Cancer Risk Assessment
edited by Peter G. Shields

Cancer Risk Assessment offers practical approaches to determine cancer risk in individuals, groups of exposed persons, and the general public in relation to individual genetic and acquired susceptibilities.

Features:

  • Provides a solid background in carcinogenesis and molecular epidemiology to examine the risks of suspected carcinogenic agents and critically evaluate published studies on these compounds
  • Studies the role of genetics and gene-environment interactions in cancer risk
  • Analyzes genetic tests for persons with cancer and data that can be gleaned from the study of tumors
  • Reviews how agencies decide which carcinogenic agents should be considered as human carcinogens for regulatory purposes
  • Discusses how cancer is inherited and which genes may cause cancer in families
  • Describes differences in cancer risks and rates among racial and ethnic groups
  • Examines the latest molecular and epidemiological data concerning breast, gynecological, liver, brain, and prostate cancers
