From the reviews: "This volume provides a comprehensive review of TGF-beta regulation, signaling, and cellular function in both normal and tumor biology. ... will be of use to individuals interested in the role of TGF-beta in the development of cancer and fibrosis. This will likely benefit readers interested in TGF-beta in the pathogenesis of disease ... . also be a resource for those interested in the complex intracellular signaling cascades elicited by TGF-beta in normal and altered cells."

Back cover copy

Transforming Growth Factor- in Cancer Therapy, Volumes 1 and 2, provide a compendium of findings about the role of transforming growth factor- (TGF-) in cancer treatment and therapy. The first volume, Basic and Clinical Biology, is divided into three parts. Part I presents basic concepts of transforming growth factor- signaling in normal physiology and cancer pathobiology. Part II investigates transforming growth factor- superfamily members in normal and tumor biology. Part III details transforming growth factor- in inflammation and fibrosis. This volume's companion, Cancer Treatment and Therapy, examines transforming growth factor- in several developing and advanced cancers and discusses methods of treatment and therapy. Together, Transforming Growth Factor- in Cancer Therapy, Volumes 1 and 2, provide researchers and clinicians with a comprehensive and cutting-edge reference for the findings about the role of transforming growth factor- in biology and cancer treatment.show more
