This updated Fourth Edition provides comprehensive coverage of the biology of gynecologic cancer, the therapeutic modalities available, and the diagnosis and treatment of site-specific malignancies. Because of the importance of multimodality treatment, the site-specific chapters are co-authored by a surgical oncologist, a medical oncologist, a radiation oncologist, and a pathologist.
A significant portion of this edition focuses on monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, and gene directed therapies and how they can greatly improve treatment outcomes. A new chapter on end-of-life care is also included. Three distinguished new editors—Richard R. Barakat, MD, Maurie Markman, MD, and Marcus E. Randall, MD—now join the editorial team.
