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 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.

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 Neoplasia Management Book Review:

This book provides the most recent update on the management of neuroendocrine neoplasia (NEN), a term covering all tumors of various organs and/or with a particular histology, including MEN (multiple endocrine neoplasia) related tumors, MiNEN (mixed neuroendocrine-non-neuroendocrine neoplasms), NEC (neuroendocrine carcinoma) and Merkel’s carcinoma. NENs are heterogeneous in their biology, clinical presentation and prognosis, showing a great variability in aggressiveness and therapy response. As a result, their treatment is based on a large spectrum of options. The standard therapies are surgery in early disease, various loco-regional procedures in certain conditions and mostly of a palliative nature in metastatic disease. At present, thanks to our increased understanding of molecular signaling pathways, several pharmacological approaches can be used in patients with advanced NENs. Somatostatin analogs display both anti-tumor effects and symptom control. Novel peptide-radio-receptor treatment (PRRT) is used in patients with well differentiated tumors. The agents targeting angiogenesis and/or PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway, alone or in combination with analogues, have provided encouraging results in advanced disease. The first part of the book focuses on the history, epidemiology and the most relevant scientific achievements, covering the discoveries in genetic and molecular biology, the endoscopic techniques with guided biopsy, and the metabolic imaging with hybrid PET/CT and MRI/CT. It particularly highlights the emerging strategies in therapy, surgery and mini-invasive surgery as well as loco-regional and systemic treatments, including targeted therapy and/or biological therapies. The second part then explores the management of NENs of various anatomical origins and/or with peculiar biology. It describes the range of the current options and the most relevant results from the clinical trials. This informative book provides valuable insights for all those interested in the management of neuroendocrine neoplasia.

Neuroendocrine Tumors Book Review:

This book is a comprehensive, state-of-the art, definitive reference for the surgical management of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs). It provides a practical, clinically useful guide that prioritizes the diagnostic work-up, indications for surgery, surgical principles, and perioperative care of patients with NETs in the context of multi-disciplinary care. Most textbooks on NETs have traditionally focused on patients with advanced disease, highlighting systemic therapies and emerging treatment options. In contrast, this book provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the surgical management of NETs and serves as an invaluable resource for physicians, fellows, and residents who treat this difficult disease by providing helpful guidelines and up-to-date information on clinical management. Written by experts in the field, Neuroendocrine Tumors includes the most up-to-date clinical information from national and international leaders in their respective disciplines. It not only serves as an invaluable resource for many as they seek to provide the best possible surgical and multidisciplinary cancer care, but also an opportunity to identify new avenues of scientific discovery that may lead to significant advances in the diagnosis and management of NETs.

Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Book Review:

This book provides a broad overview of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms, focusing on the most important developments in the technologies used to diagnose, classify and treat them. After a historical and epidemiological overview, the opening chapters examine the various diagnostic approaches (radiology, nuclear medicine, endocrinology, cytology and immunohistochemistry) and discuss the WHO classification. The functioning and nonfunctioning tumor types are then fully discussed, covering epidemiology, diagnosis, morphology and prognosis of each entity. Careful consideration is given to the molecular features that have contributed in understanding the pathogenesis of such neoplasms and may have potential implications for the diagnostic and therapeutic pathways. The final chapters consider the surgical and medical approaches to therapy, providing a practical and analytical overview of the available options. The book is written by a multidisciplinary team of worldwide-recognized experts and is addressed to radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, endocrinologists, pathologists, surgeons and oncologists.
