Vascular-Targeted Therapies in Oncology (0470012943) cover image
Vascular-Targeted Therapies in Oncology provides an interesting insight to the current status and future potential of vascular-disrupting approaches in cancer management. Emphasis is placed on target development, preclinical assessment, and the use of such targeted approaches in combination with conventional treatment regimens and the current clinical status of these therapies.
