The M.D. Anderson Cancer Care series is intended to provide state-of-the art guidelines on the multimodality treatment of cancer (multimodality is defined as any combination of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation), according to the standard of practice at MDACC.Topics covered in this volume will include a spectrum of several different malignancies occurring frequently in children, as well as melanoma, supportive care, and an outline of the Center's Adolescent and Young Adult Program, a national model. Because of treatment advances, 4 out of 5 children survive cancer today.As in the previous series volumes, each chapter will end with an up-to-date list of suggested readings, as well as "key practice points" highlighting principles and practices of each chapter, for at-a-glance reference. This thorough, practical volume is the essential clinical guide for oncologists, pediatrician/oncologists, surgeons, and other physicians involved in the care of children with various cancers.
