During the last five years significant progress has been made in our understanding of the biology of breast cancer. As a result of linking observations made in the laboratory to new treatment strategies, the outcome of patients with both early and late stage disease has continued to improve.
Advances in Breast Cancer Management, Second Edition will highlight many of the important advances that have transformed our understanding of the biology and therapeutics of breast cancer.
