Cancer still remains one of the most difficult diseases to treat clinically and is one of the main causes of mortality in developed western societies. The mortality statistics for the United Kingdom for the year 2002 show that 155,180 people were registered as dying from a malignant neoplasm.1 This figure represents 26% of all causes of death in the UK for 2002.
