Cancer Chemotherapy Handbook is a practical manual likely to be useful to all personnel in oncologic teams: physicians, nurses, pharmacists. The first 10 chapters concisely review pertinent kinetic and cellular-effect considerations, pharmacologic principles for the main classes of drugs, principles for clinical treatment, drug-interaction mechanisms, toxicities, long-term complications, drug therapy for adverse effects, methods of drug administration, and skin testing.
