Hormone Therapy in Breast and Prostate Cancer


In
Hormone Therapy in Breast and Prostate Cancer, many of today’s leading
researchers and clinicians describe the principles underlying targeted
hormonal treatments, assess the actions of new and established agents,
and illustrate the new applications of hormonal chemoprevention for
breast cancer. Topics range from preclinical and clinical antiestrogens
to the inhibition of estrogen synthesis and the effects of androgen
withdrawal. A wide variety of proven and new agents are
discussed-antiestrogens, including aromatase inhibitors (anastrozole,
letrozole, and others), SERMs (tamoxifen, raloxifene, and others), and
such antiandrogenic strategies as goserelin and bicalutamide
Review
 From the reviews:
"...takes the reader on a fascinating
scientific journey that illustrates how the combination of clinical and
basic investigations has realized the first two objectives for both of
these prevalent malignancies and, with breast cancer, the promise of
being close to prevention." -Foreword by Prof. Elwood Jensen, Professor
Emeritus, University of Chicago
"This was a well-written and
well-thought-out book on extensive and changing subject matter...the
chapter on nonsteroidal antiandrogens is one of the best chapters I've
read on the subject. It was very well written and covered the subject
thoroughly." -The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
"Hormone Therapy in
Breast and Prostate Cancer offers an authoritative state-of-the-art
account of the role of hormones in prostate and breast cancer...all of
the chapters are extremely useful to both researchers and clinicians. "
-Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism
"I highly recommend this
volume for all oncologists who treat these patients and for the
laboratory investigators who would like to see how their work is
translated to the clinic." -Oncology
"...this is an excellent
contemporary review of this field. It will be of interest, in
particular, to obviously breast surgeons or urologists with an interest
in malignancy and, in particular, those involved in clinical trials."
-ANZ J. Surg
“This book, a paperback version of a book originally
published in 2002, does a good job of chronicling the history of the
major developments in hormone therapy for both breast and prostate
cancer. … I would have recommended it then to any medicinal chemist or
pharmacologist that was just starting breast or prostate cancer research
… . can be useful for people looking for a good introduction to hormone
therapy … .” (Ross V. Weatherman, ChemMedChem, Vol. 5, 2010)
“The
aim of this book is to trace the origin of endocrine therapy in breast
and prostate cancer … . Overall the book is more detailed than would be
expected and is all the better for it. … This was an interesting book
which was much more than the title suggests. It was detailed and the
coverage broad giving the reader a wealth of information. The reference
lists are very comprehensive … . Overall this is a very useful text.”
(Heather M. Wallace, BTS Newsletter, Issue 37, Winter, 2010)
