In Endocrinology of Breast Cancer, Andrea Manni, MD, organizes a cutting-edge review of how derangements in the hormonal and growth factor mechanisms controlling normal mammary development lead to breast cancer. Drawing on the multidisciplinary expertise of leading authorities, the book highlights the roles of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, spelling out the importance of autocrine/paracrine loops (e.g., stromal epithelial interactions) in supporting breast cancer cell proliferation and the progression to hormone independence. The book's many prominent contributors also illuminate significant recent advances in the biochemistry and physiology of hormone receptors and review the state-of -the-art in the endocrine therapy of breast cancer. Providing a unique, integrated overview of the most significant developments involving the hormonal aspects of breast cancer, Endocrinology of Breast Cancer constitutes an invaluable, broad-ranging resource for all basic scientists, clinicians, and fellows-in-training who want to better understand and treat this most common malignancy
