Bone Cancer Book Excerpt:

Bone Cancer: Bone Sarcomas and Bone Metastases - From Bench to Bedside, Third Edition comprehensively investigates key discoveries in the field of bone biology. New aspects of bone cancer biology are treated in new chapters covering exosomes, autophagy, and metabolism. These have led to the development of entirely new areas for investigation, such as therapies which combine surgery and biological approaches. The Third Edition expands on the original overview of bone cancer development (physiology and pathophysiology), with 40% new material. Each chapter has been written by internationally recognized specialists on the bone cancer microenvironment, bone metastases, osteoclast biology in bone cancer, proteomics, bone niche, circulating tumor cells, and clinical trials. Given the global prevalence of breast and prostate cancers, knowledge of bone biology has become essential for everyone within the medical and cancer research communities. Bone Cancer: Bone Sarcomas and Bone Metastases - From Bench to Bedside continues to offer the only translational reference to cover all aspects of primary bone cancer and bone metastases. This revision opens the door to myeloma with two short chapters dedicated to this bone-associated disease. Covers the broad field of bone sarcomas and bone metastases from basic research to clinical approaches Presents comprehensive and translational overview of biological and clinical aspects of bone cancers, discussing pathophysiology from genetic and molecular levels using the most recent evidence Provides a common language for cancer researchers, bone biologists, oncologists, and radiologists to discuss bone tumors and how bone cancer metastases affects each major organ system Offers insights to research clinicians (oncologists and radiologists) into understanding the molecular basis of bone cancer, leading to more well-informed diagnoses and treatment of tumors and metastases Offers insights to bone biologists into how clinical observations and practices can feed back into the research cycle and, therefore, can contribute to the development of more targeted genomic and proteomic assays

Cancer Imaging Book Excerpt:

This second of two volumes on Cancer Imaging covers the three major topics of imaging instrumentation, general imaging applications, and imaging of a number of human cancer types. Where the first volume emphasized lung and breast carcinomas, Volume 2 focuses on prostate, colorectal, ovarian, gastrointestinal, and bone cancers. Although cancer therapy is not the main subject of this series, the crucial role of imaging in selecting the type of therapy and its post-treatment assessment are discussed. The major emphasis in this volume is on cancer imaging; however, differentiation between benign tumors and malignant tumors is also discussed. This volume is sold individually, and Cancer Imaging, Volume 1 [ISBN: 978-0-12-370468-9] sells separately for $189 and also as part of a two volume set [ISBN: 978-0-12-374212-4] for $299. • Concentrates on the application of imaging technology to the diagnosis and prognosis of prostate, colorectal, ovarian, gastrointestinal, and bone cancers • Addresses relationship between radiation dose and image quality • Discusses the role of molecular imaging in identifying changes for the emergence and progression of cancer at the cellular and/or molecular levels

Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention Book Excerpt:

"The definitive reference for budding and experienced cancer epidemiologists alike." -American Journal of Epidemiology "Practitioners in epidemiology and oncology will find immense value in this." -JAMA Since its initial publication in 1982, CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY AND PREVENTION has served as the premier reference work for students and professionals working to understand the causes and prevention of cancer in humans. Now revised for the first time in more than a decade, this fourth edition provides a comprehensive summary of the global patterns of cancer incidence and mortality, current understanding of the major causal determinants, and a rationale for preventive interventions. Special attention is paid to molecular epidemiologic approaches that address the wider role of genetic predisposition and gene-environment interactions in cancer etiology and pathogenesis. New and timely chapters on environmental and social-epidemiologic factors include: · The role of social class disparities · The role of obesity and physical inactivity · The potential effects of electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation · The principles of cancer chemoprevention For both seasoned professionals and newer generations of students and researchers, this fourth edition of CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY AND PREVENTION remains the authority in the field -- a work of distinction that every lab, library, student, professional, or researcher should have close at hand.

Trends in Bone Cancer Research Book Excerpt:

Primary bone tumours are tumours that start in the bone. In contrast, secondary bone cancer is where the cancer started in another part of the body but has then spread to the bones. The most common types of primary bone tumor are osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma, both of which are most frequently diagnosed in children and young adults. Other less common types of bone cancer include: Chondrosarcoma (a cancer arising in cartilage cells, usually found in adults between ages 50-75, though the less common mesenchymal-chondrosarcoma is more frequent in younger patients), Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma of bone (MFH), Chondoma (a rare low grade malignancy occurring mostly between ages 30 -70), and other rare tumours. This new book brings together leading research from throughout the world in this important area of research.

Bone Cancer Book Excerpt:

Bone cancer is a harmful tumor of the bone that crushes ordinary bone cells. Essential bone malignancy is uncommon. The dominant part of individuals who have cancer in their bones have an auxiliary bone tumor. This implies the disease in their bones create from the spread, otherwise called a metastasis, from another cancer which grew somewhere else in their body. Bone malignancy alludes to the cases in which the disease begins in the bone cells and does exclude tumors that have spread to the bones. Optional or metastatic bone tumor can be appropriately alluded to as a carcinoma in light of where it initially emerged. Essential bone diseases are called sarcomas. Bone tumor is most normal in kids and young people. It is less basic in more established grown-ups. There are a few unique kinds of bone malignancy, and they can happen in any of the bones. Kinds of Bone Cancer -Osteosarcoma is the most widely recognized sort of bone tumor. It is most normal in guys between 10-25 years old, however it can likewise happen in more seasoned grown-ups. The in all likelihood areas for creating osteosarcoma are in the long bones of the arms and legs close to the development locales of the knees and shoulders. This is regularly an extremely forceful tumor, and it can spread (metastasize) to the lungs. -Ewing's sarcoma is an exceptionally forceful bone tumor. It is more typical in more youthful youngsters between 4-15 years of age. It is more typical in young men and once in a while found in those more than 30 years old. It is most ordinarily found in the center parts of the long bones in the arms and legs. It can likewise spread to the lungs and other body tissues. -Chondrosarcoma is the second most basic bone cancer. Rather than the beforehand portrayed tumors, chondrosarcoma creates from the ligament cells, not from the bone cells themselves. The pelvis and the hip and shoulder bones are most normally influenced. It is most basic in individuals more than 40 years old. It can likewise spread to the lungs and lymphatic framework. -Malignant stringy histiocytoma (MFH) is an uncommon kind of tumor which more regularly emerges from delicate tissues than from bone. When it emerges in bone, it is dealt with as if it was an osteosarcoma. It is most basic in individuals 50-60 years of age. It is most regular in the arms and legs, and is more typical in guys. -Fibrosarcoma is an uncommon delicate tissue tumor that most normally happens around the knee. It for the most part influences individuals 35-55 years of age and is more typical in guys. -Chordoma is an extremely uncommon tumor ordinarily found in individuals more than 30 years of age. It is most regularly found in either the lower or upper closures of the spinal segment.
