Review quote

From the reviews: "In this detailed and up-to-date book, leaders in prostate cancer research review the current knowledge of genetic pathways and major molecular aberrations involved in prostate cancer as well as the treatment of the disease. ... The figures and tables are clear and provide essential additional information. ... the editors and authors have succeeded in clearly summarizing the most important recent advances in prostate cancer research, and the book will interest urologists, medical oncologists, and prostate cancer researchers."

Back cover copy

Award winning authors present a comprehensive review of new perspectives in prostate cancer research and open up new directions in the clinical management of prostate cancer. In, "Prostate Cancer: Signaling Networks, Genetics, and New Treatment Strategies," the authors focus on the biology, genetics, molecular signaling networks in the disease process, and recent advances in the treatment of prostate cancer. This state-of-the-art title provides key insights into cutting edge advances in prostate cancer research, such as laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, and offers a critical evaluation and discussion of opportunities for development of novel therapies for prostate cancer. Clinical trials that have not been covered or evaluated in any other books currently available are also discussed. Invaluable to physicians and researchers, "Prostate Cancer: Signaling Networks, Genetics, and New Treatment Strategies" provides a comprehensive translational resource as well as an important source of information for prostate cancer patients.show more
