Hot Topics in... is a series of journals aimed at giving medical doctors, health care workers, and every concerned person up-to-date
information about major and current topics in various medical fields.
Every issue has recent and comprehensive information on specific subjects, including recently developed drugs, clinical trials, new diagnostic approaches, epidemics of the disease, and treatments.
Each issue will focus on various aspects of a major topic, sometimes seen from different viewpoints.
This approach should lead the specialist and the general practitioner alike to a critical appreciation of real-life, clinical situations. This will help during the diagnoses and treatment, especially in situations that do not fit the "typical" pattern as commonly reported by multicenter, clinical trials.
The articles are written by leading experts in their fields, and each issue is reviewed and edited by an internationally recognized opinion leader.
The domains covered by the series span viral hepatitis to cardiology, respiratory medicine, oncology, neurology, HIV and other retroviruses, hypertension and psychiatry. And new fields are being added all the time. In order to make the information easy to understand for all professionals worldwide, the series is often available in other languages as well, and is reviewed and edited by native speakers.
We hope that readers will find this series both interesting and invaluable in improving patient's care.
Enjoy your reading!
