Compiling significant advances from more than a decade of research, this text presents breakthroughs in the prevention, treatment, and control of cancer-exploring the origin, function, and behavior of cancerous cells and promoting the development of effective therapeutics for common malignancies of the breast, lung, prostate, and gastrointestinal tract, as well as other major systems of the body.

  • the characteristics of promoting agents and environmental carcinogens
  • host-tumor relationships
  • endocrine and stromal responses
    and provides
  • current strategies to halt disease progression
  • additional tables, drawings, and micrographs
  • an extended list of glossary terms
