Principles of Tumors: A Translational Approach to Foundations 2nd Edition

by Leon P. Bignold

Principles of Tumors: A Translational Approach to Foundations, Second Edition, provides a concise summary of translational/interdisciplinary topics on the various aspects of tumors, especially abnormalities in their cells, their causes and effects on patients. Topics discussed include how genomic abnormalities in tumors may result from the actions of carcinogens and how genomic changes determine the cell biological/morphological abnormalities in tumor cell populations. In addition, the relationships between tumor cell genomics and therapeutic outcomes are described. There are also supporting appendices on general bioscience, including the principles of histology (the cells and tissues of the body), genetics, pathology, radiology and pharmacology. This book gives a thorough, detailed, yet concise account of the main bioscience, clinical and therapeutic aspects of tumors. It emphasizes the translational aspects of research into tumors with extensive discussions of interdisciplinary issues. The content in this book will be invaluable for researchers and clinicians involved in collaborative projects where it is necessary to understand fundamental issues in other branches of biomedicine.

  • Presents content that has been totally updated with the most recent developments of the field, including new chapters on tumor imaging exams, new surgical techniques, immunotherapy, gene therapy, and several novel therapies using natural and synthetic compounds
  • Presents translational approaches for every topic to improve conceptual insights for new research projects
  • Covers a broad range of subjects, making it easier for the reader to understand related fields
  • Includes diagrams for complex topics to aid in understanding for non-specialists

Head and Neck Cancer: Psychological and Psychosocial Effects

by Christopher E. Fundakowski

This volume serves to help readers understand and address factors that contribute to the psychological distress and negative self-perception of patients with head and neck cancer to improve their quality of life. It explores many of these issues in depth, such as the trends in diagnosis of head and neck cancer, disfigurement, advances and outcomes associated with minimally invasive surgery, long-term quality of life and functional outcomes, issues related to cancer pain, importance and impact of nutrition, how reconstructive advances effect functional outcomes, the impact of cancer recurrence, and financial consequences of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Head and Neck Cancer: Psychological and Psychosocial Effects will help otolaryngologists, oncologists, surgeons, psychologists and healthcare professionals define the unique issues associated with the HNC patient population, discuss pertinent data, outline key aspects of high quality care in this population, and to draw attention to necessary future investigations and developments.
