Hematology encompasses the physiology and pathology of blood and of the bloodforming organs. In common with other areas of medicine, the pace of change in hematology has been breathtaking over recent years. There is now a plethora of treatment options available to the hematologist which happily coincides with a greatly improved outlook for the vast majority of patients with blood disorders, in particular those with hematological malignancies. Improvements in the clinic reflect, and in many respects are driven by, advances in our scientific understanding of hematological processes under both normal and disease conditions. This book which consists of a selection of essays aims to inform both specialist and non-specialist readers about some of the latest advances in hematology, in both laboratory and clinic.....
