The first comprehensive reference to focus on the molecular development and treatment of the disease, Molecular Oncology of Breast Cancer provides authoritative information across the spectrum of modern breast cancer research and clinical care. Edited by two world-class experts in cancer pathology, drug development, and patient management, with contributions from over 50 experts, this ground-breaking text describes the genes, proteins, and biologic pathways that are being evaluated today and will be tested in the future to derive the molecular signature of each newly diagnosed breast cancer. For the first time, readers can now obtain, in a single volume, up-to-date information on how molecular-based tests are being used to identify predisposition, provide earliest detection, decide classification based on genetic fingerprint and predict therapy-specific outcomes. MOBC includes unique chapters on functional imaging and the impact of targeted therapies on the FDA approval process. This book gives readers vital, up-to-date information on important molecular discoveries that affect the everyday management of the breast cancer patient.
