Descript XVIII, 150 p. 24 illus. online resource


Considerable effort has gone into the research of common cancers - lung, bowel, ovarian, cervical, and prostate cancer. In recent years, however, there has been a lack of breakthroughs in therapeutic advances. By challenging many established beliefs, Cancer explores these issues by offering new perspectives on the study of cancer and exploring the areas of mathematics, physics and chemistry in cancer research. This book is for cancer specialists, clinicians, and researchers interested in an innovative view in cancer research
