Systems Biology in Cancer Research and Drug Discovery provides a unique collection of chapters, by world-class researchers, describing the use of integrated systems biology and network modeling in the cancer field where traditional tools have failed to deliver expected promise. This book touches four applications/aspects of systems biology (i) in understanding aberrant signaling in cancer (ii) in identifying biomarkers and prognostic markers especially focused on angiogenesis pathways (iii) in unwinding microRNAs complexity and (iv) in anticancer drug discovery and in clinical trial design. This book reviews the state-of-the-art knowledge and touches upon cutting edge newer and improved applications especially in the area of network modeling. It is aimed at an audience ranging from students, academics, basic researcher and clinicians in cancer research. This book is expected to benefit the field of translational cancer medicine by bridging the gap between basic researchers, computational biologists and clinicians who have one ultimate goal and that is to defeat cancer.

Breast cancer is a malignant tumour that has developed from cells of the breast. A malignant tumour is a group of cancer cells that may invade surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it as well. The main types of breast cancer are ductal carcinoma in situ, invasive ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma in situ, invasive lobular carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, and Paget's disease of the nipple . About 1 of 8 women will get it in her lifetime. This new book presents state-of-the-art research in this fast-moving field.

Cancer is a group of different diseases (over 100) characterised by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Cancer can arise in many sites and behave differently depending on its organ of origin. If a cancer spreads (metastasises), the new tumour bears the same name as the original (primary) tumour. Significant progress has been made in recent years in the battle against cancer and in understanding its underlying biological mechanisms. This research progress has resulted in many experimental treatments and cures which establish hope for wide-spread cures. This book brings together important research from around the world in this frontal field.

Seminomas account for about 30-40% of all testicular tumours. These are usually is found in men in their 30s and 40s. The condition is usually localised to the testes, although in about 25% of cases it has spread to lymph nodes. Non-seminomas account for 60% of all testicular tumours; subcategories of these tumours are listed below. Non-seminoma tumours often contain more than one of the following cell types: Testicular cancer is an abnormal, rapid, and invasive growth of cancerous (malignant) cells in the testicles. Embryonal carcinoma (about 20% of testicular cancers) occurs in 20-30 year olds and is highly malignant. It grows rapidly and spreads to the lung and liver. Yolk sac tumour (about 60% of all testicular cancers in young boys). Teratomata (about 7% of testicular cancers in adult men and 40% in young boys). Choriocarcinoma is rare. Stromal cell tumours are a kind of tumour that is made of Leydig cells (testosterone-secreting cells), Sertoli cells (cells where sperm matures), and granulose cells. These tumours account for only 3-4% of all testicular tumours. However, they do make up nearly 20% of all childhood testicular tumours. These tumours may secrete a hormone -- estradiol -- that can cause one of the symptoms of testicular cancer, gynecomastia (excessive development of breast tissue). This book presents leading-edge research in the field.

Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer in the world and a major cause of death. This new book brings together stellar research from around the world. The two main types of primary lung cancer small cell and non-small cell are examined. The book's scope encompasses the three main types of non-small cell lung cancer: squamous cell carcinoma which is the commonest type of lung cancer and develops in the cells which line the airways; adenocarcinoma develops from the cells which produce mucus in the lining of the airways; large cell carcinoma gets its name from the large, rounded cells that are seen when they are examined under the microscope. About 1 in 5 lung cancers are small cell, the rest non-small cell. Causes of lung cancer are primarily smoking, but include as well exposure to radon, asbestos, uranium, arsenic, and certain petroleum products. Research and new drugs are appearing with increasing frequency in this field.
