Examines the developmental pattern of the breast in rodents and humans. The authors have discovered a basic biological law involving the susceptibility of the breast to cancer. Expanded
This richly illustrated atlas-like book provides a foundation for the biological and molecular understanding of how the mammary gland develops and how breast cancer originates. The main goal is to comprehensively review in ten chapters fundamental knowledge in breast cancer. New paradigms are described in which induction of differentiation in the mammary gland can promote prevention and cure of breast cancer. The book is extremely helpful both for clinicians treating patients and researchers looking for new avenues of development
