The FDA has launched a new Web site with cancer-related information for health care professionals and lay audiences. The site (http://www.fda.gov/cder/cancer) provides access to many FDA documents, including detailed data on approved oncology drugs, including uses, product labels, and transcripts of pertinent advisory committee discussions; a flow chart to help select the starting dosage for cytotoxic drugs in oncology; general advice on how to obtain access to experimental drugs; information about reporting adverse events; assessment tools for conducting clinical investigations, such as a staging manual for different types of cancers; and information about filing an application for an investigational new drug and about investigational review boards.
