Cancer Etiology and Selected Aspects of Cancer Pathology: A Decimal Classification, (Categories 51.4 and 51.5).
Schneider, John H.
This is a hierarchical decimal classification of information related to various types of carcinogenesis (Chemical, viral, hormonal, radiation), cancer demography, and selected descriptive and "in vitro" aspects of cancer pathology. It is a working draft of categories taken from an extensive classification of many fields of biomedical information. Because the classification identifies very small areas of cancer information, it can be used for precise matching of cancer researchers with useful documents or data in information systems, and for detailed analysis of large cancer research programs. (Related Documents are: ED 025 270 and LI 004 018 and LI 004 020.) (Author)
