About this book

Transforming Growth Factor-ß in Cancer Therapy, Volumes 1 and 2, provides a compendium of findings about the role of transforming growth factor-ß (TGF-ß) in cancer treatment and therapy. The second volume, Cancer Treatment and Therapy, is divided into three parts. Part I examines transforming growth factor-ß in developing and advanced cancers. Part II details transforming growth factor-ß in cancer treatment and therapy. Part III includes an investigation into the development of inhibitors of transforming growth factor-ß signaling for therapy.

This volume’s companion, Basic and Clinical Biology, examines transforming growth factor-ß signaling in normal physiology, cancer pathobiology, normal and tumor biology, and inflammation and fibrosis. Together, Transforming Growth Factor-ß in Cancer Therapy, Volumes 1 and 2, provide researchers and clinicians with a comprehensive and cutting-edge reference for the findings about the role of transforming growth factor-ß in biology and cancer treatment.
