5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This edition continues the tradition of providing a comprehensive, updated textbook of hematology. This very worthy objective is spectacularly met by this edition. As a textbook of hematology, this has a broad-based audience -- medical students, residents, fellows, and practitioners (including our allied health partners) in virtually every aspect of medicine. The authors and editors are internationally recognized -- in fact, luminaries, in their fields....Williams continues to sustain its unparalleled reputation as THE textbook of hematology. I've run out of superlatives. Get it."--Doody's Review Service
Edition after edition, Williams Hematology has guided generations of clinicians, biomedical researchers, and trainees in many disciplines through the origins, pathophysiological mechanisms, and management of benign and malignant disorders of blood cells and coagulation proteins. The book begins with the evaluation of the patient and progresses to the molecular and cellular underpinnings of normal and pathological hematology. Subsequent sections present disorders of the erythrocyte, granulocytes and monocytes, lymphocytes and plasma cells, malignant myeloid and lymphoid diseases, hemostasis and thrombosis, and transfusion medicine.
Featuring a brand-new full-color presentation, the Eighth Edition of Williams Hematology is extensively revised to reflect the latest views of experts in the field. Two new chapters examine the importance of genomics in hematology and cell therapy for tissue replacement, whereas other chapters have been revised to incorporate the newest clinical approaches to the leukemias and lymphomas, and the application of targeted therapy in the treatment of hematologic disorders.
