Essentials for Clinicians: Lymphomas - Introduction

Malignant lymphomas are an especially complex group of neoplasms encompassing at least three dozen different entities with a wide variety of pathological patterns. During recent years, novel therapeutic approaches targeting distinct signalling pathways or activating the patient’s immune system have proven to be superior to classical cytostatic approaches and have become the standard of care in several lymphoma subtypes, at least in relapsed disease. Thus, particularly in this fast-developing field of lymphomas, it is essential to have an up-to-date overview of the current treatment options and what future developments are on the horizon. 

The format of this third edition remains true to the visual approach of all books in the Essentials for Clinicians series, where each figure is complemented by a succinct statement. The book is also very interactive: at the end of each page the reader can check, thanks to a couple of questions, whether he/she has understood the most important points. Each chapter concludes with a brief, but complete, summary as well as selective further critical readings. 

Thanks to our expert authors, we are now very fortunate to provide you with an excellent overview of what we consider ‘the essentials’ for the clinicians who are taking care of patients with lymphomas.
