Description

In this second edition of their critically acclaimed book, Ronald Bukowski, Robert Motzer, and Robert Figlin have thoroughly updated and expanded their survey of clinical, biological and pathological management of localized and advanced renal cell carcinoma. A panel of internationally renowned contributors explores the latest developments in molecular genetics, focusing on the novel targets that have been discovered in epithelial renal tumors. The discussion includes the specific biology of selected target molecules or receptors and the various agents that inhibit these targets, including full chapters devoted to drugs that selectively inhibit receptor tyrosine kinases, such as sunitinib and axitinib.Further attention is paid to leading-edge strategies that target and inhibit tumor associated angiogenesis and block the vascular endothelial growth factor pathway. Comprehensive and authoritative, "Renal Cell Carcinoma: Molecular Targets and Clinical Applications, Second Edition" is the definitive text on the rapidly evolving landscape of experimental therapeutics, written and edited by the pioneers of the field.show more

Review quote

From the reviews of the second edition: "Chapters in this book are written by an authoritative group of contributors who are well known for their translational and clinical work in kidney cancer. ... The primary audience includes individuals on the cusp of translational ... in kidney cancer. ... for most practicing medical oncologists, the book provides essential data upon which their daily clinical decisions are based when caring for patients afflicted with kidney cancer. ... The strength of this book lies in ... its sharp insights into a rapidly evolving field." (Robert G Uzzo, Doody's Review Service, June, 2009)show more
