Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

The Cancer Handbook is a major new reference work that provides a comprehensive overview of cancer, biology and medicine. All aspects of scientific and clinical information in cancer research and medicine are explored in this expansive resource for a wide audience including medical and life science students, as well as researchers, scientists and clinicians in the cancer field and related biomedical areas.

The Cancer Handbook bridges the gap between the basic science of cancer and clinical diagnosis and treatment providing the 'horizontal connections' between all major areas of cancer research. It stands out from existing oncology textbooks and reference works in that it focuses on all general aspects of cancer research. Over 100 chapters cover fields including: molecular basis of cancer, causation and prevention, diagnostic and investigative procedures, systemic oncology, pre-clinical models, and the treatment of human cancer. Highly structured and cross-referenced, this work has been written with an emphasis on clarity of style, with plenty of diagrams and data redrawn in a consistent and accessible format.

Features include:

  • 107 chapters, divided into 6 main sections
  • Over 200 contributors drawn from the international biomedical community
  • Approximately 800,000 words
  • 750 illustrations in black and white, and in colour, plus numerous tables and figures
  • Extensive article cross-referencing
  • Further reading lists for each article


  • The Molecular Basis of Cell and Tissue Organisation
