The early chapters of this book summarize the principles and methods of epidemiology, the biology of cancer, cancer genetics, the potential of biomarkers, and burden of cancer around the world. Then, chapters of uniform structure on over 20 types of cancer provide clinical and pathologic outlines, descriptive epidemiology, and an account of risk factors and their etiologic importance.In Thailand (Hirunsatit et al, 2003) and China (Fan et al, 2005), polymorphisms in the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor (PI GR), a cell surface receptor proposed to mediate EBV entry into the nasal epithea lium, were ... In addition, polymorphisms in the X-ray repair complementing gene 1 (XRCC1) were associ a ated with 20%a50% lower risk of NPC ... 1999; Hui et al, 1999); such findings suggest that tumorasuppressor genes at these loci may be involved in NPC development.
