About this book

Introduction

Applications of Biotechnology in Oncology collects key writings by Kewal K. Jain on the most important contributions of biotechnology to cancer research, particularly to the molecular diagnosis of cancer and drug delivery in cancer for personalized management of patients. Basics of various “omics” technologies and their application in oncology are described as oncogenomics and oncoproteomics.  This detailed volume also explores molecular diagnostics, nanobiotechnology, cell and gene therapies, as well as personalized oncology.  With approximately one thousand selected references from recent literature on this topic and numerous tables and figures, Applications of Biotechnology in Oncology serves as an ideal reference for oncologists, scientists involved in research on cancer biology, and physicians in various specialties who deal with cancer.

Reviews

“We suggest this book, as a contribution of relevant scientific value, to a large series of readers, including oncologists, scientists involved in research on cancer biology and physicians involved in the various specialties who deal with cancer; for all of them, this publication may become a reference book in daily work or increase the cultural background. The volume may also be of great interest for students and for all those scientists working in basic and translational research.” (Adriano Anzivino and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 42, 2015)
