Description

Principles of Cancer Biology,is an engaging book focused on providing readers with a “big picture” view of cancer. Author Lewis Kleinsmith has written an instructional text focusing on key concepts for a general audience. Each chapter contains a list of suggested readings that expand the detail as needed. The text also emphasizes the scientific evidence that underlies cancer biology, and teaches readers to think critically about this evidence- as there are constantly new “breakthroughs” and reports in this field. For readers who need the review, there are brief reviews of several topics related to DNA replication and repair, cell division, cell signaling, and inheritance patterns in chapters where these subjects are relevant. By including these reviews, the text is both accessible and engaging to a broad audience of readers who are studying cancer biology for the first time, as well as an interested general audience. What Is Cancer, Profile of a Cancer Cell, How Cancers Spread, Identifying the Causes of Cancer, Chemicals and Cancer, Radiation and Cancer, Infectious Agents and Cancer, Heredity and Cancer, Oncogenes, Tumor Suppressor Genes and Cancer Overview, Cancer Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment, Preventing Cancer, Main Types of Cancer, Human Carcinogens. For all readers interested in the big picture view of cancer.
