Dr Nathan has written a history and commentary on the present status of medical oncology and the treatment of malignant hematologic disorders. Personal experiences and stories of colleagues provide first-hand accounts of patients and of how cancer treatment is now using targeted therapy. Seen through the treatment of Mario's rare subtype of childhood leukemia, Joan's breast cancer, and Ken's gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), the development of chemotherapies is presented from a clinical researcher's standpoint.
