Summary : This book describes the molecular mechanisms of lung cancer development and progression that determine therapeutic interventions in the era of genomics, when the rapid evolution in lung cancer diagnosis and treatment necessitates critical review of new results to integrate advances into practice. The text opens with background and emerging information regarding the molecular biology of lung cancer pathogenesis. Updated results regarding lung cancer prevention and screening are discussed, followed by chapters on diagnostic techniques and pathological evaluation. This leads on to a detailed presentation of treatment modalities, from surgery and radiation therapy to standard chemotherapy and targeted agents. The coverage includes resistance to therapy and the emergence of immunotherapy for lung cancer; in addition, the current evidence in respect of small cell lung cancer is summarized. The book presents insights from experts across disciplines to emphasize the importance of collaborative care. Advances in our understanding of issues in geriatric oncology and palliative care complete the comprehensive discussion of lung cancer.

Summary : Among the deadliest type of cancers, lung cancer faces several challenges in diagnosis and treatment: late diagnosis and misdiagnosis, inadequate tumor sampling, and resistance development to current therapies, among others. Together with advances in the understanding of molecular features, factors, and mechanisms involved in initiation and tumor progression, important improvements have occurred in diagnostics and therapeutics in the shape of advances in molecular genotyping, procedures for sampling, new potential, and less invasive sources of samples for the diagnosis and development of new targeted therapies. The aim of this book is to provide an exciting read on strategies in the diagnosis and therapy of lung cancer.

Summary : Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, but IGRT (image guided radiation therapy) offers the possibility of more aggressive and enhanced treatments. The only available source on the subject that emphasizes new imaging techniques, and provides step-by-step treatment guidelines for lung cancer, this source helps clinicians locate and target tumors with enhanced speed, improve the accuracy of radiation delivery, and correctly target cancerous masses while avoiding surrounding structures. Edited by radiation oncology experts from the renowned M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, this guide: focuses on novel approaches using IGRT, particularly PET/CT, SPECT, 4-D CT, stereotactic body radiation therapy, IMRT and proton radiotherapy, and offers expert guidance on the dose, fractionation, target volume delineation (including recommended margins with and without respiratory gating based on our new 4-D CT study), and normal tissue tolerances stands as the first step-by-step guide for radiation oncologists to implement new image-guided techniques into their day-to-day clinical practice, and considers the practical issues of implementing these approaches into their routine helps clinicians use imaging technologies to detect changes in tumor size, shape, position, or metabolism over a course of radiotherapy treatment provides disease stage-specific treatment guidelines and clearly lays out imaging techniques serves as roadmap for future research and development

Summary : Under the auspices of the 12th International Symposium on Special Aspects in Radiotherapy 2008 in Berlin, acknowledged experts presented their perspectives on small and non-small cell lung cancer, reflecting the latest standards and engaging in controversies in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease.In the first part of this volume, aspects of the diagnostic workup are highlighted from the histopathologist's point of view, followed by presentations concerning the value of PET-CT and whole-body MRI in the staging of lung cancer. The use and current methods in bronchoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, video-endoscopy and mediastinoscopy are discussed in detail. The second section presents surgical and radio-oncological treatment concepts for stage I/II non-small cell lung cancer including stereotactic radiotherapy. The third section outlines the curative options for stage III NSCLC: extended surgical approaches , definitive radiochemotherapy and current concepts in adjuvant therapies. Emphasis is also placed on altered fractionation schemes in radiotherapy. Section 4 is dedicated to palliative procedures and the last section gives an in-depth presentation of small cell lung cancer.This book provides an excellent overview of up-to-date standards and future strategies in lung cancer treatment. It will be of great value to surgeons, radiation oncologists, pulmonary specialists and other clinicians interested in this disease.

Summary : Advances in CT have enabled us to detect small lung cancers, which has changed the lung cancer surgery from lobectomy to a lesser lobar resection such as a segmentectomy or wedge resection. While wedge resection is a simple procedure, it has a higher risk of local recurrence of cancer than a lobectomy. On the other hand, segmentectomy is a well known curative surgery for small lung cancers. However, it is difficult to perform accurately because of its anatomical complexity, which makes surgeons hesitant to use it. The book “Illustrated Anatomical Segmentectomy for Lung Cancer” provides readers a detailed explanation of segmentectomy with numerous easy-to-understand color illustrations showing the precise segmental anatomies for each pattern of the procedure. To better illustrate an accurate anatomical segmentectomy, the text shows details of anatomy during segmentectomy. This can involve up to 25 patterns, each of which is shown in roughly 10 illustrations.

Summary : Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality in Western countries. It also provides an archetypal example of how inherited predisposing genetic variants may interact with an environmental influence (smoking) to modulate individual cancer risk. The Molecular Genetics of Lung Cancer describes how the new techniques, methods and approaches of molecular genetics are being used to unravel the complexities of the mechanisms underlying lung tumorigenesis by analysis at the DNA, RNA and protein levels with potentially important implications for tumour classification, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment as well as providing new insights into how lung tumours arise and how they progress to malignancy.

Summary : Lung Cancer is the most common cause of cancer death and cancer symptoms. The ABC of Lung Cancer is a much needed reference for those treating and caring for patients with lung cancer such as primary care doctors, specialist cancer nurses, junior doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, radiographers and other health care professionals. This new title in the ABC series covers the epidemiology and diagnosis of lung cancer, focusing particularly on primary care issues such as what symptoms require urgent investigation, and when to refer to a specialist. This is a practical guide for all those involved in the care of the lung cancer patient, as well as patients and their families and carers.

Summary : The measurement of serum levels of etoposide using high performance liquid chromatography was investigated in patients with small cell carcinoma of the lung. 19 patients were treated with two cycles of etoposide (600 mg/m2 daily) on three days as a six hour infusion, 2 patients were received modified schedule with the same dose given as a continuous 72 hour infusion during the second cycle. Peak levels of etoposide ranged between 17.5 ug/ml and 66.0 pg/ml (mean 43.0 ug/ml) during cycle 1 and between 22.5/ml and 66.0 ug/ml (mean 45ug/ml) for cycle 2. Variation was seen in the area under the concentration curve of the drug (AUC) with the range for the course 1 being 698 to 1799 g/ml/h and for cycle 2 1054 to 1803 pg/ml/h. The AUC for the second cycle of treatment in the 2 patients who received the drug as a continuous infusion were 44% and 66% that obtained during the first cycle of treatment. The median survival of the patients in the trial was 262 days with a single patient surviving over 1500 days. No correlation was found between dose of drug, plasma levels of etoposide or AUC values with survival or response to treatment. Severe dose-limiting toxicity (neutropenic septicaemia) was seen in all patients and was most severe following the first treatment. No correlation was seen with toxicity and plasma levels or dose of etoposide. The measurment of drugs used in the treatment of cancer is being increasingly advocated, however, measurement in plasma may prove unsatisfactory since it may not reflect drug levels or activity at the target site.
