An Update on Clinical, Genetic Counseling, Epidemiology and Molecular Tumor Biology

Retinoblastoma is the first tumor suppressor gene discovered ever. The discovery opened a new avenue in the field of oncology leading to the identification of 35 tumor suppressor genes, till date in our genome. This book is an excellent compilation of both clinical and basic science information that meets the needs of a young clinician and a researcher at the same time. It also has abundant information on recent advances and cutting-edge knowledge in intracellular molecular cross-talking of retinoblastoma protein with various cellular viral-like proteins.
