Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Dr. Stephen B. Strum began his medical oncology practice in 1973. He collaborated with Dr. Fernand Labrie in 1983 on the use of combined androgen blockade in the treatment of prostate cancer-six years prior to FDA approval of Eulexin (flutamide) and Lupron (leoprolide). As a result of this pioneering work, his entire oncology practice was soon focused solely on prostate cancer.

Format: Taschenbuch
Dr. Stephen B. Strum betreibt seit über 30 Jahren eine onkologische Praxis in USA, und fast ebenso lange befasst er sich ausschließlich mit der Behandlung von Prostatakrebs. In diesem Buch stellt er an Prostatakrebs erkrankten Männer sein ganzes Wissen zur Verfügung und leitet sie an, sich mit der Krankheit intensiv auseinanderzusetzen.
Donna Pogliano hat sich bei der Patientenberatung und -betreuung engagiert und weiß von daher, welche Fragen Patienten haben und welches Wissen sie besitzen sollten.
Das Buch nennt sich "Primer", also Fibel, es ist aber eher die derzeitige "Prostatakrebs-Bibel" für Betroffene, die mehr wissen wollen, als was ihr Urologe ihnen erzählt, bevor sie sich für eine Therapie entscheiden, und die auch wissen wollen, was sie selbst dazu beitragen können, die Erkrankung unter Kontrolle zu halten. Nach der Lektüre werden sie viel mehr wissen als der Durchschnitts-Urologe. Aus diesem Grund sollte es aber auch eine Pflichtlektüre für Urologen sein, die ja in Deutschland die erste Anlaufstelle für Prostatakrebskranke sind.
Das Buch gliedert sich in fünf Kapitel:
1. How to proceed (Wie soll ich (nach der Diagnose "Krebs") vorgehen?)
2. The basics of prostate cancer (Die Grundlagen des Prostatakrebses)
3. Diagnosis and testing (Diagnostik und Untersuchungen)
4. Treatment options (Behandlungsmöglichkeiten)
5. What you should have learned from this primer (Was Sie nach der Lektüre dieses Buches wissen sollten)
Ergänzt wird das Buch durch zahlreiche Abbildungen und Tabellen sowie einen umfangreichen Anhang, der allein etwa die Hälfte des Buches ausmacht, mit weiterer Information, Angaben über weitere Literatur, ein Glossar, die neuesten Partin-Tabellen und vieles andere mehr.
Die Lektüre des Buches setzt natürlich gute bis sehr gute Englischkenntnisse voraus.
(Der Rezensent ist selbst Prostatakrebskranker)

5.0 von 5 Sternen More than a "Primer on Prostate Cancer" 11. Mai 2004
Von William L. Lambright - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, January 2004. My urologist told me to "get informed on your disease" and gave me the titles of a couple of books he recommended. "A Primer on Prostate Cancer: The Empowered Patient's Guide " was not one on his list. - It should have been!
A fellow prostate cancer patient loaned me his copy. I have my own now. "The Primer" is a classic!

