Clinical Malignant Hematology
By Sekeres, Mikkael A., Kalacyio, Matt, and Bolwell, Brian

The only comprehensive guide to the clinical management of hematologic and lymphatic cancers

"This will be an ideal and a must-have book for anyone involved in the daily care of patients with hematologic malignancies. It would be particularly useful for physicians-in-training trying to make sense of the ever more complicated treatment plans for these patients....This is a unique book that provides easily accessible information that would be useful to almost any practicing oncologist or hematologist."--Doody's Review Service

Filling an unmet need in the clinical literature, this commanding, just-in-time reference sheds light on the full spectrum of cancers in the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic system (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma). Clinical Malignant Hematology is edited by staff members from the renowned Taussig Cancer Center at the Cleveland Clinic, which has pioneered some of the most important clinical discoveries and treatment trends in recent years.

Look inside and you'll see a consistent, unified patient management strategy in each chapter, as well as a streamlined three-section format that expertly examines ontogeny and physiology of blood cells, myeloid neoplasia, and lymphoid neoplasia. You'll also find never-before-published perspectives and precise recommendations for dosing and other critical areas that reflect the latest scholarship of this increasingly vital field.
