Authoritative, hands-on desk reference for the practicing oncologist―from the leader in the field of cancer management and treatment

A Doody's Core Title for 2017!

The MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology details the personalized multidisciplinary approach to cancer management and treatment of common and rare cancers pioneered by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Its pragmatic presentation can provide valuable insights at any stage of your career.

This completely updated third edition reflects the most recent advancements, including expanded coverage of the rapidly evolving area of biological and immune therapies of cancer, many developed at MD Anderson. It emphasizes and discusses continuing developments in diagnostic procedures, which include the incorporation of new molecular markers and revised staging systems. It also reinforces how imaging and molecular profiling can prevent administration of overly aggressive, toxic treatment regimens or invasive surgery to treat superficial or indolent tumors.

To help you quickly assess cancer management options, every chapter includes numerous tables, diagrams, imaging photographs, and prescriptive advice. Evidence-based treatment algorithms in the form of flowcharts and diagrams shaped by the clinical experience of MD Anderson’s world-class faculty enhance the text.

The third edition features important new chapters on key topics such as:

·         Pediatric Cancers

·         Molecular Biomarkers and Cancer

·         Immuno-Oncology

·         Targeted Therapies in Cancer

·         Onco-Cardiology

·         Pulmonary Complications of Cancer Therapy

·         Applied Biostatistics

Offering the perfect balance of narrative text, summary tables, and clinical photographs (many in full color), there is truly not a more accessible, up-to-date, or authoritative clinician’s guide to the medical management of patients with cancer and its complications than The MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology.

Review:

" As a detailed guide, [MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology] offers practitioners a clear, user-friendly approach to the care of patients with cancer."

"The portions of the text that summarize the chemotherapeutic literature are helpful and potentially useful to a busy medical oncologist. The graphic representations and flow charts are of high quality, are well designed and easy to follow, and are clinically useful. A number of good photographs have been provided that illustrate pathologic conditions...the Manual is well written, has extremely useful graphics, and represents a useful entry point for those interested in the management of malignant diseases."

" ...[MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology]fulfills its goals of helping clinicians quickly evaluate therapeutic regimens and possibilities. Surgeons and radiation oncologists will find the text useful as a reference guide to what the medical oncologist can do and how the medical oncologist views their disciplines. The text is also of considerable help for physicians studying for board certification or recertification in medical oncology. Practicing medical oncologists would do well to have it in their personal libraries."

"Type and Scope of Book: A multiauthored, comprehensive, multidisciplinary text with broad oncology focus and clinical relevance.

Contents: This 43-chapter text contains a concise yet thorough review of medical oncology as practiced at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. Its approach is multidisciplinary and up-to-date. Each chapter contains discussions on epidemiology, screening, diagnosis staging, pathology, natural history, and therapy. The well-referenced, evidence based format is easy to read.

Strengths: This comprehensive text has excellent diagrams, tables, and algorithms. The genetic and molecular biology segments in each chapter are to the point and easy to understand. The concluding chapters on palliative care, pain management, and long-term survivorship are extremely well done.

Deficiencies: A chapter on myelodysplastic syndrome would have been helpful, especially with the increased options for treatment.

Recommended Readership: Fellows, oncologists/hematologists, radiation therapists, and anyone dealing in a multidisciplinary approach to oncology. Also a good library reference.

Overall Grading: ****

"As a detailed guide, [MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology] offers practitioners a clear, user-friendly approach to the care of patients with cancer."
