Editors: Alfonso Baldi (Second Univ. of Naples, Naples, Italy)
Book Description:
This new multiauthored book describes the maglinant tumor, mesothelioma, and the latest advances in the field. Its purpose is to offer a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, animal model, diagnosis and therapy of human mesothelioma. This disease has become an international problem due to environmental ambient pollution, and lack of effective therapies. Notwithstanding the rise in interest in this disease at the scientific, clinical and medicolegal level, there are very few textbooks addressing mesothelioma, and even less books completely dedicated to this maglinant tumor.
