About the book

In this century, cancer has become one of the major problems and diseases causing predominant death, even surpassing heart diseases. It is characterized by two points; there is no control over the growth of cancer cells, and it can metastasize and migrate from the original site to different parts of the body. Therefore, the early detection and development of effective treatment has become the focus in the field in order to palliate and cure this critical disease. The main manner of doing so is by running well designed oncology trial(s) among cancer patients. Therefore, the main aim of this book is to statistically review oncology trials designed among cancer patients in the past and present in order to detect their significant role in developing an effective anti-cancer treatment(s).

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
