Summary Molecular-based laboratory methods can help significantly in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, a leading cause of death worldwide. In Lung Cancer, Volume 2: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Methods and Reviews, leading physicians, scientists, and noted researchers describe step-by-step techniques for lung cancer diagnosis based on the molecular analysis of clinical samples. These experts review currently accepted treatments and outline a variety of novel therapies, including treatments based on gene therapy, immunotherapy, and chemoprevention, and show how these newly improved techniques can give a better appreciation of the prognosis associated with the particular mutation uncovered by the technique. These methods use a variety of molecular techniques, including the manipulation of gene expression and the alteration of immune status, to combat lung cancer. A companion volume, Lung Cancer, Volume 1: Molecular Pathology Methods and Reviews, illuminates the etiology of lung cancer and provides reliable techniques for detecting the responsible genetic mutations at the cellular, DNA, and protein levels. Comprehensive and informative, Lung Cancer, Volume 2: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Methods and Reviews illuminates how molecular approaches can and are being applied to the diagnosis of lung cancer. Together, these two volumes constitute an unprecedented resource for those who wish to better understand how this disease is being diagnosed and treated, and what novel techniques may be available to improve both processes.
