Descripción del producto
"The book fulfills its purpose and is, indeed, a must-read for students of cancer biology…It includes updated information and concepts in cancer research that justify replacing the previous edition."
- Doody Reviews
"This publication represents an exhaustive and detailed coverage of the field of basic oncology oriented toward a student audience, and it continues to set the highest example of excellence in the field of undergraduate and graduate oncology." - The Quarterly Review of Biology
"Clearly, not only is it an authoritative text book on the complex biology of cancer, it serves as an invaluable reference document for individuals working in biomedical laboratories as well as professionals involved in day to day management of cancer in the clinics." - Oncology News
Praise for the First Edition of THE BIOLOGY OF CANCER by Robert A. Weinberg:
“There is no comparable text in cancer biology…”
“The Biology of Cancer is no doubt the definitive statement on its topic today.”
“Here, at last, we have a definitive textbook specifically devoted to the molecular and cell biology of cancer.”
- Bioscience Education
“Overall, this is a remarkable achievement that is by far the most comprehensive coverage of this field available.”
- Times Higher Education Supplement
Reseña del editor
Thoroughly updated and incorporating the most important advances in the fast-growing field of cancer biology, The Biology of Cancer, Second Edition, maintains all of its hallmark features admired by students, instructors, researchers, and clinicians around the world.
The Biology of Cancer is a textbook for students studying the molecular and cellular bases of cancer at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels. The principles of cancer biology are presented in an organized, cogent, and in-depth manner. The clarity of writing, supported by an extensive full-color art program and numerous pedagogical features, makes the book accessible and engaging. The information unfolds through the presentation of key experiments that give readers a sense of discovery and provide insights into the conceptual foundation underlying modern cancer biology.
The new Second Edition has been comprehensively revised and updated to include major advances in cancer biology over the past six years. Updates include current information on:
- The tumor microenvironment
- Metastatic dissemination
- Tumor immunology
- Cancer stem cells
- The epithelial-mesenchymal transition
- Multi-step tumorigenesis
- Invasion and metastasis
- Mutation of cancer cell genomes
- Greatly expanded treatment of traditional therapy
- Epigenetic contributions
- MicroRNA involvement
- The Warburg effect
Besides its value as a textbook, The Biology of Cancer is a useful reference for individuals working in biomedical laboratories and for clinical professionals.
Every copy of the book comes with an updated "Pathways in Human Cancer" poster and a DVD-ROM containing the book’s art program, a greatly expanded selection of movies, audio file mini-lectures, Supplementary Sidebars, and a Media Guide.Ver Descripción del producto

If your are interested in the molecular mechanism underlying the progress of cancer, I really suggested you to read this one, as you will find this book informative with emphasize on the gene instability and mutations. However, if you want to get a comprehensive view of this area, pls refer to " the molecular basis of cancer (4th)", which is also very organized and tend to cover more aspects than this one. If you are MD, and want to be more familiar to clinical related applications, use another book "Devita, Hellman and Rosenberg's cancer principles...", they are more focusing on clinical practices. Overall, if this book will have a third edition, and I hope it will, I will buy one with no hesitation.
If you are not an expert in cell biology, the book takes care to explain concepts in the context of cancer; for example, it gives a primer on the immune system at the beginning of the immunology chapter.
Note, this is not a textbook of cancers or pathology, but of our current understanding of how all cancers work, mostly at the molecular level. I am reading this as a medical student and for that purpose, it is both too long and missing the pathology that I need, but I don't regret it. Like I said, this textbook is more about providing a complete and up-to-date understanding for the science-minded individual. On that basis I can recommend it to an enthusiastic undergraduate.
The book is further enhanced by a process of revision and update that magically cover almost any aspect, including immunology, therapy and cell biology. Prof. Weinberg is famous for scientific articles with a clear and incisive prose and the book offers all the nuances of his style. In addition, topics are extremely well integrated. Students and scientists will be happy to see how chapters are offering superlative insights with a unique perspective of the field. I was waiting the second edition for several years. And I am surprised to see how a masterpiece morphed into another one. Images and printing are state of the art.
