Description

This book provides hands-on information on how to manage pregnant cancer patients in clinical practice.

In this context a multidisciplinary perspective is essential, and contributions are accordingly presented from experts in surgical management, medical oncology, radiotherapy, pharmacokinetics, obstetric care, psychological care, neonatal and pediatric care. In addition a series of chapters focused on management in particular disease settings are presented, including breast cancer, melanoma, cervical cancer, ovarian tumors, lymphoma, leukemia, and thoracic cancers.
The book reflects the major progress that has been achieved in the care of pregnant cancer patients in the recent years as important data have become available on patient management, and fetal safety in addition to valuable preclinical research on the impact of pregnancy on pharmacokinetics of anti-cancer agents. Edited and authored by worldwide leaders in the field, it will serve as a valuable resource not only for oncologists but also for obstetricians, gynecologists, neonatologists, and pediatricians caring for pregnant cancer patients and their newborns.
