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. The final chapter covers the various tumors, and the agent or agents of choice for each tumor.
