Abstract

Grundmann et al in this book entitled Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, have put together a compilation of papers presented at a three-day symposium on nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Dusseldorf, West Germany, conducted Oct 23-25, 1980. During this symposium, the pathologic classification of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, along with correlations between histologic types, ethnic risk groups, HLA antigen profiles, and Epstein-Barr virus seroimmunology was discussed. The clinical staging of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and correlations between Epstein-Barr virus antibodies and various staging systems were discussed. Clinical applications on the prevention and treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma constitute the last session of the three-day symposium.

This compendium on nasopharyngeal carcinoma is not for the beginner. This book contains the most recent and up-to-date summary of the science of nasopharyngeal carcinoma as we know it in the world today. This book emphasizes that the nasopharyngeal carcinoma is most likely the best studied from both a basic science and clinical research method
