Overview

An exciting overview of the advances in the genetics and biology of liver cancer, diagnosis, treatment and prevention Chapters range from genetics and environmental risk factors, genetics of liver development and pathogenesis, epigenetic changes associated with liver cancer, the utilities of genetic animal models, cancer stem cells, applying gene expression profiling by microarrays to liver cancer, to liver cancer genetics in the clinic Cancer is a genetic disease and cancer research is a broad discipline embracing investigators and clinicians with diverse backgrounds. This new edition of Molecular Genetics of Liver Neoplasia intends to provide a comprehensive view on genetics and mechanistic understanding of liver cancer. The book covers from molecular pathogenesis, cellular origin to translational genomics of liver cancer. The leading experts in the field of liver cancer have thoroughly summarized the latest developments and have provided current viewpoints and novel concepts. This cutting-edge monograph is a vital resource for today's basic cancer researchers, graduate students, medical students and clinicians who are interested in hepatocarcinogenesis.
