About this book
mTOR Pathway and mTOR Inhibitors in Cancer Therapy provides an up-to-date survey of the rapidly advancing field of cancer therapy. Our understanding of the mechanisms involved in cancer genesis and progression underwent unprecedented expansion during the last decade, opening a new era of cancer treatment – targeted therapy. The surge in this area results in no small part from studies conducted jointly by basic health scientists and clinical investigators. It is our hope that this book will help foster even further collaboration between investigators in these two disciplines. In this work, experts in TOR signaling have contributed in two thematic areas: mTOR Signaling and Cancer Therapy (chapters 1 - 8) and Therapeutic Targeting Downstream of mTOR (chapter 9 – 13). All chapters of mTOR Pathway and mTOR Inhibitors in Cancer Therapy are completely new or have been extensively updated by their authors; and we are indebted to all authors who have exemplified the links between these 2 thematic areas.
