About the Book
Changes in gene sequences and expression levels as well as protein structure and/or function have been associated with cancer predisposition and prognosis. These 'molecular markers' or else biomarkers
can be useful in early detecting cancer, determining prognosis and monitoring disease progression or therapeutic response. Because of the limitations of conventional epidemiological studies in accurately measuring exposure to many pollutants, scientists have developed molecular epidemiological approaches where they have incorporated molecular and cellular markers for improving disease incidence and thus mortality. It is therefore outmost importance to present the current state of dependable bio-marker development and their use to human cancer predisposition, prognosis and treatment.
