About this book


In recent years, great strides have been made in the field of cancer research. Now, with Basic Science of Cancer, a range of interrelated topics such as tumor suppressor genes, apoptosis, transcriptional regulation, pharmacology of anticancer drugs, cytogenetic techniques, oncogenes, and signal transduction are thoroughly addressed. Written for oncologists and healthcare professionals, this new comprehensive reference also discusses modern research techniques used to investigate the molecular etiology and treatment of human cancer. Topics are described using nontechnical terms. Together, complete reference listings and over 200 illustrations provide an extensive, yet introductory, look into the complex field of cancer.
