Principles and Practice
Lung Cancer: Principles and Practice reflects the progress in prevention, screening, and detection of early disease, and treatment. With contributions from surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pulmonologists, and basic scientists, this volume is the most comprehensive, current reference available on lung cancer.
This edition includes new findings on the molecular genetics and biology of lung cancer, updates on lung cancer immunology and gene therapy, and current concepts on genetic susceptibility. Greater emphasis is placed on prevention and screening for early disease. This edition also examines new cytotoxic agents and their interactions with radiation therapy.
