Editorial Reviews

"The authors have accomplished their goal of producing a readily available hematology and oncology reference for office-and hospital-based clinicians. Clinicians of all disciplines involved in the treatment of patients with hematology and oncology disorders would benefit from the addition of Hematology-Oncology Therapy to their library. It would also be beneficial to pharmacies specializing in chemotherapy preparation in both community clinics and hospitals. Students and postgraduate residents and fellows would also benefit from this reference book."--The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
