The Lexicomp Drug Information Handbook for Oncology supports the needs of oncology professionals involved in prescribing, preparing, and administering therapy.

This handbook provides healthcare professionals with vital information on antineoplastic agents, ancillary medications, combination chemotherapy regimens, and dosing protocols.

The Special Topics section reviews cancer-related issues, such as the management of EGFR inhibitor toxicities: dermatologic, ocular, and gastrointestinal; venous thromboembolism in the cancer patient; chronic pain management (cancer); hospice (end of life) care; palliative care medicine (cancer); hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; management of infections; safe handling of hazardous drugs; and emetogenic potential of antineoplastic agents in children.
