Donald C. Doll, Radwan F. Khozouz, Wes Matthew TriplettRead MoreHematology Case Review is a comprehensive text that covers the expansive knowledge about the study of blood cells.
After collecting blood smears and bone marrow aspirates for over 40 years, Dr. Doll has created the most up to date and comprehensive compilation of hematology case studies. These samples form the core of the case studies featured in this book, including benign disorders, such as hereditary spherocytosis, to neoplastic neoplasms like acute leukemia.
Within the text, both rare and common conditions are discussed, with the presenting symptoms, blood counts, and pertinent images. The book is formatted in an interactive problem-based layout in order to enhance the question and answer features of the book. It is a widely applicable text that has been utilized for its practicality for over 15 years, and is becoming particularly important for general internists, family practice physicians, and hospitalists. Additionally, Hematology Case Review continues to be a vital tool and asset for medical students, medical residents, hematology-oncology fellows, and pathology residents.
Alvin H. SchmaierRead MoreThis is the first comprehensive, accurate introductory text on hematology for medical students. The many topics of hematology are covered and each chapter begins with an overview and then proceeds to an outline of key concepts for each specialty area. The text includes simple line drawings, algorithms and color plates, and features bulleted points and bolded key words. With its depth, and concise format, this book serves as a thorough text, general reference, and a review for the USMLE Step 1 exam, and is a valuable tool for the internal medicine clerkship rotation and exam.

Immunomodulating Drugs for the Treatment of Cancer provides a comprehensive resource for clinicians and researchers regarding immunomodulatory (IMiDs) drugs and their rapidly emerging role in cancer medicine. This new class of anticancer agents has made a tremendous impact on the treatment of patients with various malignant diseases, including blood cancers and several cancers of the solid organs. Their popularity in prescribing is based on several important characteristics including: (1) oral bioavailability, (2) non-chemotherapeutic, (3) extremely well-tolerated in all age groups, (4) ability to activate patient's own immune response against cancer, (5) ease of combination with other agents such as chemotherapy resulting in higher responses as well as (6) variability of anticancer activity.
The clinical applications of these agents are not limited to oncologists and hematologists, but also impact primary care doctors who care for these patients. Furthermore, new investigations are defining the role of these agents in non-malignant disorders as well. This textbook brings the most current information on these novel compounds to clinicians and scientists.
A companion website offers the fully searchable text and an image bank.

With the 13th edition, Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology once again bridges the gap between the clinical practice of hematology and the basic foundations of science.
Broken down into eight parts, this book provides readers with a comprehensive overview of: Laboratory Hematology, The Normal Hematologic System, Transfusion Medicine, Disorders of Red Cells, Hemostasis and Coagulation; Benign Disorders of Leukocytes, The Spleen and/or Immunoglobulins; Hematologic Malignancies, and Transplantation. Within these sections, there is a heavy focus on the morphological exam of the peripheral blood smear, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and other tissues.
With the knowledge about gene therapy and immunotherapy expanding, new, up-to-date information about the process and application of these therapies is included. Likewise, the editors have completely revised material on stem cell transplantation in regards to both malignant and benign disorders, graft versus host disease, and the importance of long-term follow-up of transplantation survivors.
The textbook comes with an online, interactive e-book that includes all text, figures, and the full reference list for each chapter. Also in the e-book are two appendices that review the clusters of differentiation (CD) molecules and lab values and photomicrographs of the blood of various species. Along with these tools, the authors plan to post frequent updates to the e-book.
