One of the essential goals in medicine today is to devise therapies leading to the cure or effective control of cancer. The development of new anticancer drugs is central to this goal and in both concept and technology is one of the most rapidly changing areas of science. This multidisciplinary process includes the identification of new therapeutic targets, drug design and synthesis, preclinical testing, and clinical trials. Most scientists and clinicians concerned with anticancer drugs are familiar with only parts of this process. This book provides the best of science and clinical application in a single reference work.
