From the Back Cover

Metastasis is the cause of approximately 90% of cancer- associated deaths, yet the mechanisms governing this clinically important process remain poorly understood. Melanoma is the third most common diagnosis among patients with brain metastases, after lung and breast cancer. Approximately 75% of patients with metastatic melanoma develop brain metastases during the course of their disease. Although tumorigenesis of melanoma remains poorly understood, recent advances in gene expression profiling have revealed molecular mechanisms of this deadly disease. High-throughput gene expression has many advantages over techniques in cancer transcriptomic studies and has led to the discovery of numerous diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic targets, which are discussed in this book. Brain Metastases from Primary Tumors discusses the link between primary tumors and brain metastasis of melanoma. Brain Metastasis of Melanoma is addressed from all aspects including molecular mechanisms, treatment options, prognosis, and general applications. Comprehensive chapters discuss systemic therapy, integrin inhibitors, stereotaxic radiosurgery, and more. This book is a great resource for neurooncologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, and cancer researchers.
