The true story of the war on cancer from one of its generals Cancer touches everybody's life in one way or another. But most of us know very little about how the disease works, why we treat it the way we do, and the personalities whose dedication got us where we are today. For fifty years, Dr. Vincent T. DeVita Jr. has been one of those key players: He has held just about every major position in the field, and he developed the first successful chemotherapy treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma. As one of oncology's leading figures, DeVita knows what cancer looks like from the lab bench and the bedside. The Death of Cancer is his illuminating and deeply personal look at the science and the history of one of the world's most formidable diseases. In his hands, even the most complex medical concepts are comprehensible. Cowritten with his daughter, the science writer Elizabeth DeVita-Raeburn, The Death of Cancer is also a personal tale about the false starts and major breakthroughs, the strong-willed oncologists who clashed with conservative administrators (and one another), and the courageous patients whose willingness to test cutting-edge research helped those oncologists find potential treatments. With historical depth and authenticity, DeVita reveals the true story of the fight against cancer. The Death of Cancer is an ambitious, vital book about a life-and-death subject that touches us all.

The MD Anderson Manual of Medical Oncology was designed to fill an important void in oncology reference material by serving as a hands-on resource for the practicing oncologist. It was written exclusively by MD Anderson faculty and fellows with the idea of presenting a bird's eye view of medical oncology as it is currently practiced at that institution. While definitely written from the perspective of the medical oncologist, this book clearly emphasizes MD Anderson's multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. Furthermore, while evidence-based rationales are given for patient care strategies, no apologies are offered for articulating the unique perspectives and biases as they apply to cancer biology and therapy as practiced at this top-rated cancer center. The rationales for ongoing clinical trials are clearly articulated as well as the importance of ongoing clinical investigation. The authors have filled the book with tables, graphics, relevant pathology figures, and other illustrative images, making it visually stimulating. Flowchart and diagrammatic algorithms are supplied to provide readers with a practical guide to the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies used at MD Anderson. Numerous chapters address important palliative and supportive measures, such as oncologic emergencies, infections, endocrine manifestations of non-endocrine tumors, palliation, and long-term followup.
