Pathophysiological Aspects of Proteases in Cancer

Sajal Chakraborti

Pathophysiological Aspects of Proteases in Cancer provides a comprehensive overview of the multifaceted field of proteases in the cellular environment and focuses on the recently elucidated functions of complex proteolytic systems in physiology and pathophysiology. In 25 chapters this book both gives insight in the general aspects of the role of proteases in cancer, their role as diagnostics and prognostics biomarkers, their impact on chemoresistance and the future cutting edge technologies like cocktail therapies and Cyber Knief technology. Given the breadth and depth of information covered in the respective contributions, the book will be immensely useful for researchers in oncology and working to identify targets for drug development. Multidisciplinary in scope, the book bridges the gap between fundamental and translational research, with applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry, making it a thought-provoking read for basic and applied scientists engaged in biomedical research.
