About this book


Award winning authors present a comprehensive review of new perspectives in prostate cancer research and open up new directions in the clinical management of prostate cancer. In, "Prostate Cancer: Signaling Networks, Genetics, and New Treatment Strategies", the authors focus on the biology, genetics, molecular signaling networks in the disease process, and recent advances in the treatment of prostate cancer. This state-of-the-art title provides key insights into cutting edge advances in prostate cancer research, such as laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, and offers a critical evaluation and discussion of opportunities for development of novel therapies for prostate cancer. Clinical trials that have not been covered or evaluated in any other books currently available are also discussed. Invaluable to physicians and researchers, "Prostate Cancer: Signaling Networks, Genetics, and New Treatment Strategies" provides a comprehensive translational resource as well as an important source of information for prostate cancer patients.
