Summary note
"Written for Pain Management Practitioners, Oncologists, Oncology Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers, Pharmacologists, and Primary Care Practitioners, as well as students in these fields, this reference provides insight into chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain cancer survivors suffer. It reviews the basic and clinical research into the normal physiology of pain transmission pathways, neuropathic pain pathology, the chemotherapeutic drug mechanisms of action and adverse effects, chemotherapy-induced neuropathy, and drug discovery efforts for treatment. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this reference covers both basic science and clinical research, providing a unique insight into drug discovery efforts"--Provided by publisher.
