About this book

The theory of a stem-cell origin of cancer is neither ground breaking nor earth shattering. Many prominent investigators have established the foundation for this concept and performed the vital experiments to support its validity and merit. The purpose of this book is to illustrate how this theory may completely transform our current views and perspectives about cancer.  It is anticipated that the variety of ramifications of a stem-cell origin of cancers will be embraced by the medical research community to bring new treatment modalities to the cancer patient.

"The stem-cell theory of cancer has significant biologic and clinical consequences. Though components remain open to debate the fundamental observations are grounded in scientific experimentation. This text explains the conceptual aspects of cancer stem cells with an emphasis on the implications for our patients."

- Steven T. Rosen, M.D.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This concise book is written for a broad audience of basic science and clinical researchers interested in cancer biology, as well as those interested in the identification and directed differentiation of adult and embryonic stem cells. The author’s clear writing style will appeal to young scientists and nonexperts who are interested in … cancer stem-cell theory. … is captivating, fascinating, instructive, and well written. … The book is fun to read. … This is a welcome addition to the literature on cancer biology.” (Bruce A. Fenderson, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2010)
