Written by clinicians from the National Cancer Institute and other leading institutions, this comprehensive, clear, concise oncology handbook is designed specifically for quick bedside consultation. It covers all malignancies and offers busy clinicians practical guidelines on daily patient management, including commonly used treatment regimens and chemotherapy dosing and schedules. The user-friendly format features tables, charts, bullet points, and algorithms. The thoroughly updated third edition places an increased emphasis on practical clinical information, and includes new chemotherapeutic agents, dosages, and treatment regimens and the latest clinical trials data. New chapters focus on basic genomics for practicing oncologists and basic principles of radiation. The succinct yet detailed presentation is ideal for board review as well as clinical reference.
