Description

This is a timely compilation of new concepts in the molecular pathogenesis and molecular therapy of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). The focus is on selected critical molecular determinants of AML pathogenesis and pathophysiology and the exploitation of these factors by diverse therapeutic agents and modalities. There is an emphasis throughout on the bidirectional flow of knowledge between the clinical and laboratory arenas.show more

Karp, MD, of Johns Hopkins University, is a multiauthored textbook directed towards the hematologist managing acute leukemia ... . It focuses on new approaches, both practical and theoretical, based on laboratory data as well as clinical studies. ... This textbook includes up-to-date, well-referenced chapters ... . It is a welcomed edition to provide specific information and reference data for hematologists who specialize in AML management." (Barry Cooper, Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings, Vol. 21 (1), 2008) "The book begins with an overview of the disease and ends with a chapter on some of the particular challenges faced by clinicians ... . For clinicians involved in investigation of new agents, there is considerable usefulness ... . In Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, the reader will find reviews of some of the newer agents and treatment strategies for this uncommon but devastating disease. In addition, this is a reliable source for thorough and clearly written explanations of the scientific development of these new agents." (Laura C.
