Reviews the mechanisms and clinical implications of drug resistance in cancer, considered to be the most significant obstacle to the cure of cancer today. Topics covered include multiple drug resistance and its reversal, topoisomerase drugs, apoptosis, dose intensity and escalation, gene therapy and haematopoietic support.Table of Contents List of contributorsSeries editor's prefaceAbbreviations1.
