Bone and Cancer / Edition 1

Bone and Cancer is the fifth volume in the series Topics in Bone Biology, edited by Felix Bronner and Mary C. Farach-Carson. This title features current knowledge including that on mechanisms of metastasis, the role of the bone microenvironment in cancer progression, how inflammatory cytokines function in metastasis and osteolysis, and the role of osteoblasts, thus bringing to the clinician and researcher cellular and molecular findings that affect the search for drugs, and lead to translational studies. Each chapter contains an extensive bibliography of benefit to readers who want to learn more about a specific aspect of the chapter topic. Tables, diagrams and figures clarify the skeletal complications in the cellular events that lead to cancer development and progression of disease in bone. Insights stemming from molecular and cellular events to the clinical picture, focus on translation of discoveries in the laboratory to the clinic. Chapters are written by international authorities in the field, giving awareness of the diseases's status, appropriate treatment and potential future research. The book is of interest to academic clinicians, researchers of bone and bone cancers, professional staff of hospitals and pharmaceutical houses, and personnel involved in, and concerned with, cancer care and therapy.
