Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is the volume 174 in the Recent Results in Cancer Research series. . This is an international approach, with the considerably varied perspectives of the 75 authors. . Cancer Prevention is useful for physicians in epidemiology and for oncologists who design and participate in clinical trials. . Basic scientists (non-MDs) and graduate students in molecular biology, genetics, epidemiology, and public health may find this book interesting." (James R. Egner, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (1), July, 2007)
