Description

Covering one of the most important research topics in cancer biology, this is an ideal ready reference for oncologists, cell biologists, pharmaceutists, pathologists, molecular biologists, internists, and researchers working in the pharmaceutical industry.
Following an introduction that provides an overview of tumor angiogenesis, the book goes on to look at mechanisms of angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, signal transduction, therapeutic approaches in combination with established treatments, and concludes with a section on imaging and biomarkers in angiogenesis.

"In summary, this text is well written, in a clear style, though obviously assumes prior knowledge of the subject. There are numerous clear black and white as well as colour plates, and there is a comprehensive list of references at the end of each chapter." (Oncology News, 1 January 2012)
