VIII + 148 p., 17 fig., 11 in color, 2 tab., hard cover, 2008
This book, at the forefront of experimental and clinical research, is the first to highlight the common molecular links between these two diseases. These tight links indicate a complex interdependency between both diseases on a cellular and hormonal basis, which is influenced by a variety of aspects (e.g. nutritional, social and neuro-immunological factors). Special attention has been given to the fundamental role of the switch from oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis of cancer cells - the Warburg effect.
Offering insights into the interdisciplinary approaches of tomorrow, this publication will encourage endocrinologists, oncologists, diabetologists, general practitioners, diabetic nurses and students of life sciences working separately on various aspects of diabetes and cancer to come together and combine therapies and strategies.
