The expression and activity of key enzymes of sex steroid metabolism have major implications in the development and progression of various human hormone-related tumors, including breast, prostate, lung, and liver cancer. Focusing on five key enzymes in the metabolism of sex steroids, the volume is designed to provide an updated picture of the existing knowledge about the association between steroid enzyme expression/function and the development and/or progression of major human cancers. Information on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention of malignancies associated with steroid hormones is also presented.
