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 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.

Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention Book Review:

"The definitive reference for budding and experienced cancer epidemiologists alike." -American Journal of Epidemiology "Practitioners in epidemiology and oncology will find immense value in this." -JAMA Since its initial publication in 1982, CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY AND PREVENTION has served as the premier reference work for students and professionals working to understand the causes and prevention of cancer in humans. Now revised for the first time in more than a decade, this fourth edition provides a comprehensive summary of the global patterns of cancer incidence and mortality, current understanding of the major causal determinants, and a rationale for preventive interventions. Special attention is paid to molecular epidemiologic approaches that address the wider role of genetic predisposition and gene-environment interactions in cancer etiology and pathogenesis. New and timely chapters on environmental and social-epidemiologic factors include: · The role of social class disparities · The role of obesity and physical inactivity · The potential effects of electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation · The principles of cancer chemoprevention For both seasoned professionals and newer generations of students and researchers, this fourth edition of CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY AND PREVENTION remains the authority in the field -- a work of distinction that every lab, library, student, professional, or researcher should have close at hand.
