New Treatments of Leukemia and Lymphoma describes the most important advances in the therapy of hematopoietic cancers that have been derived from recent discoveries in cancer cell biology, kinase biochemistry, and immunology.

Detailed descriptions of the large number of new and effective agents that have recently become available for the treatment of leukemias and lymphomas as well as an understanding of their mechanisms of action and their integration into current therapy are provided. A number of experimental drug reagents currently in clinical investigation are also discussed. The therapies include conventional anti-metabolites, monoclonal antibodies directed to cell surface receptors, antibodies tagged with toxins and radiopharmaceuticals, inhibitors of specific kinases, stem cell transplants, and engineered T-cells designed to selectively target hematopoietic cancers.

The contents of the book will allow practitioners and investigators alike to understand what is current and state of the art as well as what to look for in the future.

* Provides an up-to-date, state of the art discussion of a rapidly changing field
* Great breadth covering conventional chemotherapeutic agents, biologic agents such as antibodies, novel small molecule inhibitors and genetically engineered cells
* Written by international experts in each of the fields
