Kinase Inhibitor Drugs covers a wide and comprehensive range of topics about kinase-targeted inhibitors in cancer therapy, one of the hottest drug targets in modern drug discovery. It brings together and summarizes important information and advances in the field to allow researchers and drug discoverers to easily discern the state of targeted cancer drug discovery. Complete with case studies of approved kinase inhibitors or those in late-phase clinical trials for cancer therapy, this is an ideal reference for pharmaceutical scientists developing small molecule and biotech drugs to treat cancer.
