Description

A review of current information on the effects of age on tolerance of antineoplastic treatment, this book looks at the management of common malignancies, and examines the influence of age on treatment choice. Information on patients, disease and treatment has been prefaced by a chapter devoted to decision analysis which, the authors feel, is invaluable in the planning of the most favourable course of action in complex clinical situations, such as those involving elderly cancer patients.
