Withrow and MacEwen’s Small Animal Clinical Oncology 5th Edition PDF
Since the first edition in 1989 this text has expanded all segments of the book to keep current with the profound changes in cancer biology and technology; in fact, each edition could be considered a milestone in the development of this specialty. The intent of this text continues to be production of a relevant summary of the field of comparative cancer biology and management for those engaged in all aspects of the veterinary profession. Approximately 20% of this edition has been substantially changed with new authors and both new additions and deletions of entire chapters to reflect an appropriate emphasis on the current state of the profession.
There is still much to be done and future advances should con-tinue to be a focus for expansion in subsequent editions of this text. Advancing the use and application of evidence-based medicine still remains a challenge in veterinary oncology. The desire to increase evidence-based decision making in clinical practice is being con-sidered throughout the veterinary profession as a whole, and appro-priate reporting guidelines for manuscript submission will soon be implemented in the leading veterinary journals.
Such guidelines will permit sorting of high or low levels of evidence and an opportunity to engage in formal post publication data analysis for systematic reviews. We look forward to the next edition of the text that includes therapeutic recommendations based on strong evidence. We also continue to hope that the next edition will see a quantum leap in satisfying several critical needs in the field. We urgently need improved control outcomes for canine lymphoma, hemangiosarcoma, and osteosarcoma and validated biomarkers to assist with prognostic and predictive estimates for all cancers—but in particular, those highly lethal disease processes mentioned above that have frustrated all of us for decades.
