From the editorial review of Amazon.com:
This up-to-date and comprehensive CD-ROM provides a superb collection of official Federal government documents on rare cancers: signs and symptoms, diagnosis, lab tests, treatment and management options, and ongoing clinical research. Every aspect of the disease is thoroughly covered. Cancers covered include: pheochromocytoma, adrenocortical carcinoma, parathyroid cancer, malignant thymoma, extracranial germ cell tumor, extragonadal germ cell, and gestational trophoblastic tumor.
For patients, practical information is provided in clearly written patient education documents. For medical professionals, doctor references and texts have detailed technical information and clinical background material. Documents from the National Cancer Institute, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are included. In addition to disease-specific information, there is extensive coverage of the broad subject of cancer and its prevention and treatment along with current cancer research projects.
A unique feature is the inclusion of the results of a database search using the Combined Health Information Database (CHID).
Since navigating the Internet to find additional non-governmental medical information can be confusing and difficult, we've also provided our exclusive "Guide to Leading Medical Websites" with links to 80 of the best sites for general health and medical information! By using weblinks built into the documents reproduced on the CD-ROM, you can quickly and easily check for the latest clinical updates directly from the government.
In all, the disc has over 45,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software - allowing direct viewing on Windows and Apple Macintosh systems. Reader software is included on the CD.
