Abstract:
Primary Liver Cancer is perhaps the most prevalent malignancy in the world, particularly in South East Asia and Africa. After the discovery of hepatitis B virus as a cause of chronic liver disease often terminating cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, and, more recently, the integration of viral DNA into host chromosomal DNA, the progress made in this field has been remarkable. The major reference books written until now on liver cancer are out-of-date. This new book contains 35 chapters each contributed by an authority in the field and covers all topical aspects, such as oncogenes, epidemiology, carcinogenic role of hepatitis viruses, histopathology, new imaging techniques and new treatment modalities that include ultrasound-guided intratumor injections of ethanol and targeting chemotherapy. Not only will clinicians dealing with liver cancer patients benefit from this book, but also basic researchers will learn a great deal from the relevant chapters. Read more
