David Fisher, MD, PhD, and an authoritative panel of academic, cutting-edge researchers review and summarize the current state of the field. Describing the broad roles of tumor suppressors from a perspective based in molecular biology and genetics, the authors detail the major suppressors and the pathways they regulate, including cell cycle progression, stress responses, apoptosis, and responses to DNA damage. Leading-edge and forward-looking, Tumor Suppressor Genes in Human Cancer illuminates what is currently known of tumor suppressor genes and their regulation, work that is already beginning to revolutionize cancer target elucidation, drug discovery, and treatment design.

Editorial Reviews

"...brings together a panel of experts in the field of cancer biology, with almost half of the authors from Harvard Medical School. ...describes he role of tumor suppressor genes in human cancer. It details a current view of these important genes and highlights clinically relevant aspects of the strides made in the field of tumor suppressor biology. ...The book is well organized with most chapters having figures and tables to clarify the points made in the text. It is well referenced....This book provides readable, yet thorough, coverage of the field of tumor suppressor biology." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
