ESSENTIAL HEMATOLOGY HOFFBRAND PDF

This new knowledge is due largely to the application of next generation sequencing of DNA which has enabled the detection of the genetic mutations, inherited or acquired, that underlie these diseases. The complexity of the molecular changes underlying the malignant diseases and the relevance of this to their sensitivity or resistance to therapy is becoming apparent. This new knowledge has been accompanied by spectacular improvements in therapy. Inhibition of the B cell receptor signalling pathway has transformed the life expectancy in many patients with resistant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and some of the B cell lymphomas resistant to other therapy. JAK2 inhibitors are improving the quality of life and survival in primary myelofibrosis.

Inhibition of the B cell receptor signalling pathway has transformed the life expectancy in many patients with resistant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and some of the B cell lymphomas resistant to other therapy. JAK2 inhibitors are improving the quality of life and survival in primary myelofibrosis.

Survival in myeloma is improving remarkably with new proteasome inhibitory and immunomodulatory drugs. Life expectancy has also improved for patients with diseases such as thalassaemia major receiving multiple transfusions with the worldwide introduction of orally active iron chelating agents.

New anticoagulants which directly inhibit at a single point in the coagulation cascade and rarely need monitoring are now used commonly in preference to warfarin for the treatment and prevention of arterial and venous thrombosis. These advances in knowledge have been incorporated as new text, diagrams and tables for this seventh edition. New multiple choice questions have been added to the website and short summary boxes are included at the end of each chapter More Info.

Hoffbrand’s Essential Haematology – 7E [PDF]

Th e increased understanding of blood diseases particularly their genetic basis and changes in their treatment is such that in writing this new edition, substantial changes have been necessary throughout. Th e classifi cation of the neoplasms of the haemopoietic and lymphoid diseases has been revised by WHO and the names and defi nitions of many of these diseases have changed. Clinical features, genetics and immunophenotype are increasingly used to defi ne biological entities. We have made changes in all the relevant chapters but, in a book intended primarily for undergraduates, we have simplifi ed some of the classifi cation tables and omitted detailed descriptions of rare diseases. On the other hand, some tests e. As previously, we have used a colour line in the margin to indicate text that we consider more advanced than is needed for under graduate medical students and more appropriate for postgraduates. John Pettit, co — author on all fi ve previous editions, has retired from authorship for this edition.
