Where do you start to seem for a up to date, authoritative article at the analysis or administration of a specific malignancy? The few basic oncology textbooks are typically old-fashioned. unmarried papers in really good journals are informative yet seldom accomplished; those are extra usually initial experiences on a really restricted variety of sufferers. definite basic journals often submit stable in-depth reports of melanoma themes, and released symposium lectures are frequently the easiest overviews on hand. Unfor­ tunately, those stories and supplementations seem sporadically, and the reader can by no means determine whilst a subject of specified curiosity should be lined. melanoma remedy and study is a sequence of authoritative volumes that goal to fulfill this want. it really is an try and determine a severe mass of oncology literature overlaying almost all oncology issues, revised often to maintain the insurance modern, simply to be had on a unmarried library shelf or by way of a unmarried own subscription. we now have approached the matter within the following type: first, through dividing the oncology literature into particular subdivisions resembling lung can­ cer, genitourinary melanoma, and pediatric oncology; moment, through asking emi­ nent specialists in every one of those parts to edit a quantity at the particular subject on an annual or biannual foundation. every one subject and tumor sort is roofed in a quantity showing often and predictably, discussing present prognosis, staging, markers, all types of therapy modalities, uncomplicated biology, and more.
