Racing to the beginning of the road : the search for the origin of cancer by Robert A Weinberg ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From his unique perspective at the center of the maelstrom, Dr. Weinberg provides an insightful look at the human forces that propel the race forward or, just as often, hold it back. Some scientists, sensing the urgency and elusiveness of their goal and competition on all sides, leap into brilliantly productive collaborations; others, driven by the same high stakes, construct elaborate deceptions. Like Watson's and Crick's account of discovery in The Double Helix, Racing to the Beginning of the Road reveals the immediate impact of scientific progress: successful proofs of one hypothesis explode others previously held as fact and lead to even more challenging conundrums
The Philadelphia chromosome : a mutant gene and the quest to cure cancer at the genetic level by Jessica Wapner ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work discusses the history of a genetic mutation, discovered in 1959, that causes chronic myeloid leukemia, and traces the research and breakthroughs that led to the creation of a drug that makes this once-fatal illness now treatable. It focuses on what is widely viewed as the 'poster child' of rational drug development in the cancer research world. The history of the founding of a genetic mutant chromosome in the indication of Chronic myeloid leukemia disease, and the subsequent development of "Gleevec," is the keynote of this publication
