This is the second edition of a well-received compendium of information and guidance on the diagnosis and management of the various oncological diseases that are encountered in children and adolescents. For each disease entity, fundamental facts are provided that will be relevant for a range of professionals – hospital physicians, specialist nurses, psycho-oncologists, physiotherapists, family doctors, and pediatricians. Compared with the first... 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.
Circulation of blood is vital for the survival of vertebrates,
including man. Mainly, it plays an important role in carrying food
nutrients and oxygen to every tissue and organ and in removing all
waste products and carbon dioxide. Any imbalance in the hemostatic
and cardiovascular systems can lead to death and severe debility. A
number of animals have developed mechanisms to target these systems
and exploit the vulnerability. In some species (for... more...

This book is written by experts in the field of hematopoietic
stem cell biology and lymphocyte development in order to overview
recent advances in the field. Prospective isolation of various
progenitors and stem cells enables us to understand self-renewal
mechanisms of stem cells as well as regulation of hematopoiesis.
Furthermore, the importance of extrinsic factors has been
emphasized recently. This volume concisely describes our... 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...
Emerging technologies in target identification, drug discovery,
