editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)
A truly comprehensive reference for the management of patients with endocrine cancer The new edition of Clinical Endocrine Oncology has been fully revised and extended making it the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference available. Written and edited by leading international experts in the field, it sets the standard in multidisciplinary care for patients with endocrine tumors. The book provides specific and detailed guidance on the basic, clinical, investigative and therapeutic processes required for the thorough evaluation of a patient with a tumor in an endocrine organ. The eighty-four chapters are arranged in seven parts: * Endocrine Oncology and Therapeutic Options * Thyroid and Parathyroid Tumors * Pituitary and Hypothalamic Lesions * Adrenal and Gonadal Tumors * Neuroendocrine Tumors and the Clinical Syndromes * Medical Syndromes and Endocrine Neoplasia * Endocrine-responsive Tumors and Female Reproductive Hormone Therapy. This authoritative and practical text will be an invaluable resource for all those working in the field, including endocrinologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation therapists, interventional radiologists, specialist nurses, and clinical scientists. John A.H. Wass is joined in this edition by a new editor, Ian D. Hay, Professor of Medicine and Endocrinology Research at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.
Management of Thyroid Cancer and Related Nodular Disease
I. Ross McDougall
editore: Springer London Ltd
This book covers all aspects of thyroid cancer. Heavily illustrated and including pathology, thyroid and whole-body scans, ultrasounds and other nuclear medicine and radiological studies, the book addresses important issues that physicians should cover when dealing with their patients. The text is designed for physicians, endocrinologists, nuclear medicine physicians, general and head and neck surgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists, and primary care doctors. Other groups are residents, medical students, and nurse practitioners researching a patient-related problem.
Essentials of Thyroid Cancer Management
A Guidebook for Endocrinologists, Surgeons, Nuclear Medicine Physicians and Radiation Oncologists
Ernest L. Mazzaferri, Jessica Kirwane altri
editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
The goal of this book is to provide Endocrinologists, Surgeons, Nuclear Medicine Physicians, and Radiation Oncologists with practical advice about managing patients with thyroid cancer. This book will not replace the excellent publications that focus on a highly speci?c topic or provide an exhaustive review of major s- jects from the perspective of a particular specialty. These kinds of publications will always be an important source of information for both students and expe- enced practitioners. The void that we see is the lack of a single, concise, up-- date reference that is applicable to all of the specialists who make clinical de- sions about thyroid cancer patients. Essentials of Thyroid Cancer Management will ?ll this void in a manner that is both user-friendly and technically compreh- sive. For reading ef?ciency, this book contains the minimum of text required to explain how to make sound clinical decisions in speci?c situations. We rely heavily on tables, diagrams, graphs, photographs, and other ?gures to convey this information. Subjects are addressed in a large number of chapters that each focus on a relatively narrow topic. In some cases, there is overlap between the information in multiple different chapters so the reader does not have to page back and forth between different sections of the book. As occurs in every area of medicine, there is controversy about important issues in the management of thyroid cancer.
Methods and Protocols

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Annually approximately 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with the disease and most will die from it within five years. P- creatic ductal adenocarcinoma is unique because of its late onset in age, high mortality, small tumor samples infiltrated with normal cells, and a lack of both early detection and effective therapies. Some of these characteristics have made studying this disease a challenge. Pancreatic cancer develops as a result of the accumulation of genetic alterations in cancer-causing genes, such as the oncogenes and the tumor-s- pressor genes. In the last decade, major progress has been made in identifying important oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes for the disease. In Panc- atic Cancer: Methods and Protocols, we review the classical techniques that have contributed to the advances in pancreatic research and introduce new strategies that we hope will add to future breakthroughs in the field of cancer biology. Pancreatic Cancer: Methods and Protocols provides a broad range of protocols for molecular, cellular, pathological, and statistical analyses of s- radic and familial pancreatic cancer. It covers topics from in vitro cell c- tures to in vivo mouse models, DNA to protein manipulation, and mutation analyses to treatment development. We believe that our book will prove an invaluable source of proven protocols for those who are interested in either basic or translational research in pancreatic cancer.

Management of Pituitary Tumors
The Clinician's Practical Guide

To round out the clinician's understanding of the illness, a patient describes the experience of diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. Comprehensive and accessible, "Management of Pituitary Tumors: The Clinician's Practical Guide" brings together all the medical fields involved in treating pituitary tumors, both for novices in the specialities that manage these cases, and for pituitary specialists seeking to understand better the contribution of other medical disciplines to the treatment of these tumors.
