Antitumor chemotherapy is nowadays a very active field of research, and a huge amount of information on the topic is generated every year. Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book addresses the need for an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. The focus of Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs is on the mechanism of action of antitumor drugs from the molecular point of view and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumor agents, aiming at the rationalization of the action of this type of drug, which would allow the design of new active structures.

* Explains the biological basis of cancer treatment and the role of chemists in improving anticancer drugs
* Provides the historical background and serves as a comprehensive and practical guide on cancer research and anticancer drug development
* Includes coverage of different approaches to treating cancer, drug resistance, and a chapter on cancer prevention
