Abstract
This book describes the evolution of treatment in oncology through the lens of approximately 250 landmark clinical trials. The well-designed clinical trial is essential to the practice of medicine. There is no field that has embraced or been transformed more by the clinical trial than oncology. Each primary cancer site has a remarkable story that can be told through clinical trials. For example, patients who presented decades ago with soft tissue sarcoma of the extremities would invariably undergo limb amputation. The landmark National Cancer Institute study by Rosenberg et al. randomized patients to limb sparing surgery followed by adjuvant radiation therapy compared with limb amputation. This study helped change the standard of care by allowing most patients to retain their functioning limbs with an improvement in quality of life and no compromise in overall survival. Such major clinical trials for common malignancies including breast, prostate, lung, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and gynecologic cancers are discussed. Because oncology is multidisciplinary, this book should be of interest for radiation oncologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, and other physicians interested in learning more about the landmark trials that have shaped oncology.

Proton beam therapy : how protons are revolutionizing cancer treatment

While radiation therapy is a mainstay of cancer treatment, traditional linear accelerators mainly use photons to irradiate cancerous tissue. Photons deposit much more energy in the surrounding normal tissue than protons. Proton beam therapy is a revolutionary alternative that deposits most of its cancer-killing energy within the area of the tumor, thereby potentially√°improving cure rates and reducing side effects in properly selected patients.

Abstract
While radiation therapy is a mainstay of cancer treatment, traditional linear accelerators mainly use photons to irradiate cancerous tissue. Photons deposit much more energy in the surrounding normal tissue than protons. Proton beam therapy is a revolutionary alternative that deposits most of its cancer-killing energy within the area of the tumor, thereby potentiallyáimproving cure rates and reducing side effects in properly selected patients. Proton Beam Therapy: How Protons Are Revolutionizing Cancer Treatment guides the reader through existing evidence supporting proton beam therapy for an increasing number of patients and conditions, including pediatric, prostate, and lung cancer, mediastinal tumors, skull base tumors, conditions of the eye, and sarcomas.
Contents
An introduction to proton beam therapy -- Comparative treatment plans -- Proton beam therapy for pediatric conditions -- Proton beam therapy for prostate cancer -- Proton beam therapy for lung cancer -- Proton beam therapy for mediastinal tumors -- Proton beam therapy for the central nervous system -- Proton beam therapy for skull base tumors -- Proton beam therapy for conditions of the eye -- Proton beam therapy for sarcomas -- Index.

Abstract
Designed as an easy-to-use, practical guide to tumors of the eye, lids, and orbit, this Open Access book comprehensively addresses surgical treatment and management of diseases related to ophthalmic oncology. Surgical Ophthalmic Oncology: A Collaborative Open Access Reference is an ideal reference for general ophthalmologists, surgeons, fellows and trainees around the world who encounter these diseases in the care of their patients. Notably, this book includes considerations for those ophthalmologists offering subspecialty care in environments with limited access to advanced technology and instrumentation. Individual chapters address diagnostic indications, pre-operative and post-operative concerns, and provide detailed explanations of surgical techniques required to manage various eye cancer ailments with help of ample illustrations. High-quality videos included throughout the book provide readers with the opportunity to review surgical steps in real-time as a learning tool. Chapters thoroughly cover tumors of eyelid, cornea and conjunctiva, orbit as well as intraocular tumors, while later chapters discuss ophthalmic radiation therapy. The book concludes with a section on ophthalmic pathology which details essential guidelines on relevant aspects from specimen collection and transport, to interpretation of the pathology report. Surgical Ophthalmic Oncology: A Collaborative Open Access Reference is a unique and necessary valuable resource for ophthalmologists, trainees, and related medical professionals working in underserved areas in providing quality care for patients suffering from ocular cancers.
