About the Authors
  • Due to major advances in understanding the biology and pathogenesis of the disease, the management of multiple myeloma is changing rapidly. New diagnostic and prognostic criteria have been introduced, and treatment options are multiplying with high-dose chemotherapy regimens, stem cell transplants, and the development of novel agents and immune-based strategies that target tumor cells directly. This book is aimed at the practitioner who is looking to put these advances into clinical context. It will serve as an up-to-date resource for treatment of myeloma and related disorders. Chapters are written by international authorities and contain color photos, diagrams, and algorithms outlining preferred treatment strategies. Relevant scientific information is integrated throughout, but the focus here is on providing practical therapeutic guidance for oncologists and hematologists caring for myeloma patients. The book covers all myeloma subtypes and related disorders, including amyloidosis, Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, plasmacytoma, MGUS, and POEMS syndrome.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book covers all aspects of the management of myeloma such as induction therapy, salvage therapy, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and treatment of various complications. The information is delivered succinctly, in an easy-to-read manner....Overall, this is a readable, useful book, and unlike most books in this field, a small and light one."
