Tailoring treatment for individual breast cancers is no longer a dream and is now the main goal for current research. This book gives an overview of the most recent techniques, agents and approaches for breast cancer and the individualization of treatment. Particular attention is given to organ-specific tailored approaches, specific populations, patients' preferences and rehabilitation. Contributions from experts focus on the biomedical research behind the transfer of molecular biology knowledge into the clinical management of patients. This has led to increased survival as well as improved quality of life. The book gives an overview of the latest achievements in breast cancer and their use in clinical practice.
