Cancer Epidemiology

Volume 2, Modifiable Factors

Editors: Verma, Mukesh (Ed.)

  • Provides a detailed analysis of the study of genes and environments and their interaction and how the use of population sciences facilitates translation and application of new discoveries
  • Delves into inherited genetic susceptibility as well as epigenetics and the risk of cancer
  • Presents the use of genomics as the latest tool in translational epidemiology
  • Examines how cancer epidemiology plays a role in public health policy
  • Provides the latest information on modifiable factors in cancer epidemiology: disparities, lifestyle, energy balance and physical activity, smoking and alcohol intake
  • Studies how host susceptibility factors such as race and ethinicity influence the risk of cancer
  • Details the role of novel technologies and methodologies in unlocking the mysteries of interactions of gene and environment to early detection and intervention of cancers
  • Covers the role of cutting-edge technology in predicting genetic mutation caused by gene and environment
  • Provides comprehensive information on the epidemiology of organ specific cancers

About this book

Population studies and epidemiology facilitate the discovery of genetic and environmental determinants of cancer and the development of new approaches to cancer control and prevention, therefore they play a central role in the creation of health policies. Cancer Epidemiology compiles areas of research which cover etiological factors or determinants that contribute to the development of cancer and describe the the latest technologies in cancer epidemiology.  In Volume 2, Modifiable Factors, leading experts provide chapters on modifiable factors in cancer epidemiology, epidemiology of organ specific cancer, and environmental and life style factors.  Although a non-standard volume of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this comprehensive text retains the commitment of the series to collecting  the kind of detailed, up-to-date information and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results.

Cutting-edge and essential, Cancer Epidemiology allows readers to get the maximum advantage of the methods involved in this exciting and important field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The second volume is dedicated to miscelaneous modifiable factors in cancer epidemiology. … In conclusion it is necessary … for clinicians, epidemiologists and laboratory workers, studying molecular biology in acquisition of knowledges which could broaden their scientific outlook and enlarge the orientation of their study in future years." (I. Pleško, Neoplasma, April, 2009)
