Although tumour marker analysis constitutes a sizable portion of clinical laboratory investigation, no comprehensive textbook about this important area currently exists. This book provides up to date information on how these markers can be used to detect disease and/or monitor treatment. Organized into four parts: principles and practice including recommended guidelines for clinical application of tumour markers, identification of organ specific tumour markers, genomic, proteomic and bioinformatic technologies for discovering new cancer markers, and emerging trends including the discovery of promising new cancer biomarkers.
