Bacterial Therapy of Cancer: Methods and Protocols - Methods in Molecular Biology 1409 (Hardback)Robert Hoffman (editor)
- We can order this
explores the evolution of bacterial cancer therapy and describes the modern
techniques used in therapy today. The chapters in this book cover a broad range
of topics such as the development of tumor-targeting Salmonella typhimurium A1-R, a microfluidic device for precise quantification of the interactions between
tumor-targeting bacteria and tumor tissue, non-invasive in vivo imaging of
bacteria-mediated cancer therapy using bio-luminescent bacteria, methods to
achieve remote-control of therapeutic gene expression in tumor-targeting
bacteria, and cell-cycle decoy of cancer cells resistant to cytotoxic drugs to
drug sensitivity by S. typhimurium A1-R. This book concludes with
a chapter on the future potential of bacterial therapy of cancer. Written in
the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format,
chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the
necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory
protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Thorough and informative, Bacterial Therapy of Cancer: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for anyone who is interested in cancer and bacterial therapy.
