Book Description:

Cancer Pharmacology: An Illustrated Manual of Anticancer Drugs, Second Edition?is a visually engaging reference detailing the essential basic and clinical science of all approved, effective, and life-prolonging drug therapies in oncology. Now with a greater emphasis on clinical context, application, and management in each chapter, this significantly revised edition provides both early-career and seasoned clinicians with a practical, bench-to-bedside approach and patient-oriented guide.

The book provides detailed coverage of the major advances in cancer pharmacology at the forefront of our standards of care for solid tumors and hematologic malignancies, in addition to the basic science that is directly necessary and applicable when at the patient's bedside. Everything from traditional cytotoxic agents to targeted genomic, epigenomic, hormonal, and immunotherapeutic agents is explored, in addition to a new chapter covering pharmacogenomics. Accompanied by elegant illustrations, each chapter details the tumor microenvironment, chemical structures of agents, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenomic and molecular properties of the various agents, and their mechanisms of action. The book covers alkylating agents, antimetabolites, antimitotics, epigenetic modulators, hormonal agents, targeted therapies, monoclonal antibodies, immunotherapeutic agents, and much more. Thoroughly updated to include new FDA-approved treatments and applications, and written by leading experts in cancer pharmacology, this second edition continues to be a "must have" for anyone involved in the basic, translational, or clinical aspects of oncology and hematology, including clinicians, pharmacists, nurses, and trainees.
