Description
An established and highly regarded introduction to paediatric oncology.
This new edition brings together an international group of highly respected editors and contributors to provide evidence-based information on how to investigate and treat the common cancers in childhood. State-of-the-art descriptions of what is basic and essential for management is included; there are new chapters on clinical trials, evidence based practice, the treatment of cancer in less well-resourced countries, stem cell and immunotherapy, other malignant / borderline haematological conditions (myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative disorders), and on imaging. These all reflect important changes in the focus of the speciality in recent years.

Aimed at pediatric oncologists, and trainees in oncology and paediatrics, this leading text will also appeal to paediatric nurses, cancer nurses, and paramedical paediatric staff.
