About this book

Introduction

Renal Cell Cancer: Diagnosis and Therapy covers diagnostics, cancer research, molecular biology, immunology and clinical management. It provides an overview of new information in epidemiology, molecular and immunologic characteristics, and surgical therapy.

The state-of-the-art reference work covering renal cell cancer in its full extent currently on the market, it presents every aspect on the topic, new data and techniques, with a special focus on the latest diagnostic tests, genetic counselling, surgery - including laparoscopy and minimally invasive therapies. Special topics are included, such as advanced disease, special situations, pain management, palliative care and follow-up. A significant part of the book deals with immunotherapy and the exciting new developments in molecular targeted therapy, including angiogenesis inhibitors, tyrosine kinase inhibitors and mTOR inhibitors, for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma.

Renal Cell Cancer: Diagnosis and Therapy is the reference work of choice on this topic for urologists and oncologists.
