Details about Textbook of Personalized Medicine 3rd edition
Textbook of Personalized Medicine 3rd edition PDF free download – Considerable advances have taken place in personalized medicine since the 2nd edition of this textbook in 2015, requiring rewriting. Approximately 50% of the old material has been replaced, although historical and classical items have been retained. The text has been expanded and is supplemented with 69 tables and 41 illustrations. References are appended at the end of each chapter and the total number has increased to approximately 1000 despite deletion of older references. Most new developments have occurred in personalized oncology and the original chapter has been split into three, with personalized immuno-oncology as a separate chapter. As in previous editions, the uniform style of a single-author book has been maintained. The audience of physicians, pharmacists, research scientists, healthcare providers, and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies is kept in mind. Lay readers and patients, who are important participants in personalized medicine, can understand this book if they have a basic science education. The title “Personalized Medicine” has been retained from the frst monograph on this topic by the author in 1998. Recently, there is an effort to replace it by “Precision Medicine,” a term that has been used in this book as well as in previous editions as one of a dozen terms used for the description of personalized medicine, where the focus is on the “person” or the “patient,” and the coverage of various aspects of healthcare is comprehensive. Finally, the author would like to thank Gregory Sutorius, Senior Editor, Clinical Medicine, Springer, for his encouragement and support throughout this project. Eugenia Judson, Production Editor at SPi Global for Springer Nature, has been very helpful during the publishing process.
