Aims and Scope

An international forum on all aspects of antimicrobial and antitumor chemotherapy

Chemotherapy publishes original research articles and state-of-the-art reviews on all aspects of antimicrobial and antitumor chemotherapy. The results of experimental and clinical investigations into the microbiological and pharmacological properties of antibacterial, antiviral, and antitumor compounds are major topics of publication. Papers selected for the journal offer data concerning the efficacy, toxicology, and interactions of new drugs in single or combined applications. Studies designed to determine the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of similar preparations and comparing their efficacy are also included. Special emphasis is given to the development of drug resistance, an increasing problem worldwide.
