Cancer Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy Review is the first book devoted entirely to providing the "must-know" facts on each cancer agent, including their pharmacokinetics, FDA-approved indications, toxicity, interactions, and other important information that is commonly found on board examinations and essential for any clinician or practitioner to review.

The authors, an oncologist and two pharmacists, have developed a handy question-and-answer format to present the material in digestible bursts.

As the pharmacology section continues to represent a major portion of the medical oncology exam and a key component on oncology MOC exams, this portable study guide will help prepare anyone looking to fine-tune their knowledge on cancer drugs before the test. Not to mention, with recent advancements in the field of cancer treatment, it has become more cumbersome to recall and maintain essential knowledge of every cancer therapeutic, making this book not only an exam resource but also a handy quick reference for oncologists and pharmacists alike.

Key Features:

  • Conveniently organized and arranged by drug class and subtypes for easier recall and classification
  • Includes proper dosage adjustments to account for liver and kidney dysfunction
  • Features tables throughout that provide quick reference regarding FDA-approved medications
  • Simplified diagrams and illustrations facilitate the pharmacokinetic processes
