A unique book on the interactions and interrelationships between tumor and host that modulate progression and metastasis. Several authors emphasize targeting the host rather than the tumor itself for therapeutic intervention to control cancer.
Reviews cellular and molecular aspects of tumor progression and metastasis
Emphasizes therapeutic approaches to control tumor progression
Emphasizes targeting the host to control cancer
Emphasizes organ microenvironment as an important parameter in development of antimetastatic therapies
