About this title:

Treatment of patients with intracranial gliomas, especially high-grade neoplasms, usually requires postoperative adjuvant therapy. Significant progress in the understanding of tumour biology, technological advances in irradiation delivery, and development of novel antitumor drugs have led to an expansion of the therapeutic arsenal in neuro-oncology.

This publication provides a unique review of the various options for adjuvant therapy, with special emphasis placed on current evidence-based treatment standards and guidelines, and on perspectives of further improvement in long-term outcomes. Its seventeen chapters review the histopathological and molecular features of gliomas and describe:

  • basic principles and clinical results of fractionated radiotherapy
  • stereotactic radiosurgery
  • brachytherapy
  • use of radiosensitizers
  • systemic chemotherapy, and
  • antiangiogenic therapy.

Particular attention is paid to treatment of paediatric patients and to physical and psychological rehabilitation and supportive care at the end of life.

This book and its accompanying volumes are mainly directed at neuro-oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other clinicians treating patients with brain tumours.

Editors: M F Chernov, Y Muragaki, S Kesari, and I E McCutcheon
