About this book

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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book covers the basic science and translational and clinical aspects of bone cancer and bone tumors. … The target audience is clearly an elite group of clinicians and scientists who are focused on understanding future innovations in the treatment of bone related cancers. … a great addition to the lab that is studying bone cancers or for the clinician who is actively treating patients with bone cancer. … the average orthopedist will find in deeper scientifically than is necessary for a general orthopedic practice.” (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2009)

“This book is the fifth volume in the series Topics in Bone Biology. It presents up to date knowledge in the mechanisms of cancer in bone. … The book is well written, extensively referenced and comprehensive. It has been well edited, and chapters are of a consistent layout. … The book will make a good addition to a departmental library in any unit managing skeletal cancer.” (Robert U. Ashford, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 21, 2011)
