Translational oncology represents a bridge between basic research and clinical practice in cancer medicine. The vast majority of cancer cases are due to environmental risk factors. Many of these environmental factors are controllable lifestyle choices. Experimental cancer treatments are studied in clinical trials to compare the proposed treatment to the best existing treatment through translational research. The key features of the book include: 1) New screening for the development of radioprotectors: radioprotection and anti-cancer effect of β-Glucan (Enterococcus faecalis) 2) Translational perspective on hepatocellular carcinoma 3) Brachytherapy for endometrial cancer 4) Discovery of small molecule inhibitors for histone methyltransferases in cancer BT - Translational Research in Cancer SP - Ch. 6 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/intechopen.95016 DO - 10.5772/intechopen.95016 SN - 978-1-83880-535-7 PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2021-04-18 ER -
