Summary and Info
Nagy Habib and a team of clinical laboratorians and physicians describe the wide variety of powerful new laboratory methods currently being used for investigating and treating hepatocellular carcinoma. The book focuses on gene therapy approaches, including the use of such vectors as lipids, such viruses as adenovirus and baculovirus, and virus detection assessment using electron microscopy. It provides preclinical and clinical data on the killing of cancer cells using tumor-suppressor genes, antisense compounds to growth factors, immunotherapy (remove gene), or virus-directed enzyme prodrug therapy. Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Methods and Protocols offers experimental and clinical researchers a rich source of both basic science and clinical information on today's optimal use of gene therapy to treat and manage patients suffering from hepatocellular carcinoma.
