Book Description

Recent Results in Cancer Research: Hormones and Human Breast Cancer provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of breast cancer and hormones. This book discusses the endocrine factors involved in breast cancer.
Organized into two parts encompassing 11 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the process of castration as an effective therapeutic measure in many pre-menopausal patients with advanced breast cancer. This text then discusses the response rate following ablation wherein only 60 percent of patients subjected to hormone therapy as a first treatment for recurrence will survive to ablation. Other chapters consider the microscopical features of a tumor. This book discusses as well the prescription of corticosteroids as treatment, which originates from the mechanism of response that followed adrenalectomy or hypophysectomy. The final chapter deals with the use of radio-immunoassay methods in treating breast cancer.
This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, scientists, and physicians.
