About these proceedings


Pathobiology of Human Germ Cell Neoplasia is a state-of-the-art compendium on a very recent branch of tumor biology. It offers an awareness and understanding of germ cell tumors: from the earliest stages to their va- rious differentiations. Original data for this volume was supplied by experts in the fields of pathology, developmental biology, genetics, molecular biology and other related fields. This compilation of knowledge provides information necessary to persons working in clinical and preclinical areas.
