With contributions from internationally recognized experts, Lymphomas combines chapters on the evolving role of established therapies such as stem cell transplantation with other disease-oriented chapters describing pathway-directed agents and the evolving paradigm of "personalized" lymphoma treatment. Coverage includes discussion of molecular characterization for different disease-specific lymphoma subtypes and the potential for developing "personalized" treatment as well as reviewing the evolving role of conventional chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and other salvage treatments. The articles examine a range of lymphoma subtypes, including Hodgkin lymphoma, T-cell lymphoma, aggressive B-cell lymphoma, and others.
