The book's many distinguished contributors illuminate the biology and genetics of breast cancer, including what is known about the hereditary breast cancer genes, BRCA1 and 2, the cutting-edge cytogenic approaches, and the biology of breast cancer metastasis. In addition, the authors describe current and future methods of breast cancer treatment in depth, and discuss environment and diet as risk factors for the disease. Constituting an excellent reference and resource for all clinical and experimental oncologists as well as those genetic counselors and nurses who need to understand the latest developments in breast cancer biology, risk, and treatment, Breast Cancer: Molecualr Genetics, Pathogenesis, and Therapeutics will broaden their knowledge of the disease and permit them to focus on the critical questions that still need to be answered."@en ;
