The Philadelphia Chromosome
Bargain Book Copy
Philadelphia, 1959: A scientist scrutinizing a single human cell under a microscope detects a missing piece of DNA. That scientist, David Hungerford, had no way of knowing that he had stumbled upon the starting point of modern cancer research - the Philadelphia chromosome. This book charts not only that landmark discovery, but also - for the first time, all in one place - the full sequence of scientific and medical discoveries that brought about the first-ever successful treatment of a lethal cancer at the genetic level.
