Summary "With a focus on clinical developmental approaches to the use of cytotoxins and immunotoxins, this book discusses possibilities for cancer therapy. It is a valuable resource for scientists, researchers, and clinicians involved in the development of new treatments that can help keep cancer under control, and may ultimately lead to a cure."--Jacket
