  • Over the last three decades, knowledge on the molecular biology of human cancers has vastly expanded. A host of genes and proteins involved in cancer development and progression have been defined and many mechanisms at the molecular, cellular and even tissue level have been, at least partly, elucidated. Insights have also been gained into the molecular mechanisms underlying carcinogenesis by chemical, physical, and biological agents and into inherited susceptibility to cancer. Accordingly, Part I of the book presents many of the molecules and mechanisms generally important in human cancers.

  • There is growing evidence on the importance of studies focusing on mechanisms and strategies leading to cancer prevention. The plethora of approaches include regulation of oxidative stress using antioxidant therapies, carefully balanced diets and living habits, epidemiological evidence and molecular approaches on the role of key biological molecules such as antioxidant enzymes, vitamins, proteins and naturally occurring free radical scavengers as well as controversial results and clinical applications. These are some of the topics that this book highlights.

  • There have been a significant number of advances in the field of cancer research since the first edition of Cancer Biology, which was published in 1981. These include advances in defining the genetic and phenotypic changes in cancer cells, the genetic susceptibility to cancer, molecular imaging to detect smaller and smaller tumors, the regulation of gene expression, and the ‘‘-omics’’ techniquesofgenomics, proteomics,and metabolomics, among others.

  • Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the world. There are no screening tests available for its diagnosis, therefore patients usually presents in late stages, associated with poor prognosis. Currently, many efforts are made toward new advances in the treatment strategies. The book makes an insight into the assessment of premalignant lesions, current management of early gastric cancer, risk and protective factors in gastric carcinogenesis.

  • MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNAs of 18–25 nucleotides that are generally believed to either block the translation or induce the deg-radation of target mRNA. miRNAs have been shown to play fundamental roles in diverse biological and pathological processes, including cell prolif-eration, differentiation, apoptosis and carcinogenesis.

  • One of the more interesting aspects of the announcement by Ian Wilmut that he and his colleagues in Scotland had successfully “cloned” a sheep born in 1996 was the enormous public interest and misunderstanding about cloning. The common misperception, which persists to this day, is that a cloned individual would be an exact duplicate of another.

  • Abstract Mitochondria are sub-cellular organelles that produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) through oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). As suggested over 70 years ago by Otto Warburg and recently confirmed with molecular techniques, alterations in respiratory activity and in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) appear to be common features of malignant cells. Somatic mtDNA mutations have been reported in many types of cancer cells, and some reports document the prevalence of inherited mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in cancer patients.

  • It is important that cord blood transplantation is one of the risk factors of symptomatic adenoviremia (Robin et al., 2007), which develops to acute renal failure in the terminal stage (Abe T et al., 2009). At present, there is no established consensus about the treatment for acute renal failure induced by adenovirus after stem cell transplantation. This chapter focuses on the recent advances in diagnosis, mostly due to the development of molecular methods, and therapeutic interventions.

  • Carcinogenesis covers molecular, biochemical and cellular processes that underpin this field. The complex nature of cancer means that a broad understanding of these processes is advantageous when designing novel preventative, therapeutic or diagnostic strategies. This book commences with chapters discussing cancer predisposition and pre-cancerous lesions. Factors that initiate or progress cancer development, including viral, hormonal, oncogenic and biochemical stimuli are then described, as are interactions with the cancer extracellular environment....

  • Pancreatic cancer is one of the most fatal human malignancies with extremely poor prognosis making it the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. The molecular mechanisms of pancreatic carcinogenesis are not well understood. The major focus of these two books is towards the understanding of the basic biology of pancreatic carcinogenesis, identification of newer molecular targets and the development of adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapies.

  • Admission to veterinary programmes around the globe is a highly competitive process, with candidates typically required to attain top grades in science-based subjects to qualify for entry. Owing to the large number of applicants to veterinary schools, interviews often form part of the selection process. Although curricula will vary from provider to provider, veterinary programmes are extremely intensive courses of study and typically include pre- clinical, para-clinical and clinical components.

  • The Hsp90 molecular chaperone catalyses the final activa-tion step of many of themost important regulatory proteins of eukaryotic cells. The antibiotics geldanamycin and rad-icicol act as highly selective inhibitors of in vivo Hsp90 function through their ability to bindwithin the ADP/ATP binding pocket of the chaperone. Drugs based on these compounds are now being developed as anticancer agents, their administration having the potential to inactivate sim-ultaneously several of the targets critical for counteracting multistep carcinogenesis. ...

  • Christina DeStefano-Shields graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Georgia and then worked as a research assistant at the University of California Berkeley and Davis campuses. She was interested in research that would combine molecular mechanisms of toxicants, understanding toxicants in the environment, and translation of this research to improve human and environmental health.
