Description

Novel Anticancer Agents offers pertinent basic science information on strategies used for the rational design and discovery of novel anticancer agents, and, in addition, translational studies involving clinical trial design and execution with these novel, mostly cytostatic agents. This book covers basic science strategies that are being used in drug discovery and preclinical evaluation focused on novel molecular targets, as well as clinical trial methodology including clinical pharmacokinetics and imaging to address issues of efficacy evaluation of the new, relatively non-cytotoxic anticancer agents.

At present, there is no book that provides such an integration of basic and clinical studies of novel anticancer agents, covering both drug discovery and translational research extensively.

Review Text

"This book is well-conceived and well-presented. The editors have done an excellent job gathering experts in cancer research to contribute to a book that offers a truly integrative overview of basic and clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapeutic agents. All chapters are well referenced and of appropriate length, and many chapters contain useful illustrations. The index is complete, which makes the text more accessible. This is an excellent book that is appropriate for researchers or clinicians with an interest in novel anticancer agents." -- John D. Robertson, University of Kansas Medical Center in DOODY'S (June 2006)
