Resistance to Immunotherapeutic Antibodies in Cancer Book Review:

​​​​The traditional approaches to treat various cancers include chemotherapy, radiation and/or hormonal therapy. While these therapies continue to be effective in large part, they are not selective and highly toxic. There have been encouraging results in alternative therapeutic approach called antibody-mediated anti-cancer therapy, which is less toxic, more selective, and can also reverse drug/radiation resistance. Monoclonal antibodies or mAbs can be used to destroy malignant tumor cells and prevent tumor growth by blocking specific cell receptors. mAbs can bind only to cancer cell-specific antigens and induce an immunological response against the target cancer cell. The book covers the common and unique features of mAbs agains various cancer, gives the latest developments on the molecular, biochemical and genetic mechanisms of resistance by various mAbs, as well as discuss novel mAbs to overcome resistance.

Lewis s Medical Surgical Nursing EBook Book Review:

Lewis's Medical-Surgical Nursing ANZ 5th edition continues as the most comprehensive, go-to reference for developing the core aspects of professional nursing care in Australia and New Zealand. With a clear framework of person-centred care, critical thinking, clinical reasoning and evidence-based practice underpinning the assessment and management of adults with complex, acute and chronic healthcare issues, the 5th edition provides nursing students with the foundations for developing expert clinical practice. Thoroughly revised, the new edition responds to key health priorities, providing an innovative approach to addressing Indigenous health in Australia and New Zealand. Greater emphasis is also given to the issues of: self-care; examination of the nurse's role within an interprofessional team; and management of the deteriorating patient, to reflect the changing nature of nursing practice in the contemporary healthcare environment.

This chapter explores theoretical models of stress, the impact of stress on human functioning, and strategies for coping with stress in the context of nursing practice and healthcare delivery Chapter 5: Working with Indigenous peoples of Australia and New Zealand. Co-authored by highly respected Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics from Australia and New Zealand, the chapter role-models Indigenous and non-Indigenous health professionals working alongside each other to improve health outcomes, and the practical role that nurses can play to improve the healthcare experiences of Indigenous people. Chapter 69: Recognising and responding to the deteriorating patient. Authored by one of Australia's leaders in emergency response education, this chapter is designed to develop capability in relation to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards 2017, specifically Standard 8: Recognising and responding to acute deterioration. Chapter 70: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation: basic and advanced life support. Based on the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR) guidelines, this chapter promotes a problem-solving approach to the management of a patient in cardiac arrest by providing the science behind the techniques and interventions used to treat a patient in cardiac arrest.

Cancer Drug Resistance Book Review:

Leading experts summarize and synthesize the latest discoveries concerning the changes that occur in tumor cells as they develop resistance to anticancer drugs, and suggest new approaches to preventing and overcoming it. The authors review physiological resistance based upon tumor architecture, cellular resistance based on drug transport, epigenetic changes that neutralize or bypass drug cytotoxicity, and genetic changes that alter drug target molecules by decreasing or eliminating drug binding and efficacy. Highlights include new insights into resistance to antiangiogenic therapies, oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in therapeutic resistance, cancer stem cells, and the development of more effective therapies. There are also new findings on tumor immune escape mechanisms, gene amplification in drug resistance, the molecular determinants of multidrug resistance, and resistance to taxanes and Herceptin.

Precision Medicine in Oncology Book Review:

The emerging precision medicine approach aims to tailor disease prevention and treatment to each patient on the basis of individual variability, environmental factors and lifestyle. Fundamental achievements in the last few decades have converged to offer nowadays the compelling opportunity to move towards this innovative approach: i) unprecedented improvements in disease modeling in silico, in vitro and in vivo; ii) acquisition of a wide range of biomedical information combined with the development of computational toolsets for flexible and integrative analyses of multi-assay datasets. Our deeper understanding of oncogenic mechanisms has finally begun to have a crucial impact on clinical decisions at several steps, from cancer prevention and diagnosis to therapeutic intervention. However, precision oncology still encounters several unresolved hurdles including tumour heterogeneity and recurrence as well as unexplained drug resistance and lack of effective ways to monitor response to therapeutic treatments. Notably, limitations in biomedical research regulation and governance represent additional debatable issues that need careful consideration.

Breast Cancer Book Review:

Breast Cancer - From Biology to Medicine thoroughly examines breast cancer from basic definitions, to cellular and molecular biology, to diagnosis and treatment. This book also has some additional focus on preclinical and clinical results in diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. The book begins with introduction on epidemiology and pathophysiology of breast cancer in Section 1. In Section 2, the subsequent chapters introduce molecular and cellular biology of breast cancer with some particular signaling pathways, the gene expression, as well as the gene methylation and genomic imprinting, especially the existence of breast cancer stem cells. In Section 3, some new diagnostic methods and updated therapies from surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy, and some complementary therapies are discussed. This book provides a succinct yet comprehensive overview of breast cancer for advanced students, graduate students, and researchers as well as those working with breast cancer in a clinical setting.

Overcoming Ovarian Cancer Chemoresistance Book Review:

Overcoming Ovarian Cancer Chemoresistance presents non-overlapping review chapters that discuss the state of the field in overcoming chemoresistance of ovarian cancer and treatment options before and following recurrence, considering the genetic makeup of the ovarian cancer patient and her tumor. With the uptake of both germline and somatic gene testing, clinicians can obtain a more comprehensive understanding of ovarian tumors and this book provides information to link the genetic makeup of a tumor (or patient) with the best available treatment. The book discusses topics such as strategies to fight chemo-resistance in ovarian cancer, circulating DNA as a monitor of response, BRCA mutations, ovarian cancer stem cells, immunotherapy and vaccines. Additionally, it brings a list of promising agents at clinical and pre-clinical stage that will impact the treatment in the near future. This book is a valuable source for cancer researchers, oncologists and several members of biomedical field who need to understand how to battle chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. Provides a comprehensive view of both biological and genetic determinants of resistance, as well as technical approaches to monitor response Discusses genetic reversions as a unique alteration and a new field of study Includes a chapter on upcoming and promising agents that are in the pre-clinical and early clinical space, to set the stage for future directions in the field
