Since the first edition was published in 1982, Treatment of Cancer has become a standard text for postgraduate physicians in the UK and beyond, providing all information necessary for modern cancer management in one comprehensive but accessible volume. By inviting experts from a number of disciplines to share their knowledge, the editors have succeeded in delivering a truly integrated approach to the care of the patient with cancer. This fifth edition adopts the successful structure of previous editions, whilst being thoroughly revised and updated, and with several completely new chapters, covering important topics such as drug development, cancer prevention, and economics of cancer care, as well as treatments such as radioimmunotherapy, biological therapies and antibody therapy. Part One considers the scientific basis and fundamental principles underlying cancer treatment and examines the likely developments that will occur over the next decade at the leading edge of oncology. Part Two is divided into two sections; the first covering general issues of cancer management, including planning techniques, concomitent chemoradiotherapy, surgical oncology and palliative care; and the second using a system-based approach to cover the clinical aspects and management plans for the whole spectrum of malignant disease. Treatment of Cancer surpasses other oncology texts in condensing the essential information for exemplary cancer care into one readable and accessible guide, and will be an invaluable addition to the bookshelves of the busy oncologist in training or in practice.

Founded on the paradox that all things are poisons and the difference between poison and remedy is quantity, the determination of safe dosage forms the base and focus of modern toxicology. In order to make a sound determination there must be a working knowledge of the biologic mechanisms involved and of the methods employed to define these mechanisms. While the vastness of the field and the rapid accumulation of data may preclude the possibility of absorbing and retaining more than a fraction of the available information, a solid understanding of the underlying principles is essential. Extensively revised and updated with four new chapters and an expanded glossary, this fifth edition of the classic text, Principles and Methods of Toxicology provides comprehensive coverage in a manageable and accessible format. New topics include 'toxicopanomics', plant and animal poisons, information resources, and non-animal testing alternatives. Emphasizing the cornerstones of toxicology-people differ, dose matters, and things change, the book begins with a review of the history of toxicology and followed by an explanation of basic toxicological principles, agents that cause toxicity, target organ toxicity, and toxicological testing methods including many of the test protocols required to meet regulatory needs worldwide. The book examines each method or procedure from the standpoint of technique and interpretation of data and discusses problems and pitfalls that may be associated with each. The addition of several new authors allow for a broader and more diverse treatment of the ever-changing and expanding field of toxicology. Maintaining the high-quality information and organizational framework that made the previous editions so successful, Principles and Methods of Toxicology, Fifth Edition continues to be a valuable resource for the advanced practitioner as well as the new disciple of toxicology.

Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.
