  • Innate Immune Regulation and Cancer Immunotherapyby Rongfu Wang

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    Innate and adaptive immunity play important roles in immunosurveillance and tumor destruction. However, increasing evidence suggests that tumor-infiltrating immune cells may have a dual function: inhibiting or promoting tumor growth and progression. Although regulatory T (Treg) cells induce immune tolerance by suppressing host immune responses against... more...

  • Cancer Associated Virusesby Erle S. Robertson

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    The acknowledgment that viruses are potent biological factors in driving many cancers have seen a dramatic upsurge in recent years in large part to the success of the human papilloma virus vaccine against invasive cervical carcinomas and followed by the awarding of the noble prize in medicine in 2008 to Dr. Harald zurHausen who identified the link... more...

  • Modeling Tumor Vasculatureby Trachette L. Jackson

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    To profoundly understand biology and harness its intricacies for human benefit and the mitigation of human harm requires cross-disciplinary approaches that incorporate sophisticated computational and mathematical modeling techniques. These integrative strategies are essential to achieve rapid and significant progress in issues, in health and disease,... more...

  • Insulin-like Growth Factors and Cancerby Derek LeRoith

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    This book will detail the history, successes, and failures of targeted therapies for cancer, with a particular focus on IGF systems and cancer. more...

  • Natural Killer T cellsby Masaki Terabe; Jay A. Berzofsky

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    This book will cover primary roles of NKT cells in immunity to cancer, in both mouse tumor models and cancer patients. There are several chapters describing general aspects of NKT cells. more...

  • Cell Signaling & Molecular Targets in Cancerby Malay Chatterjee; Khosrow Kashfi

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    This book provides an overview of critical components of cell signaling machinery and its role in epithelial morphogenesis, proliferation, invasions and angiogenesis in human cancer and discusses novel types of protein kinase pathways. more...

  • Advances in Cancer Stem Cell Biologyby Roberto Scatena; Alvaro Mordente; Bruno Giardina

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    In recent years, cancer stem cells have been recognized as important component in carcinogenesis and they seem to form the basis of many (if not all) tumor types. Cancer stem cells or "cancer cell like stem cells" have been isolated from various cancers of different origin (blood, breast, brain, skin, head and neck, thyroid, cervix, lung,... more...

  • Thyroid Cancerby Glenn D. Braunstein

    Springer 2011; US$ 259.00

    The American Cancer Society recently estimated that about 45,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, with three-quarters occurring in women. The overall 5-year survival rate is about 97 per cent, making it one of the least lethal cancers. We are experiencing an epidemic of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, in part... more...

  • Emergencies in Pediatric Oncologyby Katrin Scheinemann; Allison E. Boyce

    Springer 2011; US$ 69.95

    Pediatric oncology is a considerably complex discipline requiring frequent need for reference material. Emergencies in Pediatric Oncology meets this objective by serving as a concise, practical resource for the hurried physician. Replete with diagrams and written in a clear, succinct style, this title offers an easy-to-read guide especially useful... more...

  • Signaling Pathways in Cancer Pathogenesis and Therapyby David A. Frank

    Springer 2011; US$ 139.00

    In recent years, increasing evidence has suggested that abnormal activation of signaling pathways is a critical event in cancer pathogenesis. In particular, activation of these pathways can lead to inappropriate cellular survival, proliferation, pluripotency, invasion, metastasis, and angiogenesis. Thus, understanding the mechanisms by which signaling... more...
