"Introduction to Cancer Biology is a short primer on how cancers develop and grow. The aim of this book is to provide a gentle exploration of the fundamental concepts in a easy-to-understand format, using examples and key figures for illustration. It is written in a style to help the reader understand the six basic principles that inform our current understanding of cancer, at the molecular, cellular and physiological level. The text can be used either as a first step towards a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of cancer progression or it can be used as a quick revision guide. It would be suitable for anyone, with or without a background in biology."--Website.

The fourth edition of this classic text provides a thorough, yet concise review of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the transformation of normal into malignant cells, the invasiveness of cancer cells into host tissues, and the metastatic spread of cancer cells in the host organism. It defines the fundamental pathophysiologic changes that occur in tumor tissue and in the host animal or patient. Each chapter discusses the historical development of a field, citing the key experimental advances to the present day, and evaluates the current evidence that best supports or rules out concepts of the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating cancer cell behavior. For all the areas of fundamental cancer research, an effort has been made to relate basic research findings to the clinical disease states. The book is well written and well illustrated, with schematic diagrams and actual research data to demonstrate points made in the text. There is also an extensive, up-to-date bibliography, making the book valuable to scientists, and to physicians, students, and nurses interested in the field of cancer biology. The topics covered include pathologic characterization of human tumors, epidemiology of human cancer, regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation, cellular and molecular phenotypic characteristics of the cancer cell, mechanisms of carcinogenesis, tumor initiation and promotion, viral carcinogenesis, oncogenes and oncogene products, growth factors, chromosomal alterations in cancer, mechanisms of tumor metastasis, host-tumor interactions, fundamental aspects of tumor immunology, and the advances in cancer cell biology that will lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of cancer in the future.

This new edition of Introduction to the Cellular and Molecular Biology of Cancer provides a concise yet comprehensive overview of cancer biology, covering the current status of both research and treatment. For the student or new researcher the breadth of cancer research can appear daunting, yet a broad understanding is essential for translation of laboratory findings into the clinic. Within the broad scope of the book, each topic is reviewed authoritatively by experts in the field, and the accompanying bibliographies allow rapid access to the relevant current literature. The book covers topics extending from the molecular alterations found in cancer cells and their causes to the current range of approaches to treatment. Since the publication of the previous edition in 1997 there has been unprecedented progress in cancer research: this is reflected by an extensive revision of all the material, and the addition of eight new chapters, covering DNA repair, epigenetic events, the cell cycle, cell immortalisation, apoptosis, angiogenesis, animal models, the genome, transcriptome and proteome, radiotherapy and molecular radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and gene therapy. The fourth edition of this popular book will serve as a text for both undergraduate and postgraduate use and also as an introduction for clinicians and scientists new to the field. Book jacket.

The Molecular Biology of Cancer, Stella Pelengaris& Michael Khan This capturing, comprehensive text, extensively revisedand updated for its second edition, provides a detailed overview ofthe molecular mechanisms underpinning the development of cancer andits treatment. “Bench to Bedside”: A key strength of thisbook that sets it apart from general cancer biology references isthe interweaving of all aspects of cancer biology from the causes,development and diagnosis through to the treatment and care ofcancer patients – essential for providing a broader view ofcancer and its impact. The highly readable presentation of a complex field,written by an international panel of researchers, specialists andpractitioners, would provide an excellent text for graduate andundergraduate courses in the biology of cancer, medical studentsand qualified practitioners in the field preparing for higherexams, and for researchers and teachers in the field. For the teaching of cancer biology, special features havebeen included to facilitate this use: bullet points at thebeginning of each chapter explaining key concepts and controversialareas; each chapter builds on concepts learned in previouschapters, with a list of key outstanding questions remaining in thefield, suggestions for further reading, and questions for studentreview. All chapters contain text boxes that provide additional andrelevant information. Key highlights are listed below: An overview of the cancer cell and important newconcepts. Selected human cancers: lung, breast, colorectal, prostate,renal, skin, cervix, and hematological malignancies. Key cellular processes in cancer biology including (a)traditionally important areas such as cell cycle control, growthregulation, oncogenes and tumour suppressors apoptosis, as well as(b) more highly topical areas of apoptosis, telomeres, DNA damageand repair, cell adhesion, angiogenesis, immunity, epigenetics, andthe proteasome. Clinical oncology: In-depth coverage of important concepts suchas screening, risk of cancer and prevention, diagnoses, managingcancer patients from start to palliative care and end-of-lifepathways. Chapters highlighting the direct links between cancer researchand clinical applications. New coverage on how cancer drugs are actually used inspecific cancer patients, and how therapies are developed andtested. Systems Biology and cutting edge research areas covered such asRNA interference (RNAi). Each chapter includes key points, chapter summaries, textboxes, and topical references for added comprehension andreview. Quotations have been used in each chapter to introduce basicconcepts in an entertaining way. Supported by a dedicated website at ahref="http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/pelengaris"www.blackwellpublishing.com/pelengaris/a We should list the great reviews we got for first editionwhich are on the back of the 2nd edition: “A capturing, comprehensive, clearly written andabsolutely accurate introduction into cancer biology…..Thisbook deserves great praise for the readable presentation of thiscomplex field….the true synthesis of bench and bedsideapproaches is marvelously achieved.” Christian Schmidt,Molecular Cell “Chapters address the issues of cancer diagnosis,treatment, and patient care and set the book apart from generalmolecular biology references….This book is applicable to bothgraduate and undergraduate students, and in the context of aresearch laboratory, this book would be an excellent resource as areference guide for scientists at all levels.” V.Emuss,Institute of Cancer Research, London. Also, from the first edition: “Pelengaris, Khan, and the contributing authors are to beapplauded. The Molecular Biology of Cancer is acomprehensive and readable presentation of the many faces of cancerfrom molecular mechanisms to clinical therapies and diagnostics.This book will be welcomed by neophyte students, establishedscientists in other fields, and curious physicians.” -DeanFelsher, Stanford University
