About this book
Expert physician-scientists and clinicians review those combinations of novel target agents classic
chemotherapies that hold the most promise for the future of medical oncology, and detail their optimal
sequence, pharmacokinetic interactions, and interaction with downstream cellular signals. The
combinations run the gamut of targeted therapies against cell surface receptors (EGF-R and HER2),
the cell cycle (the CDKs), signal transduction events (PKC and NF-kB), apoptosis (bcl-2), as well as
focused therapies in ovarian cancer, hematologic diseases, and breast cancer. The authors emphasize
novel translational approaches that are rapidly moving from the laboratory bench top to the patient's
bedside for the future treatments in cancer therapy.
Written for:
Academic researchers in the field of drug development for cancer therapy and clinicians doing clinical
trials of novel targeted therapies
