Description

This volume brings together the key research issues in clinical and laboratory science relating to metastasis in prostate cancer. It is especially suitable for those in the field, whether physicians and/or scientists, and whether in active research or in training, who wish to broaden their understanding, with regard to their own discipline, and also to another. It is also a resource for those whose research is in metastasis, but in diseases other than prostate cancer. The intention of this volume is to help to empower those who seek to further exploit the potential for translational research in this field. Written by a team of internationally recognised experts, the scope ranges from the most fundamental aspects of the molecular biology of metastasis, to the patient in the clinic. The therapeutic approaches range from conventional drug design to immunogene therapy. Prostate cancer is an area of intense research effort, and this book provides a window on contemporary research in this important area.
