This is the fourth volume of the eBook Series entitled Topics in Anti-Cancer Research. This volume covers new research as well as updated chapters on topics relevant to modern cancer research published in the journal Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery.

Interesting diverse methods, new technologies and fast developing areas in the field of anti-cancer research are presented. The topics included in the present volume will be of great value to clinicians, scientists and R&D experts aiming to learn more about the latest developments and new alternatives for different types of cancer treatment.

The use of gold macro rods and ultrasound for cancer treatment with hyperthermia, obesity associated breast cancer, and the role of cytokines and chemokines pathways in studying cancer immunotherapy are discussed. The mechanism of antibody-drug and antibody-toxin conjugates alongwith clinical trials research, significance of transforming growth factor-beta and urokinase type plasminogen activator in tumorigenesis and reverstol studies in oncohematological disorders are also presented.

Other important areas covered include the discovery of novel compounds, drugs and chemotherapeutics in the treatment of lung cancer, biological functions of cell surface nucleolin in cancer, polymeric nanosystems and nanosystem applications used for anticancer drug therapy. Recent advances in development of new potent tubulin inhibitors and structures of molecular hybrids and their actions in different cell lines have also been discussed. All these studies focused are supported by recent associated patents

The topics covered in this fourth volume will be of immense interest for those researchers and scientists looking for new techniques, targets, drugs, compounds and drug delivery methods for various types of cancer and its control.
