    Book details

Cancer research is now an interdisciplinary effort requiring a basic knowledge of commonly used terms, facts, issues, and concepts. This interdisciplinary book meets this need, providing an authoritative overview to the field. It presents many of the molecules and mechanisms generally important in human cancers and examines a broad, but exemplary, selection of cancers. In addition, cancer research has now reached a critical stage, in which the accumulated knowledge on molecular mechanisms is gradually translated into improved prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. This book summarizes the state, pitfalls, and potential of these efforts.

Review Text

  • By E. P. Kourla on August 20, 2013

    This book has good syllogisms concerning the cause(s) of carcinogenesis including some thoughts on cell information networks , but it is still in this approach very primitive , but more advanced than other "classical" texts of molecular biology of cancer...Thinking on Molecular Carcinogenesis and the Molecular Biology of Oncology TOGETHER with the Critical field of Molecular Informatics is Thinking towards the correct direction(s) to effiently approach the solution(s) of Oncological problem...Now, Let try to Think further in the Top problem of Oncology...I think further serious scientific Thinking and efforts must be allocatedto the THEORY! OF ONCOLOGY (Remember the Theory provides the compass forthe correct direction(s) of applied research, and I think it is mainlybecause of lack of a good Theory of oncology that the problems ofoncology have not solved Efficiently)This author since 1983 has thought of "An UNIFIED Theory of Oncology"based mainly in molecular informatics(perhaps the first article also inmolecular informatics),etc, and he presented a summary of his theory underthe title "A note of the essay on cell abnormal multiplication rate" inthe 7th European Interuniversity Symposium, help 17-20 July 1997 inThessaloniki,Greece. This author perhaps may be considered that hediscovered the field of "MOLECULAR INFORMATICS" with his scientificarticle on an UNIFIED Theory of Oncology , since 1983, but since then Hugeproblems was created against this reviewer making very difficult topromote his fundamentally original scientific ideas and thinking... Letdefine in my understanding the field of "Molecular Informatics" as"Molecular Informatics" we may understand information network(s) which iscreated by molecule(s) carrying information. This is my originaldefinition of the field of "Molecular Informatics".From: Joseph-Christos Kondylakis , on day Thusday-20-August-2013e-mail: [email protected]

    The author goes into great detail on which genes and proteins are affected when cancers are found in humans and how they relate to DNA mutations resulting in human cancers. Unlike much literature in the field, the author focuses on the molecular biology of humans, not surragates such as rodents. There is also an excellent chapter on how contemporary analytical techniques can be used to affirm these biological effects in humans.

    This text is higly informative and readable. Highly recommended for a student of the biology of human cancers. This advanced text gives an overview of the broad range of signaling pathways and mechanisms involved in the formation and progression of tumors. Suitable for graduate students before they embark on a journey exploring the molecular complexities of cancer. Excellent preparatory text for beginning basic science researchers or clinicians who wish to embark cancer research.
