Bringing together a broad spectrum of information relating to the chemistry and pharmacology of anticancer drugs and therapies, this book covers the complete range of anticancer drug families and the chemical structures of all anticancer agents in clinical use, many at the research or clinical evaluation stage. The second edition features a new chapter on the quest for selectivity, which has become increasingly important in developing targeted drugs, that includes a table of all therapeutic classes along with their benefits and challenges. The text provides up-to-date information on biomarkers, pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics as well as agents used in the palliative care of cancer patients.
