"...offers unique information on the discovery and design of new anticancer agents, covering recent notable successes resulting from the human genome and cancer genomics projects...an excellent reference for translational researchers interested in cancer biology and medicine as well as students in pharmacy, pharmacology, or medicinal and biological chemistry..."--Anticancer Research 34, 2014 "The second edition of this book walks readers through the myriad cancer drugs and their molecular targets, with a special emphasis on past, present, and future drug design efforts... the book examines both drugs currently in the clinic and those merely on the drawing board...This comprehensive update of the 2008 edition will serve student or experienced cancer researchers well as a reference on anticancer drug development." Rating: 4 Stars--Doody.com, March 21, 2014 "Specialists in cancer and pharmaceuticals, most in academic settings, look at basic principles of cancer drugs, methodology, drugs in the clinic, new agents, and the reality of cancer drugs in the clinic...They do include many case studies, and some chapters provide questions for classroom use."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
