Handbook of cancer chemotherapy
The Sixth Edition of this handbook is a practical, disease-focused pocket reference that emphasizes the optimal current medical practice as it relates to the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs. In an easy-to-follow outline format, the book provides complete coverage of the basic principles of rational chemotherapy, the drugs and biologic agents available, the treatment of specific cancers, and selected aspects of supportive care. New to this edition: advances in therapies for individual cancers; significant updating of the drug information section and specific tumor types to reflect the recent development of many new agents, particularly biologic ones; and new American Cancer Society screening guidelines and cancer website information.
