About this book

This book is a comprehensive handbook designed for quick reference by medical oncologists on the side-effects of cancer therapy drugs, including the chemotherapeutic drugs.

The most dangerous side-effects will be given priority so as to alert the reader to their importance.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This handbook will serve mainly as a quick source of information for medical providers caring for oncology patients. … This is a valuable resource that not only compiles the important toxicities of cancer drug treatments, but also offers prevention and management approaches for these side effects. The use of well-considered management and preventive algorithms and selected illustrations enhance the effectiveness of this handbook for its target audience - those involved in the care of cancer patients.” (Judith G. Abramson, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2013)
