In Pancreatic Cancer: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment, Howard A. Reber, MD, brings together a distinguished panel of world authorities to review the current state of today's understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of pancreatic cancer. Their cutting-edge reviews discuss both medical and surgical modalities and include numerous insights into the basic molecular processes underlying the disease. Among the key topics covered are the prospects for early diagnosis using molecular techniques, the latest diagnostic and therapeutic methods, the role of laparoscopy (diagnostic and therapeutic), and nonsurgical treatment. The reviewers also address the future possibilities for clinical advances, quality of life concerns, and the value of the Japanese "extended Whipple resection." Pancreatic Cancer: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment provides an up-to-date, comprehensive assessment of pancreatic cancer-both the art and the science-of what works and what does not, and in which direction the field is moving. For all clinicians who diagnose and treat this disease, as well as for basic scientists needing a summary of the many recent advances, it immediately becomes the new standard reference
