About this book


The ever-expanding research on human cancer has resulted in numerous technical and conceptual advances during the last few years. Serological, structural, and biological char­ acterization of human melanoma constitutes one area of research that has received consid­ erable attention from researchers and clinicians and has generated new and exciting infor­ mation. In this volume, we have attempted to assemble work on topics that produced some of the most recent advances. We asked each author to describe and interpret his most cur­ rent research and, whenever possible, to compare and contrast it with work of other inves­ tigators in the field. We have been careful not to impose our viewpoints except in contri­ butions from our own laboratories, since we want to provide the reader with as many divergent and sometimes opposing viewpoints as feasible. Therefore, we have not been overly concerned with overlaps in some individual topics. We hope that this volume will provide the reader with a well-balanced overview of current problems and ideas in a par­ ticular area of cancer research. We wish to express our thanks to all contributors for their timely and very interesting manuscripts, and we sincerely hope that the reader will enjoy this volume and benefit as much from it as we did.
