The lifestyles and socio-economic status that are prevalent in regions of the world with limited resources form the background for the unique features of neoplastic diseases in these areas, where the majority of the world population lives. The predominance of the world's retroviral burden of in these areas further compounds the nature and challenges of the cancer there. Much of the international cancer literature covers the nature and challenges of the disease as seen in high-income regions of the world, thereby giving a skewed view of the global cancer challenges. As the low- and middle-income regions of the world transition from communicable to non communicable disease patterns, there is a need for a corresponding paradigm shift, with increased emphasis on what the world needs to know about non communicable diseases, including cancer, where the disease is hitherto poorly documented. The main goal of the proposed book is to contribute to this outcomes.

This atlas is a detailed guide to the imaging appearances of gliomas following treatment with neurosurgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Normal and pathological findings are displayed in detailed MR images that illustrate the potential modifications due to treatment. Particular emphasis is placed on characteristic appearances on the newer functional MR imaging techniques, including MR spectroscopy, diffusion-weighted imaging, and perfusion imaging. These techniques are revolutionizing neuroradiology by going beyond the demonstration of macroscopic alterations to the depiction of preceding metabolic changes at the cellular and subcellular level, thereby allowing earlier and more specific diagnosis. A key section comprising some 40 clinical cases and more than 500 illustrations offers an invaluable clinical and research tool not only for neuroradiologists but also for neurosurgeons, radiotherapists, and medical oncologists.
The incidence of primary and metastatic liver tumors is rising and the therapeutic armamentarium for these tumors is expanding at a rapid pace. Surgery remains the primary treatment modality for these tumors. With improvements in our perioperative management and operative techniques a larger proportion of patients are able to undergo potentially curative liver surgery. In addition, indications and criteria for liver transplantation for both primary and metastatic liver tumors are constantly expanding. Unfortunately, many patients are not amendable to surgical resection or liver transplantation and therefore alternative liver-directed therapies are routinely being implemented as part of complex multidisciplinary treatment models. However, these models are continually evolving as these regional therapeutic options continue to expand. New embolization agents and techniques, as well as, improvements in radiation delivery, are all evolving in the background of improvement in systemic and targeted therapy options for these tumors. This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the current state of liver-directed therapy for malignant liver tumors. The book will serve as a valuable resource for not only surgeons and clinicians but for researchers with an interest in malignant liver tumors. The book focuses on the therapeutic approach to primary and metastatic tumors providing an up-to-date review on surgical liver anatomy and new imaging techniques as well as patient selection and technical consideration for resection and transplantation. In addition, the book provides new insight into novel and evolving therapies in the areas of transarterial therapy such as: (i) bland embolization, (ii) chemoembolization, and (iii) radioembolization; as well as new radiation techniques including SBRT and proton therapy. Furthermore, the expanding role of hepatic artery infusion therapy in primary malignant tumors is highlighted. Finally, integration of all these regional therapy options with upcoming and evolving systemic and targeted therapy regimens are integrated and discussed. This book will serve as a very useful resource for clinicians and researchers managing and treating patients with these challenging malignancies. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.
The book presents current progress in clinical practice and research, particularly involving pulmonary diseases. Chapters tackle a variety of topics including a search for potential biomarkers of lung tumors, sleep disordered breathing, neurogenic lung dysfunction, community acquired and nosocomial respiratory infections developing in the chronically ill, mechanisms of hypoxia sensing, and the reasons for frequent visits to primary care facilities causing an ever increasing costs for caregivers and society. Identifying molecular markers expressed in tumors, rather than histological stratification of cancer type, forms a rapidly evolving basis of precision medicine, with the hope of a future development of targeted treatment. Creative ideas drive basic research that spurs innovations that, in turn, when translated into clinical applications, lay the foundation of breakthroughs, hopefully leading to increased longevity and better quality of life. This book is intended for healthcare professionals, particularly pulmonologists, primary care physicians, and other specialists involved in the management of patients.
From the Introduction: "Precision oncology offers a hugely exciting opportunity to personalise cancer treatments and prevention for the benefit of the individual but does present great challenges at present, both scientific and ethical."We now have the capacity to identify the abnormalities in genes and proteins that introduce the risk of individuals developing cancer and are responsible for the classical behaviour of a cancer. Having done this, healthcare teams are able to better diagnose cancer, evolve preventive strategies, and develop and deploy targeted cancer therapies. Precision oncology involves better prevention strategies and ensuring that therapeutic interventions can be concentrated on those who will benefit, reducing expense and sparing side effects for those who will not. This new educational resource provides an overview of the latest progress in developing precision oncology, plus a ground breaking collection of case studies ("Problems") showing precision oncology in practice.It includes a clear, readable summary of developments, alongside real-life case studies, providing a valuable update for all involved in the oncology community.The editors lead research and clinical teams at four UK centres of excellence in the field.
