Transforming Growth Factor- ß in Cancer Therapy, Vols. 1 and 2, provides a compendium of findings about the role of transforming growth factor- ß (TGF- ß) in cancer treatment and therapy. The first volume, Basic and Clinical Biology, is divided into three parts. This volume's companion, Cancer Treatment in Therapy, examines transforming growth factor- ß in other developing and advanced cancers and methods of treatment and therapy.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This volume provides a comprehensive review of TGF-beta regulation, signaling, and cellular function in both normal and tumor biology. . will be of use to individuals interested in the role of TGF-beta in the development of cancer and fibrosis. This will likely benefit readers interested in TGF-beta in the pathogenesis of disease . . also be a resource for those interested in the complex intracellular signaling cascades elicited by TGF-beta in normal and altered cells." (James P Luyendyk, Doody's Review Service, May, 2008)
