About this book

Cancers of endocrine tissues are an increasingly important public health concern whose growing prevalence has made them the focus of intensive research in recent years. In Endocrine Oncology, Stephen P. Ethier and a panel of leading investigators comprehensively analyze the cellular, molecular, and endocrine factors involved in the development of cancers of the breast, prostate, endometrium, and ovary. Concentrating on defining the most important unresolved issues in the field, the authors review how steroid hormones function to regulate normal mammary gland homeostasis in humans, with particular emphasis on the roles of estrogen, progesterone, and growth factors. Also examined are the effects of steroids in prostate cancer development and treatment, the function of growth factors in endocrine neoplasia, the actions of such nonsteroid hormones as prolactin, and the role of the suppressor genes BRCA1 and BRCA2. Throughout the book, the clinical relevance of scientific findings is emphasized.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Endocrine Oncology offers both basic and clinical
researchers not only the latest molecular and cellular findings on endocrine cancers, but also a powerful critical analysis that will prove invaluable to all endocrinologists and oncologists working in the area today.

Reviews

"...the reader will find plenty of information on epidermal growth factor-related peptides in endocrine neoplasia...All the contributions are of excellent scientific quality and the authors are recognized experts in their fields....The chapter on tamoxifen and other antiestrogens in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer is one of the more clinically oriented, and is very clearly written and practical....This book will be useful as a reference book, mainly to those who have a strong research interest in the field of breast and/or prostate cancer and those who need an update on molecular advances in a particular field of endocrine oncology." - Annals of Oncology

"...this a timely book, written by an international team....A well illustrated, well written, and informative volume." - Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism

"...presents an integrated overview and state-of-the-art of the most clinical developments concerning breast and prostate cancer. It may be therefore become an invaluable resource for clinicians to update their knowledge about breast and prostate cancer, but also for basic scientists who want to extend their knowledge about the clinical aspect of these cancer diseases." -Cell Biology International
