Sarcoma & GIST plus Cancer of Unknown Primary Site: Essentials for Clinicians


Editors: Iwona Lugowska, Jean-Yves Blay, Hans Gelderblom
Published: 2020

Management of rare tumours is a matter of high-level expertise.

Sarcoma & GIST plus Cancer of Unknown Primary Site: Essentials for Clinicians is intended primarily to be read by young oncologists (residents at the beginning of their career) and oncologists not working in sarcoma reference centres, thus enabling them to recognise clinical situations/cases that require referral to the centres with higher volume.

It provides the reader with the essential information or ‘What every oncologist should know’. In addition to the essentials, the book also introduces more advanced knowledge about sarcomas for those who wish to explore the topic further. The book also includes a comprehensive chapter on cancer of unknown primary site.

As with all titles in the Essentials for Clinicians series, topics ranging from pathology to current therapeutic options are succinctly presented with concise text and colour illustrations to enable the reader to easily assimilate the information; while revision questions at the end of each page test the reader’s acquired knowledge.

The inclusion of a chapter on ‘new drugs and novel treatment strategies’ discusses actionable targets and drug development in soft tissue sarcomas and GIST.
