Cancer in Children is the first volume in this new series, sponsored by the DICC, on the treatment of cancer. The editors and authors feel strongly that more standardization is needed on a worldwide basis in cancer therapy. This, of course, is only possible if experts from all countries subscribe to a joint policy of making their treatment designs available to practising oncologists all over the world. Current Treatment of Cancer will discuss all the equipment and methods now in use in cancer therapy. It will cover all types of cancer, thus providing the reader with comprehensive information on cancer manage ment. The appearance of a book on paediatric oncology as the first in the series is intentional: in recent decades there has been a tremendous improvement in the treatment of cancer in children, and there is hope for even further success in this fight. We are convinced that this book and the series it is introducing will help us to make a concerted response to the challenge of cancer.
