Cancer Symptom Science is the first interdisciplinary compilation of research on the mechanisms underlying the expression of cancer-related symptoms. It presents innovations in clinical, animal and in vitro research, research methods in brain imaging, and statistical-descriptive approaches to understanding the mechanistic basis of symptom expression. This volume also provides perspectives from patients, government and industry. By collecting and synthesizing the developing threads of new approaches to understanding cancer-related symptoms, the book promotes a pioneering framework for merging behavioral and biological disciplines to clarify mechanisms of symptom evolution, incorporating new technologies, testing novel agents for symptom control, and improving patient functioning and quality of life both during and after cancer treatment. With an expert editorial team led by Charles S. Cleeland, an internationally-recognized leader in cancer pain assessment and treatment, this is essential reading for surgical, clinical and medical oncologists, academic researchers, and pharmaceutical companies developing new agents to control symptom expression.

This text is of great importance to readers of the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management ...The content is quite timely, and these exceptional editors, who are recognized leaders in the field of cancer symptom research, are to be congratulated for meeting their aims of promoting an interdisciplinary approach to investigating these complex symptoms. The writing and organization are clear, and the information is easily accessible to the reader, with a thorough table of contents and index. This is an essential text for anyone interested in conducting or critiquing cancer symptom research." Journal of Pain and Symptom Management (2011), Judith Paice, PhD, RN, Northwestern University
