Cancer Clinical Pharmacology provides a comprehensive account of the scientific basis of anti-cancer therapy in patients with solid tumours and haematological malignancies. An international group of experts have brought together information on the basic principles of pharmacology and tumour biology, bioanalytical aspects, pharmacokinetics, and the pharmacodynamics of anti-cancer agents. The clinical pharmacology of individual anti-cancer agents are covered, including the most important recently registered novel anti-cancer drugs. This book will prove an invaluable source of information for all trainees in oncology, haematology and internal medicine. Since cancer clinical pharmacology is a vast subject this book will be useful for all individuals involved in cancer pharmacology such as nurses, pharmacists, general pharmacologists, and cancer scientists.
