Molecular Biomarkers in Cancer Detection and Monitoring of Therapeutics: Volume Two: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications discusses how molecular biomarkers are used to determine predisposition, facilitate detection, improve treatment and offer prevention guidelines for different cancers. It focuses on novel diagnostic techniques based on molecular biomarkers and their impact on treatment, covering different cancer types such as tumors in the nervous system, head and neck, oral and GI tractor, lung, breast, gastric system, leukemia and urogenital tract cancers. For each type, the book discusses the best diagnostic techniques and therapeutic approaches, thus helping readers easily identify the best solution for each case. This is a valuable resource for cancer researchers, oncologists, graduate students and other members of the biomedical field who are interested in the potential of biomarkers in cancer research.
