Kinetics of Experimental Tumour Processes focuses on the principles of the kinetics of experimental malignant growth. This book also looks into the molecular mechanisms of chemotherapy and certain problems of carcinogenesis and biochemistry. Organized into eight chapters, this monograph first describes the kinetic curve for tumor growth and the experimental data on tumor growth from the USSR and elsewhere. Subsequent chapters deal with kinetic analysis of the results obtained by various treatments of tumors; pharmacokinetic methods of major regularities connected with general problems of cancer chemotherapy; molecular mechanisms of chemotherapy; and the role of free radicals in the mechanisms of carcinogenesis and tumor growth. The last two chapters detail the kinetic analysis of biochemical shifts occurring in tumor tissues and the disturbance of structure and biosynthesis of informational macromolecules occurring in tumor growth. This book will help in the mutual efforts among researchers for the solution of the most important current problems in oncology.
