Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology Greer Arber Glader 13th Edition

Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology Greer Arber Glader 13th Edition

Wintrobe's Clinical Hematology Greer Arber Glader 13th EditionWith the 13th edition of Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology, this new edition once again bridges the gap between the clinical practice of hematology and the basic foundations of science.

Broken down into eight parts, this book provides readers with a comprehensive overview of: Laboratory Hematology, The Normal Hematologic System, Transfusion Medicine, Disorders of  Red Cells, Hemostasis and Coagulation; Benign Disorders of Leukocytes, The Spleen and/or Immunoglobulins; Hematologic Malignancies, and Transplantation. Within these sections, there is a heavy focus on the morphological exam of the peripheral blood smear, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and other tissues.

With the knowledge about gene therapy and immunotherapy expanding, the book includes new, up-to-date information about the process and application of these therapies. Likewise, the editors have  shed a completely new light on the process of stem cell transplantation in regards to both malignant and benign disorders, graft versus host disease, and the importance of long-term follow-up of transplantation survivors.

The textbook features an online, interactive companion that has a reference list for each chapter as well as two appendices one reviewing the clusters of differentiation (CD) molecules and one that reviews lab values and photomicrographs of the blood of animals.

Along with these tools, the authors plan to post updates online when they are particularly pertinent or important.

FIRST PRIZE- Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology, 13th Edition

“It is a pleasure to have this book on my desktop- I am unlikely to part with it long enough to put it on a shelf. This book has been a favourite of mine for many years and yet this update has moved it on to another plane. The presentation is excellent and the book is one to be coveted. The online access and the regular planned updates will be a valuable resource to keep this book at the forefront of its field. There is a need to have a unifying text and there are relatively few books that manage to achieve this. I, therefore, feel that this fills a gap in the market. The book is very easy to read and therefore ideal for individuals “dipping in” to read sections or to look up specific sections. The illustrations make it particularly appealing. The style lends itself well to trainees in the specialties it is designed for, and the referencing and online resource make it useful for specialists that need to span a broad cross-section of haematology. This is a great book and its new design makes it particularly appealing. I particularly like having everything in a single volume and the indexing is very clear.” – BMA Medical Book Awards 2014 Reviewer

“The 13th edition is a justified replacement of the previous edition due to the advances in the understanding of the biology, diagnostic tests, and treatment options in the intervening years.” – Robert Chen, MD, City of Hope on belaf of Doody’s Review Serivce
