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 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 that permits readers to learn more about specific aspects of the chapter topic. Tables, diagrams and figures illustrate and clarify cellular events that lead to development and progression of cancer in bone. Insights based on cellular and molecular events clarify the clinical picture and may lead to translational research and focused therapy. The chapters, authored by authorities from throughout the world, emphasize how current knowledge can lead to better treatement.
