About this book
This handbook is an in-depth and comprehensive guide to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, staging, treatment and management of patients with multiple myeloma. The Handbook was commissioned to address an unmet need for a book of this kind in the myeloma field and to provide busy healthcare professionals with an informative and educational review of the current and emerging treatment recommendations for multiple myeloma. Myeloma is a type of bone marrow cancer arising from plasma cells and is the second most common form of bone marrow cancer, but represents just 1% of all cancers. The causes of myeloma are not fully understood but it is thought to be caused by an interaction of both genetic and environmental factors. This Handbook discusses these issues as well the latest developments in the field and will be an invaluable source of topical information for all healthcare professionals with an interest in multiple myeloma.
