Zusammenfassung
From the reviews: "This is the volume 174 in the Recent Results in Cancer Research series. ... This is an international approach, with the considerably varied perspectives of the 75 authors. ... Cancer Prevention is useful for physicians in epidemiology and for oncologists who design and participate in clinical trials. ... Basic scientists (non-MDs) and graduate students in molecular biology, genetics, epidemiology, and public health may find this book interesting." (James R. Egner, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (1), July, 2007)
