Editorial Review
From Book News, Inc.
The proceedings of the December 1993 symposium essentially comprise the state of the art research related to the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and control of prostate cancer and BPH. The volume is divided into five sections: etiology, prevention and control of prostate cancer; specific tumor markers of prostatic cancer; intercellular basis of abnormal prostate growth; molecular genetic basis of initiation and progression of prostate cancer; and molecular basis of hormone resistance and therapeutic approaches.
