About the Book

Written for undergraduate students with diverse backgrounds and for members of the general readership interested in the "breakthroughs" announced so often, this well-illustrated text steps through basic principles of cancer biology, emphasizing the scientific evidence underneath them. Kleinsmith (molecular, cellular and developmental biology emeritus, U. of Michigan) refines what we image the word "cancer" means, then covers the profile of a cancer cell, the means by which cancer cells spread, the causes, chemicals, infectious agents, radiation, heredity, oncogenes, tumor suppression genes, screening and diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
