Nutrient-Gene Interactions in Cancer
edited by Sang-Woon Choi

Nutrient-Gene Interactions in Cancer brings together leading authorities in the field who provide an overview and look specifically at the mechanisms known to underlie each nutrient and gene interaction.

Features:

  • Provides the latest epidemiological evidence on the interactions between nutrients and gene polymorphisms affecting cancer development
  • Describes interactions that affect colorectal, breast, lung, prostate, liver, and other gastroenterological cancers, as well as hematologic malignancies
  • Gives an overview of nutrient-gene interaction mechanisms and explores specific biomarkers
  • Offers striking examples of the interaction between genetics, epigenetics, and nutrition in many different types of cancer
