Part of the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology book series (HEP, volume 101)


Traditionally, the only curative measures for neoplastic diseases have been surgery and/or radiation therapy. These modalities cure only localized forms. Since they are disseminated malignancies, the leukemias require systemic therapy. Collaborative research efforts between chnicians and pharmacologists over the past 30 years have enabled the development of regimens that are curative for several subsets of patients with acute leukemia.


Acute Leukemia Cytosine Arabinoside Chronic Leukemia Asparagine Synthetase Phosphoramide Mustard
