Metastatic Bone Cancer: Bone Pain When Breast & Prostate Cancer Spreads
Given the global prevalence of breast and prostate cancers, knowledge of bone biology has become essential for everyone within the medical and cancer research communities. Bone Cancer continues to offer the only translational reference to cover all aspects of primary bone cancer and bone metastases - from bench to bedside: development cellular and molecular mechanismsgenomic and proteomic analyses, clinical metastatic cancer bone histopathology, imaging, pain monitoringas well as new therapeutic approaches and metastatic cancer bone trials for primary bone tumors and metastatic cancer bone metastases.
