Protocol Handbook for Cancer Biology comprehensively brings together all the methods used for cancer assessment, diagnostics and therapeutics. Various protocols are discussed along with alternative strategies, advantages and limitations of techniques that have been used in labs globally and are presented by experts based on their real-world experience.

The book discusses topics such as cell viability and apoptotic assays for cancer detection; high throughput cell-based screening methods for cancer drug discovery; assays and protocols to evaluate tumor angiogenesis and detect cancer metastasis; and isolation and characterization of cancer stem cells. In addition, it explains the role of nanotechnology in cancer therapy, and tumor imaging and radiological protocols used for diagnosis and treatment.

It is a valuable source for cancer researchers and graduate students that will find all types of protocols used in laboratories to help to fasten their research and impact positively in their results.

Key Features
