9780521401289: A Practical Guide to Human Cancer Genetics

This extensively up-dated and expanded edition provides the busy clinician with an essential overview of the latest developments in human cancer genetics - an area that has made significant advances since publication of the first edition. The opening section presents the principles of cancer genetics and introduces the basic concepts and mechanisms of tumorigenesis and inherited predisposition to cancer. The second part of the book provides information, on a systems basis, on the incidence, significance and management of predisposition to individual cancers. The final section then deals with specific inherited cancer syndromes, giving practical guidance on clinical investigation, screening and management of affected patients and relatives at risk. Up-to-date details of the genetic mapping of inherited cancer syndromes and the molecular genetic changes in individual cancers are also provided. Finally, an appendix provides a helpful revision guide to the fundamental principles of genetics. This practical and clear account will benefit clinicians and research workers in oncology, genetics, surgery and general medicine.

Review:

."..comprehensive and amazingly up-to-date....a book that I would recommend for every physician's office....It would also be a valuable adjunct for medical students as part of their medical genetics courses. Resident physicians in virtually all specialty areas would also profit from this valuable guide to genetic cancer problems." Henry T. Lynch, American Journal of Epidemiology ."..a good quick reference on the genetics of human cancers. Its small format and straightforward style make it practical and easy-to-use." Stephen P. Tomasovic, The Cancer Bulletin
