About this book


Colorectal cancer is one of the most frequent human tumors. Despite tremendous advances in our knowledge about the pathogenesis of the disease, the prognosis remains poor for almost half of the individuals affected. This volume provides an updated and comprehensive description of the most relevant features of colorectal cancer - from molecular biology to prevention, from hereditary syndromes to new treatment modalities. It represents an invaluable source for clinicians who deal with colorectal neoplasms and for all those who wish to increase their knowledge of these malignancies.
