About this item
Despite the significant advances in cancer therapy made through constant evaluation and analysis of treatment aftereffects, the disease still remains the foremost cause of mortality worldwide killing more than 12 million people annually. Extensive research over the last few years has revealed different molecular targets which aided in the development of many drugs for treating diverse cancers. Subsequently, several mono-targeted chemotherapeutics exhibiting extreme specificity towards the key molecules involved in various signaling pathways have emerged which are generally used as the chief regimen in the comprehensive treatment of almost all the cancers.This book will give a detailed description of chemoresistance and chemosensitization, targets for chemosensitization and the new approaches adapted in the process of chemosensitization. Furthermore, the book will explicate the role of various chemosensitizers, both natural and synthetic in sensitizing cancer cells and also detail the current research findings on chemosensitization of different cancers types in pre-clinical and clinical settings.
