This book offers an up-to-date, practical guide to hypofractionated SRT for brain and spine metastases, as well as other tumor types such as glioma and benign tumors. The recent development of hypofractionated SRT, which calls for 1 to 5 fractions of high dose radiation to be delivered using special equipment, has resulted in the need for education on practice guidelines. This how-to guide emphasizes the pros and cons of hypofractionated SRT compared to single fraction radiosurgery.
Provides an authoritative source of practical information on stereochemistry and its impact on drug development. Unlike other books which focus on synthesis, this work explores analytical, pharmacological, and regulatory topics in dealing with the theory and practice of stereochemistry in the pharmaceutical industry today. It specifically addresses how the body metabolizes chiral molecules; the varying effects of different chiral molecules; and provides detailed evaluations of current seperation techniques. Includes regulatory information.
