Molecular Approach to Cancer Management

Molecular Approach to Cancer Management discusses molecular mechanisms of cancer initiation, growth and secondary spread, emphasizing how this information can be used to devise new modes of treatment of cancer, especially in combatting secondary spread. The book addresses the basic concepts relating to cancer biology, the genetic determinants, and the signal transduction cascades associated with tumor growth, EMT, stem cell maintenance and propagation, and invasion and metastasis. The salient features of the signaling systems that are amenable to targeted manipulation are emphasized to facilitate research and development in the design of novel therapies and for the planning of new trials. This book is the only unique volume with coverage of topics that target therapy. As such, it is a valuable source for cancer researchers, molecular oncologists and members of the biomedical field who are interested in knowing more about molecular approaches to cancer therapy. Covers all relevant topics with a defined aim of targeted therapy Encompasses the basic aspects of cancer invasion and metastasis Discusses signaling systems operating in normal cells and their deregulation in cancer cells Directs attention to the foci in signaling systems that can be targeted with a new and conventional drug-based approach

Cancer, which has become the second-most prevalent health issue globally, is essentially a malfunction of cell signaling. Understanding how the intricate signaling networks of cells and tissues allow cancer to thrive - and how they can be turned into potent weapons against it - is the key to managing cancer in the clinic and improving the outcome of cancer therapies. In their ground-breaking textbook, the authors provide a compelling story of how cancer works on the molecular level, and how

Neuroblastoma (NBL) is the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood, with about 700 new cases of neuroblastoma seen each year in the United States. The 5-year survival rate for children with high-risk NBL is only 50-60%, and this survival rate has not improved over the last 10 years. High-risk patients receive multimodality treatment, including chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, biologic therapy and immunotherapy, all of which are associated with significant morbidity. Recent years have seen many advances in treatment of neuroblastoma, including

Death from breast cancer began a decline in the 1990's. One widely accepted reason for this reduction was the discovery that breast cancer can be uniquely defined at the molecular level by oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes including, but not limited to, EGFR, AKT, ErbB2, PI3K, TP53, BRCA1/2, and PTEN. These genes and potential mutations within, can drive constitutive activation of aberrant signaling that can induce and sustain tumorigenesis. More importantly, these genes represent new avenues for possible markers

Where do you begin to look for a recent, authoritative article on the diagnosis or management of particular malignancy? The few general oncology text books are generally out of date. Single papers in specialized journals are informative but seldom comprehensive; these are more often preliminary reports on a very limited number of patients. Certain general journals fre quently publish good in-depth reviews of cancer topics, and published sym posium lectures are often the best overviews available. Unfortunately, these reviews and
