This new edition of a standard cancer biology text has been thoroughly updated, particularly with regard to oncogenes, growth factors and their receptors, differentiation, and the cell matrix. It incorporates important recent advances in research on the cellular and molecular biology of cancer and discusses the mechanisms of carcinogenesis. It describes the malignant transformation of cells, the invasiveness of cancer cells into host tissues, and the metastatic spread of diseased cells into the host organism. There are new chapters on the biology of tumour metastasis; cancer causation by chemical and physical carcinogens; viruses and oncogenes; and chromosomal abnormalities and gene derepression. Many illustrations and actual research data highlight the book.
