Molecular Mechanisms of Cancer (Paperback)Georg F. Weber (author)
- We can order this
This book describes molecular processes whose deregulation is important in the formation of tumors. The material is developed from basic cell signaling pathways to their roles in the clinical manifestation of specific cancers. Topics covered include molecular events intrinsic to tumor cells (leading to growth deregulation, extended lifespan, and the ability to invade surrounding tissue), protective mechanisms that prevent transformation (including DNA repair and epigenetic regulation), tumor-host interactions (with the endocrine system, the immune system, and blood vessel formation), and the underlying molecular defects of individual cancers.

From the reviews:
"The book under review is definitely the best book on Molecular Biology of Cancer. ... It is very well written, clear, with several examples and of easy comprehension. I suggest this book to you if you are interested in to study all the tricks of the molecular mechanisms of cancer. ... The books is a necessary reading for all medical and biological students interested in Cancer and it will become the reference on the subject."
