Immunomodulating Drugs for the Treatment of Cancer provides a comprehensive resource for clinicians and researchers regarding immunomodulatory (IMiDs) drugs and their rapidly emerging role in cancer medicine. This new class of anticancer agents has made a tremendous impact on the treatment of patients with various malignant diseases, including blood cancers and several cancers of the solid organs. Their popularity in prescribing is based on several important characteristics including: (1) oral bioavailability, (2) non-chemotherapeutic, (3) extremely well-tolerated in all age groups, (4) ability to activate patient's own immune response against cancer, (5) ease of combination with other agents such as chemotherapy resulting in higher responses as well as (6) variability of anticancer activity.

In Psychotherapy for the Treatment of Substance Abuse, leading authorities on substance abuse treatment techniques review and illustrate the most common interventions for opioid-related and alcohol-related substance abuse disorders, as well as crucial methodologies for testing and patient placement. Methods reviewed include self-help fellowships such as Alcoholics Anonymous, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic treatments, motivational enhancement, group and family therapy, contingency management, and the multimodal approach called Network Therapy, which recruits the support of friends and family to prompt abstinence and prevent relapse. Each chapter includes vivid case studies to illustrate the approach described, as well as a review of the key clinical concepts and a list of essential readings. Adapting a new, clinically focused manual from their popular American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment, now in its fourth edition, Dr. Galanter and Dr. Kleber have designed Psychotherapy for the Treatment of Substance Abuse to be of practical application to both experienced clinicians and those new to the field. The accompanying DVD demonstrates Network Therapy in practice and includes enlightening commentary on key issues that are relevant across the many modalities of substance abuse treatment discussed in the book.
