Previous volumes in this series have emphasized aspects of The broad array of neoplastic diseases, multiple target cancer progression, tumor invasion and tumor metastasis sites, and patterns of metastasis and dissemination underlie and the importance of these processes to the pathophysiol­ the importance of achieving crucial insights into particular ogy and morbidity of malignant disease. This volume builds neoplasms. An understanding of metastasis and dissemina­ on these earlier themes and emphasizes metastasis/disse­ tion in man remains an essential objective for the design of mination in man.
