Cancer Biology: How Science Works – eBook PDF
Cancer is a group of diseases that can impact basically every organ of our body, all of which have in common uninhibited cellular growth. The cells forming our body have the ability to grow in the background of wound healing or for the continuous replacement of cells in our skin, blood, or intestine. Behind each newly diagnosed malignant tumour in adulthood, there is an individual history of perhaps 20 or more years of tumorigenesis. Thus, malignant tumour formation usually takes time making cancer in most cases an aging-related disease that we seem not to be able to avoid. However, tumorigenesis is reliant on multiple environmental influences, many of which we have under control by lifestyle decisions, such as holding from smoking, selecting healthy food, and being physically active. Thus, cancer preventive interventions are the most helpful way to fight against cancer.
Cancer Biology: How Science Works, (PDF) wants not only to describe fundamental mechanisms leading to cancer but also to offer the readers a more all-inclusive view including cancer surveillance mechanisms of the immune system. We will place these understandings in the context of the personal consequences of everyone’s lifestyle decisions.
The content of the ebook is linked to the lecture course in “Cancer Biology”, which is given by Prof. Carlberg since 2005 at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. Furthermore, biological processes explained in this ebook will be set into a clinical context using the experience of Dr Velleuer in the daily care in oncology. This ebook also associates to the textbooks “Human Epigenetics: How Science Works” (ISBN 978-3030229078), “Mechanisms of Gene Regulation: How Science Works” (ISBN 978-3030523213), and “Nutrigenomics: How Science Works” (ISBN 978-3030369484), the studying of which may be motivating to readers who like to get more detailed information.
NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Cancer Biology: How Science Works in PDF. No access codes are included.
