The underlying theme of this book is the pharmacology of anti-cancer drugs in humans. The book considers both the theory and practice of clinical pharmacology where it is relevant to cancer treatment. It covers the basics of clinical pharmacology in oncology and cancer therapeutics, discussing the specific classes of anti-cancer agents in detail. Edited and written by a mix of generalist cancer clinical pharmacologists and sub-specialists within this area, the book allows the reader to develop both general clinical pharmacology skills and specialist knowledge for particular cancer chemotherapy agents.
