Induction chemotherapy, as part of an integrated plan of management for locally advanced cancers, is being practiced throughout the world, but frequently teams are unaware of the work being undertaken in other institutions. This book aims to present the full range of management techniques used in induction chemotherapy within one accessible volume. It provides up-to-date information on pioneering and cutting edge practices and documents the advantages of integrated treatment schedules. Patient selection is discussed, and each of the cancer types for which induction therapy has proved important is considered in detail. All who are responsible for the treatment of patients with locally advanced cancers will find this book to be an invaluable source of information. It will be particularly interesting for specialist oncologists aiming to set up fully comprehensive cancer centers and for health administrators wishing to learn about the benefits of establishing such centers in strategic locations.
