Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Reviews recent and emerging clinical laboratory tests that can help in the early detection, evaluation, and prediction of human tumors. Emphasizing the importance of molecular and genetic RNA/DNA tets that detect persons at high risk for specific cancers, the authors explore these novel serological assays, cellular assays useful for anatomic pathology, and molecular and genetic assays.
