About this book


The World Health Organisation have reported that each year on a global basis there are over 8 million deaths from cancer. This is 13% of all deaths. As well as those who die, there are many who are being treated for cancer. Some cancers, hitherto deemed to be incurable, can now be cured. Part of the overall package of healthcare related to cancer is the application of biomarkers.  Biomarkers can be used not only to determine stages and effects of cancer, but also to aid treatments regimes. Biomarkers in Cancer combines detailed information on cancer types and the use of biological indicators. It covers the latest knowledge, trends and applications.  It links conventional approaches with new platforms
