- Covers basic model studies of novel biomarkers and treatment targets of the microenvironment, exploration and validation of different classes of biomarkers in human tumors, and challenges of clinical implementation and treatment trials
- High-quality illustrations and colour images of tissue-based biomarkers
- International authors and opinion leaders in different research fields
This book reviews different aspects of the cancer microenvironment, and its regulation and importance for tumor progression. Practical applications, in terms of how biomarkers are increasingly included in therapy protocols, will also be discussed.
Biomarkers of the Tumour Microenvironment: Basic Studies and Practical Applications is aimed at research pathologists in the cancer field, and also cancer researchers from other backgrounds, especially those using morphology techniques and models focusing on cross-talk betweendifferent cell types in tumors.
