London Elsevier, a world-leading healthcare and scientific publisher, is set to launch a new online-only oncology review journal. Update on Cancer Therapeutics, edited by Giuseppe Giaccone, Richard Schilsky and Paul Sondel, will be published quarterly, premiering in June 2006. Update on Cancer Therapeutics will provide a valuable new resource for clinicians seeking to stay current by publishing timely reviews on progress and achievements in clinical oncology and cancer therapeutics. Reviews focus on recent advances in the understanding of anti-cancer drugs, biological agents and the multi-disciplinary management of specific malignancies.

"We are committed to providing up-to-date, useful and clear reviews of the most important perspectives in oncology that have been recently identified," explained Editor, Paul Sondel. "Each issue of Update on Cancer Therapeutics reflects a spectrum of reviews presenting recent data, conclusions and recommendations that advance our understanding of anti-cancer drugs, specific malignancies and immunotherapy-host responses," added Editor Richard Schilsky. "This format also enables user-friendly focused summaries of newer concepts and practices that complement both standard textbook chapters as well as initial reports of new findings," noted Editor Giuseppe Giaccone.

Subscribers will have full access to each issue as well as articles in press on the journal's website, www.updateoncancer.com.
