The application of basic scientific principles from medicinal chemistry and molecular pharmacology, and new discoveries in biology, to the development of new anti-cancer drugs. Important examples of drug targets, and small molecules (either currently approved drugs or those under investigation) that target them, are discussed. Classes of drug targets discussed include: kinases, small monomeric G proteins, prenyltransferases, transcription factors, nuclear receptors, cell cycle proteins, cytoskeletal proteins, and topoisomerases.
