About the book

Soft tissue sarcomas are relatively rare tumors that affect different organs of the body as fibrous, adipose, muscular, synovial with cartilage and bone-forming tissues, blood and lymphatic vessels, in addition to nervous system. They are usually aggressive with a bad prognostic value. The treatment of soft tissue tumors is multidisciplinary and involves surgery with radio and chemo-therapies, in addition to a variety of newly discovered targeted and immuno-therapies. This book was planned with an intention to highlight all the strategic novelties in the diagnostic and therapeutic fields that have made the treatment of soft tissue tumors more specific and precise according to its molecular profiling.

The authors are cordially invited to express their knowledge and awareness in this domain, to share their unpublished clinical trials pertaining to any type of STT, to analyse any new data emerged from their studies and to display their information in a methodical way, so that we may present an original book with novel and useful medical material.

About the editor

Hamid Daaboul

Surrey University

Hamid Elia Daaboul, MD, PhD is an ASCO active member and researcher in the mode of action of new potential anticancer molecules in the Lebanese American University, Lebanon. He is a practicing Oncologist and also a former head of department of Oncology in Haroun Hospital, Lebanon. He earned his PhD in Oncology from Surrey University, London. He studied the mode of action of β-2-himachalen-6-ol, a new anticancer molecule, and succeeded in identifying its apoptotic effect via the inhibition of the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK/ERK) and the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K/AKT) cellular signalling pathways. He is also engaged in clinical trials of other potentially active anticancer molecules.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Nino Popovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
