Current Cancer Biomarkers is a comprehensive review on the status of
biological markers for various types of cancer. It aims to update readers on current
developments on the subject. The contents are divided into 5 sections covering a
wide range of biomarkers and their diagnostic applications. The range of tumour
biomarkers referenced here gives insights into molecular mechanisms behind cancer,
including initiation, development, progression, prognosis, response to the
therapeutic modalities, recurrence, and point-of-care application to detect cancer.
Key features :
-Introduction of the basic features of cancer markers
-Comprehensive and updated coverage of potential and effective biomarkers
including genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, cellular and
-Information on biomarkers in many types of cancers including breast cancer,
colorectal cancer, skin cancer, leukemia, liver cancer and prostate cancer
-Applications of biomarkers in cancer diagnosis
-Structured contents with easy-to-understand sections and headings
-References for advanced readers
The updated information about different aspects of cancer markers in the
experimental and clinical setting will enrich the reader's understanding of the
disease. The information serves as a resource to help in better management of cancer
patients and understanding cancer biology when planning medical research projects.
The book is intended as a reference for a diverse audience: biomedical science
students, medical students, academics, researchers, clinicians and multidisciplinary
teams involved in cancer management and research.
