Recent years have witnessed major advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis of benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer at both the molecular and cellular levels. These developments were based essentially on fundamental research which as yet has not be substantially translated into clinical practice. In parallel, however, important breakthroughs have also been made in the development of new treatments with significant implications for the management of these diseases.
The Prostate: New Developments and Concepts brings together experts and specialists in the field to review the advances underlying the mechanisms of proliferation and metastasis at the molecular level and chart the future for more effective modalities in the diagnosis and prognosis of prostate disease.
