In this book, the authors suggest that a "dysmethylation syndrome" disrupts essential regulations controlling cellular growth, metabolism and mitosis, and may then cause cancer. Dysmethylations (hyper or hypomethylations) affect not only the expression of genes controlling growth and mitosis, but also the activity of enzymes such as (PP2A) phosphatase, which is assembled after methylation. PP2A limits the action of trophic kinases activated by growth factors or by oncogenes. In neurones, the syndrome associated to a poor methylation of the phosphatase and other substrates, leads to hyperphosphorylated proteins, as found in Alzheimer's disease. Cancer, Alzheimer's disease may possibly have, like Biermer's anemia, essential links with methylation processes.

In her New York Times bestseller, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, Dr. Kelly A. Turner, founder of the Radical Remission Project, uncovers nine factors that can lead to a spontaneous remission from cancer—even after conventional medicine has failed. While getting her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Turner, a researcher, lecturer, and counselor in integrative oncology, was shocked to discover that no one was studying episodes of radical (or unexpected) remission—when people recover against all odds without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed. She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten month trip around the world, traveling to ten different countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Her research continued by interviewing over 100 Radical Remission survivors and studying over 1000 of these cases. Her evidence presents nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.

The field of adolescents and young adult (AYA) oncology is experiencing a very challenging time. This book is a guide to the key issues for any clinician and health professional managing AYA with cancer in Europe. Emphasis is on collaboration between adult and pediatric specialists. Authors present their perception of the current state of the most prominent primary issues in AYA oncology. Chapters cover cross-cutting issues such as disease epidemiology, systems of care, access to innovative therapy and late effects of treatment and survivorship for AYA-onset cancers. There are discussions of the latest developments and the most important cancer types for AYA, including the shared perspectives of adult and pediatric specialists. Throughout the book recurrent challenges to the AYA community are exposed and solutions proposed. Tumors in Adolescents and Young Adults is highly recommended to any oncologist or haematologist treating patients aged 15 to 39 diagnosed with cancer. It will also be of interest to other members of the multidisciplinary teams involved with this patient group.
