Written by world experts in the field, this book presents up-to-date, in-depth coverage of hematopoietic growth factors and related cytokines that are currently being developed or used for managing congenital and acquired forms of chronic cytopenias.
Summarizes important clinical trial data in a convenient tabulated format and provides fundamental knowledge on hematopoiesis physiology and regulation!
Facilitating rational decision making and cost-effective treatment strategies, this clinically and disease-oriented work describes as well as assesses the benefits and limitations of hematopoietic growth factor and cytokine use in
graft failure
peripheral-blood progenitor cell transplantation
chemotherapy- and radiotherapy-induced cytopenias in patients with solid tumors and hematological malignancies, including leukemias and myelodysplastic syndromes
cytopenic states related to infectious conditions such as AIDS
ex vivo expansion of hematopoietic progenitor cells
post-operative procedures for bone marrow transplantation
renal failure
the neonate
transfusion medicine
and more!
Supplemented with literature citations and drawings, Cytokines in the Treatment of Hematopoietic Failure is an essential resource for hematologists, oncologists, internists, radiotherapists, pediatricians, neonatologists, infectious disease specialists, nephrologists, immunologists, transfusion medicine specialists, researchers in pharmaceutical companies, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
