Medicinal Chemistry of Chemotherapeutic Agents: A Comprehensive Resource of Anti-infective and Anti-cancer Drugs focuses on the basics and fundamentals of chemistry involved in chemotherapeutic agents. Each chapter comprises distinct chemical classifications that include structure and IUPAC nomenclature, synthetic schemes and routes for each drug, mechanism of the drug action, metabolic pathway and structure–activity relationship (SAR) studies. The book covers current research focused on drug resistance and methods to overcome it, the development of newer drugs belonging to each category of the chemotherapeutic agents, molecules currently under clinical trials, and newly approved drugs, if any. This book will be a valuable resource for academics and researchers, helping them to understand the fundamentals of the medicinal chemistry of the chemotherapeutic agents.
