This volume is devoted to an examination of new approaches to cancer chemotherapy which aim at selective control and confinement of tumor dissemination and the resulting formation of metastases. The mechanisms of invasion and metastasis are discussed in detail. The 37 chapters are divided into the following subject areas: Properties of cancer cells, such as adhesiveness, invasion, and motility; characteristics of the tumor as an organized structure, including histological malignancy, vascularization, necrosis, and cell kinetics; host tumor relationships, including immunological responses and endocrine function; and drug effects.
