BISAC: MED062000

This compilation attempts to provide readers with brief and concise information on different types of cancer, their origins, and available treatment options. Protein kinase inhibitors, currently in clinical practice and under research for potential clinical usefulness, are also reviewed. Currently employed gene therapy strategies, obstacles, and challenges in cancer gene therapy are presented, focusing on the latest nanotechnological advancements in this field including gene transfer methods, vectors, and their current successful applications in cancer gene therapy. Lastly, sulfamethoxazole is examined for its history of combating several microbial infections by affecting folic acid biosynthesis inhibiting dihydropteroate synthetase.
