The Duke Glioma Handbook: Pathology, Diagnosis, and Management
The management of patients with a glioma is challenging and best achieved by a team approach encompassing a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and surgical excision in a specialist Cancer Center – the balance of treatment depending on the site and grade of tumor. Survival rates are improving and care of patients with or recovering from gliomas is increasingly handled in the community under the care of local physicians. This book provides an authoritative, multi-disciplinary summary of glioma biology, genetics, management and social issues, based on the world-leading program at the Duke University Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center, one of the world’s largest and most successful Centers to offer brain cancer treatment and translational research. The text is written by specialists from this Center, giving it a consistent approach and style. This is an important educational resource for neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, psychiatrists, neurohospitalists and ancillary members of neuro-oncology teams.
