* An invaluable resource that includes critical, in-depth insights into recent developments in neuro-oncology
* A fresh perspective on molecular biology, immunology, and other clinical aspects of tumors of the nervous system
* Extensive coverage of tumor management and new therapeutic strategies, including gene therapy and molecularly targeted treatments
* New tactics and therapies that will aid clinicians in their quest to provide optimal care for their neuro-oncological patients
This volume highlights recent developments in neuro-oncology that are not only increasing the survival rate of patients, but also improving their quality of life. Through an in-depth exploration of new therapies, including advanced diagnostic tools and a fresh perspective on molecular biology, immunology, and the clinical aspects of tumors, clinicians will gain a critical understanding of emerging therapies and techniques. Extensive coverage of tumor management and new therapeutic strategies, including gene therapy and molecularly targeted treatments are also explored, providing clinicians with new tools and tactics they can use to treat tumors of the nervous system.
Clinicians will find this handbook to be an invaluable resource for summarizing the present state of scientific and clinical knowledge in the field of neuro-oncology. In addition, practitioners in the field will uncover new tactics and therapies that will aid them in providing optimal neuro-oncological care for their patients.
