“Given the significant and rapid advances in the field of oncology, especially in targeted therapy and immuno-oncology, this new and revised edition of this pocket guide is justified.
This handy pocket book that literally fits in a lab coat pocket yet covers a wide range of topics, from cancer biology, prevention, and screening to treatment and care for multiple indications in hematology/oncology, is intended as a concise reference for clinicians. The main emphasis is on providing information at the fingertips that general providers and those in training will find useful.
This handy book is well suited for medical oncologists and trainees, and more broadly, anyone interested in gleaning concise information on the subject.
This easy-to-use, loose-leaf pocket guide is well conceived and very well organized so that in two small pages, it presents all the information there is to learn about the practical aspects of a given oncology indication. It is divided into 28 thematic sections that cover the breadth of hematology and oncology, which are further subdivided into 144 two-page spreads on each topic.
Major revisions include chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, immunotherapy toxicity, novel oral anticoagulants, etc. Where appropriate, illustrations and tables are used to make topics easier to understand. Finally, a section with clinically essential color photos and appendixes makes this handy pocket edition a well-rounded companion.
Written and edited by leading oncology experts, this is an outstanding resource with literally no competition. A must-have for every hematology/oncology clinician and trainee.”