Before reading "The Primer" I ordered "The Prostate" by Dr. Patrick Walsh and Janet Worthington - a good, but out of date book,especially when discussing Cryosurgery with only 2 pages devoted to the procedure. In contrast "The Primer" explains Cryosurgery in great and up-to-date detail. It devotes 7 full pages with excellent color diagrams to Cryo - an often neglected and misunderstood treatment option.
I also read "Prostate & Cancer"(Revised Edition) by Dr. Sheldon Marks. This is a much more basic guide in a Q&A format. Once again it is dated and brief as to Cryotherapy as a treatment option. I found "The Primer" to be through on all treatment strategies without being too technical. It is "accurate and balanced".
Current testing procedures, treatment options, and data are presented in a easy to access and understand format! The blue, green red color coding of sentences of special importance make the book easy to "skim" for key information and guidance. The physician notes are invaluable sources of "real patient" information. This makes the book personal and "alive" with actual patient histories.
There are other helps on the various treatment strategies but the "key" to this book is found on page 72 where the authors outline an approach to achieve the best outcome for any prostate cancer patient. This paragraph alone is worth the price of the book!
I hope the authors will keep "The Primer" current with a "revised edition" in about 5 years!
"The Primer" is a "must read" book for the newly diagnosed or post-treatment patient! It will remain as a reference work as I help others become "empowered patients" as the authors of this excellent guide have helped me to become.
Thanks, Dr. Strum and Donna Pogliano. Your book has/will help thousands of men! We are grateful.
I recommend this book without reservation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is the 15. Juni 2005
Von Charles (Chuck) Maack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"A Primer on Prostate Cancer - The Empowered Patient's Guide" provides excellent insight into answering the many questions of the newly diagnosed or recurring Prostate Cancer patient. We recommend its review and strongly recommend that every Prostate Cancer patient purchase the "Primer" not only for himself but for his physician as likely the most authoritative and informative book available that explains the many aspects of Prostate Cancer treatment in medical terms that can be understood by both the layman patient and his attending physician. Dr. Strum and Donna Pogliano have provided us the procedures being practiced by those who specialize specifically in Prostate Cancer research and treatment and who are far ahead of their contemporaries in recognizing and understanding the latest innovations in Prostate Cancer therapy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely The Most Complete Book On Prostate Cancer 7. Mai 2003
Von Judy Thurman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Dr. Stephen Strum and Donna Pogliano have written an excellent book which will guide both patient and physician, alike, to optimal care in the treatment of prostate cancer. Easy to read and understand, color coded for quick reference, basic and advanced information depending on the readers interest, it's all there. I use it as my prostate cancer bible and even carry it with me to PCa support group meetings. When discussions raise a question, we find the answer.
The dedication of these two people in producing a text of this quality will change the way men will be able to live with PCa and will impact the quality of life of those men who may eventually die from prostate cancer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must have guide for PC patients and doctors 19. November 2002
Von Jim Waldenfels - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the book I wish I had had at the start of my three year journey as a PC survivor! I've read at least a dozen other good books on PC, but this one is head and shoulders above the others. The reason: it's central theme is that treatment strategy and tactics need to be in synch with the biology of the patient's cancer and overall biology and circumstances, such as age and other health issues. It goes far beyond the current norm of providing descriptions of treatments and generalized odds of success. It does this by explaining how to assess biology before and during treatment, using: blood tests in addition to PSA like free PSA, ultrasensative PSA, PAP, VEGF, pyrilinks dpd; tissue studies like ploidy, bcl-2, and p53; and advanced imaging beyond the bone scan and often useless CT scan like the endo-rectal MRI with spectroscopy, the fusion ProstaScint scan, and the quantitative CT scan for bone density as contrasted to the commonly used DEXA scan. It explains what these tests are like, why they are important in making treatment choices, and what the numerical results mean, citing reference studies. For example, unfavorable results on some tests, such as the PAP and VEGF tests, indicate that an RP, RT or both are likely or unlikely to be successful. The book provides advice on keeping records and provides outstanding examples of forms for summarizing key results.
This book will be of great value to doctors who are unfamiliar with developments beyond their own specialties or local capabilities, such as the epidemic nature of loss of bone density among PC patients, not just those on androgen deprivation therapy (ADT, aka hormonal therapy), use of ultrasensitve and free PSA tests, use of the fusion ProstaScint scan, and advances in intermittent ADT. It is particularly strong in the ADT area, an area covered only superficially in many other books.
All this moves treatment to a higher level: beyond lightly informed preference supported only by overall odds and side effects based on old data, to intelligent decisions based on the patient's particular biology, then on preference.
This book will also keep current as it references key web sites that track developments and provide advice to patients.
I anticipate the Primer will lead to a breakthrough advance in treatment decision-making. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Place to Start 27. Mai 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book does an outstanding job of covering the treatment options for prostate cancer. It is a particularly good place to start for a newly diagnosed man (or his wife or family members) in learning about the disease. The clear readable presentation and excellent color illustrations set this book above others on the same subject. It should be required reading for the newly diagnosed man.
