Cancer Chemotherapy: Medical Outline Series discusses the benefits and risks of cancer chemotherapy. This book is composed of 11 chapters that cover the pharmacologic and therapeutic potentials of some chemotherapeutic agents.

Considerable chapters are devoted to some cancer chemotherapeutic agents, including alkylating agents, methotrexate, 6-mercaptopurine, 5-fluorouracil, and Vinca rosea alkaloids. Each chapter examines the indications, dosage, toxicity, physiology, chemistry, and pharmacology of the agents.
