This book provides a simplified, yet comprehensive, overview of the signalling pathways operating between and inside cells, which will help younger oncologists find their way in the labyrinth of signalling pathways and in the multitude of signals and signal receptors, transducers and effectors that contribute to oncogenesis.

This comprehensive reference text is based on the master's courses delivered by Prof. Jacques Robert to graduate students at the University of Bordeaux, France. It includes a large number of colour schemas and figures that have been improved year after year for educational purposes. Signalling pathways are described individually and in depth, but without ignoring the multiplicity of interconnections and crosstalk. The presentation of each pathway is followed by a brief description of the alterations found in cancers as well as of the targeted pharmacological approaches that can be used to prevent or overcome the consequences of these oncogenic alterations. The basic mechanisms of molecular biology at the DNA replication, RNA transcription and protein activity levels are presented in a series of didactic annexes, enabling readers to better understand the alterations in signalling pathways.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Aiming not only at helping the medical oncology community, especially those who are in daily practice, but also the pharmacologists, physicians and scientists in the pharmaceutical industry, this textbook provides a very useful guide. ... Each chapter is followed by selected and updated bibliographic references. This textbook is a very valuable didactic aid to the clinical oncologist and to those in the pharmaceutical industry who are interested in anticancer agents." (Ferdy J. Lejeune, Melanoma Research, Vol. 26, 2016)
