This book is written by International experts in their field and should appeal to students and seasoned researchers, to scientists and to clinicians. No prior knowledge of the topic is required to appreciate this text and yet the book charters new territory. New perspectives are given on how our knowledge of cancer development might lead us to reconsider our clinical approach to early detection and prevention of cancer at an individual and population level.
