The present book covers a broad range of novel aspects of prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment and patient care, as well as new research on relevant cell biology. In detail, this special volume focusses on supportive modalities for prostate cancer patients, appropriate selection of novel therapeutic regimens, including inhibitors of steroidal synthesis, cytotoxic agents, as well as intermittent androgen suppression and the roles of prostate cancer stem cells and inflammatory processes.
