Abstract

A number of neoplastic diseases can be cured with drugs alone or with drugs in combination with other modalities (e.g., choriocarcinoma, Hodgkin’s disease, acute leukemia, Burkitt’s lymphoma, testicular carcinoma). Adjuvant chemotherapy in combination with surgery and/or radiotherapy has increased survival rates for a number of solid tumors. However, the most prevalent forms of human cancer respond poorly or not at all to chemotherapy.
