The book is structured to comprehensively cover the complete scope of hematology, but allows fast access to key information you need in everyday practice. A section on consultative hematology includes chapters on special populations (pregnancy, pediatrics, geriatrics), infections of marrow and blood, and hematologic problems of medical practice and surgery. You'll also find a section on tools for the hematologist, covering clinical aspects of transfusion, transplantation, and the latest innovative laboratory procedures.

About the author (2006)

Stanton L Gerson is Director of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center & the National Center for Regenerative Medicine at Case Western Reserve University and Director of University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center in Cleveland. Dr. Gerson studies DNA repair, stem cells and cancer therapy. He showed that over-expression of the MGMT DNA repair gene could prevent cancer and that a mutant form of MGMT protects hematopoietic stem cells from chemotherapy using lentiviral gene therapy. He has interrogated MGMT, MMR and BER DNA repair pathways as targets for cancer therapy, and proposed that methoxyamine would block base excision repair used in combination with chemotherapy. Dr. Gerson also directed the initial use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in bone marrow transplantation & in gene therapy.
