About this book


Nitric Oxide and Cancer: Pathogenesis and Therapy provides the latest research and applications of nitric oxide (NO) in cancer written by experts in the field. The volume reviews significant advances in the biochemical and molecular biology of NO-mediated effects in cancer. Additionally, it explores NO and its relationship to cancer, delineating its roles in the pathogenesis, prognosis, gene and protein modifications, regulation of resistance to cytotoxic drugs and immunotherapies, and potential therapeutic applications. Nitric Oxide and Cancer addresses the burgeoning interest in a rapidly advancing field, and serves as both a valuable resource for scientists, clinicians, students, and health professionals and a reference for teaching and educational purposes.
