The cells of the human body work together structurally and functionally to maintain the body's homeostasis and architecture. Alteration of pathways and signaling mechanisms may influence the rate of cell proliferation and the risk of benign or malignant cell proliferation. Transformed cells acquire new properties that can have a significant impact on local structures or the whole body. Proliferating cells acquire new properties (eg, gain independence from systems that control cell cycle development, develop the ability to invade other tissues) that can alter the body's homeostasis and predispose to pathological conditions that have a poor prognosis.
In this book we try to present the general characteristics of malignant diseases and to particularize them for colorectal cancer. This approach allows us to highlight the problems faced by clinicians and researchers in the biomedical fields that address malignancies.

BIBLIOGRAPHY / 87

The cells of the human body work together structurally and functionally to maintain the body's homeostasis and architecture. Alteration of pathways and signaling mechanisms may influence the rate of cell proliferation and the risk of benign or malignant cell proliferation. Transformed cells acquire new properties that can have a significant impact on local structures or the whole body. Proliferating cells acquire new properties (eg, gain independence from systems that control cell cycle development, develop the ability to invade other tissues) that can alter the body's homeostasis and predispose to pathological conditions that have a poor prognosis.
In this book we try to present the general characteristics of malignant diseases and to particularize them for colorectal cancer. This approach allows us to highlight the problems faced by clinicians and researchers in the biomedical fields that address malignancies.
