PREFACE According to the oldest known records, cancer, which has more than 100 species starting from Egypt in 3000 BC, is among the reasons for the main lines of the studies carried out by many researchers; increases in the number of incidence and deaths, complex structure, advantages and disadvantages, and at the same time, these options are open to developments with the help of biotechnology. So what is cancer? It occurs when cells in any part of the body begin to divide, multiply and accumulate in an uncontrolled way due to genetic and environmental factors, and at the same time contain the potential to spread to distant tissues and organs and prevent these tissues and organs from performing their functions by suppressing their functions; it is a disease not only biological but also psychological, social and with economic dimensions. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) states that by 2030, cancer may be placed first in the list of causes of death. At this point, increasing the success rates of cancers determined by various standards is related to remembering that it is an individual illness. Because despite all approaches in cancer treatment, each individual has a different DNA structure, division, and control of cells is under the control of genes, and cancer cells are competent cells with their metabolism. Therefore, it is not surprising that individuals respond differently to treatments. Approaches to cancer, standardized treatments, studies, and articles on cancer provide an endless resource on cancer definition, standards, occurrence and development, mechanisms, new immunological and biological treatment methods including experimental treatments, and many other related topics. This book aims to bring together the long and detailed researches required to reach accurate and straightforward information in one place, iv to create a bridge between complex information, to provide a detailed perspective on each stage of cancer and cancer stem cells, To give information by comparing experimental treatment methods.
