Introduction to Cancer Metastasis provides, in one place, an overview of organ-specific cancer metastasis and the most common sites of cancer metastasis. Through specific chapters on individual primary cancers, their metastasis, and chapters on common metastatic sites, this volume comprehensively informs readers about the broader knowledge base in cancer metastasis. The process of metastasis is particularly responsible for making cancer so lethal. This volume explores both metastasis from sites of origin and common metastatic sites, thus increasing understanding of both perspectives.
- Includes basic biology and translational approaches to organ-specific cancer sites
- Provides readers with information on emerging therapeutic targets for cancer metastasis
- Contains contributions from leading researchers around the globe
Cancer researchers, oncologists, geneticists, and genomicists
