Reinhold Munker and his distinguished colleagues have updated and expanded Modern Hematology: Biology and Clinical Management, now in its second edition, to reflect the major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of blood disorders. Modern Hematology: Biology and Clinical Management, Second Edition describes the latest clinical and scientific developments, including molecular studies used to diagnose a variety of hematological disorders and guide their treatment. Targeted and molecular therapies are discussed in detail, including kinase inhibitors in myeloproliferative disorders and humanized monoclonal antibodies. The use of peripheral blood and umbilical cord blood stem cells for transplantation is described, as well as the rationale and indications for non-myeloablative transplantation, emphasizing the preferability of immunotherapy over cytotoxic chemotherapy.Modern Hematology: Biology and Clinical Management, Second Edition brings together facts, concepts, and protocols important for the practice of hematology. In 23 chapters, all major blood diseases are covered, as well as rare diseases that are of scientific interest. The first two chapters introduce the reader to the scientific basis of blood disorders. As in the previous edition, each chapter is illustrated by tables, figures, and a selection of color plates. Experts in pediatric hematology, myeloma, blood transfusion, hemoglobinopathies, pharmacology, and infectious diseases have expanded the scope of Modern Hematology.Comprehensive and informative, Modern Hematology: Biology and Clinical Management, Second Edition is an invaluable resource for medical students, hematology trainees, residents, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians in other specialties treating patients with benign and malignant blood disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This book works as a stand-alone text for its intended purpose of providing a practical approach for diagnosis and management. . Modern Hematology . is well-designed to accompany structured lectures, practical laboratories, and demonstrations for hematology courses for medical students, medical technologists, and others in related fields. This textbook does the job well. It also is well suited to serve as a basic reference and a means of identifying where to obtain more comprehensive or specialized information." (James R. Egner, Journal of the American Medical Association, December, 2007)
