The processes of tumor metastasis, apoptosis and anti-tumor immune response are among the most complex yet rapidly advancing fields in the area of cancer research. This monograph presents a comprehensive coverage of the recent advances in the various key concepts in these fundamental aspects of human cancer.
The book is likely to be of particular interest to members of the cancer research community, especially those who are actively involved in the study of basic and translational aspects of human cancer.
