Neuroendocrine Tumors A Multidisciplinary Approach Book Review:

The term ‘carcinoid’ entered medical literature over 100 years ago to describe a peculiar intestinal epithelial neoplasm. Since then, a large body of literature has expanded the concept of carcinoid, later replaced by the term ‘NeuroEndocrine Tumor’ (NET), defining a wide spectrum of peculiar tumors, potentially affecting all organs and tissues, originating from neuroendocrine cells, sharing, but, at the same time, keeping, pathognomonic pathological, radiological and clinical features. This book provides an authoritative overview of the epidemiological, clinical, genetic, molecular and pathological characteristics of NETs and highlights the most relevant controversial issues in the classification, diagnosis and therapy. Furthermore the new frontiers in the field of medical therapies are presented, through a multidisciplinary and translational approach. Considering the fact that NETs have been recently demonstrated less rare as considered so far, 'Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Multidisciplinary Approach' is a must read for endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, endocrine surgeons, as well as pathologists, nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists focused on NET.

Neuroendocrine Tumors Book Review:

New research has shown that neuroendocrine tumors are more common than previously thought. Progress in our understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of these not-so-rare cancers has resulted in renewed interest in developing innovative therapeutic options. In particular, novel molecular targeted agents have been shown to have significant anti-tumor activity, and integration of these therapies has led to critical advances in management. In this volume, an outstanding group of the world’s leaders in the field have assembled to convey their knowledge of the epidemiology, biology, and management of all the major types of neuroendocrine tumors. The book takes a multi-modality approach to understanding disease processes and therapeutics, including chapters on medical and surgical treatment as well as a chapter devoted to imaging. Throughout, the authors emphasize recent advances in our understanding of molecular biology and the subsequent emerging therapeutic options.

Neuroendocrine Tumors in Real Life Book Review:

This book on neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) aims to present, in a clear and innovative manner, a broad topic that is still unevenly and in some respects poorly delineated. The novel feature is the nature of the focus on the principles of prognosis, diagnosis, and therapy, which are outlined on the basis of well-defined clinical scenarios described with the aid of high-quality images and illustrations. The salient observations to emerge from the reported clinical cases are clearly summarized, taking into account evidence from the literature and the available guidelines. All of the significant prognostic factors – histopathological, molecular, and imaging – and current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for the major NETs (stomach, pancreas, ileum, appendix, bronchus) are covered. In addition, in the introductory part of the book the reader will find information on basic aspects including epidemiology, classification, and underlying biological mechanisms. Neuroendocrine Tumors in Real Life will be of interest to all specialists involved in the management of NETs; it will provide the experienced with important updates and equip trainees and students with a firm understanding of key concepts.
