Preface

Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research - Anti-Cancer Agents presents on recent developments in various therapeutic approaches against different types of cancer. The book is a valuable resource for pharmaceutical scientists, postgraduate students and researchers seeking updated and critical information for devising research plans in anti-cancer research and developing clinical trials.

The chapters are written by authorities in the field. The contents of this volume represent exciting recent researches on advanced gastrointestinal cancers, breast cancer, cancer chemo-prevention and treatment, clinical anticancer nanodrug, adiponectin-based therapeutics, cancer vaccines, and chemotherapy medication. I hope that the readers will find these reviews valuable and thought provoking so that they may trigger further research in the quest for the new and novel therapies against cancers.

I am grateful for the timely efforts made by the editorial personnel, especially Mr. Mahmood Alam (Director Publications), and Mr. Shehzad Naqvi (Senior Manager Publications) at Bentham Science Publishers.
