Cancer Epidemiology Volume 1, Host Susceptibility Factors (Methods in Molecular Biology) (Hardcover)
Population studies and epidemiology facilitate the discovery of genetic and environmental determinants of cancer and the development of new approaches to cancer control and prevention, therefore they play a central role in the creation of health policies. Cancer Epidemiology compiles areas of research which cover etiological factors or determinants that contribute to the development of cancer and describe the latest technologies in cancer epidemiology. In Volume 1, Host Susceptibility Factors, leading experts provide chapters on cancer incidence, prevalence, mortality and surveillance, methods, technologies and study design in cancer epidemiology as well as host susceptibility factors in cancer epidemiology. Although a non-standard volume of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this comprehensive text retains the commitment of the series to collecting the kind of detailed, up-to-date information and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results.
Cutting-edge and essential, Cancer Epidemiology allows readers to get the maximum advantage of the methods involved in this exciting and important field.

ABOUT THE BOOK
“The first volume is dedicated to the methods, technologies and study design in analytical cancer epidemiology. The more thorough attention is provided to case-control and cohort studies, to regression models. … In conclusion it is necessary … for clinicians, epidemiologists and laboratory workers, studying molecular biology in acquisition of knowledge which could broaden their scientific outlook and enlarge the orientation of their study in future years.
