Title:
Genetics of cancer: current knowledge and future possibilities.
Authors:
Evans, D Gareth R
Abstract:
For many years there has been scepticism among clinicians and cancer epidemiologists as to whether cancer was a genetic disease or could be hereditary. It is only in the last 10 years that developments in molecular biology have proven the hereditary nature of a small proportion of certain common cancers. That cancer is now indisputably 'genetic' at the cellular level is beyond dispute.
