Intraperitoneal Cancer Therapy: Principles and Practice

Intraperitoneal Cancer Therapy: Principles and Practice is one of the first books to combine the latest clinical developments in the treatment of patients with peritoneal surface disease and the scientific principles that underlie the concept of intraperitoneal cancer therapy.

The book covers basic concepts such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and mathematical models of drug transport as well as practical clinical applications, highlighted with results from clinical trials and promising novel preclinical developments.

Accompanied by 88 colour illustrations, this is a state-of-the-art reference for surgical and medical oncologists interested in the treatment of carcinomatosis. It also establishes and promotes basic and translational research interest in the field of intraperitoneal drug delivery, which has the potential to improve the outcome for this dreaded condition.

Edited by two renowned surgical oncologists, it represents the definitive reference in the field of intraperitoneal cancer therapy.

"The unique feature of this book is its complete coverage of all essentials for treating peritoneal surface malignancies - it is truly a 'one stop shop"...The quality of this book is superb and the digital version provides an extra dimension. It is unique in the comprehensive coverage of this highly specific topic and cannot readily be compared to other books." - Carlos HF Chan MD PhD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics), Doody's Book Review Service, awarding it 5 stars (100/100).

Editors: Wim P Ceelen and Edward A Levine
