Item description for Mechanisms in Carcinogenesis and Cancer Prevention (Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology) by Harri U. Vainio...
A large proportion of cancers is preventable. External factors, discovered by epidemiological studies during the last 50 years, account for a majority of all cancer deaths. However,still rather little isknown, about how environmental and genetic factors interact, how they may regulate gene activation etc. Andit is a long way from the discovery of a basic regulatory mechanism to practical patient treatment. This volume describes thepresent state of the art in carcinogenesis, possibilities for cancer prevention, and gives genetic background in cancer development. Attention is given to the host-environment interaction, considering how this interaction may lead to cancer formation and how it can be utilised in cancer prevention. The molecular basis for cancer development and the molecular basis for prevention are described.
