Introduction

Advances in Cancer Drug Targets is an e-book series that brings together recent expert reviews published on the subject with a focus on strategies for synthesizing and isolating organic compounds and elucidating the structure and nature of DNA.

The reviews presented in this series are written by experts in pharmaceutical sciences and molecular biology. These reviews have been carefully selected to present development of new approaches to anti-cancer therapy and anti-cancer drug development.

The contents of this book include chapters on heat shock protein 90, spindle assembly checkpoint, ErbB receptors, anti-tumor effects of bisphosphonates, biomarkers for risk assessment and prevention of breast cancer, fibrates action in Daunorubicin chemical reaction and many more.

The reference work serves to give readers a brief yet comprehensive glance at current theory and practice behind employing chemical compounds for tackling tumor suppression, DNA site specific drug targeting and the inhibition of enzymes involved in growth control pathways. This e-book volume will be of special interest to molecular biologists and pharmaceutical scientists.
