About this book


This much-needed collection of Tumor Marker Protocols presents cutting-edge methods for the detection and discovery of new cancer markers, particularly molecular tumor
markers. Each method is fully described by a hands-on expert who uses it regularly in the laboratory and has perfected it to a high degree of ready reproducibility. The book also places special emphasis on statistical considerations in the analysis of tumor markers, recent discoveries in the field of serum and tissue marker proteins, cytogenetic markers, molecular markers, and markers for the early detection of cancer.

Tumor Marker Protocols offers many promising opportunities for transferring new technologies from the realm of basic science to that of clinical practice. The well-honed procedures detailed here will enable cancer researchers and clinical oncologists alike to realize the promise of these powerful new diagnostic strategies for the detection, therapy, and successful prevention of cancer.
