Intraperitoneal Cancer Therapy: Principles and Practice is one of the first books to combine the latest clinical developments in the treatment of patients with peritoneal surface disease and the scientific principles that underlie the concept of intraperitoneal cancer therapy.
The book covers basic concepts such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and mathematical models of drug transport as well as practical clinical applications, highlighted with results from clinical trials and promising novel preclinical developments.
The book is a state-of-the-art reference for surgical and medical oncologists interested in the treatment of carcinomatosis. It also establishes and promotes basic and translational research interest in the field of intraperitoneal drug delivery, which has the potential to improve the outcome for this dreaded condition. Edited by two renowned surgical oncologists, it represents the definitive reference in the field of intraperitoneal cancer therapy.
