About the book

Description

Cancer Biomarkers: Clinical Aspects and Laboratory Determination provides a comprehensive overview of current biomarkers for cancer detection, monitoring and recurrence, focusing on emerging technologies, impacts on the field, and selected biomarkers currently used in clinical practice. The content highlights current laboratory tests used in the management of adult and pediatric cancer patients. In addition, it investigates the role of Circulating Tumor Cells and circulating tumor DNA as biomarkers in cancer management as well as cytokines in monitoring response to CAR T therapies.

This title is a perfect reference for clinical pathologists, laboratory scientists, medical technologists, physicians specializing in oncology, internal medicine, family practice and transplant medicine, resident physicians, medical students, nurse practitioners and clinical chemists.
