Series: Horizons in Cancer Research
BISAC: MED062000

This book presents original results on the leading edge of cancer research. Topics discussed include the risk factors, diagnosis and treatment options for glioblastoma; the biology of the interleukin-2 (il-2)-based immunotherapies in cancer and autoimmune disease; RNA interference for cancer therapeutics; melanoma progression to metastatic disease; proteins, polysaccharide-peptide complexes and polysaccharides with antiproliferative and anticancer properties of mushroom origin; low-molecular-weight compounds with anticancer activity of mushroom origin; lifestyle and cancer prevention; and the pathology and pathogenesis of Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
