The Molecular Basis of Cancer arms you with the latest knowledge and cutting-edge advances in the battle against cancer. This thoroughly revised, comprehensive oncology reference explores the scientific basis for our current understanding of malignant transformation and the pathogenesis and treatment of this disease. A team of leading experts thoroughly explains the molecular biologic principles that underlie the diagnostic tests and therapeutic interventions now being used in clinical trials and practice. Detailed descriptions of topics from molecular abnormalities in common cancers to new approaches for cancer therapy equip you to understand and apply the complexities of ongoing research in everyday clinical application.


"This is a well-organized and well-written book that improves readers' understanding of the diverse mechanisms involved in cancer risk, growth, and treatments. The book provides a unique experience, uniting basic science with clinical applications to provide an integrated appreciation of the diverse molecular biology of cancer. It should be in the library of anyone interested in cancer research and treatment."-Karen L Reckamp, MD, MS(City of Hope) Doody Review: 4 stars
