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

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=161737072X]

“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
