Cancer Chemotherapy Press Reviews

True to the title, the strength of the book is the discussion of chemotherapies themselves. The classical anticancer drugs are well dealt with in Chapter 8 with good background information and plenty of chemical structures and figures explaining mechanisms . (Australian Biochemist , 1 April 2011) A useful addition to stand beside standard sources. ( Pharmaceutical Journal , December 2009)
