In 1988 Dr. Marshall Goldberg published his book about cancer research called Cell Wars. Goldberg moved to Philadelphia about then and was working at Jefferson University as professor of medicine and director of the division of endocrinology. Cell Wars is written for an audience of educated laypeople, and it is made both readable and more comprehensible by a number of scientifically based, novelistic sidebars told from the point of view of various cells. On the second page of his book, Goldberg explains that very few innovative cancer treatments make it to the final stage of testing: human experimentation. “This book,” Goldberg writes, “in part, is the story of one new treatment method—monoclonal antibodies—that did. Conceptually, at least, it may well represent the forerunner of a cure for most human cancers.”
