    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 81.73

    The surgical resection of a major portion of the liver for cancer of this viscus has long been neglected.

Earlier surgeons were intimidated... more...

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 116.76

    There is a great deal of experimental work leading to the conclusion that immuno­ suppression of any kind increases susceptibility to clinical or viral carcinogenesis.

    This book really ought to be read on vacation, just for enjoyment. Granted, cancer is, literally, a deadly serious matter, and cancer research is primarily a part of medicine with Hippocrates in its back­ ground. Yet, cancer research is also natural science, and as such it yields the joys and sorrows of any science. The cancer problem is also a brain... more...

  • The Etiology of Human Breast Cancerby A.N. Papaioannou

  • Diagnosis and Therapy of Malignant Lymphomaby K. Musshoff

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 116.76
