Programmed cell death (PCD) plays pivotal roles in tumor progression, cancer therapeutics and resistance of tumor cells to therapy. This book examines the mechanisms involved in mediating and regulating PCD in cancer. It also provides a detailed indication of the utility of PCD in cancer therapy. The book features chapters on the current and future of RNA interference in therapeutics and Pathways involved in Stem Cell Survival and Death.
