While cancer survival rates have increased steadily over the last several decades, particularly among younger patients, the more aggressive forms of treatment that have made this possible often compromise a cancer patient's ability to later have biological children. In the past, pregnancy after cancer was largely unheard of. Today it is increasingly a possibility due to high survivorship rates in general and emerging reproductive technologies that give patients and their families options at the time of diagnosis to ensure a patient's future fertility (cryopreservation of ovarian tissue).…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
While cancer survival rates have increased steadily over the last several decades, particularly among younger patients, the more aggressive forms of treatment that have made this possible often compromise a cancer patient's ability to later have biological children. In the past, pregnancy after cancer was largely unheard of. Today it is increasingly a possibility due to high survivorship rates in general and emerging reproductive technologies that give patients and their families options at the time of diagnosis to ensure a patient's future fertility (cryopreservation of ovarian tissue). Oncofertility has emerged as an interdisciplinary field bridging biomedical, social sciences and examines issues regarding an individual's fertility options, choice and goals in light of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Written by leaders in this evolving field, the volume covers various aspects: medical, ethical and social. TOC:Introduction.- Emergence of a new discipline: Oncofertility.- New methods in cryopreservation.- New methods in cryopreservation.- New methods in cryopreservation.- Bioengineering the ovarian follicle.- Fertility management for women with a fertility-threatening disease.- Assessing pediatric cancer fertility.- Families, communication and a diagnosis of pediatric cancer.- New Directions in the Social Sciences.- Male Cancer Patients and Infertility.- Provision of Options for Fertility Patients.- Pricing the Acquisition of Fertility Preservation Options.- Law, Reproductive Technologies, and Oncofertility.- Pediatric Oncology.- Medical Ethics and Oncofertility.- Oncofertility: New Opportunities/Directions for Young Scholars.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "This is a compilation of current research on the preservation of fertility in young cancer patients facing gonadotoxic treatment regimens. ... While they have targeted this book at helping to train and educate oncologists and reproductive specialists caring for young cancer patients, it may also be interesting and important to people in a variety of other fields including those in reproductive biology, biomedical ethics, sociology, and health policy. ... an interesting and important book for anyone involved in the care of young cancer patients." (Emily S. Jungheim, Doody's Review Service, January, 2008) "This book is the first of its kind on the topic of oncofertility - a new discipline uniting reproductive biologists with oncologists to provide options for men, women, and children with a fertility-threatening cancer diagnosis. The book spans disciplines from cutting edge research to clinical care, bioethics, and medical guidelines. There are chapters for the specialists and chapters for patients who wish to read stories about those who have faced fertility-impacting diseases." This is a terrific book and a must read! Linda C.
