Herbal Alerts provide quick reference to side effects, drug interactions, and additional information for popular herbs you may encounter in practice.

Updated and expanded Preventing Medication Errors boxes help you ensure safe drug administration. Targeted Therapies to Treat Cancer chapter familiarizes you with cutting-edge cancer treatments such as multikinase inhibitors, angiogenesis inhibitors, and monoclonal antibodies.
