Inhaltsangabe: This text offers an up-to-date review of the field of cancer chemotherapy, including some of the new approaches to biological treatments of cancer and potential targets for new drug design. A detailed description of the pharmacology, mechanisms of action, toxicity, resistance mechanisms, and clinical usefulness of each class of drugs is given. The authors emphasize concepts involved in determining the mechanism of action and development of resistance, the determinants of drug responsiveness to chemotherapeutic agents, and a rationale for their clinical use in various types of cancer. The text is organized in a way that makes it easy for the reader to conceptualize how drugs work and categorize them by their mechanism of action. It facilitates an understanding of the rationale for chemotherapy with respect to the biology of the cancer cell and to tumor growth kinetics. It is extensively referenced and provides a historical background for the development of each class of drugs. The authors draw on the fields of medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and clinical medicine in writing this text.

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
