From the Back Cover:

Praise for the Serial
"The book provides superb reading material which chemists and pharmacologists interested in the area of chemotherapy will surely enjoy reading."
--JOURNAL OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES
During the past 50 years, many chemicals of either synthetic or natural origin have been successfully used in the treatment of cancer. Most, if not all, of these drugs were developed empirically based on their antitumor activities in vitro and in vivo. Studies of topoisomerases as antitumor drug targets have been particularly intensive over the past decade. This is in part due to the recent identification of topoisomerases as the molecular targets for many antitumor drugs. New and improved therapies for cancer are being developed through studies of these novel drugs.
This book will be a long-lasting reference for students and researchers of pharmacology, toxicology, molecular biology, oncology, and infectious diseases.
