Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"...brings together an impressive array of internationally distinguished investigators who are devoted to the study of cytokines and cancer.  Together,, they produce an insightful, comprehensive discussion of cytokines and cancer that will serve as the perfect reference for all those working in the field." -Anticancer Research"This is a collection of papers from a large number of authors on the role of cytokines in the genesis of neoplastic diseases including metastatic spreads and the potential role in therapy. . Chronic cytokine production can contribute to the generation and progression of cancer. Mechanisms involved in this process are described in the many chapters of this volume. The book is highly recommended to all of those involved in the study of neoplastic diseases." (Julian L. Ambrus, The Journal of Medicine, March, 2008)"This new volume in Humana's series will be necessary reading for researchers, oncologists, pharmacologists, radiotherapists." (Tumori, Vol. 93, 2007)
