Frontiers in Cancer Research: Evolutionary Foundations, by Carlo C. Maley, Mel Greaves

By Carlo C. Maley, Mel Greaves

This is the correct publication for an individual considering beginning a profession in, or transferring their profession to, learning the dynamics that force melanoma development and its reaction to remedy. issues contain the idea and inhabitants genetics of cancers, genetic range inside of tumors (intra-tumor heterogeneity), figuring out how mutant clones extend in tissues, the function of melanoma stem cells within the dynamics of tumors, the evolution of metastasis, and the way to enhance melanoma treatment via addressing the evolution of cancers according to our interventions. There also are chapters at the styles of melanoma susceptibility in people as a result of a mismatch among our smooth setting and the surroundings within which our ancestors advanced, in addition to a bankruptcy at the evolution of melanoma suppression mechanisms that experience developed in several species, relatively the massive long-lived animals like elephants and whales which are higher at suppressing cancers than people.

This booklet serves as a primer at the evolutionary and ecological concept of melanoma- the framework upon which the entire info of melanoma will be hung. it really is excellent for oncologists and melanoma researchers attracted to evolutionary thought, and evolutionary biologists and ecologists attracted to gaining insights into melanoma improvement and prevention.

Example text

In contrast to infectious pathogens, the more heterogeneous and dynamic nature of cancer may not reward an over-commitment to molecular reductionism, but instead calls for an explicitly process-oriented approach [8, 65]. This may require new methods and technologies. Classical reductionist molecular biology focuses on the commonalities among cells, rather than their differences [66]. The need to address the cell diversity that fuels somatic evolution may require innovative approaches. For example, one major research direction in cancer prevention is development of molecular biomarkers for early detection, and for prognosis.

Sottoriva and S. 1 Terminology: standard population genetics vs. population genetics of neoplasms Standard population genetics Individual Species Reproduction Fertilization, recombination Speciation Species evolution Natural environment Selective pressure from environment, predators, etc. Population genetics of neoplasms Cancer cell Clone Mitosis Somatic mutation, mitotic recombination Appearance of a new clone Tumor progression Tumor microenvironment Selective pressure from normal cells, other cancer clones, immune system, therapy, etc.

Pepper observe evolutionary processes in real time under controlled conditions. A parallel approach was recently advocated for experimental studies of cancer cell evolution [46]. The utility of this approach will depend partly on whether important traits of cancer cells can be isolated in culture, rather than arising only through interactions with normal human tissue. Some important topics, such as angiogenesis and interactions of cancer cells with immune cells and fibroblasts, may not be easily addressed in vitro.
