Cancer presents the past, present, and future of cancer research in a readable and comprehensive format. It begins with a short summary of cell biology and continues with an overview of the way cancer cells work and how researchers have discovered the nature of these cells. The book looks closely at the successes and failures of treatments using high doses of chemo- or radiation therapy; the plight of cancer survivors; recent advances in the use of light-activated compounds, monoclonal antibodies, gene therapy, and stem cells, which have provided powerful methods for dealing with this disease; as well as the extensive research that has been done to determine the causes of different types of cancer. A bibliography, glossary, and index add to this informative and invaluable reference.
