Providing the physician with a solid understanding of molecular biology and its applications for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, this book reviews the basic molecular and other principles of cancer medicine, including controls of cell growth and senescence, carcinogenesis, tumorogenesis, and epidemiology. The second part of the book gives clinical examples to demonstrate the basic science principles, including chapters on leukaemia, colon cancer, and breast cancer. A chapter on molecular diagnostics and screening plus a chapter on new molecular anti-cancer therapies allow readers an insight into current therapies as well as the future of molecular cancer medicine. A useful glossary defines new terminology at-a-glance. Written in a user-friendly, conversational format, this text will be welcomed by all physicians eager to sharpen their own understanding of molecular cancer medicine as well as to help them provide patients with balanced information on the advances and limitations of current treatment options.
