About Us

This website is an ongoing effort aimed to provide information on drug therapy, drug interactions and issues related to the provision of pharmaceutical care in cancer patients. The information provided is intended for use by an international audience comprising of healthcare and allied health professionals, complementary and alternative medicine practitioners, trainees and students in the health and pharmaceutical sciences, as well as patients with cancer. All drug information in the database is currently being reviewed internally.
