About this book


In Regional Chemotherapy: Clinical Research and Practice, Maurie Markman and a panel of distinguished clinicians and leading clinical investigators comprehensively review the current status of regional antineoplastic drug delivery in the management of malignant disease. These authorities present a critical analysis of both the rationale and limitations of regional therapy and discuss potential clinical trials designed to explain the effectiveness of this method of therapy in special settings. Their presentations describe many exciting and innovative strategies for using regional drug delivery in anticancer therapy, including coverage of such areas of special interest as colorectal, skin, lung, pancreatic, ovarian, and gastrointestinal cancers.
Comprehensive and authoritative, Regional Chemotherapy: Clinical Research and Practice offers surgical and medical oncologists and clinical cancer investigators a gold-standard review of the current role and future development of this increasingly powerful weapon in the battle against cancer.
