Neuroblastoma: Molecular Mechanisms and Therapeutic Interventions comprehensively reviews current concepts in molecular and histopathological mechanisms that influence the growth of human malignant neuroblastoma, along with exciting therapeutic interventions. This book features a broad collection of contributions from leading investigators in histopathology, molecular mechanisms, genetics, epigenetics, microRNAs, proteomics, and metabolism in controlling growth and death in neuroblastoma. Recent developments in therapeutic interventions for neuroblastoma are also covered extensively, including chapters on surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy. This book is ideal for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, medical students, postdoctoral fellows, and investigators with an interest in current molecular concepts and therapeutic interventions.

  • Comprehensively covers the histopathological characterization, molecular mechanisms, and most recent therapeutic interventions in neuroblastoma
  • Includes recent developments and therapeutic interventions for neuroblastoma, including chapters on surgery, chemotherapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy
  • Presents a broad scope that provides basic researchers, practitioners and students with the most current overview of recent advances

Ray, Swapan K.
Dr. Ray is senior faculty at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine with a deep interest in neuro-oncology. He has been working in the neuroblastoma field for more than 10 years has over 175 publications in the field and is funded by the federal, state, and private funding agencies for conducting his research. His laboratory focuses on the understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of malignant diseases such as glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, and Ewing's sarcoma and the development of novel therapeutic strategies for neurological disorders. He has trained many students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty members as well.
