Advances in Cancer Research

Advances in Cancer Research provides invaluable information on the exciting and fast-moving field of cancer research. Here, once again, outstanding and original reviews are presented on a variety of topics, including platelet-derived growth factor in disease, genetic predisposition in tumor development, primary effusion lymphoma, and many more.Cancer is not one disease, but a group of diseases in which malignant cells grow out of control and spread to other parts of the body. Eventually these cells form a visible mass or tumor. Appropriate treatment for cancer depends on what kind of cancer a person has. The type of cancer is determined by the organ the cancer starts in, the kind of cell from which it is derived, and the appearance of the cancer cells.
