Leukaemia and Myeloma: Essentials for Clinicians, edited by the internationally recognised experts Drs Veronika Ballová, Michele Ghielmini and Meletios-Athanassios Dimopoulos is an asset for clinicians dealing with haematological malignancies and will them help to care for patients in an optimal way. This book presents basic knowledge as well as deeper insight into novel therapeutic developments, in the context of tremendous progress, not only in understanding the biology but also in the clinical management of haematological malignancies.Besides acute leukaemias and multiple myeloma, this volume also covers chronic myeloid leukaemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloproliferative neoplasms and amyloidosis, thereby providing a comprehensive overview about leukaemias and myeloma as well as related or associated diseases. It informs the reader about biology, classification and treatment, including symptomatic therapy and management of complications.The concept to divide information into “What every oncologist/haematologist should know” and “More advanced knowledge” will address young as well as advanced haematologists/oncologists.
