Autophagy: Cancer, Other Pathologies, Inflammation, Immunity, Infection, and Aging, Volume 12 discusses and details almost all aspects of the autophagy machinery in the context of health, cancer and other pathologies. Autophagy is more widely accepted as beneficial given its role in eliminating ‘toxic assets’ and promoting cell viability, hence, it has emerged as a new and potent modulator of disease progression that is both scientifically intriguing and clinically relevant. As the latest release in the Autophagy book series, users will find a detailed explanation of the role of molecular mechanisms.

Key Features

  • Presents the most advanced information regarding the role of the autophagic system in life and death
  • States recent advancements in the molecular mechanisms underlying a large number of genetic and epigenetic diseases and abnormalities
  • Summarizes the most up-to-date findings on how autophagy is executed and regulated at the molecular level and how its disruption can lead to disease
  • Authored by global leaders in the field, bringing the broadest, most expert coverage available


Academic/clinical professors, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and medical students in immunology, microbiology, pathology, molecular biology, infectious diseases and cancer research
