Description

Transforming Growth Factor- ss in Cancer Therapy, Vols. 1 and 2, provides a compendium of findings about the role of transforming growth factor- ss (TGF- ss) in cancer treatment and therapy. The second volume, Cancer Treatment in Therapy, is divided into three parts. Part I examines transforming growth factor- ss in developing and advanced cancers. Part II details transforming growth factor- ss in cancer treatment and therapy. The final part includes an investigation into the development of inhibitors of transforming growth factor- ss signaling for therapy. This volume's companion, Basic and Clinical Biology, examines transforming growth factor- ss signaling in normal physiology, cancer pathobiology, normal and tumor biology, and inflammation and fibrosis. Together, Transforming Growth Factor- ss in Cancer Therapy, Vols. 1 and 2, provide researchers and clinicians a comprehensive and cutting-edge reference for the findings about the role of transforming growth factor- ss in biology and cancer treatment.show more
