This volume provides a broad background of the basic sciences, clinical and therapeutic aspects, and management of uterine cervical cancer. It offers state-of-the-art information on the molecular genetics, biology, and clinical aspects of premalignant lesions of the uterine cervix, and provides a better understanding of the molecular and cellular events that underlie uterine cervical cancer. Uterine Cervical Cancer: Clinical and Therapeutic Perspectives contains extensive, updated information on the promising new developments in the diagnosis and management of uterine cervical cancer. It will serve as an invaluable resource for all clinicians and basic medical scientists caring for women with uterine cervical cancer, including attending surgeons, physicians, clinical fellows, and residents in the disciplines of gynecologic oncology, medical oncology, and surgical oncology.
