This book summarizes advances in leukemia biology and treatment highlighting the remaining obstacles to a cure and the most successful treatments currently available. Wiernik's team at New York Medical College have done seminal work in clinical investigation as well as patient management in the leukemias. The subject lends itself particularly well to color illustrations, a key feature of the American Cancer Society A tlas of Clinical Oncology series. This book is an essential reference tool for medical and radiation oncologists, and nematologists.
