  1. Randomized Phase II Cancer Clinical Trials

    By Sin-Ho Jung

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series

    In cancer research, a traditional phase II trial is designed as a single-arm trial that compares the experimental therapy to a historical control. This simple trial design has led to several adverse issues, including increased false positivity of phase II trial results and negative phase III trials...

  2. Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    A Handbook for Hematologists and Oncologists

    By Tariq I. Mughal

    Chronic myeloid leukemia is a clonal disease that results from an acquired genetic change in a single pluripotential hemopoietic stem cell. Efforts to confront this disease have been assisted by advances in cellular and molecular biology and the speed at which these findings have transformed the...

  9. Early Breast Cancer

    From Screening to Multidisciplinary Management, Third Edition

    Edited by John R Benson, Gerald P.H. Gui, Todd Tuttle

    We have entered a new era in breast cancer management where disease is "small" and more likely to be confined to the breast and regional nodes. Some of these tumours will have minimal proclivity for hematogenous dissemination and formation of micrometastases at an early stage in the neoplastic...

  10. Physics of Thermal Therapy

    Fundamentals and Clinical Applications

    Edited by Eduardo Moros

    Series: Imaging in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy

    The field of thermal therapy has been growing tenaciously in the last few decades. The application of heat to living tissues, from mild hyperthermia to high-temperature thermal ablation, has produced a host of well-documented genetic, cellular, and physiological responses that are being researched...
