Overview

Dr. V. Craig Jordan's conversations with hundreds of women with breast cancer and his passion to help find a cure for the disease have compelled him to gather eminent cancer specialists to contribute to this book. Distinguished physicians, scientists, breast cancer advocates, and breast cancer survivors are assembled here to answer numerous questions about tamoxifen. Written for both the clinician and patients, this book is a premier source of information about the world's leading drug for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. 310 pp, 28 chapters; includes 40 tables, 68 colorful figures, and over 50 color and b&w photographs.

For more than a quarter of a century, author and editor Dr. V. Craig Jordan has been involved with finding a cure for breast cancer. He has pioneered the evolution of ICI 46,474 from its birth in the laboratory to what is today tamoxifen-the world's most prescribed drug for the treatment of breast cancer, and the only drug in FDA history approved for the prevention of breast cancer. Dr. Jordan is the recipient of numerous awards, including the prestigious Block Award for Distinguished Achievement in Cancer Research, the Inaugural Brinker International Award for Breast Cancer Research, and the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics Award for Research on Human Disease.
