Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title reviews the key prognostic factors in breast cancer, discussing the methodologies involved in measuring and reporting. It also examines the roles of major predictive markers such as the steroid receptors, p53 and HER-2. Given the wealth of information in the medical literature on breast cancer, this volume is useful in that it focuses strictly on these factors. That focus makes this text extremely useful for oncologists and researchers who want to learn more about best practices in prognoses.
