This richly-illustrated atlas-like book provides a foundation for the biological and molecular understanding of how the mammary gland develops and how breast cancer originates. The main goal is to comprehensively review in ten chapters fundamental knowledge in breast cancer. New paradigms are described in which induction of differentiation in the mammary gland can promote prevention and cure of breast cancer. The text is extremely helpful both for clinicians treating patients and researchers looking for new avenues of development.

From the reviews:

"This book provides the scientific basis for a new paradigm according to which breast cancer prevention and treatment should be developed. The book is unique in that it is based on an understanding of the developmental pattern of the breast in rodents and humans." (Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, Vol. 58, 2004)

"This is a comprehensive and detailed textbook which covers all the fundamental areas of knowledge on breast cancer. ... This text provides an excellent reference book for anyone involved in this field ... . For those wanting an in-depth knowledge of this rapidly expanding field, this is easy to read and tackles complex theories very successfully with excellent illustrations to all chapters." (Erika Denton, RAD Magazine, September, 2004)

"Molecular Basis of Breast Cancer provides a window through which to view some future strategies in the prevention of breast cancer. This richly illustrated book has a unique focus and original perspective. ... The broad summary of the scientific literature on this area of research strongly adds value to the book." (Robert B. Dickson, The New England Journal of Medicine, Issue 9, 2004)
