This book comprises an in-depth view on the current knowledge of chronic clonal myeloid diseases. Special emphasis is laid on chronic myeloid leukaemia and ‚classic’ myeloproliferative disorders (essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis) as well as myelodysplastic syndromes, oligoblastic leukemias, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and overlap diseases. Both young physicians in hematological training as well... more...

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of critical care of
the pediatric immunocompromised hematology-oncology patient. The
text focuses on unique aspects of the pediatric immunocompromised
patient that predisposes the child to significant illness, and
presents critical care management strategies specific to the
patient population. In addition to chapters on oncology, primary
immune deficiency, immunocompromised hematology, and... more...
The use of Epo in medical practice is increasing constantly. It has
revolutionized how we think of blood transfusion in medicine and
surgery. Moreover, it has become widely known to scientists,
physicians, biotech and pharmaceutical executives and the general
public. Additionally, the past ten years have seen important
advances in our knowledge and understanding of its action both
within and outside of the hematopoietic system.
Until now, there has... more...
As haemophilia is a life-long condition, continuing supervision by
a group of medical personnel is required. In many countries this is
provided by comprehensive care haemophilia centres where staff of
all specialities concerned with treatment- haematologists,
paediatricians, nurses, physiotherapists, orthopaedic surgeons -
have specialized knowledge.
This new book is a definitive resource on the current aspects and
issues around haemophilia.... more...
...includes new information on molecular biology, bone marrow stem
cell transplantation, markers for thrombosis, and new learning aids
including chapter objectives, more case studies, color plates,
chapter review questions, etc.
Emerging technologies in target identification, drug discovery,

The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present.
The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with
the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act
anew. Abraham Lincoln, 1862 When I came across this quote, it made
me recall my first participation at an international meeting on
bone marrow transplantation, at a time when this was the only term
that was used to describe the field. During a particular... more...
This is a timely compilation of new concepts in the molecular
pathogenesis and molecular therapy of acute myelogenous leukemia
(AML). The focus is on selected critical molecular determinants
of AML pathogenesis and pathophysiology and the exploitation of
these factors by diverse therapeutic agents and modalities. There
is an emphasis throughout on the bidirectional flow of knowledge
between the clinical and laboratory arenas.
Pulmonary embolism is a common but vexing illness. This book
provides a contemporary overview of the most important issues from
a Western and a Japanese perspective, providing the reader with
state-of-the-art knowledge of the epidemiology and molecular
biology of the disease. In the Diagnosis section, the relationship
between venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism is explored, and
exciting new findings are presented in the fields of
