Progress in the early detection of malignant neo motherapy, surgery and radiology are often ineffective for the therapy of a large variety of established metastatic can plasms, coupled with novel approaches for the therapy of cer in patients. When one considers the insidiousness of such neoplasms, may ultimately yield safe and well-tolerated agents for the selective therapy of solid malignancies. New progressive neoplastic growth and the emergence of con tinuously more aggressive and malignant cellular subpop therapeutic approaches, directed towards the biochemical ulations one is overwhelmed with the challenges inherent in and molecular targets identified in the earlier volumes of this series, may ultimately lead to the generation of new mo attempting to control malignant neoplasms.
