The obesity pandemic continues to increase on a world-wide basis with over 70% of the United States population being either overweight or obese. Hematologic malignancies have recently been identified among the obesity associated malignancies spanning the lifespan from childhood to the elderly and include leukemia, myeloma, lymphoma and others. In addition to the etiologic association between obesity and hematologic malignancies, the presence of obesity has profound effects on therapy by impacting pharmacokinetics of chemotherapeutic agents, dose, adipocyte metabolism and drug distribution. These may be particularly important in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Another important aspect of the association of obesity with hematologic malignancies is the increased incidence of obesity in children who successfully complete therapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This and other observations indicate important relations between the hematopoietic systems and fat metabolism. This volume on Energy Balance in Hematologic Malignancies will provide an important volume in this series and a basis for better understanding etiology, mechanisms, therapeutics implications and experimental approaches. This volume of energy balance and cancer will focus on the relation of obesity to hematologic malignancies, the epidemiology, potential mechanisms, and thereapeutic considerations including effects on pharmacologic and physical approaches as well as the delayed effects of therapy on energy balance.

Radiation Medicine Rounds is a trinary hard cover periodical designed to provide an up-to- date review of a dedicated radiation medicine topic of interest to clinicians and scientists who are involved in the care of patients receiving radiotherapy. It is intended to serve as both a reference and instructional tool for students, housestaff, fellows, practicing clinicians, medical physicists, cancer biologists, radiobiologists, and interdisciplinary colleagues throughout the oncology spectrum. This issue of Radiation Medicine Rounds discusses the more salient topics surrounding the role of radiation therapy for hematologic malignancies. There are literally dozens of distinct lymphoma subtypes, each with its own unique molecular and clinical features. Although systemic cytotoxic and targeted therapies have improved dramatically, radiation therapy remains an important modality for optimal clinical outcomes. With contributions from nationally recognized experts, Hematologic Malignancies offers an overview of the full spectrum of therapy for hematologic malignancies ranging from lymphoma and leukemia to plasma cell dyscrasias. Recent advances in radiotherapy for hematologic malignancies allow for maintenance of excellent local control with improvements in toxicity achieved through reductions in field sizes, in dose delivered, and increasingly conformal delivery techniques. Hematologic Malignancies provides the practitioner with a current overview of best practices, recent research, and future directions in the management of these complex cancers.
