The book is written for established researchers, professors, healthcare professionals, and students in the medical and scientific community. … This is a well-written, well-structured book that covers a recently emerging and highly important area of cancer research, and consequently provides readers with important new information on cutting-edge biomedical research aimed at understanding the cellular and molecular underpinnings of solid tumor development.
Cancer Stem Cells in Solid Tumors represents a detailed overview of cancer stem cells and their role in solid cancers. Comprised of 24 chapters, this volume will provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of this important and evolving field.
Topics covered include:
Introduction of the CSC hypothesis
Historical perspectives and the contributing lessons from leukemia
Current knowledge regarding the identification and role of CSCs in various forms of solid cancer including breast, brain, colorectal, pancreatic, prostate, melanoma, lung, ovarian, hepatocellular, and head and neck cancer
Molecular pathways involved in driving CSC function, with a particular focus on the novel convergence of embryonic and tumorigenic signaling pathways
In vitro and in vivo assays, model systems, and imaging modalities for studying CSCs
The clinical importance of CSCs for cancer management and treatment, including important implications for prognosis, prediction, and treatment resistance
Consideration of the controversy surrounding the CSC hypothesis and important unanswered questions in this field
This collective work was written by a group of prominent international experts in cancer biology, oncology, and/or stem cell biology. It will serve as a valuable resource for established researchers, professors, health care professionals, and students in the medical and scientific community who are investigating stem cells and/or oncology.Download book
