2015 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in Oncology Category!

The Molecular Basis of Cancer arms you with the latest knowledge and cutting-edge advances in the battle against cancer. This thoroughly revised, comprehensive oncology reference explores the scientific basis for our current understanding of malignant transformation and the pathogenesis and treatment of this disease. A team of leading experts thoroughly explains the molecular biologic principles that underlie the diagnostic tests and therapeutic interventions now being used in clinical trials and practice. Detailed descriptions of topics from molecular abnormalities in common cancers to new approaches for cancer therapy equip you to understand and apply the complexities of ongoing research in everyday clinical application.


主要特點
  • Effectively determine the course of malignancy and design appropriate treatment protocols by understanding the scientific underpinnings of cancer.
  • Visually grasp and retain difficult concepts easily thanks to a user-friendly format with abundant full-color figures.
  • Find critical information quickly with chapters following a logical sequence that moves from pathogenesis to therapy.
