Lung cancer is a disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung in a process called metastasis into nearby tissue and, eventually, into other parts of the body.
Worldwide, lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, and is responsible for 1.3 million deaths annually, as of 2004.
Survival depends on stage, overall health, and other factors, but overall 14% of people diagnosed with lung cancer survive five years after the diagnosis.

In a wider sense, this book gets to the heart of the issues affecting the stability and performance of financial institutions whether they are Islamic or Western. The recent global financial crisis is a stark reminder on how vital the stability of the global financial system is to the world’s interconnected economies. The United States and Western Europe have not yet fully recovered from the adverse effect of the recent global financial crisis in terms of costly bailouts by taxpayers of failed banks and lingering higher levels of unemployment. As regulating the banking sector to stave off financial crisis has become a hot issue in the United States and Eurozone countries, the book looks at what lessons conventional banks and financial institutions can draw from the principles of Islamic finance.
The book analyzes the origins and evolution of Islamic finance and shows the role that major schools of Islamic thought play in deciding whether a particular transaction or financial instrument complies with Islamic law. It delves into case studies in the Middle East and the island nations of Southeast Asia.
The book will prove of interest to investors who want to learn more about emerging markets in the Muslim world where many large financial institutions and corporations use the principles of Islamic finance. The book will also be of interest to government officials, academics, financial professionals in general and more particularly the educated middle classes in North Africa and the Middle East, Malaysia, and Indonesia, where Islamic banking and financial services are rapidly growing in dominance.
