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
