This book represents a broad coverage of water resources topics and approaches to the assessment of the risks posed by chemicals and radionuclides. The papers presented concern country-specific and regional cases, studied from a practical and applied viewpoint. The book will interest scientists, regulatory decision-makers and public health professionals who have worked or plan to work in Central Asia. It is also of interest to firms whose products or services are useful in the public health, water purification, water distribution and environmental consulting fields. 'Skeletal metastases are both a common and devastating consequence of a spectrum of cancers. Significant advances have occurred in our understanding of the pathobiology of this process. This text provides a comprehensive review of current investigative findings and their clinical implications.' Steven T. Rosen, M.D. Series Editor
