$a 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 1: Molecular Pathology Methods and Reviews, leading physicians, scientists, and noted researchers review novel methods for determining the etiology of a variety of lung cancers and present readily reproducible techniques for examining the associated multitude of genetic abnormalities. The methods described make it possible to detect these alterations at the cellular, DNA, and protein levels, to study the development of lung cancer in vitro and in vivo-either in situ or in the form of metastases-and to test targeted therapies with detailed model systems. An animal models section gives explicit instructions for setting up and testing these systems, which are rarely described in the literature. A companion volume, Lung Cancer, Volume 2: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Methods and Reviews, concentrates on diagnosing lung cancer through molecular analysis of clinical samples and providing a variety of novel therapies. Comprehensive and informative, 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. Together, the 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.
