. Una biografia del cancro

Siddhartha Mukherjee

editore: Mondadori

pagine: 662

"L'imperatore del male" è la storia dell'epica lotta contro il cancro. La cronaca degli sforzi per debellare una malattia antica un tempo clandestina, quasi da non nominare che oggi è un'entità multiforme, pervasa di una profonda valenza metaforica, medica, scientifica e politica. Questa "biografia" vuole comprenderne la personalità e demistificarne il comportamento per capire se sia possibile sradicarla per sempre dai nostri corpi e dalla nostra società. Premio Pulitzer nel 2011, "L'imperatore del male" è un libro rigoroso, animato dalla scrittura ammaliante e dalla tensione narrativa di un autore straordinario, ma anche dalla pietas di un grande medico. Nato come diario di un anno in ospedale, racconta di vittorie e sconfitte, di offensive seguite da altre offensive, di eroismo e superbia, di spirito di sopravvivenza e capacità di recupero; e, inevitabilmente, dei feriti, dei condannati, dei dimenticati, dei caduti.

Lauren Pecorino

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 375

Molecular Biology of Cancer: Mechanisms, Targets, and Therapeutics offers an accessible, engaging, and optimistic account of cancer biology for undergraduate and graduate students.

Cure palliative pediatriche: la gestione del dolore

a cura di S. Baroncini

editore: Editori Vari

pagine: 404

In particolare, in ambito pediatrico, il controllo del dolore richiede un approccio scientifico ma al tempo stesso personalizzato per rispondere ai bisogni specifici dei bambini di età differenti e con patologie di svariata natura e complessità. Garantire la qualità della vita, obiettivo primario delle cure palliative, richiede che tutti coloro che si prendono cura del bambino e della sua famiglia siano consapevoli della necessità di mantenere attiva e aggiornata la cultura del dolore, diffondendola per non negare opportunità terapeutiche, farmacologiche e non farmacologiche, limitando così la sofferenza legata all'esperienza della malattia cronico-degenerativa. Questo volume può essere un valido strumento di approfondimento e aggiornamento non solo per tutti coloro che operano nell'ambito delle cure palliative pediatriche, ma anche per i professionisti di altri settori che si impegnano quotidianamente per contrastare la sofferenza inutile dei bambini.
