The Cancer Handbook, Volume 1
Nature, 2002 - Medical - 1723 pages
Providing a comprehensive overview of scientific and clinical information in cancer research and treatment, The Cancer Handbook bridges the gap between basic science and clinical medicine. With more than 100 chapters written by a distinguished roster of international biomedical experts, this major new reference resource stands out from existing oncology textbooks and reference works in that it covers all general aspects of cancer research.
Covering a wide range of subjects -- from inherited pre-dispositions to drug resistance to the systemic oncology of all major organs and tissues -- the content of The Cancer Handbook has been organized into these major sections:
The Handbook will also include significant coverage of experimental cancers and of major cancer processes and techniques, such as transgenics and knockouts. Written with an emphasis on clarity of style and at a level accessible to undergraduates and informed lay readers, each chapter includes numerous tables and diagrams prepared specifically for this book. It concludes with a list of key sources and a bibliography of recommended further reading. Extensive cross-references allow for comparisons between experimental research and treatment, and indicate where such research is being translated into treatment options. A thorough glossary completes this authoritative new resource.
Available as both a 2-volume print set, and as a fully searchable online database, The Cancer Handbook is an essential reference forundergraduate and graduate students in the field of medicine, clinical physicians, oncologists, and other research scientists in the fields of cancer as well as molecular and cellular biology.
