    This insightful volume opens new horizons for exploring modern therapeutic entities and emerging targets for combating the deadly disease of cancer. The authors provide a review of cancer along with descriptions of its molecular level mechanisms and emphasize the role of promising new therapies, including herbal therapies, that can be utilized for the treatment of metastatic diseases. The chapters look at specific approaches that have been researched and developed and that have almost reached the standardization stage, such as intracellular mechanisms, particularly phosphoprotein-enriched astrocytes and transthyretin proteins; CXCR4; autophagy-inhibiting drugs; spatiotemporal genetic analysis; tyrosine kinase inhibitors; and more. Also considered are advances in diagnostic systems like intra vital microscopy and molecular imaging.
