Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Yuan Yuan, MD, PhD (City of Hope)
Description: The connection between inflammation and cancer has been established through extensive research. The aim of this book is to examine the role of inflammation in cancer from the perspective of molecular biology, based on recent research.
Purpose: The purpose is threefold: 1) to provide an introduction to the role of inflammation in various types of cancer; 2) to describe the role of inflammatory molecules in the transformation of different type of cancers from the perspective of signal transduction pathways; 3) to discuss the role of inhibitors of inflammation for prevention and treatment of cancer.
Audience: The audience includes established researchers, professors, healthcare professionals, and students in the medical and scientific community. The authors are expert, credible authorities in this field.
Features: This book covers important areas of cancer and inflammation research and includes historical overviews, detailed descriptions of molecular pathways critical for the connection of inflammation and cancer tumorigenesis, metastasis, proliferation, etc. It points out the relevance of inflammation in anticancer therapy. Because it is organized by different types of cancer, it is easy for readers to identify area of interest. It is well written, with clear and comprehensive descriptions of the concepts, and covers the basic science as well as clinical applications, making it accessible to wide range of readers. The illustrations are well conceptualized. The book would be further enhanced by a chapter at the end of book summarizing the highlights, challenges, pitfalls, and areas that are critical to move the field forward.
Assessment: This is a well-written, well-structured book that covers a long interesting area of cancer research. It provides readers with important new information on cutting-edge biomedical research aimed at improving our understanding of the interaction of inflammation and cancer.
