Prostate Cancer Prevention (Recent Results in Cancer Research)

Prostate cancer is by far the most common cancer in men and the second leading cause of death due to cancer. It comprises a mixed group of tumours displaying varying clinical behaviour: while some have a very aggressive course, others are rather indolent. Prevention of prostate cancer and discrimination between aggressive and indolent forms are important clinical goals and the acquisition of significant new evidence on means of achieving these aims makes this book particularly timely. A wide range of topics are covered by leading authorities in the field. The biology and natural history of prostate cancer are reviewed and the role of lifestyle and dietary factors, assessed. Detailed attention is paid to risk prediction biomarkers and to the role of novel high-throughput nucleic acid-based technologies in improving risk prediction and thereby allowing tailored approaches to cancer prevention. Potential means of chemoprevention of prostate cancer are also reviewed in depth, covering the very positive new data on the impact of aspirin as well as evidence regarding 5α-reductase inhibitors, DFMO and lycopene. Guidance is provided on the differentiation of aggressive from indolent disease and the policy and research implications of recent findings are examined. This book will be of interest to both clinicians and researchers.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy: Principles and Practices

This book serves as a practical guide for the use of stereotactic body radiation therapy in clinics. On the basis of more than 10 years of clinical experience with lung cancer, liver cancer and other cancers, a remarkable volume of knowledge has been accumulated. At the same time, great progress in techniques has been achieved. Various new fixing apparatuses, new respiratory regulation techniques, new dose fractionation schedules and new image-guided radiation therapy machines have been developed. This book reviews the history of those developments and reports on various types of toxicities. Review of recent clinical studies is also included. The authors were key members of the JCOG 0403 clinical trials on stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for both inoperable and operableT1N0M0 primary lung cancer. Readers will learn of the superior outcomes obtained with SBRT for lung cancer and other cancers in terms of local control and toxicities. With its practical focus, this book will benefit radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation therapists and senior nurses as well as medical oncologists and surgical oncologists who are interested in radiotherapy.

Mitochondria: The Anti- cancer Target for the Third Millennium

This book will be focused on mitochondria as very promising targets for anti-cancer drugs, yet to be fully exploited. It will contain chapters focused on aspects of basic research as well as on clinical relevance, which will be written by specialists in the field. That the role of mitochondria in human pathologies goes beyond the neoplastic diseases will be documented by a chapter of the role of mitochondria in Friedreich’s ataxia.

Breast Cancer: Molecular Genetics, Pathogenesis, and Therapeutics (Contemporary Cancer Research)

“Extensive information about a multitude of topics associated with breast cancer genetics and possible causative factors in breast cancer progression is provided. This book also includes both a generalized overview of breast cancer therapeutics as well as the most current thoughts on experimental treatment ideas. The chapter, “Hereditary Breast Cancer Genes,” is extremely well covered…the chapter on psychological issues surrounding genetic testing is particularly strong because of its use of case examples. The discussion of surgical and chemotherapeutic approaches is thorough and cohesive…this is an excellent resource for researchers in the field…This book stands out in that it provides a comprehensive approach to the relevant advances in breast cancer research as they apply to therapeutics, an approach that has been missing in the recent literature.” -Doody’s Health Sciences Book Review Journal

“. . .successfully steers between the impossibility of a comprehensive book on all aspects of breast cancer and the undesirability of a quasi-random selection of isolated topics. The chapters are clearly written, succinct, and eminently readable for the physician as well as the molecular biologist. The book is well referenced and summarizes a wealth of data in a straight-forward and digestible manner. . .For the research scientists, epidemiologists, and clinician, this book will serve as an interesting and useful guide to the coming era.”-The New England Journal of Medicine

“The book has 25 chapters divided into 3 sections dealing with etiology and cancer genes, diagnosis, therapeutics and drug resistance, and environmental risk factors. Each chapter is densely packed with data. . .Lerman and Peshkin have written a very important chapter about the psychosocial aspects of genetic testing. Several case reports help make in the information relevant. . .The book will be extremely helpful to the graduate student and laboratory investigator who wants to have a single source with good references.”-Oncology

“It represents a state-of-the-art review of current and future research directions in breast cancer treatment,…The references are extensive…the translational provides relevant clinical correlations whenever possible. Another strength is that most chapters conclude with a summary of the salient points….provides important information for pathologists who are heavily involved with breast cancer.”-Modern Pathology

“…an exhaustively encyclopedic text on the topic, focusing on the research of its development, causes and treatments. It is well written and concise, and extensively covers all issues that research scientists and medical consultants might encounter in the study of breast cancer.” -The Journal of Family Practice

“…an excellent state-of-the-art summary of breast cancer research and treatment.”-Anticancer Research

“…The editor has brought together an impressive collection of specialists to provide a broad range of subjects. The book is extensively referenced and individual chapters are thorough and detailed in the coverage of the topics. In this respect, the book meets its aims admirably….this is a good reference book and does have have something for clinicians as well as basic scientists, It will be a useful source of information for those involved in breast cancer research and treatment.”- Human Genetics
