In many ways, the field of lung cancer research is leading the way in personalized oncologic care, with numerous new treatment strategies moving from clinical trials to standard clinical practice within the past 10 years; and, there are no indications of bench-to-bedside innovations slowing down. Handbook of Thoracic Oncology is a practical guide to the multidisciplinary management of patients with lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies. The content highlights the applications of both conventional and novel treatment strategies to the care of real-life patients with lung cancer. Unlike many oncology textbooks that exhaustively list studies of historical or failed approaches, this handbook focuses on the application of practical, current management options to specific patient subsets and the data that specifically support these strategies. The format is open and readable with bulleted points presenting overall treatment guidelines as well as more nuanced applications of these treatments to individual patient groups. The clear focus of this book is on the question that all oncologists ask themselves every day, “How do I take care of this person sitting in front of me?” This handbook is an indispensable guide for all oncologists and practitioners who regularly care for lung cancer patients and those suffering from mesothelioma, thymic tumors, and pulmonary neuro-endocrine tumors. Features: Delivers the need-to-know points of lung cancer screening, diagnosis and staging, and appropriate multidisciplinary management for all major thoracic malignancies Provides clinical pearls and treatment recommendations for patients who don’t ‘fit’ the standard guidelines Includes specific coverage on Management of Elderly and High-Risk Patients Prepares physicians to notice and eliminate common errors in clinical practice when managing patients with lung cancer and other thoracic tumors

This evidence-based guide on the use of radiotherapy in patients with common malignancies of the lung, esophagus, and thymus will help radiation oncologists to deliver optimal care within a multidisciplinary setting. Detailed information is provided on all aspects, from delineation of tumor volumes and organs at risk based on four-dimensional CT simulation through to the various advanced radiotherapy techniques, including stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), tomotherapy, volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), and proton therapy. Contouring, treatment planning, and treatment delivery are documented in a range of everyday cases, with illustrations of slice-by-slice delineations on planning CT images and finalized treatment plans based on detailed acceptance criteria. Numerous practical tips are highlighted, and relevant information is included on surgical techniques and systemic therapies. The book will facilitate decision making in the management of patients with common thoracic malignancies and assist in overcoming the challenges encountered in daily clinical practice.

Biological Organization at the Cellular and Supercellular Level provides information on some of the most intriguing problems of cell biology. This book discusses the models for gene function as well as the simple mechanisms found in bacteria. Organized into 14 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the model for the regulation of DNA replication. This text then examines the specific properties of an organism, which arise from its catalytic constitution. Other chapters consider the experiments to test whether enzyme induction is accompanied by an increase in the rate of synthesis of the specific messenger RNA corresponding to the structural gene that controls the induced enzyme. This book discusses as well the comparison of the properties of the two types of CO2-sensitive flies, namely, the non-stabilized and the stabilized. The final chapter deals with the morphological or structural aspects of biological organization. This book is a valuable resource for geneticists, embryologists, and cancerologists.
