About this Book
Hematopoietic neoplasms are the most common animal tumors for which chemo- or radiation therapy are now given. New research, information, and images unavailable in any previous publication now make it possible to examine these diseases, categorize for treatment, and in some cases ascertain the impact on survival.
A ground-breaking book in veterinary medicine, Veterinary Comparative Hematopathology is a heavily illustrated comprehensive reference on hematopoietic neoplasms in domestic and laboratory animals. The book enables veterinary pathologists and oncologists to provide more specificity in both diagnosis and therapy, and will serve as a seminal reference for future work in the field.
The book offers a unique comparative approach based on the WHO classification of these tumors in humans. Known animal tumors are described and compared to their counterparts in humans. Those tumors now defined in humans but without a recognized animal counterpart are described in the human context, thus better facilitating future identification in animals.
