Drug Resistance in Leukemia and Lymphoma contains material presented at the 2nd International Symposium in Drug Resistance in Leukemia and Lymphoma held at the Free University in Amsterdam in March 1995. In the last decade many studies have been performed in the field of drug resistance. This book reviews the current status and indicates future directions of such studies. Both laboratory scientists and clinicians have recognized the importance of drug resistance for the clinical outcome of patients with leukemia and lymphoma. New in vitro cell culture assays have been developed and the in vitro drug resistance measured with these assays has been shown to correlate with both short and long-term clinical response to chemotherapy. This book is, therefore, an essential guide for researchers and clinicians.
