Effective care of the cancer patient increasingly involves systemic treatment, and as the range of available therapeutic agents continues to expand, the medical oncologist must be fully aware of the rationale for choosing specific drugs and combinations. Already acclaimed in previous editions as a key source of reference for all working in the field of Oncology, the third edition of this text has now been completely revised with important new chapters and illustrations throughout to keep it at the forefront of cancer medicine.
