Transforming Growth Factor-ß in Cancer Therapy, Volumes 1 and 2, provide a compendium of findings about the role of transforming growth factor-ß (TGF-ß) in cancer treatment and therapy. The first volume, Basic and Clinical Biology, is divided into three parts. Part I presents basic concepts of transforming growth factor-ß signaling in normal physiology and cancer pathobiology. Part II investigates transforming growth factor-ß superfamily members in normal and tumor biology. Part III details transforming growth factor-ß in inflammation and fibrosis.
This volume’s companion, Cancer Treatment and Therapy, examines transforming growth factor-ß in several developing and advanced cancers and discusses methods of treatment and therapy. Together, Transforming Growth Factor-ß in Cancer Therapy, Volumes 1 and 2, provide researchers and clinicians with a comprehensive and cutting-edge reference for the findings about the role of transforming growth factor-ß in biology and cancer treatment.
