Dynamics of Cancer: Incidence, Inheritance, and Evolution
by Steven A. Frank
Publisher: Princeton University Press 2007
Number of pages: 395
Frank's forte in the book is his search for the simplicity that is often masked by the complexities of cancer. With his mathematical models in hand, he turns to the details of cancer genetics, carcinogens, and aging and provides novel integrative insights...Dynamics of Cancer emphasizes both the multiscale dynamics of the disease and an approach that synthesizes empirical knowledge with parsimonious, mathematical theory. Frank moves the field forward, narrowing the gap between a tragic disease of everyday life and the Darwinian world of the genome.

In this volume, we seek to explore novel mechanisms of cellular transformation by oncogenic viruses, the role of viral infection in cancer development in understudied body sites and the potential role of novel viral pathogens in cancer development.

These guidelines have been developed to help all those involved in the management of advanced breast cancer. The authors have tried to concentrate on those areas where it was felt uncertainty or practice variation currently exists.
