  • State-of-the art information on proliferation mechanisms and cancer research including cancer stem cells, written by leaders of the field around the world
  • Comprehensive introduction with excellent figure material
  • The book is written in a way for addressing researchers from various disciplines
  • Audience includes  university libraries,  graduate  students as well as researchers on post-doctoral and professor level, physicians interesting in novel approaches of therapy, academics and scientists of pharmaceutical industry, academics from related areas (biomedicine, pharmacy, chemistry), graduate student classes at the Universities of São Paulo and Belo Horizonte, international conferences and workshops (Cell Biology, medicine among others)
The book will discuss the molecular mechanisms of cancer diseases, stem cell proliferation and transformation into cancer cells beyond the physiological processes that occur in normal stem cell biology. Some of the key oncogenic events in cancer and their signaling pathways that regulate cell division cycle progression will be described considering prospects for using such knowledge in advanced cancer therapy. Each chapter shall provide an invaluable resource for information on the most current advances in the field, with discussion of controversial issues and areas of emerging importance
