Michael J. Droller, MD and a panel of experienced clinicians bring their strong background in clinical research to bear on the assessment and management of bladder cancer. Their comprehensive discussion summarizes the state-of-the-art in diagnosis and treatment, based on the latest understanding of bladder cancer's epidemiology, carcinogenesis, and tumor markers. Topics of particular interest include the role of genetics and molecular biology in evaluating bladder cancer clinically, the evaluation of the results of systemic treatment in advanced disease, the current status of tumor markers in bladder cancer, and the means for further study in their applicability. Insightful and evidenced-based, Bladder Cancer: Current Diagnosis and Treatment provides active clinicians and clinical investigators with not only a critical survey of the rapidly expanding research in the area, but also a state-of-the-art tutorial on today's optimal assessment and treatment of bladder cancer.

Editorial Reviews

"Michael Droller has corralled the subjects' most influential opinion leaders and wrought from each a disciplined manuscript on their particular area of forms and excellent overview of Bladder Cancer for any urologist, senior urology resident or even the translational research investigator. As the chapters unroll, the organized structure of the compiled works progressively build the reader's knowledge...Dr. Droller skillfully used his editorial hand to maintain a disciplined text presenting scientific data to support any and all authored suppositions....Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this text. I think even the reader well verse in the bladder cancer literature will benefit from the organized manner in which this text presents an enormous amount of information" - Journal of Pelvic Surgery"Dr. Droller has put together a small but densely packed volume on the current issues involved in managing patients with this disease. These issues include molecular markers of the disease, both for prognosis and detection, pathology, intravesical neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, surgery, radiotherapy, urinary diversion techniques for both women and men and statistical consideration in bladder cancer trials. The authors of the chapters represent leaders in American universities as well as Norway and Sweden.- Oncology"This book presents a detailed summary of all aspects of bladder cancer and comprises contributions from 44 experts in this field....this text provides a precise synopsis of all contemporary issues in the management of bladder cancer. It would be useful as a reference to a busy urologist in practice and provides a well summarized, manageable text for those trainees sitting the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Urology) examination." - British Journal of Surgery"Insightful and evidence-based, Bladder Cancer: Current Diagnosis and Treatment provides active clinicians and clinical investigators with not only a critical survey of the rapidly expanding research in the area, but also a state-of-the-art tutorial on today's optimal assessment and treatment of bladder cancer." -Tumori"The scope is ambitious and overall provides a very useful book for anyone using or about to use ELISAs...there is a lot of useful information not present in many other single ELISA publications..." - Immunology News"The book represents an outstanding work, completed by high quality figures and tables and it offers excellent and useful information for both urologists and clinical oncologists." - Neoplasma"...there are substantial chapters that focus on the epidemiology and the molecular biology of urothelial malignancy. This is timely - since, in common with other tumors, there has been a great deal of research in this area in recent years. Overall this is a useful book that summarizes modern thinking on the management of bladder cancer. It would be a useful addition to the collection of anyone involved in the management of this disease." - Cancer Forum
