Now in its second edition, Modern Hematology: Biology and Clinical Management reflects the major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of blood disorders. It describes the latest clinical and scientific developments as well as details targeted and molecular therapies. The book brings together facts, concepts, and protocols important for the practice of hematology. In 23 chapters, all major blood diseases are covered, as well as rare diseases that are of scientific interest. As in the previous edition, each chapter is illustrated by tables, figures, and a selection of color plates.
Updated and expanded to reflect major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of blood disorders
