  • Details

Therapeutic Strategies in Prostate Cancer is a concise and up-to-date review of the latest clinical developments. The latest guidelines on clinical management are reviewed and it provides background on pharmacology and mechanisms of drug action.

Prostate cancer accounts for nearly a quarter of all male cancers, and the incidence is rising as detection rates continue to improve, and life expectancy increases. Timely intervention affords a wider range of management options and in this new volume the editors review the choices available. In the first section lifestyle interventions, such as nutrition and screening, and evaluation of risk factors are discussed; then follows an update on management strategies for localized and locally advanced cancer in various risk groups, drawing on the results of the latest clinical trials. The third section of the book looks at advanced cancer including the management of metastases, and encompasses hormonal and chemotherapy, and palliative care. The volume concludes with a review of common complications of prostate cancer such as urinary obstruction and erectile dysfunction, and appropriate strategies for pain control. Among the key topics discussed are:
* The evidence for and against PSA screening
* The value of current prognostic models in predicting clinical outcomes
* The role of biomarkers in evaluating therapeutic success
* How to determine the endpoint of clinical trials
* New horizons in chemotherapy for prostate cancer

This work addresses questions which challenge every clinician involved with the care of cancer patients today, and provides authoritative insights into the thinking that will define best practice in future.
